    to anyone not familiar with this- i think it's the best online tennis game ever!
    simple yet tactical and smart.

    however, i just cannot pass no. 6 - Mr. Wilander :(
    anyone else playing this by any chance?
    i was wondering if some of you reached No.1

    I got to Agassi (#3), and then gave up in frustration.

    Wilander was the first player who truly broke me. I beat Becker 14-12 in a fifth set, I beat Kuerten in a 5th set after losing the first two and saving match points in the 3rd, 4th and 5th sets, and then against Wilander I quickly went up 2-0, and lost in 5 after having match points in every remaining set, and serving for it god knows how many times.

    The same thing happened against Connors.

    now i remember where i heard about this game :)
    you mentioned it somewhere and i looked for it. good find!
    as i'm not one of the "top spin 4" guys i usually play only this when i have 10 min.

    damn this Wilander. and clay is the most frustrating to win on.
    hard court is the most fun to play on, and grass is mostly ace race..
    Aggassi? way to go!
    the problem with this game that it makes me all sweaty while at work ;)

    My fingers get tied up too easily :lol:

    Against most of these guys serve and volley works well but against Agassi it's just impossible! I'm tempted to look for codes online and skip to Sampras to see how I do. I'm able to triple bagel Goran now, but I'd imagine Sampras will be a different challenge altogether :shock:

    Ok, I googled them:

    15#Horde
    14#Pizza
    13#Smash
    12#Towel
    11#Amber
    10#Scrub
    9#Puppy
    8#Manly
    7#Haiku
    6#Giant
    5#Exile
    4#Chill
    3#Devil
    2#Blitz
    1#Whale

    Good luck breaking Sampras :(

    [EDIT]

    Lol, just lost 6-4 6-2 6-0 in what felt like 3 minutes :shock:

    yea i did that already cause i didn't remember one of the codes.
    but i go by the book ;)
    i wanna win fair and square.

    you know, i really appreciate what they did in this rather simple game's moves.
    i like the ability to control a really deep shot and right afterwards do a kind of a short side volley :)
    BUT- where the hell is Federer?!

    if they could only make an 2 player on-line version then we could really talk business !

    Lolz, I just played this for the first time a minute ago and somehow I beat Pat Cash in 5 sets.

    0-6, 7-6, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4!

    I was able to beat it. The hardest one is Borg - by far! Beating him is terribly difficult. Sampras is a whole lot easier...

    good to know.
    you probably have very good concentration and reflexes.
    once i'm a bit off they start to beat me.

    This game is so hard. I was tempted and jumped in right away with the codes and played Lendl and got smashed. Then tried Agassi and got smashed again.

    It was fun but after 3 sets against Cash I had had enough.

    A while ago I played this religiously, I figured a few shortcuts out like jumping up on their services and constantly serving up the T, so I've finished the game.

    But after firing it back up again, I've got awful rusty, struggling against Cash.

    i don't know, it depends... the surface really makes a lot of difference on strategy. most of the time, going up the net at the right moment is best.
    but as it grows harder, especially on clay, they start to outsmart you...

    i also hate it when they figure out your serve and start hitting return winners :mad:

    did you just jump to Sampras with the cheat codes or you passed them all?
    it doesn't mean he's the hardest!
    i'm not so sure you'll be able to pass numbers 6 to 2 so easily.
    did you even try?

    Sampras is really easy once you figure out how you should play against him. I think my best score against him was like, 6-1 thrice?

    Borg is something else. I've figured out a nice strategy against him, but I've to be really focussed to succeed...

    I'm not really that good, it's just not that hard :D
    And yues, if you're a bit off against the likes of Borg, that's deadly :D

    Yesh, that's how to win against Sampras. Every serve down the T and returning very close to the service line, and if somehow you have to play a rally, immediately go to the net.

    On grass, that's a good strategy. Winning on hard court isn't too difficult if you know how to play from the baseline and if you know how to finish it at the net. Clay is a different story, you really have to come to the net - but only at the right times. That's probably why Borg is so hard...

    Borg wasn't too tough for me. I think it was just Pete's serving that threw me off.

    i'm currently stuck at Lendl on clay.
    clay is the hardest to win on 'cause serves lose all their effect.
    best way is to cut to the net at exactly the right moment, but f0cking Lendl manage to outmaneuver me at the end.

    Just beat Wilander 6-4 7-5 6-7 0-6 6-4.

    I love this game. I was so pissed off losing the third set because I was up 5-2 in the tiebreak. I had to really maintain composure. :)

    Finally beat Pete, did it in 4 sets! I played the first couple matches then used the code to go straight to Pete. I like playing on grass the best.

    I love how mentally challenging this game is, when you start getting annoyed the whole things falls to pieces, but when you finally relax again you really do play better and you start to win again.

    And just as you've relaxed enough when you're in a winning position, you become too casual and you fall to pieces again :lol:

    This game is so annoying.

    Just lost to Wilander 2-6, 5-7, 3-6 after going up 2-0 in the first set and 4-0 in the second. Then there were multiple games where I would be up 40-0 and just lose it. I'm still trying to figure out exactly why I do this, because this is something that happens to me in a bunch of other videogames and real life tennis as well

    I beat him!

    4-6 6-3 3-6 6-4 6-1!

    I was a little mad because I lead 4-2 in the first set then basically gave away 4 games and was like "here we go again...", but managed to pull it together a few times and won. Now onto the rest...lol

    It took two sets, but I figured Connors out!

    4-6 4-6 6-1 6-3 6-3

    and nope, I should look for the app later

    edit: and then Lendl falls!

    1-6 6-4 6-1 3-6 6-2

    Apparently It's my thing to lose the first set at least and then work out how to beat them, but only in five sets. Also apparently I have a lot of free time today

    Agassi too easy with 6-3 6-4 6-4

    I've just downloaded it, thanks Muse :D

    I couldn't even imagine how it would work, but the control system is so intuitive.

    It just works :)

    [EDIT]

    Forgot to add, yes it's free :)

    thanks for the IOS free game.
    it's totally different cause you only control the hits but it's great for an occasional no.2.. ;)
    great graphics.

    I was camping at the net..
    Just go to the net. On your serve, serve at the T, he will return it then you should hit the ball deep in the center and when he is about to hit the ball, go to the net...
    On his serve return deep to any of side and go to the net...
    It worked for me
