Why is the third game called the rubber match?
The term drives from contract bridge (the card game). There are two forms of bridge commonly played -- "duplicate", which is used in tournaments, and "rubber". A Rubber in rubber bridge consists of winning two out of three games, so if a match (or a series in sports) is tied at one-to-one, the "rubber" depends on winning that final game, hence the "rubber game" or "rubber match".

Usually a "rubber match" or "rubber game" of a 3 game series isonly played if no one has a chance to sweep the series. If team Awins game 1 and team B wins game 2, it shows ga…me 3 can go eitherway... Sorta like how rubber can bend either way. . Thus, "Rubber game" of the series. . According to Paul Dickson's The New Dickson's BaseballDictionary (Harcourt Brace, 1999), a "rubber game" is "The last anddeciding game of a series when the previous games have been split;e.g., the seventh game of the World Series." This tie-breakingsense of "rubber" apparently originated in the pulse-poundingEnglish game of "bowls," or lawn bowling. Despite its name, bowlshas little in common with American bowling, and consists of rollingwooden balls (called "bowls") across a level green, the objectbeing to get your ball as close as possible to (but not to hit) alittle white ball at the other end of the green. "Rubber" in itstie-breaking sense first appeared in the context of bowls around1599, and was in use by the card-playing crowd (whist, bridge,etc.) by 1744. A set of three games of bridge is still generallyreferred to as a "rubber." . Unfortunately, no one knows where "rubber" in this sense came from.It appears to be unrelated to the elastic sort of "rubber."(Incidentally, our modern elastic "rubber" is short for"India-rubber," from its original source in the East Indies."Rubber" previously meant anything used to rub, smooth or clean.)Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable ventures that the term mayhave referred to two "bowls" rubbing together, a fatal error in thegame of bowls. Or it might be a metaphorical use of "rubber"(something that expunges) referring to the "sudden death" thirdgame of a series, the loss of which would conclusively "rub out"the losing team's hopes. But there is, sad to say, no solidevidence for either theory." . I think that 'rubber match' will mean the match that will decidethe rubber ie the fifth in a series of five. The term rubberdoesn't itself mean decisive.
According to Bill Kellogg - a committee member on the USA DAVISCUP- the International Tennis Federation came up with another termto distinguish between a "match between nation…s" and the"individual match between the players". The term is a tie. Forexample USA vs France is a tie. . The term "rubber" is taken from other sports like cricket. Alsoused in Bridge to stand for 2 out of 3 games. Rubber in tennis is the match between players. The dictionarydefinition says something like this: "a rubber is a decidingcontest of 2 opponents who have previously won their same number ofcontests from each other."
It's usually called a bowling game as opossed to a match.. Actually, a person bowling 10 frames, wheather alone or with someone, is a game. But if they're bowling against som…eone in competition, then its a match.
