I’m still not in the states yet, so I’m not on XBL. But i do check my live.xbox.com so I can atleast monitor friends requests and messages. I mean, i’m not going to bother putting up my GT(unless you guys want me to) now cause it’s pointless we won’t be able to play until october. You guys would probably get mad, cause there’d be a GT that’s not signing on and wasting space.
So right now i end up playing this game occasionally with others, over here, when I ask them to play. I had a friend here that was showing alot of competitive interest in it, but he’s now back in the states, and he is currently playing this game online. I’ll link him to this thread in an email, and maybe he’d be interested in playing with you guys.
From various play, reading different threads and things like that, i tried to come up with a tier list:
After that, it gets too blurry. I’d like to believe that, Haas, Sharapova, Henman, are high tier though. Maybe even putting Sharapova right at the bottom of the top tier.
I play Sharapova the most(with probably Blake as secondary), and she’s extremely good on clay surface.
I found that Williams and Haas’ footing is really good. You can run to one side and turn back to run to the other side much much much faster than the rest of the players, even if their speed isn’t as fast as Hingis(who is probably the fastest runner in the game), Nadal, and Grosjean. Williams and Haas’ footing is just too good, they don’t slip around the surfaces so they’re great for players that just want to react to the ball instead of setting it up. The complete opposite of that would be Hewitt though, all he does is trip around the courts, he has to already be there to bring in his big power returns. If you hit the ball right to him, if he’s going in the other direction he can’t turn back fast enough to get any power out of the hit. But Hewitt is still waaay too good though.
On clay, power hitters run the show, and Sharapova hits HARD. Flat out offense no doubt, but her footing isn’t all that great either. I’d say it’s alot better than Hewitt’s though. You have to commit. I find myself slicing to set up for a winner, and she gets alot of winning hits.
I’ve been told that there’s alot of Roddick being played online. That true?
Flat ball/Cord ball: Tap A early for a big swing, and right when you make contact with the ball hit away from the net+Y.
I can’t seem to get a good flat ball. Most of my strikes like this, either become a cord ball popping over the net or it just hits the net on my side.
What were the controls for the other types of risk shots?
