Enigma 193: Game, set and match
From New Scientist #1339, 6th January 1983 [link]
This is a letters-for-digits tennis teaser. As always different letters stand consistently for different digits. The final score in our tennis club’s Mens Singles final was A–B, C–A, D–E, F–G, F–E. Tie breakers occur at 8-8 and are recorded as 9-8 (or 8-9) and are not allowed in the final set. This particular match was very close: at two stages in different sets the eventual winner had match point against him.
Give the score (in numerical form) of the final three sets.
Enigma 101 is called “Game, set & match”.
