From there the first point is called 15, the second point 30, and the third point 40. After 40 comes the game point. The tricky thing about the game point is you have to win by two. So, if it is tied 40:40, which is also referred to as “deuce”, the next person to win a point receives an “Advantage”.
Once players reach a score of deuce, advantage scoring replaces the point values. Therefore, if the server wins the point at deuce, then the score is ‘advantage in’ or ‘ad in’ for short. Conversely, if the receiver wins the point at deuce, then the score is ‘advantage out’ or ‘ad out’ for short.
Tennis scoring terms and what they mean. Unlike a normal 1 point or 2 runs like any other normal sports, tennis' first three points are 15, 30 and 40.
The winner of a tennis game must win with a two point advantage. In other words, if the score is 40-0 and the server wins the next point, the server wins the game. Consequently, if the server loses the next point the score is 40-15 and the server must continue to serve and play out that game.
Once in play, each player will attempt to win the point by keeping the ball within the court and preventing the opponent from getting the ball back or forcing them to make a mistake. The point will end when someone misses the ball, hits the ball out of the court or into the net, or the ball bounces twice.
Break Point, Set Point, and Match Points When the receiving player is one point away from winning a Game, this is referred to as break point. If the player goes on to win the point, this is referred to as a service break.
If both the players make it 40, then the score is called “deuce.”. After deuce, a player must win two consecutive points: the first point, known as “advantage” and the game-winning point. If the opposite player succeeds to score the next point, the game once again returns back to deuce.
