How to Keep Score in Tennis
H3: How to Score a Game in Tennis
Tennis scoring can seem a little tricky at first, but you’ll get the hang of it in no time. Every tennis game starts at Love-Love. Love equates to zero, and whoever is serving calls out the score. After one winning point, a player gets to 15, then 30, then 40, then game.
So let’s say the server wins the first point. The score he would now shout out before serving is “15-Love.” If the opponent wins the next point, the score would change to “15-15” or “15 all. The next winning point would move the score to either “15-30” or “30-15” depending on which player won the point, with the server always calling out his own score first.
If both players get to 40, however, a player must win by two points to win the game. So let’s say the score becomes “40-40” (also known as “40-all” or “deuce.” Whoever wins this point now has the advantage. If the serve wins the point, he calls out “40 all, ad in.” If the opponent had won the point, the score would be “40-all, ad out.”
To win the game, a player must win an advantage point and then another point. If the player has the advantage and then loses the next point, the score goes back to “40-40” or “deuce.” The game can go on infinitely if neither player scores two concurrent points.
