How many games are in a tennis set?

2 Answers

It varies. To win a tennis set you must win 6 games and win by two games. At all majors besides the French Open there are certain sets that will go to tiebreak if nobody can win by 2. However at the French open you must win by 2 games after reaching 6 games.
