# of sets in a tennis match?

I'm watching Blake and Agassi right now and they said it's going to 5 sets. How come sometimes it's 3 sets and other times it's 5?

It depends on the level of tournaments. Most minor tournaments will only go to a best-of-3. These tournaments come in between the major pro championships (US Open, Wimbledon, French Open, and Australian open), which are always best-of-5 sets.

Another thing to note is that women always play best-of-3 sets.

Which would you recommend?

Female Tennis: first to win 2 sets (max 3 sets if one player wins 1 and the other wins 2)

Male Tennis: first to win 3 sets (max 5 sets if one player wins 2 and the other wins 3)

For men,grand slam matches and the finals of the Master tournaments are best-of-five matches.It means that the one who wins 3 sets first ,wins the match.So,the result can be a 3-setter(if the winner does not lose a set;eg.6-1 7-5 6-4), or a 4-setter(if the winner loses 1 set;eg.6-2 6-2 0-6 7-6 or 1-6 6-4 6-1-6-2) or a 5-setter(if the winner loses 2 sets:eg.3-6 7-5 7-6 2-6 6-4 or 6-1 4-6 6-0 0-6 6-2).

For women and the other matches for men,it is a best-of-3 setter.So,the result can either be a 2-setter(if the winner does not lose a set;eg.6-1 6-2) or a 3-setter(if the winner loses 1 set;eg.4-6 6-1 6-0 or 7-5 5-7 6-4)
