Default Wimbledon 2018

It's starting on 2nd July.

It's been a loong time since I took interest in summer sports.

Can someone remind me of game rules please.
In exchange, if you follow the thread I'll drop gems for you in the future.
You can buy drinks or dinner or holiday with it.

Q1. What is the duration of each game? I think there are 1st and 2nd set but if it's tie, it can go on and on till someone loses?

Q2. By above, there will never be a draw result...right?

cheers.

Men's matches are five sets maximum, three sets to a player to win. Women's matches are three sets maximum, two sets to win. Mixed doubles matches are the same as women's.

Six games to a player to win a set, but it has to be by two clear games. So you can't win a set 6 - 5. In that scenario it goes to 7 - 5 or 6 - 6 where a tie-break ensues to decide the set.

The first player to reach seven points wins the tie-break and the set. But if the score reaches six-points-all, the set winner is the first player to win two points in a row.

Tie-breaks don't apply in the fifth set (men's) or third set (women's), where the set and match is decided by two clear games, and can in theory go on indefinitely.

A game also has to be won by two clear points. If it continually goes to deuce it can also in theory go on indefinitely.

Thank you, Thank you, WL.

geez, You've explained it very clearly but it seems all too complicated.
I'm gonna have to watch a couple of games to understand but the bottom line is.... there will be no tie/draw like football then.

I'll probably follow women's game only since I can't wait for 5 sets!!!
I mean, in football, it is all decided within 90 mins man. Can't be waiting for result indefinitely. I am an impatient git.

Hope you subscribed to this thread so when I drop some gems in near future, you can go and collect it if you wish.

Yeah, a good tennis match is better than a bad footie match, but a good footie match is best, of course.

Dunno how to subscribe to stuff.

geez, that's too long.
What happened to these guys then? Did they have dinner break inbetween as well?
I'd like to know the result in 90 minutes preferably.
