Starting career on Pro?

Postby Andy » 24 Jul 2009, 17:20

Has anyone done this with any success in the first few tournaments? I played Tennis Elbow 2006 a lot and loved it and managed to get to number 1 on Pro but I have just started a new career on Tennis Elbow 2009 on Pro and I have played 5 matches so far and lost 6-0 6-0 in every match, I am playing Futures qualifying aswell :shock:

It seems I have put myself in the deep end too early by starting on Pro but Pro isn't even the highest level of difficulty so if I can't even win a game on Pro then how hard is this game??

It all depends on your stats. I was able to start on Incredible and have been pretty successful: http://www.managames.com/Forum/topic15-2249.php

I have recently started a career on Pro sublevel 7 and I won 4 tournaments and loss only 1 match until now against Roger Federer in an ATP tournament (I received a Wild Card). Maybe you can try playing on Junior sublevel 10.

What is sub-level all about? Is it how fast the opponents are or something? :? I have it on level 10.

The reason I started on a hard difficulty was because I always like to set myself a big challenge and even if it takes a while to win matches then i'll stick at it but with this I cannot win a single game!

Guest, even in future, you can meet a lot of players with skill in the 40-50's. If you didn't play the game a lot already, you have no chance to be able to beat them (except if u're born with a pad in ur hands ;) ). But if you also cannot win a game against the players with skills only in the 20's, then you should really consider to lower the difficulty. The SubLevel allows you to fine tune it. Pro-5 is about mid-distance between Junior-10 & Pro-10.

i will ask my eternel question here :p

does world tour allow you to improve forever (maybe winning points to add in your profile) and then to improve in the tournaments (hamburg and indianapolis this week).

because i only play tournaments and not world tour, then i wonder if your level can change with it.

I don't think so Tati, World Tour is very different from tournaments, I can play very good on Master Sub-level 9 on World Tour and 60% in forehand and backhand, but I'm horrible in tournaments :?

Anyway, for me World Tour is the funniest thing of Tennis Elbow :D

I'm playing at junior level 8 currently. I'm at the beginning so I have FH BH at 35%, speed 50%, service 25-30 and other very low stats. I can win against poor 10-15% players, but against players as strong as me I lose making 1-2 games per set. I think mostly because I have no patience. I try to do winners but, maybe due to my actual lack of power, the CPU gets almost all of them until I throw one outside :oops:

Any advices for an unexperienced player? :D

A great match finally! Against a player with similar stats to me on a Future, I won 7-6 7-6! :) hitting 55 winners and 34 unforced errors :roll: I play as a power baseliner.
Without all these error, due to my constant searching of the lines, I could have won easily. In the second set i was leading 5-2 and then went down 5-6! This game is great, it makes me nervous like I was really near my first victory of the carreer! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Fabry, it looks like you find the advice you needed by urself : play more..! ;)
If you already can beat the Junior-8 , it means you more or less know the game well enough already, and just need to practice more to play even better..! :yes:

Yeah, I'm quite enjoying the carreer now. It's realistic, sometimes I win sometimes I lose. Yesterday I lost a crazy match 3-6 6-2 1-6 :blackeye:

The only thing I'd want is more variety, now to do points there are 2 things: drop shot and then pass'em, and accelerate on the lines, with all the risks connected :D
