Tennis points are scored using Love (0), 15, 30, 40, Advantage (if necessary) and then game. Players typically play best out of 3 sets or best out of 5 sets. The first person to get 6 games wins the set unless it goes to 6 games each which would require a tiebreaker. The first person to win 7 points wins the tiebreaker. You must win by a margin of 2 points; and so, a tiebreaker has the possibility to go over 7 points

You may toss a coin or simply agree upon someone serving first. The server then starts off behind the baseline to the right of the marker and attempts the first serve into the left service box. If the ball goes in that service box, the play resumes. If the serve does not go into the left service box, then the server gets another try. Missing a serve is referred to as a fault. If the server misses the serve again (twice), then it is a double fault and the server loses that point.

So, if the server loses the first point, the server would call out Love - 15 which means that the server has Love (0) and the opponent has 15. If the server had hit the service in the left service box and won the point, then the server would call out 15 - Love (0). The server should call his score first.

The next point would start with the server behind the baseline standing to the left of the marker. This time, the server must attempt to serve the ball into the right service box. The server should continue to serve until the game is over. If the score ends up being 40 - 40 which is called Deuce, then the next point would result in Advantage for one of the players; and so, the next score could be 40 - Advantage which is referred to as Ad-Out. If the server had the advantage, the score would be Advantage - 40 or Ad-In. The person with the Advantage must win the next point to win the game; otherwise, the score returns to 40 - 40 or Deuce.

Whoever wins the game gets 1 game within that set. The opponent then gets their turn to serve. The individual games are scored in the same manner each time regardless of the server. In tennis, the server typically has a greater chance of winning the game particularly for the skilled servers since the server could possibly get a few free points or unreturned serves. If the server lands the ball in the service box and the opponent is not able to touch it, then it is called an Ace which results in a point.

The servers will continue serving games until one person reaches 6 games which represents a set. If the score is 6 games each, then a tiebreaker is played to 7 points. The first one to reach 7 points in the tiebreaker with a margin of 2 points wins the set. Then, the same scoring process begins for the second set and so on. If you are playing best out of 3 sets, then the first person to win 2 sets wins the match. If you are playing best out of 5 sets, then the first person to win 3 sets wins the match.
