  1. For gamers who found Virtua Tennis 2K2 a little too easy, or Mario tennis a little too silly. It's a serious and thoughtful tennis game with challenging AI and a host f options and features that bring the realism out.
  2. Tennis Masters would be much more fun to play, however, if it weren’t for a bunch of annoying niggles. Chief among them is a strangely stuttery style of animation that goes totally against the seamless, fluid feel you’d expect.
  3. That's the beauty of Tennis Masters Series: beating it doesn't kill your desire to play it again. In fact, it may actually enhance it.
  4. The game doesn’t double fault, but it sure does have a bunch of 'lets'.
  5. The game could have been stellar, but it falls flat in one critical area. You never, ever hit a ball out.
  6. Sluggish controls, paper-thin career mode, fictitious players, and mediocre court graphics.
  7. Sure, it has loads of snazzy graphic features like persistent footprints on clay courts and nice shadow effects, but all they do is slow the game down to a brain-twisting crawl. [Jan 2002, p.119]
