CPU makes incredible returns on 220 km/h serves

Postby r9h » 23 Mar 2012, 02:09

Hi guys,

This is my first post, so I excuse if I forget to mention anything.
I'm playing Tennis Elbow for like 6 months, and I'm currently playing on elite mode + tiredness on + pro-9.
I don't know where it's just for me, but on the tour (I'm playing with Murray on a 2012 one-season mode) the CPU does some incredible returns e.g. returning a winner down the line on a 220km/h serve which hits the line on a wide serve - which in my opinion should be an ace. This happens against punchers, defenders, baseliners, ... Sometimes, when I'm pissed off with this CPU behavior, I even try some rocket serves on the 2nd serve (when the CPU player is waiting for the return over the baseline), and even then he is able to answer my serves.
Not necessary to say that when I'm returning, even a 200 km/h serve which hits the line either wide or on the 'T' generally generates an ace.

When observing the replay on slow motion, i noticed that not only the CPU reacts much faster than me (this I would already expect) but also he gets a very fast "jump" when he is about to hit the ball, which my player does not do.

Therefore, I have three questions:
1- Do everyone experience the same, i.e., is this the normal behavior for this level (pro-9)?
2- Am I also able to do this big/fast "jumps" to hit the ball and not get aced?
3- I'm thinking that if I'm unable to return a serve as well as the CPU, I'm playing in a too high level. Do you make this analysis also to set the level you guys play the game?

Thanks a lot,
R9

Hello,

I did a quick check and couldn't notice any CPU jump... :thinking:
Serves on T line are often leading to aces, and the CPU doesn't does much good returns (I tested with CPU Pro-9, Speed 100%, on BG-Cement).
Are you playing with the latest version ? Did you change activate any cheat run speed for the CPU ?

Hi manutoo,
Thanks for the fast reply. I didn't change anything (not even mods), and playing with last build. I'll try to record it today and post it with the comparison between my returns and CPU returns.
I was playing on clay lately, but I've also noticed this at ausopen (synthetic, if I remember correctly).
