SINGLES Singles can be played in the following modes: *1P vs COM--Player vs. Computer In this mode, one player plays against one computer opponent. Your choice of player and opponent. *1P vs 2P--Player vs. Player Play against a friend, both of you choosing your favorite player.

It is also possible to make multiple choices of any player, as well as intermix women and men. CIRCUIT You must choose your player from the roster of 20 pro players. Travel around the world attending all the big tournaments. If you choose a female player, you will play the women’s circuit and if you choose a male player, you will play the men's circuit. The men's circuit is more difficult to win than the women's circuit, so beginning players may want to try to win the women's championship first. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (5) GETTING STARTED Use the Control Pad to select SINGLES or DOUBLES and the B Button to decide (use the Y Button to cancel your decision). Then choose the player, court type and how many sets the match will last. For information about the circuit mode, see page 18. SELECTING YOUR PLAYER You may pick your player from the pro roster of 10 men and 10 women players. Use the player profiles on page 23 of this manual for reference. SINGLES 1P vs. COM--Select your player first and then choose your computer opponent. 1P vs. 2P--Player 1 will select their player with Controller 1, and then Player 2 may choose their player with Controller 2. DOUBLES 1P + 2P vs. COM--Player 1 will select their player, and then Player 2 may choose their player.

Then Player 2 may select their player and computer partner with Controller 2. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (6) SELECTING MATCH LENGTH You may select a 1 set, 3 Set, or a 5 set match. If you choose a 3 Set match, in order to win, you must win 2 sets. If you are playing a 5 set match, you must win 3. SELECTING THE TYPE OF COURT You must select what type of court you will play your match on. HARD COURT The surface is made of concrete. This is the easiest type of court to play on. On this surface, the ball bounces higher compared to the other two courts. LAWN COURT This surface is made of grass. On a lawn court, the ball doesn't bounce very well. CLAY COURT This surface is made of clay. After bouncing, the ball speed will slow down. It may take a little while to get used to playing on a clay court. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (7) SCORE AND SET UP SCREEN Just prior to the serve, pressing the START Button, will display the Score and Setup Screen. The line which is highlighted in yellow is the option that you will be changing. Press left or righ on the Control Pad to change the option. To select another option, use [up] or [down] on the Control Pad to move up or down through the choices. *CURRENT SCORE The current score of the server is displayed on the left. *SCORE INDICATOR The current score is displayed in the upper left corner of the screen during game play. Use this option to turn the score display OFF or ON. *MUSIC SWITCH Use this option to switch the music mode between ST (stereo) or MO (mono). *BALL COLOR You may pick the color that you like for the ball from 4 different colors. Select the color that contrasts best with the court color. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (8) SCORE AND DATA SCREEN Before service, by pressing the SELECT Button you may view the score / data screen as shown on the right. *SETS WON This is the number of sets won this match. *GAMES WON This is the number of games won this match. *POINTS WON This is the total number of points scored this match. *NET POINTS This is the number of points won at the net. *FIRST SERVE % This is the percentage of successful first serves. *SERVICE ACES This is the number of unreturned serves, or “aces”. *DOUBLE FAULTS This is the number of double faults. This screen will also be displayed after each game and at the end of the match. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (9) TENNIS RULES HOW TO WIN THE POINT You will win the point if your opponent: 1) cannot return the ball to your side of the court before it bounces twice. 2) serves two consecutive faults. 3) hits the ball outside of the lines on your side of the court. HOW TO WIN THE GAME The Tennis Scoring System ------------------------------ |No Point Won | Love (0) | |First Point Won | 15 | |Second Point Won | 30 | |Third Point Won | 40 | |Fourth Point Won | Game | ------------------------------ When the score is tied at 40, it is called Deuce. A player then must win two consecutive points to win the game. HOW TO WIN THE SET A set consists of at least six games. The player who has won a total of six games win the set. If the score becomes tied at 6-6, there will be a tie-breaker. In this situation, you will need to win by 2 points to win the game. Winning score examples are 6-4, 7-5 or 7-6 (tie breaker). ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (10) Winning The Match Whichever player wins 2 sets first (3 set match) or 3 sets first (5 set match), wins the game. IN AND OUT In the game of tennis the lines, and the area bounded by the lines are considered to be the play zone. If the ball goes outside of the line it is called "OUT". If the ball lands inside of, or on the line, it is called "IN". Singles and Doubles play each use different lines on the court. Refer to the chart below for the boundaries of the singles court and the doubles court. SINGLES COURT BOUNDARIES DOUBLES COURT BOUNDARIES ------------------------- | | | ------------------------- ------------------------- | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | - ------------- - - ------------- - | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | ------------------------- ------------------------- | | | ------------------------- CHANGING COURTS To give equal play conditions to both players, players change court following each odd game. The demo (as shown on the right) can be cancelled by pressing the Y button. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (11) SERVICE AND STROKES SERVICE The serve is a very important part of the game of tennis. Losing a game in which you have right to serve, will definitely place you at a disadvantage. By learning how to serve both powerfully and accurately you will be well on your way to victory. When serving, hit the ball to your opponent's service area on the opposite side as pictured below. ------------------------- | | | | | | | | | |You - ------------- - | |XXXXX| | | Com| |XXXXX| | | ------------------------- FAULT A mis-service is called a "FAULT". If it is the first service attempt for the point, you may try to serve again. If you fail a second time, it is a "DOUBLE FAULT", and your opponent will score the point. LET When a served ball touches the net and falls into the service area it is referred to as "LET". There is no point scored, and you will serve again. In both SINGLES and DOUBLES, the service area is the same. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (12) HOW TO SERVE 1. SET YOUR POSITION Use the Left and Right on the Control Pad to move your player across the service line. Pressing Down will bounce the ball on the ground. 2. TOSS UP THE BALL Toss up the ball with either the A or B button. 3. AIM THE SERVING DIRECTION Use the Control Pad while the ball is in the air to determine the direction that the ball will travel. 4. HIT THE BALL The B button is for fast service, the A button is for slow service. If you hit the ball at its highest point, the ball will travel farther. If you hit it low, the ball will drop closer. ADVANCED TECHNIQUE At the moment that you hit the ball, if you press L or R button, as well as the A or B button, you can add spin or slice to the service. Once you learn how to do this, it will be a strong addition to your serve. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (13) STROKES In the game of tennis, hitting the ball is referred to as a “STROKE”. There are several different kinds of strokes. Hitting with the most effective stroke is only a matter of pressing the correct button at the appropriate time. TYPES OF STROKES Each button is assigned to a different type of stroke. *If you hit the ball when near the base line... A BUTTON (SLICE) This will cause the ball to be hit slow, with a reverse spin that will bounce low and float. B BUTTON (FLAT) This will hit the ball straight with less spin than the slice. The ball will have a normal bounce and speed. X BUTTON (TOP SPIN) This hit will result in a fast spinning ball, that will go up high and drop immediately. It is the fastest return, but there is a strong possibility that if hit directly to your opponent, he may be able to smash it easily. Y BUTTON (LOB) This is a rather slow ball which travels very high above the ground and bounces high. If your opponent is close to the net, this may be good to use. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (14) *If you hit the ball when close to the net... A BUTTON (LIGHT VOLLEY) When you hit the ball immediately, this will be a light volley. B BUTTON (STRONG VOLLEY) This is a faster volley, but using this when you are far from the net will make the ball tend to hit the net. NOTE: Both strokes mentioned above, will be a drop shot if you hit the ball on the first bounce. X BUTTON (TOP SPIN) Same as when used close to the base line. Y BUTTON (LOB) Same as when used close to the base line. SMASH A, B, X, or Y BUTTON When you are hit a high returned ball, if you are directly underneath the ball, and hit the ball with no bounce, you may smash it. This may turn into a regular stroke depending on the height of the ball and your timing. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (15) AIMING YOUR SHOT The easiest way to win a point is to cause your opponent to leave an area of the court uncovered. Hitting an accurate shot to this area will leave him unable to return it. *USE THE CONTROL PAD Depending upon which direction you press at the moment you hit the ball, you can aim your shot to land in different areas. Be careful when you aim, as your shot may end up bouncing back from the net. Correct timing and positioning will enable you to hit the ball to the area you are aiming at. Note that when the court changes, control will be opposite. *SHIFT HIT TIMING You can control the direction of the ball by shifting the timing of your hit. If you want to make a cross-court shot, hit the ball quickly. If you want to hit straight to the right side, hit the ball slower. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (16) CIRCUIT MODE PLAY The objective of this mode is to place first in the world ranking. In Circuit Mode play, only male players will play against male players and only female players will play against female players. THE WORLD CIRCUIT The world circuit consists of a total of 8 tournaments. It is comprised of major tournaments (MELBOURNE, PARIS, LONDON, NEW YORK) and other minor tournaments (TOKYO, NAIROBI, BEIJING, RIO). If you attend any of the tournaments, you will receive points depending upon how well you did. After the championship tournament (NEW YORK), the annual national ranking will be determined based on the number of the points you won. Depending upon your annual ranking you will be able to see a different ending demo. Win the Grand Slam (1st place in the four big tournaments) to reveal a surprise! *The Tournament Ladder After your entry to a tournament you will be shown the tournament ladder. Each tournament is played by 16 players. You will only see the results of other games that you don’t play. *The National Ranking There are 32 players that will appear in the National Rankings in each of the Men’s and Women’s circuits. Some of the players in the National Rankings do not appear on the Player Select screen. These opponents should be easy to beat, as they are not very strong players. *Tournament Points You will get more points in the four major tournaments for finishing in the same place as in the minor tournaments. However, more of the veteran players from the pro roster attend the major tournaments, so winning is more difficult. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (17) MAJOR TOURNAMENTS 1st game..........1 set match 2nd game..........1 set match Semifinal.........3 set match Final.............5 set match MINOR TOURNAMENTS 1st game..........1 set match 2nd game..........1 set match Semifinal.........3 set match Final.............3 set match *TOURNAMENT PLAY WEAKENS YOUR PLAYER After you play in one tournament, your player gets tired and loses some physical strength. If you don’t play in the next tournament, you will recover automatically. But if you continuously keep entering all of the tournaments you will be playing in a tired condition. Your decision as to whether to enter any tournament should be based on your points and ranking. If you enter one tournament to get more points, it may be to your advantage to decline entry to the next tournament so that you may attend the next one in the freshest condition. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (18) STARTING CIRCUIT MODE PLAY 1 SELECT YOUR PLAYER First, from the title screen, select "CIRCUIT" then "NEW" at the mode select screen. The Player Select screen will then appear. Use the Control Pad to select your player and then press A or B button to decide. 2 REGISTER YOUR ENTRY TO THE TOURNAMENT The location of the first tournament and its court type will appear. You must then decide if you wish to enter this tournament. If you do, simply press the A or B Button. If you do not want to play in this tournament, select "NO" with the Control Pad 3 TOURNAMENT LADDER Your player's name will be highlighted in red on the screen. You will not see the games of other players, only the results. To see the result, press the A or B Button, (If you have chosen not to attend the tournament you must still watch the results). When your player's name begins flashing your match is next! ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (19) CONTINUE After each tournament is over, the password will appear on the screen (even if you chose not to enter that tournament). Carefully copy your password so that you may use if to continue from this point at a later time. *ENTERING YOUR PASSWORD Use the Control Pad to move the little player to the letter of your choice (it will be highlighted in red), then press A or B Botton to enter. After you have completed your entry, go to END and press the A or B Button once more. If you have made an error in your entry, when you select “END”, you will be alerted by the “MISS!” notification. Carefully check and correct any mis-entries and select “END” once more. INFORMATION SCREENS *SCORE AND DATA SCREEN After each match the Score and Data screen will be displayed. After the Melbourne Open, ranking (RA) and points (PTS) are added to this display. *RANKING SCREEN After the tournament, the screen shown at right [see it there?] will appear. On this screen, you will see-- (1) How many points you won in the tournament (2) National Ranking (use the Control Pad to scroll with up and down) (3) Your overall score for the tournament. (1ST = 1st match, 2ND = 2nd match, SF = Semi-Final, F = Final) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (20) ABILITY OF THE PLAYERS Each player has his or her own abilities determining the speed of the shot, footwork, intelligence (computer controlled), and etc. (there are 20 different ability elements). SHOT SPEED Speed is required for a powerful service and strong return of a serve. If you are faster than your opponent you will have an advantage. But, if you are a fast player, it is more difficult to control your stroke. Pick the player that is easiest for you to control. Ball speed will vary dependent upon what kind of shot it is. *SERVICE The ability to skillfully serve is a very important requirement to winning. If your service is very fast and accurate, you have a definite advantage. *STROKE There will be a difference in the ball speed whether the ball is hit forehand or backhand, even for the same player. Learn which stroke you are good at. *LOB If your lob is very quick, it is beneficial when you play against a net-player (a player who is good at playing close to the net). ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (21) *VOLLEY For a player to be good at net play, volley speed is very important. FOOTWORK Footwork is how fast and how well you move. In some instances, this aspect is a more important element than ball speed. *FRONT AND BACK FOOTWORK A player who is good at net play must have good front and back footwork. *RIGHT AND LEFT FOOTWORK The quick switching in movement from right to left is required for the players who depend on good stroke plays. *JUMPING This is the ability of the player to reach a seemingly unreachable ball by jumping. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (22) ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE This is one of the important elements when the computer controls a player. This element gives each player a different strong point. Some players can almost always “ace” an opponent. Some are good at “service” and “volley”. Some depend on a “passing shot” followed by a regular stroke. Of course, the player that you control has your intelligence, so give him intelligent actions to support his abilities! ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (23) INTRODUCTION OF THE PLAYERS Here is the pro roster that you are able to select from. Each player has unique abilities, so choose the one that best suits your style of play. Women's Circuit Amy This all-around good player has outstanding power and technique. Her footwork is very good. Kim This veteran player has lost some of her power since her first years in the pro circuit. However, she is still the final word in powerful service and a genius at net play. Lisa Her two-handed stroke can beat most of the other pro women players. Her footwork is excellent. Erin This powerful player is good at both net and stroke play. She seldom fails to return the ball. Donna Except for a slight weakness in her service, Donna has well balanced abilities in all other aspects of play. She is good at stroke play, and not too bad at net play either. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (24) Debbie This player is very good at hitting a highly accurate shot to places where the opponent isn't. Colett This stroke player shows her tenacity at the base line. Even though she doesn't have any overly strong abilities, she is a very reliable player. Nancy This player has strong service and is good at a base line game. Yuka The Japanese "ACE" Yuka, is a player who has a consistent stroke. Barb This player has very strong strokes. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (25) Men's Circuit Matt This veteran player has terrific strokes and a consistent service. He has the ability to hit a successful passing shot anywhere in the court. Brian Even though he is not the most powerful, Brian is the most well balanced player. His ability as a net player is combined with good skills at serve, volley, and return of service. Phil His strong service never goes downhill. Phil is an all-around good player who has a good, powerful stroke and jumping volley. John This powerful hitter has the most powerful forehand. His two-handed backhand is also terrific! A great base line player. Meyer This player plays with great tenacity near the base line. An all- around player with powerful stroke, he should end up being ranked high. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (26) Rich This player is a genius at net play! Although not always the most powerful, his perfect volley and guts cannot be compared with anyone else. Hiro Another skillful player from Japan, this stroke player persistently returns the ball. His shots are very accurate. Steve This all-around player has a powerful service and is good at both net and stroke play. Rob His mean service is as fast as a bullet. His other abilities are also above average, but he is not always consistent.
