I am new to TT game but after I play for some weeks now, it's really interesting and i feel i am sailing well through the techniques you're teaching. However, i feel quite disappointed while i start counting the points as it's confusing to me.

Could you be kind enough to explain how the service starts and how it gets changed when i lose points. Why love ends with 2 and then it goes on with no. Ex. Love all, love 1, love 2 then 2.1 until this i am ok.  Can you give some examples as if two players are playing and how the points are getting changed until the game finish. I hope that should help me.

Hi Magesh,

AT the start of the game the score is Love all or 0 to 0.  A player serves for 2 serves at the start of the game.  It doesn't matter whether you win or lose the point you keep serving for the 2 points.  Then the other players serves for 2 serves and so on.  If the score reaches 10 all then players have one serve each till a player is 2 points ahead.
