The warm-up mode is good for practicing ground strokes, but I feel a few additions would improve it.

Suggested additions:
Service only - lets you practice just serving
Return only
Opponent strike type - set which strikes the CPU opponent will hit, maybe tickboxes to select one or multiple (i.e if practicing smashes, set lobs only. if practicing volleys turn off lobs).
Machine instead of player - when practicing volleys, if the opponent doesn't return it, you have to wait for them to run back and then start the rally again. Having a machine that would send the ball over in quick succession in a random (or predetermined) direction would be useful.

Also an option to have a warm up before the match would be nice, with a button to "ready up". This could act as a kind of "lag/desync test" before online games too.

A few more things I'll just throw out there:

Play in warm up mode while waiting for an opponent when hosting online.
Lobby chat from the online menu/match room.
Interactive tutorials/training - I don't mean like space invaders/bowling like VT, just a few things which can point newbies in the right direction and illustrate a lot of the main points mentioned in the documentation with examples in the game (i.e. show an identical shot struck from different parts of the danger zone). I think it may help beginners stick with the game and possibly purchase it.
A quick (optional/skippable) change of ends animation when 3d courts are enabled - would show the surroundings a bit more, when using the default camera you don't see much of the stadium.
Non-mirrored textures.

I don't know how easy any of the above would be to implement, or if they would be worthwhile and I'm not complaining about not having them, just offering some constructive advice :).

More slots for character sheet page instead of 36 available! There should be at least 100 slots or the possibility to pick any player of the game -

And what about a Tournament mode? how that isnt an option?


Another suggestion: make the game more editable... and not having to open .ini files and search which number you should put in order to make x surface their favourite ...
you should be able to edit players from inside the game and at the same time being able to play with any player of them all and see all the changes you made in the game not only in career mode. Just the way you can change a player playing style you should be able to choose their fav surface.
An other thing that could be cool is to have more than 1 outfit per player and being able to pick from inside the game which one to play with. This would be great so the modders hard work on every tshirt can still be used easily.

In the upcoming updates,can you increase the number of slots in training club to 50 or even more?And about the grunts,can you make it start earlier because in real,all players start his grunt before hitting the ball? :yes: :yes:

would be more realistic if, sometimes, CPU would hit some shot in the net. They never miss a shot like that, they just miss sometimes when they hit wide or long but it'd more realistic if sometimes they'd hit the net too.

I agree with a forced slice like a last effort shot. Like with a last long step!
And also a super risky shot for a similar situation. Its really difficult to win points like super fast :mrgreen:
A risk shot should be much more powerfull than the average ones and you should be able to take that shot from everywhere. it also should be a difficult shot that goes close to the net and rarely goes in !
Oh and this could be good for return winners since ive never been able to make any at least against cpu.

Hi Manutoo !

What about special anims for top-spin shots ? it would be great for the overhead forehands (Nadal style) that most of the players hit so often these days...think about it ;)

It would be nice if the statistics of matches could be exported to excell/word/txt-files :).

Would that be possible?
