Decided to give it a try because I am a college level player. It is decent, I am playing on my new ipad. The graphics are really good, retina ipad I think. This is much better than I expected.

The problem is the framerate, it does skip frames even on my new ipad, so that kind of sucks. The players are just generic too which is no fun cause I wish they had Federer, Nadal, etc.. Also, no women players.

The controls many have lambasted, but there are now 4 control modes, all work fine. The swipe controls take some getting used to, but it is cool to have. I like the joystick mode the best.

The game does not play like Virtua tennis in the arcades at all, it plays more like a stiffer computer game.

Anyway, I think the game is fun and would recommend it to anyone that likes tennis. This is a game which I doubt will go free, so probably better to pick it up for $3. I think this is a game which you would like it even more after getting the hang of it.

Wish I could load it on my iphone 4 for you, but I got no disk space for it. Hopefully someone else can give you some feedback on how it runs on the iphone.
