US Tennis Open winner?

When you win in tennis it is called winning a MATCh. Let me explain the scoring. When two people play tennis they play 6 games to get to what is called a set. The most common scoring of a tennis match is 2 out of 3 sets, but for the men's pro tour it is 3 out of 5. In a GAME, you have to win 4 points. If you have zero you say love, if you have 1 point, you say 15, if you have 2 you say 30, if you have 3 you say 40 if you have won the next point then you have won that game. You have to win 6 games to get a set. If you tie with your opponent 6-6 then you play a tiebreaker to 7 points to determine who wins the last set.
