This game could be so much better! Players almost never hit a ball out and never hit one into the net. My player often slices the ball when I'm clearly swiping for a topspin shot BUT the biggest bugbear is the inability to perform a lob shot. Even though the function is there to perform one, whenever in try it the game performs a topspin or slice no matter how cleanly I make the swipe motion. It makes it much harder to beat the best players when they come to the net. Also you can't accurately hit the ball to the corners because the swipe controls are very vague. This game needs much more precise controls. Very frustrating!


Works great on ipad mini.
Not sure why the game has any haters. It's pretty easy so far, winning every tourney. But it's still challenging. Maybe by the time I break the top 20 it will start getting tougher. Also, for anyone complaining about the swipe controls...there's a settings menu...turn on the game pad mode


I have been wanting iPhone 5 screen support for this app for ages. Today it arrived. Sadly, instead of properly optimising the graphics for the larger screen like EVERY other developer does, SEGA have decided to just stretch them. Circles are now ovals, the menus and players look stretched. Why should I have to adjust to this mess when I paid too much for the app in the first place? I wish I'd never updated it. For that reason, I have to give it 1 star. This is one of my fave games on the App Store but this update is sloppy and insulting.
