At 6 all in a set, then you play a 7-point-tie break. Sometimes, you play a 10-point-tie break in the lieu of the third set... it depends.

To improve on this answer I have played tennis for years so in a set you play a tie breaker in a 5 all set

How is the scoring procedure different in a tiebreak to that of a game in tennis?

Most of a tennis match is scored as follows:1 game = 15, 30, 40, deuce (if both are tied 40-40), (advantage only on ad-scoring)In tiebreak scoring, the point totals can vary. Professionals go off of a 7-point tiebreak, where the first player to 7 points while being ahead of his or her opponent by at least two points wins. The end of each rally is 1 point. Players can go beyond 7 points if one player is not ahead by at least two points. (Many junior tournaments for kids 18 and under choose a 10-point tiebreaker)Basically, a game goes by 15, 30, 40, deuce, (advantage), while a tiebreak goes by one point increments.

How do you play a 7 point tie breaker per USTA?

The Coman Tiebreak Procedure What is it?The Coman Tiebreak Procedure is the same as the present tiebreak (set or match), except that ends are changed after the first point, then after every four points (i.e., after the 5th, 9th, 13th, 17th points, etc.), and at the conclusion of the tiebreak. The scoring in the Coman Tiebreak Procedure is the same as a traditional set or match tiebreak, and the procedure for playing the Coman Tiebreak is the same as a set or match tiebreak. For example, if the Coman Tiebreak Procedure is used when the set score is 6-6, the player whose turn it is to serve shall serve the first point from the deuce court; after the first point, the players shall change ends and the following two points shall be served by the opponent(s) (in doubles, the player of the opposing team due to serve next), starting with the ad court; after this, each player/team shall serve alternately for two consecutive points (starting with the ad court), changing ends after every four points, until the end of the tiebreak game.When will it be used?USTA will use the Coman Tiebreak Procedure at all USTA League Region and Section Championships for all set and match tie breaks. Use of the Coman Tiebreak Procedure is encouraged during local league play.Principal Advantages1. Fairness - By changing ends more frequently, the effects of the elements (sun, wind, etc.) are distributed more evenly between the two opponents as opposed to playing six consecutive points before changing ends.2. In doubles, the server will always serve from the same end of the court, rather than having to serve from both ends.
