Learning About Tennis Scoring in Our Apartments for Rent in Alachua

 
 

With summer fast approaching, the meat of tennis season is upon us. Soon, coverage of Wimbledon, the U.S. Open, and other tournaments will be all over television. Tennis is frustrating to many people because they find keeping track of the score confusing, and there’s actually a historical reason for this. When the game was first being created it was intended for royals and the wealthy, and an unusual scoring system was adopted to keep lower-class people from playing. But that’s all in the past now! Today, watching tennis, and knowing how to keep score, is a great way to spend the hot summer indoors at our apartments for rent in Alachua.

Follow these quick scoring rules to better understand all the confusing tennis terms:

  • A match is made up of sets. A set is made up of games.
  • In a game, the first player to reach four points wins the game. The first point is called 15, the second is called 30, the third is called 40, and after the last point has been won the game is over.
  • If both players have 40 points, the score is called Deuce. At Deuce, one player must win two consecutive points to win the game.
  • The first player to win six games and hold a lead of two games wins the set. If both players have each won six games, a tiebreaker is played to determine who wins the set. The first player to win seven points and be leading by at least two points wins the tiebreaker and the set.
  • In most matches, the first player to win two out of three sets wins the match. However, in the largest tournaments, men are required to win three out of five sets.

With a summer full of tennis ahead, our residents will now be a little better prepared to understand and appreciate the game. For more information on our apartment community, fill out a form on our Contact Us page or stop by today. We would love to give you a tour.
