By "little" player, I meant his best ranking is around 30. Only players reaching Top 5 are really important... :)

You have to activate the "Advanced Options" to see the number of sets when starting a new game ; else, you can change the number of sets before each match, in the Match Preview screen.

R.Gasquet, I very wonder what u mean by : "THE BOTTOM OF MY SCREEN DISAPPEARS AND WHEN I CHANGE IT BACK" ..? The bottom half of TE was all blank ? What did u do to "change it back" ?

You should have several backups of your past World Tour weeks, look in the "Load" menu.

as in the blue bar at the bottom of my screen disappearedm, and when i changed it to windowed, it said it wasnt possible, so i uninstalled the game and kept all my saved settings, then reinstalled it, and the only world tour file left was one that i had deleted weeks before

and a suggestion, i was wondering why Verdasco comes to the net so much when he is a defender at best he also does not have a one handed backhand
and about the volleying, all the computors are like walls at the net, anything over 20% volley is incredibly hard to pass and they reach things which are completely out of reach

Humm, maybe it's a problem with the profile ? If you use one, u should be sure to reselect it after have reinstalled the game.
Also, it shouldn't be needed to uninstall the game before to reinstall it...

About Verdasco, he was set as Varied, so I just updated to be a Defender...

About volley, do u use the short acceleration ? Actually, I think it's a bit too easy to pass them, and on next update, the low volleys will be slightly more effective...

Please only make the AI's volleys more effective, if that's possible. Otherwise, don't do it at all. We finally have a balance in the game where many different tactics are effective. I think if volleys are made even the slightest bit more effective that might destroy the balance because it would be too easy to win points at net.

Togtdaylttai...On what World Tour level do you compete on? From what I've experienced, if you compete against the higher levels (master/Incredible or even a Pro level AI opponent with souped-up volley skills) if you only have very weak, minimal skills and speed/stamina (5% or 10%) it's extremely difficult if not almost impossible to pass OR lob the AI at all. Trying to VOLLEY with those weak skills against the AI is a JOKE!!! I don't understand for the life of me why so many people feel that it's OK to have superb groundstroke skills in the TE game but the volleying aspect can't be also more realistic. When playing against the AI as opposed to a human opponent, the higher level AI virtually KNOWS where you are attempting to pass or volley at the same time that you attempt it. IT'S A COMPUTER! Humans more often have to guess because they can only usually rely on perceived patterns, anticipation, or reactions. It seems we can come up with any number of other suggested improvements to the game, but any SLIGHTLY more realistic improvement of the volley is STRICTLY TABOO! :?

No, I'm fine with volleying being easier in World Tour. I just don't want it to be so easy in online play.

Manu...Whose low volleys will be more effective, the AI or the human player? Hopefully the human player. I think that in World Tour, passing shot effectiveness is most dependent on how strong your forehand/backhand skills can be set in relation to the AI's volleying strengths, just like in real tennis. If the human's groundies are very weak and the AI's volleys are very strong, you don't have much of a chance, usually....Once you play against the World Tour higher levels, the AI's volleying prowess seems to take care of itself depending on his volley skill levels. :roll: If I have my groundies set to +/- 60-70% or more I at least have a CHANCE against even the Master AI level volleyer. Below 49% it's virtually hopeless, 20% it's a JOKE!!!! :lol:

I second easier volleying for play against CPU. It's not like it's all that bad, but I feel it can be a little better; like the low volleys speed of shot. Also left-right sensitivity. I feel it is too sensitive. And smashes are even worse than volleys regarding left-right sensitivity. For smash, if I hold left or right for even more than a split second, most likely my smash will go out. I feel the smash should be one of the more easier shots in the game, but the sensitivity is too much. Maybe could have it so that if the Smash level setting is above a certain percentage, there could be less sensitivity. As it is, there is little margin for error on what should be one of the more easier shots.
If it could be set like this just for against CPU, I'd be happy. :)

Ditto :wink: Don't think of it as easier, just more effective and realistic (I use that word a lot, don't I?) :wink:

Key point there. I actually find it fairly easy to volley against the CPU, even with no points in volleys (though I do get lobbed, I don't lose the points that way, instead I keep rallying from the baseline), but suit yourselves. I'm fine with changing it against the CPU, but definitely not in online play.
