    well, i knew it was going to happen. After playing the game 1 time, it was constantly on my mind.

    I walked into a video game store at a local mall, and saw an xbox set-up to play. It had the demo disc with topspin on it. After playing it again, i walked out with an xbox and the game. :oops:

    I understand; I ended up with a Dreamcast because of Tennis 2k2. I had an X Box when Topspin came out so I just got it the first day it came out. The only problem I have with it is that the computer is just too easy. No worries, you're not the only one who's been consumed by a tennis game.

    Do you have DSL or a cable modem? Do you have a router or a hub for you computer? If you do, there is a free site out there called

    www.xbconnect.com

    It acts just like xbox live but is free! I have been on it playing halo for the past few weeks. There are over 100 people on there all the time. I am not sure if there is support for topspin but you should check it out. Basically you connect your xbox and computer up to the same router or hub. Then you install the xbconnect software on your computer. After it is installed start the software and then turn on your xbox. The software tricks the xbox into thinking it is on a service like xbox live. It is great.

    Like I said I have been on for 3 weeks playing people Halo with people from all over the us. Just make sure you have at least a 128 upload speed though or you won't be able to use it.

    Anyway, though I would put that out there if you guys haven't heard of it yet.

    I have a cable modem and don't have any problems when i play matches with the lag meter all green. If you watch the lag meter, just stay away from matches that don't have green in it, and you should be fine. You can add me if you want to play, GT= Lionsglare7

    hey bfonz7 whats up? This is lionsglare7, those were some fun matches we had going. Some nice long rallys in them too! If we had enough TW posters playing this game, we could get some tournamets going again. We use to have a bit of them about 2 months ago.

    @Brettolius I normally don't have a headset on because i find them annoying when playing. Plus I had some matches where people are just going on trying to be annoying. But if i know before hand someone wants to talk ill throw it on.

    those were probably some of the best matches i have played, i can never get games off of top like 600 players....but i thought that second match was a hell a first set..and then you figured out my strategy in the 2nd.

    im slowly getting better and better at the online game, i had mastered the career mode but thats not saying much. plus my guy is a exact copy of Guga hahaha
