I remember we had a thread about Elena not being on the list of players featuring in Topspin 2.

But there is a Top Spin 2 article and pics posted in GM, and Elena is in one of the pics. Anyone have a clue what's going on?

Could she be a secret/hidden character? :p

Pfft, Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament 2 for PS2 rules all the way!
Elena was the first player I created. Unfortunately, back then, I had no idea what the various skills stood for. :lol:

E.g.: 'meet' Had no idea what that was about. Now I know it enables you to hit sharp angles. :)

My ignorance resulted in the stats not being completely adequate. Her groundstrokes are not really that big, she hits 180km/h serves ( :haha: ), barely double faults ( :haha: :haha: :haha: ), but she does have great stats for volley and slice and dash.
But what do I care! It's Lena! :D

Cool.... so no one has any explaination as to why she is in the picture but not on the player list?

Anyway, as if Smash court is any good. It doesn't have Elena.

Maybe she was a late add or they just forgot to name her. Game development goes through sooooooo many changes before the end product comes out.

Well, you can always try to track down an old copy of WTA Tennis like I have.

Sure, it's nearly unplayable and the graphics, while decent are badly dated.

BUT . . .

it has Lena.

In fact, it has Lena with baaaaaaaaannnnnngggggs . . .:drool: :drool: :hearts:

Compared to what you see in other games you're right, in some sports games you can actually see the players sweat! They look REALLY real. Here it just looks like video game Lena.

She's in!!!!

www.topspin2.com/home.html

Go to the game features and it has:

Best of the Best
Features 24 of the world's top ranked professional tennis stars like Maria Sharapova, Andy Roddick, Roger Federer, Venus Williams, Lindsay Davenport, Lleyton Hewitt, Carlos Moya, Tommy Haas, James Blake, Elena Dementieva, Amelie Mauresmo and more!

Unfortunately though, the pictures on the site look crap... graphics aren't as hot as you'd like and they have pictures of Amelie and James Blake with two handed backhands :tape:
