Tennis Basics

Driven by dexterity and speed, tennis is a classic sport combining physical and mental skills in which you confront opponents on a court bandying shots and tricks until a winner emerges.

While using your keyboard to move, you are able to appoint the desired destination of the ball using the mouse. Special shots can be triggered by using combinations of your mouse buttons. The following options can be adjusted: Field Type (Clay, Grass and Synthetic), Winning Sets, Games per set, Tie Break.




In order to aim, move the targeting circle with the mouse cursor to the desired area of the court.
