    Oh yesterday was just a one-off! The PS3 is in the living room now which my mother is in the process of repainting. Hadn't used it for weeks until yesterday and all previous times it has been my sister playing Epic Mickey. I should get my thumb out of my mouth and put it back in my room...

    I REALLY want to play Mario Tennis with my childhood friend. I've only won 10-11 times out of the 70-80 times we played, but it is such a fantastic game. I even love when I lose.

    I'm sure those 10-11 wins felt great.

    Strongo is busy with heists... Me and my gang usually do one heist per day or like yesterday, just messing around with various weaponry in free mode... I should get off GTA one day.

    Let me guess. You were put in Jail in the 80's for a crime you didn't commit, you got out in 2013 and you are still adjusting to this new world.

    All you really need is an internet connection. Get your console signed up, then you're good to go.

    hahaha I can play, but the few times I did, I was put off. I'll try it again tonight. Btw I meant "what strategy to people use" cheesy serve, other stuff etc
    I play online in other games haha - PS4, XB360 and an old PS3 I don't really use

    I had a feeling that is what you meant, but wasn't sure.

    You will find some of the cheesiest cheese around if you play on world tour. That used to be fun in earlier top spin back when you couldn't create a player with 100 power/ 90 serve, etc. On world tour, 1/2 games is like that. Serves that can't be returned, or a weak return to set up their finish. I remember the first time I came up against one of them. I quit and gave him a frustrated F you or something similar, then he says it is not cheating. He was telling the truth, but I had no idea, because how could you possibly let people create players like this that will ruin the game for others? Crazy, like the top spin superguide says, no balance to online any more. I ended up making one of these players myself. I joined them for a while. :cry:

    2kopen is fair enough, I guess.

    If you know who you're play against then it can be the most fun. I play MichaelNadal a lot, FedTheMan and Rock Strongo. They are the players I've played from here. Always fair matches, unless I'm on God Mode. :p

    Hahaha that sounds fun

    When I created my pro, I didn't realise that, once you're lvl 20, you cant upgrade your player further. So my player is very unbalanced. Like, 8/10 serve, 1HBH, decent forehand, good volleys.. not the sort of player that has a massive weapon at all. Maybe I should do it again, who knows.

    Also, I saw people post the tennis elbow vids. It isn't anywhere near as smooth as Top Spin(looks a tad suspect), but it NAILS the idiosyncrasies of the players (serve routine, stroke machanics etc). Do you play that?

    SORRY, i know you guys love TS4 but the last/current generation of tennis games seemed to sour the market :-?

    TS4 wasn't that good to me, but it was the best of the crop.

    TS4 never reached TS3's sales levels...

    Let us just hope we are not waiting too long. ps5 and xbox whatever announced before a new tennis game. That would not be cool.

    I have never played Tennis Elbow. Something puts me off it. I do agree that it nails the service motion, etc.

    My PS4 doesn't get played much after beating Dying Light.

    Anyone know how to get the timing on power shots? I've mastered control shots but when i play online, the opponent always hits close to or on the baseline. Is that because of well timed power shots? Hitting drop shots is pretty tough too. Would appreciate some tips on how to get the timing right on them too.

    I WOULD play tomorrow but I absolutely DO NOT want to be woken up or for that matter wake up at a reasonable time. I'm currently souped up on enough caffeine to resurrect a large animal.

    Best thing to do is read the Top Spin 4 super guide. It hasn't turned me into a super player, but I did learn something.
