I won all the games, I played the computer on expert haha

Maybe they snagged a game in the second set. Still, some good rallies :)
Good, good. I would have mocked your skills if you had lost more than 2 games on expert. :p Like I've said before, they really did a number on Roger Federer. He doesn't even have the correct wristband. I think he is wearing 2, although my recent top spin 4 hate might just be messing with my mind.

I could never really use Nadal on this. Find his serving awkward as fook and I just can't get to grips with his style. Stan would have been my favorite player to use. Just a shame that his ratings are a little low.

Hahaha. I can beat expert 6-0 6-0 6-0 in any situation offline, I'm a decent player. I've played online 3 or 4 times, it was incredibly "sweaty" if you know the gaming term. Bad quality matches, cheesing, left right and center. I like playing the computer, the rallies are good enough to make it fun. I rarely use my 360 anymore, only for Topspin, I use my PS4 more often, Fifa etc.

Reading some of your earlier posts, I want to get tennis elbow now. But although it gets the idiosyncrasies of the player perfectly, it still looks like an arcade game, or like a mobile phone game. How does it play?

It's annoying playing against Stan. I always do a good match up, Roger vs Stan or Rafa or someone else, but sadly, the computer is very passive with Stan's backhand. He doesn't rip anything. So it's not the "real" Stan.

It is all about the playing. I think that is why I never gave Tennis Elbow a go, because of how it looked. Once I started playing it, even though I couldn't get to grips with the controls at the start, because I kept playing it like I was playing Top Spin. Once I got to grips with that, it was a no contest. Tennis Elbow is the far superior game.

Once you start playing, you will realize which game is the true arcade game.

About playing the computer. I needed to play top spin online in the sweaty gutter because the computer is a terrible opponent. Like you said, it doesn't feel like you're playing the real player.. It is really fun playing against the computer on TE. New players entering the tour on career mode, etc. They play differently and Stan will not hold back from ripping me apart with his backhand. Yikes. :eek: Just feels like a tennis lover made this game.

Tennis elbow is very addictive especially because of all the mods from all tennis fans. I really hope managames launch their new TEM or new TE soon.

Tonnes of people still play! Mostly really good people though, so be ready ;)
I play 2k mode. Where you can only use in game players. I've become decent at it and I beat most players. I hardly ever use my created player online.

They said Pat Rafter was done after three sets. Stamina gone after too many wild net attacks. Yet, his will to fight never left him, he chose to find another way. Every man, woman or child can fight if the cause is worth fighting for. And that is why Pat Rafter stands tall as the current Top Spin champion.

Speaking of Top Spin 4, it’s pretty darn amazing and sad that a 7 year old game is still king.
