manutoo wrote:I chose 1990 as 1st year for 2 reasons :
- in 1989, there were a lot less players on the tour (probably coz of the reason outlined by torto14, which I actually didn't know )
- this is for me the start of modern tennis with the raise of the big hitters (Courrier & Agassi in 1st line), and the old school players behind already falling away (mainly: Lendl), thus the gameplay can match these times more or less correctly (on women side it's a bit less true, though)
