    Wow, that game is actually fun and not only that, it's pretty realistic too in some ways.
    Like if you decide to open up the angles, you better hit a good shot or the opponent will be all over you.

    thanks...it works now...also..has anyone tried serving and volleying on the ad side by serving out wide? it's the easiest two shot combo to win a point

    I rock at this game now, but the strategy is simple: paint the lines cross court.

    Yeah, and if your opponent returns it run up the middle and smash it away.

    ^ This game is mind-humbingly easy! I've lost 3 games total since I started playing it! Okay, enough gloating, here's some random tips:

    1. My bread and butter is serving out wide, then taking several steps into the court in anticipation of the return and hitting it cross court for a winner. I can win entire games, 4 straight points, by doing nothing BUT this.
    2. The secret to hitting winners is getting right on TOP of the ball when your opponent is out wide, and hitting it crosscourt RIGHT OFF THE BOUNCE. Take time away.
    3. Chipping and charging off returns is better than serve and volleying. Why? Because you can stand right on top of the service line off the returns, getting to the net faster.

    Also, as you are hitting the ball you can control the power by using the up and down key.

    WHOO. In an exhibition, beat a person with 10 all stats/categories/whatever with 1 in everything.

    But man, it's hard with no footwork. Really hard.

    I haven't lost a game playing with Graf though, through a million tournaments and whatever. Replay value, man.

    I feel invincible with either of the Martinas, Sanchez, or Graf. Good movement makes the game easy. What LostMyMojo did is awesome. It's tough when you can't chase down the balls.

    my return strategy is to hit the return anywhere and go to the net they usualy chip it and you just smash it

    Try playing as Navratil, she has the best overhead smash.
