    What is your Wii tennis score?

    I'm at around 1450 at the moment and the 1900/2000 opposition make it tough to get more points.

    Has anyone made it to 2000?

    Yes, I have, about 2050-something. Unless you win without conceding a game you lose points, and the max you can gain seems to be about 4 or 5.
    Oh yeah, the line goes off the top of the graph.

    I am about 1950(ish), it does get tricky not to let your score slip, it tends to be better if you go for the long 'best of 5' games

    My friend said he had reached 2000 odd, and indeed when he came round he smashed unwinnable returns to any of my serves that weren't aces, and generally showed a disturbing amount of time spent in front of the Wii!

    Yep. When you play someone who is top notch, they basically hit about 95% power serves (or more) , and if you dont do a power serve, they hit an unstoppable return.

    You end up, unless you basically master getting a fast serve in every time, hitting a really slow rubblish serve (hit it really late) and they cant do their "outright winner" but then they kind of are on top of the point and after a few generic shots over the net their guy at the net volleys a winner.
    Bottom line- rallies are rare / impossible when two "top" players are in a vs match.

    I am sure its been answered before, but how do you do the power serves? Mine seem to be luck more than anything.

    I got to 2000 by the simple method of just returning everything, and waiting for the characters to make mistakes, but it was hard work, and when I tried to liven things up by learning how to spin the ball, I started loosing my rhythm and quickly fell-back to around 1500 points, where I have since stayed. Still playing it lots though. You do a "fast" serve by hitting the server at the top of the toss, but I haven't mastered doing it every time.

    I realised over the weekend that the AI players are actually rubbish - I got far closer games from my drunk mates than I have got from the AI for weeks. I think it is because the AI is more predictable than my drunk mates, and they used the "net" player more, which means you have to think very quickly to get the return made.

    I'm told that you have to hit the ball as it pauses at the top of the throw - anytime before or after gives you a normal serve.

    Anyone mastered the art of adding spin to a serve to counter those pesky winning returns?

    So I'm led to believe. Not managed it myself nor has anyone been able to tell me exactly how to do it. Maybe it's an urban myth.

    Nah - you cannot add spin to serves. I wish you could, but it cannot be done. It can be hit either reailly fast, or "standard" , or really slow. Thats it.

    the thing is that powerserv looks really cool and sometimes you do direct points with it, (return goes out)... but usually the normal serve is better, because the A.I opponent is returning quicker(and longline), wich is better for u becuse you can immediatly score with the netplayer (by smashing diagonal between the players) ...
    the whole game is about timing... playing agains the A.I cpu is totaly different then playing a human opponent... different skills!

    Wow, that's cool to know. What an awesome game though.



    2270, but you have to win every point or you go backwards.
    Even if you win a perfect game, you only gain 5 points.

    Sorry to say that if I lose a point, I now restart the game from scratch rather than lose ground.

    It starts to get boring just trying to get to the maximum (despite being addictive and a fantastic game).

    I find it more fun to play mixed doubles with my wife against two professional A.I players with 2000 and 1900 respectively. Although you don't gain or lose points, it is great for bonding - "well played, partner" etc

    I assume it's when you get zero points for winning to love.
    I read that the max is 2399 on a Google site

    I managed to get to 2397, but am now going backwards as the two best A.I. players have changed to ones with lower scores. Even a perfect game gives negative points.

    You can stop that by doing a slow serve, really slow. Just hit it "really" late as the ball comes down.
    Basically against anyone who knows what they are doing, you must either serve a power serve, or the really slow serve. Either of these two types of serve mean the opponet cannot do a winning return. However if you mess up going for the power serve, you will hit the "medium pace" serve, and you lose the point immediately.

    Here is what you do- practise until you can hit maybe 80% of the time power serves. Then during the game, mix it up - fast vs slow serves. NEVER hit a medium pacer, else you are dead.

    I was dead disappointed when I broke 2000 AND NOTHING HAPPENED - they could at least have put some kind of "you won a trophy" thing in there - how much effort would that have taken?
