A tennis tie-breaker is played when the game score in a set is 6-6. At this point, players will engage in a 7-point tie-break to decide the set.

The tennis scoring system is a well thought out set of rules and guidelines specifically designed to guarantee a winner at the end of a tennis game, set, or match.

There are several types of tiebreaks, such as the 7 point tiebreak and the 10 point tiebreak. The former is the most commonly used. However, the 10 point tiebreak is used to decide the final set of Australian Open matches. Wimbledon enforces a 7 point tiebreak when the score of the final set reaches 12-12.
When tennis players win six games each, they generally play a tiebreaker to decide the winner of the set. (Tennis rules governing tiebreakers differ for team tennis and for the Wimbledon Championship and may differ for local tournaments as well.)

In doubles, the player on the opposing team due to serve will serve these points. Players or teams switch ends of the court every six points (e.g. when the score is 4-2), and to score this tiebreak game, you use, “zero” “one”, “two”, “three”, etc. The first player or team to win seven points, by two, wins the tiebreak.

If the trailing player wins the game, the score is tied at 6–6 and a special tiebreaker game is played. The winner of the tiebreak wins the set by a score of 7–6 (or 6–7).
