a deuce 6:6 in games [tennis terminology]

"If there is a deuce 6:6 in games, there is a tie-break."

Does it sound natural? A deuce 6:6 in games? Or should I change it somehow...?

    I think - for tennis specifically - they say "the set is tied at 6 [games]-all." I believe the "games" is optional. I think "deuce" is only used for the score of an individual game.

    Well, I've already changed the sentence, and now it's "When there is a tie-break in a set, how many successful strokes does a player need to make in order to win the set?" - would that sound smooth to your ear pob14?
