The scoring comprises points, games and sets. Play begins with no points (love-all). The first point scores 15, the second 30, the third 40 and the fourth the game. If play reaches 40-all (called deuce) the next point won is called advantage to the winning player, and the game is then won by winning the subsequent point. The score can return to deuce indefinitely if a player keeps losing the point that would win them the game.
