What's Happening

You are about to play tennis against a computerized opponent. The rules, swings and scoring of real tennis have all been applied.

If you are playing alone, the computer will challenge you in a single's match. If you are playing with a friend, you will both be on the same team, and the computer will challenge you in a double's match. THE OBJECT OF THE GAME is to win the match.


Match, Set And Game Defined


A match is composed of sets.

A set is composed of games.

A game is composed of points.

The winner of the match is the first player to win two out of three sets. The winner of a set is the first player to win six games, by at least a two-game lead. If a set should reach 6-6, a tie-breaker will be played to decide the set. (See below) The winner of a game is the first player to score four points, and do so with a two-point lead. If both players should score 3 points, the score becomes "Deuce" and play continues until one player reaches a two-point lead. In tennis, the first point scored in a game is shown as 15. The second point is 30, the third point is 40, and the fourth point is "Game" (assuming you have a two-point lead). A tie-breaker, as stated above, is used to decide a set if the score reaches 6-6. In a tie-breaker, the first player to score seven points, with at least a two-point lead, wins. Play will continue until there is a winning, two-point spread.

To Begin The Match

For a one-player game, press a start button on control pad 1. For a two-player game, press a start button on control pad 2. (Remember, both players will be on the same team, competing against the computer in a double's match.)

Controlling Your Strokes

The Directional button can move your player in any of the arrow-indicated directions shown above. Just press that point on the button. Buttons 1 and 2 can both be used as start buttons.

CALLING THE SHOTS

You can choose from four tennis swings. Depending on player positions and the height of the ball when hit, button 1 will cause a Ground Stroke, a Volley or a Smash. Button 2 will cause a Lob Shot.

Now, let's take a closer look at these swings.

The Ground Stroke can be used on a ball that has bounced once on the court. (Button 1)

A Volley can be used on a ball that has not yet bounced on the court. (Button 1)

A Smash can be used to return your opponent's high lob shot before it bounces. This is an intense return! Usually a winner. (Button 1)

A Lob Shot sends the ball up in an arch, high above the net. It can also be used as a sort of "escape" when a difficult ball comes your way. (Button 2)

Scoring

After every game, the current score will appear on the screen. (Your score is the upper one.) Remember, each game is scored in true tennis style:
