Leaving the tournament [Retiring from the Tour]

I used to play with fair mode
CAN'T stand the ball-bashing and monster serve that is unreturnable even with average auto-positioning in realistic mode, crazy :fear:

You can only ball-bashing on clay...that's crazy...
In real tennis many play long rally on clay and master serve has little use there

Everyone becomes offensive baseliner.
You say it is good for top players to play it fast?
Well in real tennis the one hitting as hard as possible for every single shot doesnt win much actually, at least on clay and hard

My average rally length is more than 12 on clay, 10 at hard. Maybe just a subjective perception by you. Keep practising. :)

Kind regards,

But yet, probably longer than real life tennis. (Remember he said average)
I'm gonna guess it's around 8-9 but will probably check hard facts.

Average rally length is 5.6 for WTA, 7.3 for ATP at clay. There's a nice paper about it by Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science (Universiteit Leiden) which can be downloaded here.
