How Do You Score In Tennis
How do you score in tennis? There are a lot of hot chicks that play tennis, but we don't mean that type of scoring. Tennis is a hard sport to learn and an even harder sport to master. Without the physical ability, trying to score in tennis is a futile effort. Some of the world's top athletes have spent their entire lives learning how to score in tennis and they can't even win a game. Remember the incredibly hot, incredibly mediocre Anna Kournikova? Seriously though, here's how you score in a tennis match.
- The points. In a tennis match, the first person to score four times is the winner. The person serving the ball gets his score called out first. Before either player scores, the score is called "love, love," meaning zero to zero. The next score is fifteen, then 30 and then 40 in that order. The fourth point is called "game point." If you're the server and you've scored twice and your opponent's only scored once, score would be 30 to fifteen.
- Deuce, Deuce. In the case of a tie at the end of the game, you have to score two times in a row to win. The first time you score, you get what is called the "advantage." If you score again, you've won the match.
- Tie Breaker. Most tennis matches are "best of" sets. If it's best of three, the first person to win two games is the winner. In special occasions players have to play tie breaker games where you score slightly different then usual. Points in a tie-break games are scored consecutively from zero to one, to two, to three, on up. The player that wins a tie breaker has scored seven points and has at least a two point lead over the opponent. The tie break game will continue, even past the seven point marker, until one player has and holds a two point lead. "In a tie-break game, whichever player's turn it is to serve next gets to serve the first point." The two following points are served by the other player. After that, each player serves for two points, then serving switches to the other player until someone finally wins. The first server in the tie-breaker game receives the ball for first game of the following set.
- Actually scoring. Knowing how to score in a tennis match and actually scoring are two different things. The reason a tennis match can be so intense is the fact that it's continuous action until someone makes a mistake. The only way you can score is if you hit the ball over the net and it bounces past your opponent on the baseline of their side of the court. If the ball hits the net, doesn't bounce or goes over the sideline, your opponent gets the point. Scoring in a tennis match isn't easy is it?
