    A great tennis game for all tennis lovers


    Created by the author of Tennis Elbow 2006 & Tennis Elbow Manager, Tennis Elbow 2009 is a tennis simulation with an easy and intuitive learning curve, but with exceptional gameplay depth.

    This tennis game gives you the control of a professional tennis player with efficient technique, focusing on what is really possible to simulate in a tennis game. Therefore you’ll have to show all your tactical skills, use an iron mind and quick reflexes, as well as a sharp eye to guess the ball trajectories, all of this to choose your next strike wisely !

    In Tennis Elbow, you have to position yourself correctly to efficiently strike the ball. The earlier you prepare your shot, the more accurate it will be. The power depends on the kind of shot you choose, as well as your position from the ball and where you are on the court.

    The ball’s physics is faithfully reproduced, with serves faster than 200 km/h that will wind you, as well as the topspin and slice effects, without forgetting the topspin passing shot with a side effect that a well-know player with a big left arm likes to do so much when his opponents are at the net..!

    Played one set... Lost :(

    But this is a good game, especially for those of us who like sports games. Not only does this look good, the gameplay is good too.

    This is a lovely game. I liked the gameplay, its really nice. I have only played the demo version and really loved the game.

    I have a couple of comments on the game:
    1. When the score turns 40-15, the announcer still sounds like 30-15.
    2. In doubles, the partner of the player moves to the opposite side of the court based on the player movement. So even if the computer controlled partner is ready to take a shot and I move my player to the same side as the computer controlled partner, the latter will move to the opposite side and not complete the shot.
