The Tennis Pro Set Explained
Keefe Gorman, of Merrill Lynch, has established himself as one of the nation’s top financial advisors over the course of his career. Outside of his work at Merrill Lynch, Keefe Gorman is an accomplished athlete and former pro skier. He likes to stay physically active through sports such as mountain biking and tennis.
Individuals new to the sport of tennis may hear the term pro set and assume it refers to the sets played by professional tennis players, which are won by the first player to reach six games. In reality, the pro set was developed during the days of the Pro Tour and is played to eight games. This extended set remains popular among league players and in collegiate settings, and in fact all Division I doubles matches are played as pro sets. During a pro set, a player must win by a margin of at least two games, with a traditional 7-point tie break occurring should the score reach eight games all. Though less common, some pro sets are played to 10 games. Other than the eight-game goal, a pro set is scored in the same fashion as the more well-known six-game set.
