Next you have the play option were you can play a quick match single and double, choose the court you wish to play on against the pro tour tennis player male or female.

World Tour: in the World Tour you have you're house, where you rest, change gear and have you're calendar, so you can keep track on upcoming matches, when there are time to practice or do mission in the academy. Its also here where you have a couple of mini games in the start, but don't worry as you play trough the mini games and reach lv 5, you will unlock another mini game. Its also in the World Tour you have the tennis store, where you can buy all kinda a stuff. The online ranked matches is played from the World Tour menu witch makes them random matches you play.

Tennis store info: In the tennis store you have from top to bottom;

This is here all the stuff you win in the tournaments you play and mini games ends up for you to buy.

Winning a tournament will result in you getting the court pass so you can buy them.

What is Baseline - normal and net play: A baseline playstyle is where you stand at the back line on the court and hit the balls from there. A normal playstyle is when you are standing at the middle line on the court and plays there. the last one is when you're standing right at the net and hit vollies.

Tips & Hints:[/CENTER]

It's a very good idea to make sure you play ALOT of practice matches as you get all the 3 bars filled a bit, where on mini games and academy you only get one of the bars filled up as the playstyle you are training

Make sure you spend you're money on water instead of taking a 1 at home or 2 weeks on holiday and missing a tournament or a good practice. because you can get all you're playstyles in + so they are better than just a normal playstyle. SO remember lots of practice to get those bars filled up and getting the All round + playstyle unlocked.

Water costs 300 - 1 week at home is free and 2 weeks holiday costs 1000. but when you're drinking water, no weeks past by... so keep you're stamina up all time to max out you're performance at all time.

When playing matches its a good idea to have a solid defend and a good eye to when you're suppose to make you're attack... not always going for the volley point... but keep you're opponent running after those winners and dropshots, so you get the chance to score the point easier... a good defensive eye on where the balls are coming next give a good chance to get those winners in the corners to score the point.

Love games are when you win a game 40 0. this is easier in the earlier stages on the World Tour. (on amateur when around rank 100). But on the other hand this is a trophy that are bound to came a some point.

Breaking the Speed Limit.
Hit a serve over 200kph/124.28mph

When you serve you'll have a meter where it will start to fill up when you press the first time, then press again for it to stop and serve the ball, make sure the meter is filled all the way up, when done right, there will stand max serve above the meter. its best to play as a big serve, as it only makes it easier to get a 200 kph serve, or simple use Roger Federer until you get it.

Big Hitter.

A max serve is when you the serve meter gets filled all the way, this takes some practice to do right and it will take a while. 250 max seems like a lot and it is a lot. but it will come over some time when playing the game.

Pushing it to the Max!

This trophy can be kinda stupid to get, if you're having trouble make the max serves. Because they have to be in a row.

An easy way to force a mistake is is by making winner or dropballs shots.

Super, Smashing, Great!
Win 200 smash points

Smash is when you hit the ball in high air. Score points this way 200 times. Try the drop ball so you have time for the rush to the net. then try to make corner balls on the volleys so the other player will be forced to make airballs, this is here you have the chance to smash the ball. but remember to be in the right position before you push the so you don't miss those airball and loses the point.

Aces High.

You can control your serve on the left stick. try hitting the serve into the corner with a max power and there should be a 50 - 50 chance this is a ace. The ace is one of the hardest to do in virtua tennis. So keep practice and do those max serve to do this the right way... or you could do this with a friend or two controller, then it is not that hard, but still takes some time...

Over the top.

Lob the ball over the opponent. Can be hard to get as you give you're opponent a chance to smash the ball.

Social Animal.

On the other hand this one can be boosted with a friend.

Block and Roll.
Clear a 15 block combo in Block Buster

When blocks stick together you will get a combo. Hit only single blocks until 15 of one color stick together and hit it.

Tips: Its a good idea to hit the lobs and drop balls so you easier can combine one color, and if you hit a bomb thats linked with a color it will boost the combo, although the bomb will not do the job on its own. When you have 2 rows with one color and a bomb, that will get the job done.

Dr. Doolittle.
Feed all types of animals in Zoo Feeder

There are 8 animals to feed. Hit the type of food to the animal with the picture above their head. All animals should come by level 5. some of the animals eats more then one kind of food, a good thing.

The animals are: Giraffe - Lion - Rhino - Ape - Panda - Zebra - Penguin - elephant

Tips: You just need to feed them one piece of food each but that wont make them go to sleep. The slice shot is your best friend in this mini game as you have more control on the angle with slice shot. Also wait to clear this on until you have a very good racket, that only makes it easier to feed all the animals...

Sink 3 galleons in a single game of Pirate Wars

This can only be done in play mode. The galleons come after around 4000 - 5000 points they have yellow sail as the only ones that have. Also when playing this mini game in play mode you have 5 lives instead of time. So avoid the cannon balls and return the tennis balls to sink the ships.

Tips: The ships can shot cannon balls right after the tennis ball and that will be your death, so the best way to get this trophy is by making running shots, these are done when you push a button while running as late as you can and your player will shot be ball while running, and again your slice shots are one of the best shots here to. it doesn't matter if you got power shots, the ships will still take the same damage. so keep moving and dodging those cannon balls, and when you have sinked the third gallon the trophy will appear.

Cherry Picker.
Collect 10 cherries in a single game of Avalanche

This can only be done in play mode. You have to collect as much fruit as possible until the cherries come to hold up your life / stamina bar up to even collect enough cherries to get this trophy. There will come a couple of cherries before the first fruit mania and when around second fruit mania you can have 6 or 7 cherries and then they will come quick after that.

Tips: Collecting as much fruit as possible will result in you playing this mini game longer. the higher value the fruit have the more stamina you will get. so fruit as bananas and melons will give more stamina than apples. Remember this as this can and will be you're life saver.

Perfect Frame.
Clear the table of balls in order without missing in Pot Shot

This trophy you have to get a perfect start on the mini game. That said is because you have to pot a ball on every shot. There is a arrow pointing the way the ball is going before serving, so this makes it easier. Take it easy with the power you chose to hit the balls with, because its easier to pot with low powered serves, than high power serves.

Ham and Eggs.
Turkey on level 6 or above of Pin Crusher

Let me say this trophy will drive you insane, because you can hit all the pins, but if one pin is being hold up by another even when its hit, it doesn't count as a strike.

This have to be done in tour mode. and the mini game will be unlocked after clearing the court curling's level 4. Now get to level 6 and get 3 strikes in a row. This is hard to get because some of the pins that ain't pushed all the way down will not count. But with max serve and a good angle it should be a strike.

Tips: The trick to get this one is having a racket with high angle and power, as you have to hit the pins on the side near you of the front pin with a max serve. so power - angle and control here is you're best friend.
