She was amazed that we had Mcdonalds, and that we had department stores and shops like Gap, and The Simpsons on TV.

Another guy (also from the US) said i sounded like Ron Weasley from Harry Potter :haha:

SM
Jan 2nd, 2005, 09:16 AM
hey switz

from other online games ive played ithink it goes like this...there is a lobby of some sort where u can choose who/where to play. IN this lobby u can talk to people before and after matches but dont have to. u can simply initiate a game w/out all thos hassles.

and its much better than ur mates. ur mates (assuming they arent tennis freaks) wont know as much about strategies, and with thousands of people to challenge u will ALWAYS find someone better than urself which is good...a never ending challenge ;):)

SM - If your talking about Kbps? Then you should be fine. Im on 1MB and can use the net and LIVE with no probs(at the same time). But I dont know. Try ringing your internet provider. A quick call should get it sorted.

Guys I have amazing news regarding Topspin!!! :D

Anyways, I created Venus Williams and im 3* serve, 5* BH & FH and 1* volley. My Skills are Power, Return Risk Shot and Risk Shot (I'm sooo thick because these are like the worst skills :sad: )

Anyways, I won all pro-am tournaments not dropping a game :bounce: Won all Pro tournaments only dropping 3 games (and that was in a final in Chennai).

I then decided to got to the Oz Open. I beat Harkleroad 3-0 4-3(5) and then I faced Hingis and I got absolutely slaughtered 3-0 3-1 :sad: Anyways, I then decided to play a Major Pro. I played the Romania Indoor and beat Sergeyvna and then lost to Amanda Coetzer :tape: 4-2 3-1 . After that I got pissed off because I was wondering why I only have 3 skills instead of 4 (why is that?) and at the fact I can't beat th computer!!!

I then decided to play Moscow, and I played brilliantly, winning the QF and SF 3-0 3-0 (beating Sergeyvna and Shaughnessy). However, in the final I played Elena Dementieva and I lost the first set 3-1 (I was lucky to even get a game). However, I came back and won the next two sets to win my first ever Major Pro Title in Moscow 1-3 4-3(5) 4-3(9) (that final set I lead 4-0 in the tiebreak :o ) :bounce: :hug: This made me NUMBER 2 in the world!!!! :bounce: (behind Hingis :fiery: )

I dunno if I can play again, coz I'm scared that I will lose again and I don't want my winning percentage to go down (I have only lost two matches).

Anyways, I just though I would share this with you because my brother don't give a shit and my friends don't know anything about computers.

Also, can you tell me why I only have 3 skills instead of 4???

Honey B Fly I am just like you except for winning a major pro. I made it to the finals of Us Open and the grass tournament in South America but cant beat any computers. My stats are Serve-* Forehand-***** Backhand-***** Volley-***. I just can't and get frustrated.

It's annoying isn't it. I'm too afraid to go into anymore big tournaments :lol: I'm just gonna ride on this Moscow victory until Daniela Hantuchova moves ahead of me and I fall to number 3. I just don't want my win/loss ratio to get worse. Also, when I lose I end up swearing at the TV and chucking my controller across the room :o

tips??

I'll assume you are making a female char. I think it depends if you are elite, or just learning.

If you want to learn the game,

Defensive 3-4-4-3 (basic all-around player) Precision (helps w/control), Speed (gets you to the ball faster and allows you to "lock on" quicker, Risk Shot (slows the meter and causes a longer meter pause at lock on point), Topspin (increases control, angle, etc.)

If you are or have designs on being elite,

Defensive 4-5-5-0 (at the top of the heap, it is almost all baseline bash-o-rama. A good serve is also required, or the top players will pick on it. Volleys are almost useless, because of all the power, angle, and risk shot madness. Return of Serve (makes a huge difference in returning), Speed or Power (somewhat of a toss-up, most seem to stick with speed tho'), Risk Shot (only because the rest suck so much. Drop shot might be a good choice, but excess dropping pisses people off. Ace helps very, very, very, little. I once picked it and it SLOWED my serve down. Passing shot is almost worthless for a female, because almost noone charges the net, and passing shot only works with flat.) Topspin (The rest are basically worthless.)

Do not ever pick- Return risk shot (worthless. that is all about timing) Volley (basically worthless on the women's side, and no doubles) Ace and Passing Shot, Smash (pointless), Aggressive lob (tall players can easily pick it off)

Speaking of height, my personal opinion is that taller has better serve angles, but is ganglier and more apt to be wrongfooted. Shorter has better controlled movement, but lacks serve angles. It's up to you.

Weight and handedness don't make much difference, but definitely do two-handed. For some reason, on the women's side, all things equal, a two-handed backhand is much better than a one-handed backhand.

Good Luck. :D

^^^^ What? Jahrim told me i should have a return risk shot and passing shot as a skill :shrug: And 2 stars on volley (im defensive)

By no means am I spreading the gospel. Make the choices you think are the correct ones. Passing shot is fine, but it only works when you use the flat button. Also, within the top ten, to my knowledge, only one volleys with regularity. Returning risk shots is about timing the hit right, and IMHO return of serve is so much more crucial. (the large majority of the top ten have it) But there are many ways to skin a cat. Good luck! :wavey:

!<blocparty>!
Jan 6th, 2005, 03:04 PM
ooh, i have return of serve :o oops, sorry jahrim :p

I dont hit flat passing shots though, they'd get killed wudnt they? :lol:

kabuki
Jan 6th, 2005, 03:09 PM
ooh, i have return of serve :o oops, sorry jahrim :p

I dont hit flat passing shots though, they'd get killed wudnt they? :lol:

With passing shot, flat shots hit while the other player is at the net dip wildly. But again, no one volleys that much.

Yeah thats true, i just need practice my anticipation and risk shots now. I can beat about the 1,500 ranked player (I think) But when it gets higher, I tank. lol

I'm assuming you mean in exhibition. I'm not sure there are 1500 official players.

1500 in exhibition is very good. Particularly because the exo ranking is for mens and womens together (one ranking). There are so many more mens players, so it is easier for them to accumulate points. For example, when I was top 5 official, I was still only top 150 exo. My guess is a top 1500 exo player might be top 50 womens official. Again, very good. :D
