Good not Great
The Good: This is the best tennis game app you're going to find. The graphics are great and they spent time with the scenery, court surface, player types, etc..
The Bad: As other reviewers mention the computer simply won't let you win some games against top competition no matter how well you play. What will generally happen is that you will get up 3 games to Love against your opponent and at that point your opponent will become next to unbeatable. To further complicate the situation, it becomes very difficult during these times, regardless of concentration and positioning, to control your shot selection. Example: you have an easy chance to send a winner down the line but instead of the typical top spin it will suddenly turn into a lob.
It's an all around good game and I'd recommend it just be ready to be annoyed at the computer not allowing you to win certain matches regardless if how well you play.
Great potential! However...
This game has one of the best potentials to be the greatest tennis game on iOS (and still my fav on iOS so I bought it). BUT It just needs two things from me, 1. Optimize it for the iPhone 5, and 2. The game lags a lot when someone texts me or I get an email (I have the banner set), this ruins the experience. I shouldn't have to set my phone on Airplane mode every time I play! And I'm on an iPhone 5! I can't imagine how bad the lag would be for anything lower!
Good realistic graphs, crappy controls
The developer did not put much effort in making the top ranks hard to beat, he just messed up the controls so you can't hit the ball as you normally do, will shots, your player runs to oppositte directions (specially forward).... Give it a try and you'll wanna smash your device against the wall. Besides that, this would be perfect!
