Break point

A break point occurs if the receiver, not the server, has a game point. Break points are of particular importance in men’s professional tennis because serving is generally advantageous. The advantage to the server is much less in the women’s game. A receiver who has two (score of 15-40) or three (score of love-40) consecutive chances to win the game has double break point or triple break point, respectively. As with game, set, and match points, break points are not announced.
