0) what difficulty level are you playing with ?
1) great accelerations lead to forced errors, at least sometimes, but maybe only very rarely against Incredible CPU
2) Turn on the Strike Speed in "In Game menu -> Options" if you want to see the actual ball speed ; 40% & 100% lead to important speed changes, except if the 40% belongs to a counter style player, in that case, the most important skill is Counter to get fast ball
3) often deep shot = last instant strike ; this kind of strike can end short or long or out, it's random ; you'll notice a lot more the long ones because they annoy you the most ; you can hit these shots as well, same rules apply than for the CPU
I'm not expecting them to really "choke" but it is frustrating to see the counter all the time. I can play a game against a player and they make ridiculous errors up until 40-0. Suddenly, all they hit are winners or they never make any more mistakes until they win the whole game! The exact opposite happens to my player especially on serve. Suddenly, on the big points, my player can't find a first serve to save her life LOL!!! So if there is something that makes them play the big points better (or at least it feels like there is) then the counter should exist too. I mean I expect Steffi Graf to hit a big serve or forehand on a big point but not Anna Smashnova lol (Yes I'm picking on her because she hits the biggest shots lol).
My frustration comes from the CPU level. There are players where I look at the stats and think I have no chance and I will beat them easily. Yet when I play more mid ranked players I struggle mightly or lose lol. I'm 24-5 against Serena, Venus, Lindsay, and Monica combined and they are four of the greatest players of all time! Conversely, I'm 5-12 against Zvonareva, Smashnova, Schnyder, Suarez, and Hantuchova all of whom have never won a slam! Zvonareva doesn't even have a backhand right now and I try to expose the weakness but even when she is on the run, it always somehow turns into her advantage. Despite Venus, Serena, and Lindsay being better power players, Smashnova is the one that seems like power supreme. Idk maybe that's where I'm messing up. I accept that it's really tough to beat Justine, Kim, Jennifer, Amelie, etc. But Smashnova? (LOL!) Are the lower ranked players randomly assigned point values? I mean right now Serena's power is about 96% and Venus is about 94% but Smashnova is 100 LOL!
