The concept of importance is defined: importance of a point in a game, of a game in a set, and of a set in a match. From there the chapter obtains also the importance of a point in a match. Are all points equally important? Is the seventh game especially important? What is the most important point in a match? The chapter presents three importance profiles of famous matches as illustrations.

Keywords:   importance, big point, big game, seventh game, importance profile
