The male players in it are Rafter, Henman, Pioline, Kafelnikov, Haas, Enqvist, Norman and Moya.

The female players are Venus, Serena, Lindsay,Monica, Mary, Arantxa, Dokic and Stevenson.

I got my copy today, and will play it when I get back home today. All I have to say is Venus, Serena and Monica better be grunting. A nice "Shhh" sound when Dokic strikes the ball wouldn't hurt either. <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

P.S. It is supposed to have a create a player option as well.

Buy this game people, it totally rocks, I'll give a full review on it sometime tomorrow. They have computerized the appearances, groundstrokes and service motions of all the featured players in this game ... Buy it now! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Dont order it unless you cant find it at your local game store.<br />We ordered ours because there was so many request for it, we were scared it would be on back order. WRONG!<br />It came out today and people have it, and we are still waiting.<br />Bad decision!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<br />I am most curious, as was selesworld, as to if Monica has 2 hands on the forehand as well as the backhand. Anybody know yet?<br />I might just have to go break down and buy it down the street, I'm impatient.

OMG, I got mine today. It got to the store at 11:00 am in New York City and I got it at 11:01 LOL.

It is soooo much better than Virtual Tennis. Venus and Serena's motions are exactly the way it is in real life. Seles is tough. You can creat your own player who starts out playing Challengers and try to move up the rankings. IT ROCKS. SOOOOO REAL. Even Stevenson got game.

I was just going to start a thread about his game, it is truly fierce. To the person that asked, Seles does have a 2handed 4hand, but if you press her wide she will take the right hand off just like the real Monica. Like Big Lindsay said, the service motions and faces are dead on. Serena and Venus work in this game, they have power and speed.

Some of th heads that I peeped could be made into Julie_Conchita_Gaby_Kournikova..... for the men Guga_Rios_Andre_Pete and like I said, just about anybody.

Now I need some help, I created a male and female player for the world tour, but I can't play any tournaments, I completed all of the training, but you need to have a certain ranking to play a tournament. The first one that pops up is a doubles tournament, but the catch is you have to buy a partner, but you can't because you don't have any money yet since you never played a tournament and won money. I know I'm doin somthin wrong. <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

Serena_TheBody_Williams, I have not played the World Tour mode yet.

BeCoolSerenaLover, I hope these answers help you.

Q1-THE GAME REALLY HAS THE OPTION "CREATE A PLAYER"?<br />A1-Yes, when you play the World Tour, you have to create one male and female player. I am not yet aware if you can create more than one.

Q2-HOW GOOD IT IS?<br />A2-The game is very addictive, I just can't stop playing it. The computer has four different levels that your computer opponent plays at, easy, normal, hard & very hard. Some of the pro's that you play against run down more shots than others, especially Arantxa!

Q3-THE TENNIS ON GAME IS REALISTIC??? THE FIRST ONE WASN'T SO REAL...... ALL BALLS U COULD GET!<br />A3-I never played th first one, but having each players hitting/serving characteristics adds realness to the game, but I must admit that Pierce does not hit as hard as she should. <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

Q4-WITH THE PLAYER CREATED, YOU CAN PLAY IN THE WORLD CIRCUIT?<br />A4-Yes, but you cannot play the World Tour with the pro's. <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

Q5-THEY HAVE HOW MANYS SHOTS? LOB, A NORMAL SHOT AND IS TRUE THAT EXIST A SLICE?<br />A5-The shots are lob, topspin (which is really flat), slice and dropshot, which you execute by hitting the slice button, then holding back on it.

Q6-AND THE YOUR NOTE FOR THIS GAME?????<br />A6- I assume you mean my vote for this game? I give it 4 outta 5 stars, reason being is the volleying could be better, but the swing volley is fantastic ... maybe this will change as I improve?. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I have not been back here (wtaworld), for almost a week now. I am so addicted to this game. Here are my pros and cons, and yes, I canceled my order and bought it down the street. I think all of the women players look so real and life like. It's almost as if it is an actual match going on, which is really cool. My favorite player Monica hits hard and does all of the same movements just as the real Monica. But, they make her go to the one-handed forehand way too often and EVERYONE'S volleys suck. Everything slows down a little when a player comes to the net. It's a real fight to make passing shots sometimes and the ball starts moving slow, really weird (not that Monica comes to the net often, but when another player does it's the same effect, it slows everything down). I have yet to beat it, so that's challenging. I have reached the final round but can't win yet. It's awesome to be able to play mixed doubles which most games you can't.<br />Once again, like the virtua tennis game, you can't play a whole match. The most you can play is one set going to a tie-breaker.<br />One other thing, the game seems to show more replays when the comp wins points, then when you hit some awesome shots.<br />I still love the game, there will always be one or two things that you don't like about a game. I am so glad they finally came out with such a realistic tennis game, that has women pro players!

I give it an A <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />

Got my copy yesterday!

It is absolutely amazing! MUCH better than Virtua Tennis 1.

The players are SOOOOO realistic, even a little shhh sound from Jelena!

The only problem with it is the volleying, which should be much better and allow you to win more free pts but the swinging volley is great!

Now, is it just me or do we FINALLY have a tennis game where the Hard Mode is ACTUALLY Hard?

It's soooo difficult, can anyone give me any tips on how to win in Hard Mode?

Big Lindsay etc?

I just beat the world tour mode today.... both players ranked #1... the final mixed doubles match was difficult.

I haven't gotten my male player up to full stats yet... getting his volley power up is proving annoying.

but anyway. it was fun <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> $8 mil in prize money <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
