To all those people in America that want the BEST (and most realistic) tennis game, I thoroughly recommend this one. I have Sega Sports Tennis (aka Virtua Tennis 2 in Europe & Australia) and it is very good, esp for inexperienced gamers. But this version of WTA Tennis is much more realistic in terms of gameplay and the world tour. And you have so many more players to choose from.
I just played an exhibition doubles Hingis (me) & Arantxa v Venus & Lindsay on Hard mode and we just got walloped 6-2, 6-0. But I loved it! We had one double fault, 6 unforced errors and no aces. Lindsay & Venus had 3 aces and 1 double fault with 5 errors. There were many great rallies, but also many quick points. This game is very realistic. Whereas I find in Sega Tennis everyone plays the same and there isn't as much variety with the gameplay. Don't get me wrong, I like it a lot, but I love this version of WTA Tennis. But you have to remember the graphics are nowhere near as good, but that isn't the point. The gameplay and the world tour excellent!!! The best tennis game out there.
