The player that wins the next point on a deuce has the “advantage” and if they win another point, they have won the game. If not, the score goes back to deuce. The first player to win 6 “games” wins the set. But again, you must win by at least two games, so if the set score is 6-5, they will continue to play until one player wins 7-5 or the other player dra
