Funny 2 posts. Hilarious. I loved this game in the arcade years back, and really want a game like that on my new ipad. But since the reviews seem mixed on this one, I'll try to catch it on sale later.

Sports games so far havent seemed to port all too well to ios devices yet. It seems like FPS, driving, puzzle, and most action games seem to fair well. But sports and 2d platformers may not translate as well because of a lack of joypads with lots of buttons.

This looks like a great game though, I hope they come out with an update soon.

How does the game look on the new ipad?

Despite the mixed reviews I downloaded it and am really enjoying it so far. I'm playing on an iPad 2 and haven't had disastrous frame-rate issues. Make sure you change the default button scheme and there's a lot of fun to be had

I would just like to add my mini-review from my comment on the TA review (2.5 stars):
"This review is a little harsh although I agree with most of it. (although licensing is costly and I could do without it).
My rating (3.5/5) For an iOS tennis quick-fix game... The game is fine. Great graphics, controls (the gamepad), and animations are great for an iOS game making it te best tennis game in the app store. The inability to save or customize your character, minor bugs, framerate issues, and lack of some of he modes from the console hold this game down.

... If all bugs are fixed - 4 stars. TA gives 4 stars all the time ... I think 2.5 is a little harsh for what the reviewer calls the best tennis game in the AppStore."

Also the difficulty is not bad... once you get the hang of an easier control scheme (such as gamepad)... even on "super hard" the game gets very easy.

I have been playing this game on the new ipad. It's mostly smooth 90% of the time with the ocasional framerate drop.
The only thing I don't like is the SPT main tour mode. I am not sure how it works. You can complete the 3 levels and you can't move on...if you try too it shows a date and they can't be selected. Meaning you have to replay the levels again until it lets you move on.

Does the most recent update solve the frame-rate issue?

...I doubt it. But I really wish it did.

Yes, I would also like to know if the update fixes any of the issues.

I played some after updating but can't really say if anything is different. Maybe less slowdowns. Hard to tell.

Hate to say it, but this still runs like crap on iPhone 4. :/
