							The answer is 3/4 and not 2/5. Let`s see how!    Total possible cases are A wins the next point and wins the game, B wins the next two point and wins the game, B wins the next point followed by A winning the next point. As for the 4th point, as both players have equal skill, therefore probability for the next point is 1/2. When A wins the next point P=1/2, when B wins the next point followed by A winning the next point is P=(1/2)*(1/2)=1/4. Net probability by which A wins the game is hence 3/4.
