Smile Video Game Opinion Please

Does anyone own or know much about the WTA Tour Tennis game for PS2? I just ordered one on eBay for $20 and I'm wondering if it's worth my money. I couldn't find any screenshots online. I just know this is the one with Dokic on the cover. Hope Hingis is in the game.
I just wanted to know how all of you that have it, would rate it and basically what it's like. I'm Christmas shopping for myself early this year.
Also does anyone have the Smashcourt Tennis for PS2 that came out this year, and is it much better?

Thanx in advance!

I agree. The ball went about two miles per hour, and you couldn't improve your player.

smash court stinks, hard hitter stinks...wta has depth but is very unpolished...vt2 has alot of depth too but is the most polished and the best to play IMO .

it really depends on the person tho, so i sugest try before u buy..rent them all

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

My opinions...

Smash Court Tennis is great for playing doubles with friends but that's it.

WTA Tennis (the USA version) looks good but is very slow paced. I am actually enjoying it though after you get used to the pace and difficult gameplay.

WTA Tennis (PAL version) has a great World Tour but doesn't look half as good as some of the other games.

Fila Sports Tennis (xbox) is OK
Slam Tennis (PS2 or xbox) is OK - doubles is a lot of fun with friends though!

Sega Sports Tennis is supposed to be very good but it's not out in PAL format yet. I have the Dreamcast version and it looks good but I found it too easy to hit winners so the rallies were pretty short.
