    Tennis Elbow 2009 is fun.

    I didn't tell you guys, but finding a torrent of the full version is nice too.

    That one is pretty cool as well, I find the controls a little bit to hard for me to handle, at least the demo is 14 days and not 5 minutes lol.

    I would say "Virtua Tennis 3" (or 2009) for some "arcady" tennis, "Top Spin 2" for a more realistic simulation (where you can actually hit the ball long or wide).

    "Top Spin 3" is by far the most realistic, but extremely difficult to control (you need to hit the button to start the backswing, and hit it one more time to initiate the forward swing).

    I am actually thinking of designing a new one, just for fun. It seems no tennis games have the concept of a split-step, 4 different serve types, touch vs pace volleys, different amounts of topspin on groundstrokes, and so on. I'd love to play a game that is both realistic and simple to control. We could start a thread on what such a game could be like, actually - I am not sure if anyone else is interested, though.

    I got the hang of top spin 3 and it is really the best bet, you only have to hit the button once to hit it. You hit the button early to start the backswing and let it go to hit it.

    I have to play on the hardest difficulty for it to be fun.
