Every since last update can’t play keeps crashing 😟😫 When is next update.
Make another game
by Tyrell76 on 2020/01/23 15:30
I really like playing tennis games but I hope there will be another game but we can customize our play skin, look , what he or she wear, rackets I love the game really hope you make a another one soon just don’t put any of the ads in the game cause then the game will crash or I have to pause mid match to hear the sound affects.
Ad-Free == Ad-Full && Absolutely Useless Multi-Player
by Seattle Rex on 2020/01/15 22:41
I bought it to play multi-player with my family. Big problem .. There is a replay after each point. After each point! Oh, and they take at least 2x longer than the live gameplay. We spend 80% of our playing time watching replays, or cutting to/from replays or cut scenes. This is not an exaggeration, and it’s beyond frustrating. You want to play tennis, but your continuity is broken, and you are relegated to being a spectator for most of time. And no, you cannot turn it off. Major show-stopper that ruins the experience completely. As if Is this weren’t bad enough, “ad-free” has Ads. It’s bizarre, since everyone knows what an ad is ... and everyone knows what ‘ad-free’ means. The dev simply re-defines the term ‘ad-free’ to mean ‘ads for our products only’ ... while still fully conceding that they are ... ready now ... Ads. Oh, and to be clear, there are still Ads for other products too. Imagine selling an ‘Ad-Free’ experience that takes people’s money, gives them ads, then saying ‘so, yeah, this is our interpretation of ad-free. We want the money you’re willing to part with when you think you won’t have ads, but we still want revenue from the ads. Fortunately, the App Store makes this effortless to put l off. Best of all, once you realize there are still ads, you already spent your money, and we’ve made all we can from you anyway, so feel free to call and register a complaint at 1-800-POUND-SAND” Mobile continues it’s full speed push to become a full-on scammer’s bazaar. It won’t last forever, so I guess they’re playing it for all it’s worth while they can. It’s too bad too, because otherwise it’s a good game.

A very poorly built game
by saissk on 2020/01/10 18:37
Totally not recommended.
Rubbish!
by Bilal YD on 2019/12/22 11:42
I was playing this game years ago! It was a revolutionary game with its graphics and fluidity back then! But today playing it on my XS Max it’s rubbish and lot of ads I was giving it a shot before buying the premium version but I end up removing it immediately! Dev teams could have updated and made it a great game! Unfortunately it’s a downgrade.
Dodgy controls and buggy
by kimoki67 on 2019/12/14 04:37
The sound works, usually. I have to adjust it every so often as it quits, and that’s the only way to get it started. I never really had control of the player. Moving the control about 50% got about 5% movement. 55% got about 80% movement. No control adjustment would change this, and I got lucky enough to be in front of the ball about 10% of the time to hit it. Instead of removing the competition, I’m going to remove this game as a failed experiment.
this game is fuqing trash
by HS6939 on 2019/12/04 04:37
this game is pathetic and fuqing trash
Great.....but
by billbbo on 2019/11/14 21:49
This is such a great game! Best one out! Buuuuut, you guys need to fix it where the game pause on adds.. if the other is serving and a add comes up and plays for 30 seconds once it’s over the other computer has already won the match or scored the entire time the add plays. Quite annoying.. but still a great game!
Cheat!!!
by amyetvkrkf on 2019/11/01 02:26
This game totally cheats... it slows your player down to allow the other opponent to score. It also stops your player from making moves and hitting the ball! This is becoming a poor app game!!!
The best tennis game but few people play it
by ask rating So many times on 2019/10/26 20:02
I don't know why this good tennis game online get 3.6 star, is the control? or characters? or something else? from what I think, I ve been playing this game from my iPhone5 to iPhone Pro. what do 2dollars can do in nowadays but purchase this wonderful game? SEGA please let more people to know this wonderful game !!!
No multiplayer
by Kowalskii1 on 2019/10/17 23:46
If you download this game to play with friends its bad decision . Multiplayer is unplayable, hard to connect to room via Bluetooth, if you spend 15 minutes turning off and on your device and Bluetooth you might get lucky ... but for a second , first second of match starts it will crush or it will lag like north Korean internet ( ios 13.1.3 IPhone Xs max )
MFI Support Iz BACK!!!

What more could you ask for? MFI on ipad 12.9, Who wants some?!?!
!!v3.0.6 Reintroduced Ads for PAID app users!!
by iPhoneIfIMust on 2019/10/16 21:37
v3.0.6 Update, iPhone 7 Plus, iOS 13.1.2 -Reintroduced Ads intermittently showing when opening the app for a PAID user - please remove! -Why is a PAID app user required to give consent for personal data to be shared with advertising partners for personalized Ads? I have already paid, my information should not be REQUIRED to be shared! Please remove! -Slight frame rate issues seem to be introduced with this update. This seems more noticeable in Low Power Mode (this was not an issue before). Not as bad as in some past updates. Mostly just annoying this time around. +CPU seems to be playing slightly more “fair”. +Still a top notch tennis game. Please fix the issues! Excellent tennis game. Virtua Tennis has always been an excellent tennis game ever since the Dreamcast. I will concede that the CPU opponents abilities surpass their stated ratings and there are some shots that naturally would not be possible (which can be frustrating in the heat of the moment), but it is an arcade game. After investing the time to learn the touch controls (Virtual Pad setting recommended), the CPU can be beaten with patients 80-90% of the time on the highest difficulty. I am glad that the advertisements that were still present after buying the game were finally removed (there are still ads, but now you are not FORCED to view them). I was quite irritated and disappointed when they were still there after purchasing the game. Lastly a couple of feature requests, I would like the option to use all of the players in the game. It would also be great to be able to see each players ratings on the player select screen as well as the opponents ratings prior to the match in Exhibition Mode just like the SPT World Tour mode.
Thanks for updates
by Chriss29 on 2019/10/15 11:24
Finally a game from SEGA that receives constant updates and bug fixes. Thanks developers for the support , great game !!
Little annoying
by Saif Al-Faris on 2019/10/10 06:22
Please make it compatible with iPhone 11
Why did you change it?
by Xis10shell1 on 2019/10/01 10:31
This was such a good game. I played this for hours on end back in 2014. But you've changed the game, the way you control/hit the shots, and it's awful. Before, it was similar to playing actual tennis. Now, you have to select a stroke from an icon on the screen. It's really bad. Please change it back.
Not that bad
by Stezlic on 2019/09/28 08:58
The game’s good but they don’t update and in terms of multiplayer it’s moderate need to fix glitches
Would give a 5, but
by Yo2222222222 on 2019/08/10 20:18
Great graphics, great concept, BUT the ads play over the first point when your opponent is serving, so you start every game that you are receiving down a point. You exit the ad just in time to see that you are down Love - 15...need to fix that. MAJOR FLAW
The free 15
by Supernova777 on 2019/08/06 17:04
The Opponent team always get a free 15 when I go into Ad is so annoying can you please fix your game or can you please make us turn off our Wi-Fi and make us have no ads😡😡😡😡😡😡
Demasiado
by ajgsknedk on 2019/07/13 23:08
Mucha publicidad y cuando termina la publicidad el juego continúa sin audio muy mal
Good but often crashes on multi-player
by Danstone77 on 2019/07/11 07:47
This is a great game, considering the speed, graphics and playability being on an iPad. It also has Bluetooth multiplayer which is great but me and my son haven’t managed to complete a full match without it freezing up. Shame, as it has loads of potential. The instant replays are a bit annoying, as is the slow-mo hit which basically makes it impossible to return, but a solid 3.5/5 * for now.
Great game but needs an update
by Blackgrim23 on 2019/07/08 17:23
The game is great and I spent lots of hours in it, but now having my iPhone Xs the game screen is small compared to the new edge to edge display, this game needs to be updated to fit the new generation of iPhones.
Thank you
by bobdougy on 2019/06/21 09:40
Thanks for the long awaited fix!
They fixed it
by R3v!ewer on 2019/06/20 03:55
The joystick control is now working again. Glad to see it though it took months.
MFi controller no longer works
by GiggityQuandry on 2019/06/19 09:37
Update 6/19/19: Steelseries Nimbus MFi controller analog sticks no longer work with this game. Directional pad does work, however I miss the analog stick control. Same situation with Steelseries Stratus. Running on iPad Pro 10.5, iOS 12.3.1. Both of those controller's analog sticks used to work correctly in iOS 11, please update for iOS 12.X+
Glitchiest game ever
by drock23888765 on 2019/06/19 03:25
I don’t know how this game got clearance to be on the App Store none of the buttons work after I serve lol don’t waste your time
Piece of Sh@:
by Rpf4lv on 2019/06/14 04:08
The game would be great if it wasn’t rig so you can’t get past a certain point. It’s always the same...I can win 3 straight games in a set and then the game changes and you can’t win another game. The other player never misses no matter how good the shot is. I’ve deleted the game.
Something is wrong
by Elyte01 on 2019/06/12 03:25
Been playing this game for a long time but all of a sudden the controls are not working correctly. I can not move the player and angle my shots when trying to hit the ball. I didn’t have an issue until the last update i guess. I have deleted the app and reinstated it with the same issues. Can anyone help?
Buggy !
by HarryPilote on 2019/06/10 10:53
Ever since the new update It’s not able to hit the ball and choose the directions anymore. All you can do is return the ball in the center of the field. So annoying!!
Frame rate is terrible on iPhone XS
by hiandel on 2019/06/08 14:02
The new version frame rate is very terrible on my new iPhone XS, but the pervious version frame rate is perfect on my iPhone 6s.please fix it and release new version.thanks!
5 star quality
by MoMo Bill on 2019/06/06 07:39
Basically identical to the console version, a real quality game. Totally recommend it. Thanks, SEGA.
Lagging
by SundayDuffer on 2019/06/02 23:01
Ive perfected this game on android, undefeated. Just bought the 12.9 latest ipad pro 3rd gen, and this version is just super laggy...and i cant activate the supershot..i use swipe format. Please fix.
Fun but limited
by Theron's worst enemy on 2019/05/25 19:35
My game keeps freezing and I can’t control the angle of the ball any more I had $34million in the bank and after not playing for a while I have $500k idk what’s that about. I uninstalled and installed and restarted my iPad but nothing seemed to changed. I hope this gets fixed
I got so many bug on my iphone 6s
by Andrewslarsoon on 2019/05/24 17:00
I really want to play this game 🙏 please update
Fix this
by Exige* on 2019/05/13 18:10
Ever since an update, you can’t move and hit at the same time, meaning that two fingers can’t touch it at the same time.
Game glitch!
by Terris07 on 2019/05/12 21:39
Hi developers, suddenly the app’s controls (in any mode) are not responding. Only can hit ball but cannot choose a direction for it to go. I tried quitting and reopening the app and even deleted and reinstalled it (losing all the data and being forced to start from scratch) and NOTHING. Please fix! Thank you. (iOS 12.2).
Too many glitches
by Nonickname00098538 on 2019/05/12 03:37
Too many glitches. Controls become unresponsive at times. Play begins during the ads. A shame because it could be a good one, but it is unplayable as it is
Recent update
by Meesamali on 2019/05/08 20:08
Hi, recent update has messed up the game completely. None of the buttons work while holding joystick on left,during the game. Can’t hit the ball or nothing.i am using ipad pro 11 inch. Please fix it. Otherwise game is useless. It was working fine before the update.
Controls are terrible
by Kyle Sciacca on 2019/05/06 13:11
Good look playing this without a joystick
Can’t aim shots
by AleLazzati on 2019/05/05 18:42
After about the first game I can no longer aim where my shots go. They just go straight down the middle and it takes forever to finish the match.
Fix the controls already!
by mgg8080 on 2019/04/24 23:53
Read the room, fellas...serve is not working, stroke controls are not responding. Your last update destroyed the game. Revert to the prior version if nothing else is possible.
Unplayable
by Kdj1005 on 2019/04/24 23:21
The most recent update makes the game unplayable. Thanks a lot developers. Such a waste. Was a pretty good game too.
This Is The Best Game Of Tennis, But I Need Update
by Mgdjxk on 2019/04/24 23:09
Please Developers of This Game Need A Update To My IPhone XS Max!! Please This Game Is Amazing!! I Loved Play Tennis!! Thanks Anticipated.
Don’t work on iOS 11 or higher
by Buiiiiico on 2019/04/15 17:03
Unfortunately don’t work anymore. Multitouch don’t work, impossible to play. Or you run, or you hit. Chame.
Don’t buy the ad-free version
by Big Thief on 2019/04/14 15:57
Displays ads, even after paying for the ad-free version.
need improvement!!
by FCBS41 on 2019/04/14 01:41
sometimes no reaction from the bottons and really careless on lots of parts sometimes even the score is not correct! of course as a free game there are too many ads !
Falls flat, disappointing
by kristinleiiigh on 2019/04/12 06:00
I love Sega, and grew up playing Sonic. However, this game is the biggest disappointment. Not only are the controls difficult but there’s not much you can do to influence power or trajectory. The graphics aren’t great, but if the controls were better it wouldn’t matter. In fact, the graphics on the old sega console are better than the graphics on this game. The worst thing by far is the fact there is not a single female character you can choose from. There might be an unlockable female character, but if there is I didn’t see it. There’s probably 10 different male characters you can choose from, so why not one woman? Many of the greatest tennis players are women. Most people don’t even know of a tennis player that isn’t Serena, Venus, or Maria. If you’re looking for a tennis game that allows you to have more control over your character, I highly suggest ultimate tennis. Not only is the game better, but they actually have an even amount of male and female characters. I’m in no way a “modern feminist”, but in 2019 you would think women would be represented as much as men, especially in a game that revolves around a sport who gets the majority of its publicity from its female athletes.
Fix does not work
by Tengol on 2019/04/12 02:02
Can no longer serve and hit or run. Game is now horrible.
Great fun game!! Just one tiny glitch.
by YaraWalker on 2019/04/11 10:16
Won't launch on IOS 9.3.5 after update
Update broke it
by Big Dawg 98 on 2019/04/10 01:03
The strawberries are rotten, the last update made the controls unresponsive
Best Sports Game
by Jason13151 on 2019/04/07 21:37
One of the best tennis games with excellent controls. It includes a training mode which I recommend to get the feel for the game. As you win matches you can earn points towards spending for the big league. Overall, worth it and very addictive.
Female characters
by Twix TG on 2019/04/07 08:26
This game needs to be more diverse. They should have female characters. Also it keeps playing ads every match.
PLEASE FIX CONTROLS
by nairbel on 2019/04/06 05:35
Please fix controls!!!!
My Review on the game !
by 3B4A on 2019/04/05 09:11
I’m from Egypt , and i become a fan of this game ! The game is very good but with some adjustments , it can be fascinating ! I think you may introduce some features like changing costume in the world tour , adding some new tournaments , removing some bugs and reducing adds a little if you prefer . Thanks !
Cannot press hit button while run. Please fix.
by PhoenizBeamSuke on 2019/04/02 09:18
Cannot press hit button while run. Please fix.
Horrible control
by Rebelforce08 on 2019/04/02 02:47
The controls took a turn for the worse. What happened? Can’t hit the ball and move at the same time anymore. Unable to move forward and hit the ball. Very disappointed. Game is unplayable now.
Can’t restore my purchase
by xyliu117 on 2019/03/30 03:40
I bought this game years ago. And recently I decided to download it again and see if there’s something new. To my disappointment, the only ‘new’ stuff is the ads. And to make things worse, I can’t restore my purchase to remove the ads. So long Virtual Tennis. Thanks for ruining my good memories of you.
Recent update causing issues
by tasman50 on 2019/03/29 17:28
The recent update makes this unplayable. The controls do not work as they did. I’ve been playing this a long time and was able to defeat anyone but now I can’t even win 1 game against the worst.
Repetitive
by Jincqx on 2019/03/28 13:46
It’s a fun game but repetitive. I have beaten Theron a dozen times and somehow he still rises in the ranks. Also, I can’t play anymore due to some glitch. I could serve, but my buttons won’t work when returning volleys all of a sudden. Put way too much time in to delete app and start all over again.
Controls do not work
by VSVieira on 2019/03/26 23:49
Since the latest update the controls no longer work properly. Used to be a great game.
Nimbus Controls Broken
by Z32Driver on 2019/03/24 06:01
I used to use my SteelSeries Nimbus and it worked perfectly. Now, the analog stick doesn’t work. Only the d pad is working. Please fix!
What is going on!
by QueensReviewer on 2019/03/22 21:49
Loved this app but it hasn’t been working like it should all week. Can’t control player or shots like before. Getting ready to delete and move on. Disappointed’
Controls messed up on iPhone X
by sbaneel23 on 2019/03/22 17:01
I opened up this game after a while today and started up an exhibition match. I immediately noticed that the there were major issues with the controls as I could not hit the ball and use the joystick this time. This made it practically impossible to play the game and needs to be fixed so people can enjoy this wonderful game.
This game was good until the update
by Amillard01 on 2019/03/22 03:40
This game was my go-to game on my phone when I had nothing to do and a full battery. It was smooth and honestly very similar to the original. Unfortunately, after a large update a number of months ago, I lost my no ads purchase, the game is constantly frame-dropping(which shouldn’t be a problem as I have an iPhone X) and the controls sometimes don’t work at all. I don’t know what the developers were thinking when they changed this game, but everything that was done, in my opinion, was done for the worse. Please fix these issues and stop worrying about making money on ads.
Update buggy as well. Better sound, but power play doesn’t work!
by Fwartypants on 2019/03/21 05:43
Please fix!
Ut oh 2.9.3 won't run
by csericmy on 2019/03/21 04:56
Just upgraded IPad and it won't run. Tap to open, it flashes and crashes. Please fix asap
Please fix bug after latest update
by Ebakertennis on 2019/03/21 02:59
After the most recent (update 3/19/19) you cannot press more than one button at a time. In other words, you cannot aim while holding the shot type buttons which is very problematic. Hopefully it was not intentional. If so, it took my 5 star rating to a 1 star in terms of playability and overall enjoyment of the game.
Controls broken since last update
by jmorr649 on 2019/03/20 01:47
After the recent update you can’t hit the ball and use the directional “pad” at the same time. This has been an awesome game until this update. This means you can’t aim the ball. You have to pick move or hit but can’t use both at the same time. Please fix this great game! Thank you.
Broken
by KvngKkimg on 2019/03/19 23:16
Since the new update, I can’t hold down the hit button while I move. I have to move my character to the ball and then I have to let go of my left finger and then I could push the hit button. I’ll def put a 5 stars if u fix it. This is one of my favorite games
Great game but latest update...
by Kikonoi on 2019/03/19 13:50
This is definitely one of the best tennis games. I used to have it on Sony PSP. This is not the full version though and there is some lag sometimes so it’s not performing as well as on the PSP, but that said, it’s still very enjoyable. One important thing to developers, the latest update prevents the controls to work. It’s just impossible to play anymore. Please fix this ASAP.
Bad bug
by Termage on 2019/03/19 12:18
Latest update disables hitting while moving when using any of the virtual pads. Basically unplayable at the moment.
Application Crashes
by Hassan Nasir on 2019/03/19 04:05
Hi, i have an ipad 2 with ios version 9.3.5. Ever since i have downloaded the latest update the application is crashing. Please advice how this can be fixed because i am unable to play this game. Thanks.
Update has made the game unplayable
by TPatrickVan on 2019/03/18 18:12
This most resent update has made it so you cannot press a button while controlling movement with any of the controller options like arcade Please fix this ASAP as I am addicted to this game And I think we should add more levels to make the game even harder
This game is trash
by TevM91 on 2019/03/16 06:53
This game is trash and rigged. I’m number 1 ranked, I have over 10 million dollars or coins (whatever they are) I’ve beaten Theron Tenneil tons of times. But this game is so rigged it’s blatant. So I deleted the app
Terrible
by RezaTbi on 2019/03/14 16:50
Make it compatible with iPhone X
BGM problems
by djkchdhc on 2019/02/27 16:49
After updating. When the player servings, it becomes so bad, not fluently at all. And after the point, then music suddenly gone, it’s so not cool. Please repair it asap!
Worst tennis game I have ever played
by wxs116 on 2019/02/24 00:54
Worst tennis game I have ever played. The opponent becomes impossible to beat once you reach the final. This game is so rigged
No longer compatible ?
by MrMac232 on 2019/02/08 06:31
For the longest my gamesir controller was working flawlessly with this game as of last update it’s no longer recognized
Love this game.!!
by Myankee286 on 2019/01/26 06:27
I really wish they would come out with a new virtual tennis game and updated version but keep everything the same. With the real players and everything. But this is the best time is game ever I’m playing it for years. Since it came out. I just ask invoice for a new updated version. Sorry had to update my review I’m lowering it to Styers because I have a iPhone 7 Plus it’s been glitching during the game it freezes and you can’t hear the judges voice anymore they don’t tell you the score and it’s glitching and I can’t serve the ball it’s like freezing. So I hat I uninstalled and then reinstalled it and it still doing it. Please updated and correct this problem. I’ll go back to four stores.
Advertising not allow you play!!!
by Tennis was my passion on 2019/01/18 05:57
Adv not allow you play. You lose points because you will see the adv then the opponent serve the ball. This is crazy...
Fun then not so fun
by Snaker60543 on 2019/01/13 22:12
Very poor navigation controls leads to frustrating game against top opponents Game is fun with good graphics but outdated Would be great for sega to update it
controller support is gone!!!
by the truth 1990 on 2019/01/08 05:39
Hi developers,Can you bring back MFI controller support??? I loved this game but it’s too frustrating with touch controls! Why did you do this? Makes me want to delete this awesome game to save space.

Please app update with iphone XS MAX because don’t work manually please update please update thank you
Love the game
by PopeyeBHB on 2018/12/15 04:48
Overall my 2nd fav game to play. I’ve tried other tennis games and this is by far the best one in my opinion.My game difficulty is hard and the opponents give you a run for your $ especially the #1 seed.Only problem is it glitches as you serve and also the audio is pretty bad at times. It fades in and out or completely shuts off during gameplay.Would love to be able to do more with the players like change attire or rackets maybe and have a few more options on players you can play with maybe even create your own player.Other than that ✌️thumbs up. Need this on ps4🎮
No more Mfi support
by Brian528 on 2018/12/03 18:09
WAS best tennis game on ios (if not best sports game). Now, with no mfi support (Nimbus controller), it's unplayable. Waiting for an update.
Its alright
by Roger McFederer on 2018/11/29 06:29
I enjoy playing the game but there are a lot if inaccuracies and it is frustrating at time. An example is when volleying, the guy tends to hit it like a grandma and just give away points or when hitting a “drop-shot” it just hits a really high lob. Also another issue is that it doesn’t support the IPhone X which would’ve looked amazing. Overall the game is playable but have very bad mechanics.
Was great!
by MabeMonster on 2018/11/21 02:39
This was the best tennis app period until the last update now the music and graphics are not smooth even on iPhonex. This just started with the ads update at Halloween. Please fix this!!!
Same Issue with frame rate. Do not update to V2.9
by Jerry Madness on 2018/11/19 03:56
After upgrade V 2.9, the frame rate is terrible on my iphone x. Had no problem with choppy frame on my iphone 5, iphone 6 with previous version. Please fix this issue on next version. This is my favorite tennis game and play everyday during break but this terrible frame rate made me upset. There is no way to restore back to older version.
Latest update installed: poor frame rate
by rsturner2002 on 2018/11/11 21:28
Please fix the frame rate lag/jitters from this latest update. Unplayable now.
Bug game
by Kowalski7 on 2018/11/04 06:47
After update recently Too many bug you made Is this game what your testing stuff? Time goes that makes more bug What a crazy
After October 30th update
by naivojki on 2018/11/03 05:16
The game now lags ans stutters after the recent update. Please fix it.
Great until the recent update
by dejamike on 2018/11/01 02:29
I am not able to use my physical game controller after the update. Please fix it ASAP.
Please fix lag!
by T is for tyler on 2018/11/01 00:32
I played this game daily and loved it. Installed new update and now the game lags so bad I can’t play it!!
Bad update 😡
by abo-fadi on 2018/10/31 20:53
Bad update please review...
Tooo lag when serve after recent update
by FrankJin0714 on 2018/10/31 03:19
Tooo lag when serve after recent update
😒
by Amirshhb on 2018/10/30 09:37
After 10 month ,awful update and add advertisment 😏😏
Good but very flawed
by Rex36 on 2018/10/25 01:36
This game can be highly addictive and very fun... until you realize two things: 1) Theron Tenniel has been given a HUGE advantage by the developers. He is almost comically hard to beat, which can feel good when you outwit him and reach the top levels, but very frustrating when he goes on a 9 win tear against you by making shots that your player can’t even begin to achieve. It’s just uncanny how fast he can reach the opposite side of the court when you slam a shot straight to the corner. Come on Sega, I get that you had to make him THE GUY, but it’s almost silly how easily he defies physics. 2) You’ll be pestered to buy the “ad free” version for $2.99. When you finally break down and do it, you’ll be pestered by ads for other Sega games that don’t allow you to close them out without clicking them which only then opens another box to download said game. Shame on you Sega. I’m not downloading anymore of your games thanks to this little con.
Horrendous control
by Giggling junkie on 2018/10/17 07:51
On iPhone 7 seems like no one can win. Controls are very unresponsive. I’m glad I didn’t pay for the full version.
Free and fun
by cad80_99 on 2017/08/15 17:00
I enjoy this game and it's free. A few gripes I have. If exit game via home button it seems to not be hit and miss for saving. So at time will have to replay the match. Also seems to not always register the swipe motion. Will swipe down and it will not do the correct shot. Or I will swipe up and instead my player will just run to the last spot I touched. Also many times player will hit ball out of bounds. Many times I am in the middle of court, hit to me and I will hit to the side and computer player is on opposite side and will go wide and out of bounds. But it's free and overall still fun to play.
Good but needs work
by Das AutoVW on 2018/06/18 17:22
First, for those of you having issues beating Theron Tenniele, here's a tip, don't hit to his forehand...at all. I only hit to his forehand if it's going to be a winner, otherwise I hit EVERYTHING to his backhand. I've been playing this game for some time now, and It's definitely one of the better tennis games for iPad. I use the on screen buttons for controls, but find often during a match that the buttons are way too small. I end up pressing the space between the buttons quite often. Would be awesome if those were scaleable so we could make them bigger or smaller. Also as some others have pointed out, it's almost comical how the game works when playing Theron Tenniele. It never fails, first set I beat him 6-0, and then in the second set I'm up 4-0 or 5-0 and then the game gets erratic..my player doesn't hit the ball as hard anymore, he runs erratically around the court, doesn't hit the ball at all or some other odd behavior. He usually wins 2, 3, 4 or 5 games in a row because of this before I weather the storm. I always know around game 4 of the second set, I will have a fight my hands because getting to and hitting the ball becomes an obstacle, and it has nothing to do with the way the Theron Tenniele is playing. If the player is going to beat me, let the player beat me, don't make my player glitch, so now I have to fight the software and the player. Other than that, the game is good.

Better tennis game but the Theron glitch spoils it
by popeyedoyle414 on 2018/08/12 04:20
Game is pretty decent in terms of tennis gameplay. Mechanics feel right. However, Theron Thinnel is the player in the game that’s unbeatable thanks to a designed Developer glitch. Once you’ve beaten most of the tournaments, you’ll face TT at every final. He’ll cheat and beat you every time. Gotta use some skill and luck. Don’t get me started on the lack of customization for tennis gear and tennis courts. It’s truly lacking these sort after features by fans of this game. You’ll play this game for about month. Then you’ll eventually delete it because it gets repetitive, boring, and tiring because of TT’s cheating. Download, play it, but don’t set high hopes. You’ll be disappointed. This is just a commuter game. You play this on the train, bus, or for downtime. That’s it!
Fun But Repetitive
by dougieritch on 2017/09/21 03:51
This is the best tennis game on the iPhone. The graphics are great and the playability is good but repetitive. Sega could add so much to the game if they would model it after Tiger Woods Golf. Meaning allowing your player to build skills, buy new equipment and apparel, etc. A few complaints: 1) I purchased the game and continue to receive one advertisement for another Sega game while it loads. No big deal but many times when I attempt to exit out of the ad it takes me to the store to buy it where I have to exit out of the store and return to the game. 2) I have become very frustrated with the inability to hit winners at the net. What would be a net winner in any real tennis game require 2-3 net shots to win the point. 3) Theron Tenniel is ridiculous and the game blatantly cheats in his favor. I have beaten him at the top level (530,000) but it becomes frustrating when he constantly dives for game winners, gets to balls no one else in the game can reach, and rarely are balls ever called out on him. Not to mention all you get for beating him is money. I finally became so frustrated with the unfair play I deleted the game off my phone. It just wasn't worth my time and aggravation.
Falls flat, disappointing
by kristinleiiigh on 2019/04/12 06:00
I love Sega, and grew up playing Sonic. However, this game is the biggest disappointment. Not only are the controls difficult but there’s not much you can do to influence power or trajectory. The graphics aren’t great, but if the controls were better it wouldn’t matter. In fact, the graphics on the old sega console are better than the graphics on this game. The worst thing by far is the fact there is not a single female character you can choose from. There might be an unlockable female character, but if there is I didn’t see it. There’s probably 10 different male characters you can choose from, so why not one woman? Many of the greatest tennis players are women. Most people don’t even know of a tennis player that isn’t Serena, Venus, or Maria. If you’re looking for a tennis game that allows you to have more control over your character, I highly suggest ultimate tennis. Not only is the game better, but they actually have an even amount of male and female characters. I’m in no way a “modern feminist”, but in 2019 you would think women would be represented as much as men, especially in a game that revolves around a sport who gets the majority of its publicity from its female athletes.
Great game with a few problems
by Dude that Reviewed on 2017/11/23 19:43
I love the game, but I have a few issues. First, the characters are pretty slow, and when they retrieve a shot, they take way too long to recover. I wish the characters could slide like the pros do, or at least on clay. Second, I would like to be able to unlock the faster indoor courts. Finally, I, and probably many other people as well, want to be able to choose any character from the fifty some in the game to play as it choose for story mode. I especially would like to look like Theron Tenniel and have his strokes. Other than that, the game is fine.
Good but often crashes on multi-player
by Danstone77 on 2019/07/11 07:47
This is a great game, considering the speed, graphics and playability being on an iPad. It also has Bluetooth multiplayer which is great but me and my son haven’t managed to complete a full match without it freezing up. Shame, as it has loads of potential. The instant replays are a bit annoying, as is the slow-mo hit which basically makes it impossible to return, but a solid 3.5/5 * for now.
Love this game.!!
by Myankee286 on 2019/01/26 06:27
I really wish they would come out with a new virtual tennis game and updated version but keep everything the same. With the real players and everything. But this is the best time is game ever I’m playing it for years. Since it came out. I just ask invoice for a new updated version. Sorry had to update my review I’m lowering it to Styers because I have a iPhone 7 Plus it’s been glitching during the game it freezes and you can’t hear the judges voice anymore they don’t tell you the score and it’s glitching and I can’t serve the ball it’s like freezing. So I hat I uninstalled and then reinstalled it and it still doing it. Please updated and correct this problem. I’ll go back to four stores.
This game was good until the update
by Amillard01 on 2019/03/22 03:40
This game was my go-to game on my phone when I had nothing to do and a full battery. It was smooth and honestly very similar to the original. Unfortunately, after a large update a number of months ago, I lost my no ads purchase, the game is constantly frame-dropping(which shouldn’t be a problem as I have an iPhone X) and the controls sometimes don’t work at all. I don’t know what the developers were thinking when they changed this game, but everything that was done, in my opinion, was done for the worse. Please fix these issues and stop worrying about making money on ads.
Ok Game
by ¡Jk! on 2018/06/01 14:06
Overall this is one of the better tennis games in the app store. The gameplay and mechanics aren’t too bad. However I agree with most people here in that there isn’t much to do in game. The career mode is very repetitive as the only reward for winning matches is in-game currency, which can only be used for to enter other tournaments. There is no stat system for player skills and no way to upgrade your personal player. Along with this, there are no customization options for your player. The online multiplayer is also bit suspect. I have yet to connect with anyone on the mode.
Amazing lack of improvement in a two year span
by Yuopjfn on 2018/10/01 04:19
I've played this game for at least two years and about a year ago, stopped playing. I actually wrote a review back then and it's nice to know that absolutely nothing has been done to fix the various issues I mentioned. To be brief, basically in order to win, you can only play 1-6 games maximum before the game cheats. You magically stop moving, the opponent magically gets super shots every two points, and you magically stop hitting ground strokes, it's unbelievable, not to mention unrealistic and frustrating. Also, the game glitches now so the game actually has gotten worse...such a shame because the design, look, and game mechanics were all nicely implemented.
Bug or cheat?
by Quitter123 on 2017/09/07 19:23
I've played this game for years. TT has always been hard to beat, but I find that using the game pad configuration I can usually hold my own. However, since you first upgrade these controls have become unreliable once I reach the second set only when I've won the first. The controls work only for the serve, but simply won't respond to tapping, won't light up. The control stick allows you to move your player but that's it. This happens with my iPhone and my iPod so I don't think it's a unique issue. To the developer: a response from you would be welcome.
Good concept, horrible execution
by jhobjett556778901 on 2018/03/14 04:06
This is a horrible game. First of all, it displays an ad even before it opens to the home screen. Second of all, it always pesters me to by the ad free version. Third, the game has no regard for physics or probability. I have tried to volley 120 mph serves and it actually worked! Lastly, it lags and crashes A LOT! Every time I go on multiplayer, the game crashes and I lose progress. In conclusion, the game is a great concept. However, the execution was poorly done and undermines the positive points. Whoever thought that Sega could make a good tennis game with proper physics (barely any Sega game need this) must be terribly disappointed. Shame on you Sega, I expected much better.
Great game but latest update...
by Kikonoi on 2019/03/19 13:50
This is definitely one of the best tennis games. I used to have it on Sony PSP. This is not the full version though and there is some lag sometimes so it’s not performing as well as on the PSP, but that said, it’s still very enjoyable. One important thing to developers, the latest update prevents the controls to work. It’s just impossible to play anymore. Please fix this ASAP.
Same Issue with frame rate. Do not update to V2.9
by Jerry Madness on 2018/11/19 03:56
After upgrade V 2.9, the frame rate is terrible on my iphone x. Had no problem with choppy frame on my iphone 5, iphone 6 with previous version. Please fix this issue on next version.

Annoying issues
by Std666 on 2018/06/14 23:01
I just downloaded this game and it does remind of the arcade game back in the day. For some reason,it doesn’t display full screen on the iPhone X and that means the buttons aren’t in the bottom right corner which is extremely annoying. And even more annoying is the Jurassic World ad that pops up as I serve and by the time it disappears I’ve lost the point,it’s happened several times and it’s the first day I got it.
The best tennis game but few people play it
by ask rating So many times on 2019/10/26 20:02
I don't know why this good tennis game online get 3.6 star, is the control? or characters? or something else? from what I think, I ve been playing this game from my iPhone5 to iPhone Pro. what do 2dollars can do in nowadays but purchase this wonderful game? SEGA please let more people to know this wonderful game !!!
Great game but too easy!
by towel119 on 2018/07/08 17:32
The structure for the game is great and I think the controls and gameplay is good, but after a little bit, it becomes very easy to beat even top ranked opponents. I suggest adding another level higher of difficulty or making the game multiplayer so people can play against each other rather than a computer.
Dodgy controls and buggy
by kimoki67 on 2019/12/14 04:37
The sound works, usually. I have to adjust it every so often as it quits, and that’s the only way to get it started. I never really had control of the player. Moving the control about 50% got about 5% movement. 55% got about 80% movement. No control adjustment would change this, and I got lucky enough to be in front of the ball about 10% of the time to hit it. Instead of removing the competition, I’m going to remove this game as a failed experiment.
Ad in paid version! Theron is a cheater!
by Asif Siddiqi on 2017/12/18 23:49
This game is a gem, but after recent update shows an ad in the start which makes no sense in a paid version especially from Sega. Also the game is highly tilted towards one of the built-in player. You can't beat him as he plays shots that you don't have in the game. The best option for us is to before him taking the winning shot close the app. The game then restarts itself. Justice Served!
Make another game
by Tyrell76 on 2020/01/23 15:30
I really like playing tennis games but I hope there will be another game but we can customize our play skin, look , what he or she wear, rackets I love the game really hope you make a another one soon just don’t put any of the ads in the game cause then the game will crash or I have to pause mid match to hear the sound affects.
Great.....but
by billbbo on 2019/11/14 21:49
This is such a great game! Best one out! Buuuuut, you guys need to fix it where the game pause on adds.. if the other is serving and a add comes up and plays for 30 seconds once it’s over the other computer has already won the match or scored the entire time the add plays. Quite annoying.. but still a great game!
Great Game But Needs An Update August ‘18
by Panda Cub Saver on 2018/08/17 18:48
This game is awesome. It’s definitely the best tennis game in the App Store. I enjoy playing the game; however, it needs bug fixes. When my friends text me, my control pad sometimes gets stuck in one position. Lol. Also, the game freezes or the app completely exits itself during the middle of gameplay.
Hey
by A pro at this Game on 2018/08/28 23:14
It’s a shame how U guys/Developers rigged the game just Because you make it all the way to the final match and you force close 1 billion times just so you can win that final time. The game is rigged, the game never freezes or force closes on my iPhone on any match besides the final matches. Don’t get me wrong, the game is awesome. But that doesn’t mean you guys rig the game just because it has Advertisements on it, I figured it out LOL
Fanastic
by Phayntom on 2017/08/11 00:45
Love this game. Ive played and tried every tennis game for iphone & this one i thought out did them all!! Would like to see more characters and even some female ones. This is a wonderful game which I strongly recommend for anybody who is a tennis fan!! There are no comparisons 👍
Best Sports Game
by Jason13151 on 2019/04/07 21:37
One of the best tennis games with excellent controls. It includes a training mode which I recommend to get the feel for the game. As you win matches you can earn points towards spending for the big league. Overall, worth it and very addictive.
Good game but...
by Masonk55 on 2018/02/19 06:39
I love this game very much, but for some reason when even I try to play music and play the game, the game stop my music from playing. I have found out it is the ad at the very start of the game that stops my music from playing, no matter how long the app is open.
Worse after updated
by Smoothengine on 2018/06/10 22:21
I loved to play this game. It was great up to the new update. The controls were horrible, pressed and didn't respond and you miss the ball. Super power shot and lob were a joke, one wasn't respond and the other just let the opponent hit the over head that you lose the point. I hope they will fix it soon. At the moment, I stop playing this game deal to the annoying controls.
INTERNET NECESSARY JUST TO OPEN THE APP!
by 1-Man on 2018/05/22 00:48
This app will not even function at all without an internet connection. STATE THAT UP FRONT! It is unacceptable for any app to pile on data and steal space free of charge on our devices with no option to clear cache because you are too remiss to think of that or too corrupt to allow it. And redesign your convoluted app icon. Keep it simple and iconic. -- re: developer response, upon purchase will more data be added to the app size?
Offline feature
by Sokha Nadal on 2018/03/16 14:59
The game is stuck after first match game won. When will you update the offline feature? I have been wait too longggg. Could not play Offline as mentioned. Please help to solve ASAP. I love the game but preferred to play offline
Fun game, but game constantly freezes!
by Guns n' Ships on 2018/08/15 01:10
This is one of the better tennis games on iOS, but I have lost count of how many times the game freezes going into ads and automatically restarts, causing me to lose all progress in my current match. It has happened multiple times AFTER I have won a match, which makes me have to completely restart the match over again.
Controls messed up on iPhone X
by sbaneel23 on 2019/03/22 17:01
I opened up this game after a while today and started up an exhibition match. I immediately noticed that the there were major issues with the controls as I could not hit the ball and use the joystick this time. This made it practically impossible to play the game and needs to be fixed so people can enjoy this wonderful game.
Its alright
by Roger McFederer on 2018/11/29 06:29
I enjoy playing the game but there are a lot if inaccuracies and it is frustrating at time. An example is when volleying, the guy tends to hit it like a grandma and just give away points or when hitting a “drop-shot” it just hits a really high lob.

Crashing
by MattScharf11 on 2017/10/10 21:38
I love this game, it’s seriously one of my favorite games ever. Lately, it won’t load and crashes. Wondering if the game jives with the lates iOS updates. Also, why aren’t there upgrades to equipment, clothing, etc. What else is there to to with 200,000,000 in prize money?
My favorite game
by "est" on 2018/02/07 07:02
This game is very fun! Only down sides are: a) purchasing the “remove ads” doesn’t actually remove all the ads, and b) sometimes the swipes glitch and cause you to miss the ball. Other than that, this game is so cool! Love the sound of the tennis ball.
Bad gameplay
by Rockero1157 on 2017/10/10 01:08
I hate the fact that this game doesn't save your progress. It's a good game, but it gets tiring leaving a match and just to return and it restarting and having to replay that match. I keep beating the #2 seed and it keeps restarting just before the end of the match. Done this to me several times. I give up on this game.
Great
by Milem123 on 2018/08/01 06:03
Honestly this game is probably just as good if not better than top spin 3 because you can actually move the character rather than it moving on it’s own..a bit more like real tennis..
Best tennis game so far
by Haonguyenkudo on 2017/10/15 06:58
Turns out that this is the best tennis game for mobile devices so far. I've been playing this game for years. However, it's sad that they don't update it. So, you will get bored if you play this for months.
Something is wrong
by Elyte01 on 2019/06/12 03:25
Been playing this game for a long time but all of a sudden the controls are not working correctly. I can not move the player and angle my shots when trying to hit the ball. I didn’t have an issue until the last update i guess. I have deleted the app and reinstated it with the same issues. Can anyone help?
Theron Tennil
by Bert Ernie on 2018/04/22 11:45
I don’t think I spelled the name correctly, but you will know when you play the character. The game will cheat over and over in his favor. One key to playing him is to exit the game right before the stats are available. Then hard exit the game and this should restart the game, but will take you back to the beginning of the match to replay opponent. I still deleted the game, because it is soooo frustrating!
More save points please
by Graymer58 on 2017/08/11 13:55
Best game play of any tennis game using button controls, but I really want to be able to play in shorter stints. Save after each set instead of only after a match would make it 5 stars!
Game glitch!
by Terris07 on 2019/05/12 21:39
Hi developers, suddenly the app’s controls (in any mode) are not responding. Only can hit ball but cannot choose a direction for it to go. I tried quitting and reopening the app and even deleted and reinstalled it (losing all the data and being forced to start from scratch) and NOTHING. Please fix! Thank you. (iOS 12.2).
Great game but needs an update
by Blackgrim23 on 2019/07/08 17:23
The game is great and I spent lots of hours in it, but now having my iPhone Xs the game screen is small compared to the new edge to edge display, this game needs to be updated to fit the new generation of iPhones.
Would give a 5, but
by Yo2222222222 on 2019/08/10 20:18
Great graphics, great concept, BUT the ads play over the first point when your opponent is serving, so you start every game that you are receiving down a point. You exit the ad just in time to see that you are down Love - 15...need to fix that. MAJOR FLAW
My Review on the game !
by 3B4A on 2019/04/05 09:11
I’m from Egypt , and i become a fan of this game ! The game is very good but with some adjustments , it can be fascinating ! I think you may introduce some features like changing costume in the world tour , adding some new tournaments , removing some bugs and reducing adds a little if you prefer . Thanks !
No multiplayer
by Kowalskii1 on 2019/10/17 23:46
If you download this game to play with friends its bad decision . Multiplayer is unplayable, hard to connect to room via Bluetooth, if you spend 15 minutes turning off and on your device and Bluetooth you might get lucky ... but for a second , first second of match starts it will crush or it will lag like north Korean internet ( ios 13.1.3 IPhone Xs max )
Repetitive
by Jincqx on 2019/03/28 13:46
It’s a fun game but repetitive. I have beaten Theron a dozen times and somehow he still rises in the ranks. Also, I can’t play anymore due to some glitch. I could serve, but my buttons won’t work when returning volleys all of a sudden. Put way too much time in to delete app and start all over again.
Controls broken since last update
by jmorr649 on 2019/03/20 01:47
After the recent update you can’t hit the ball and use the directional “pad” at the same time. This has been an awesome game until this update. This means you can’t aim the ball. You have to pick move or hit but can’t use both at the same time. Please fix this great game! Thank you.

Every since last update can’t play keeps crashing 😟😫 When is next update.
Make another game
by Tyrell76 on 2020/01/23 15:30
I really like playing tennis games but I hope there will be another game but we can customize our play skin, look , what he or she wear, rackets I love the game really hope you make a another one soon just don’t put any of the ads in the game cause then the game will crash or I have to pause mid match to hear the sound affects.
Ad-Free == Ad-Full && Absolutely Useless Multi-Player
by Seattle Rex on 2020/01/15 22:41
I bought it to play multi-player with my family. Big problem .. There is a replay after each point. After each point! Oh, and they take at least 2x longer than the live gameplay. We spend 80% of our playing time watching replays, or cutting to/from replays or cut scenes. This is not an exaggeration, and it’s beyond frustrating. You want to play tennis, but your continuity is broken, and you are relegated to being a spectator for most of time. And no, you cannot turn it off. Major show-stopper that ruins the experience completely. As if Is this weren’t bad enough, “ad-free” has Ads. It’s bizarre, since everyone knows what an ad is ... and everyone knows what ‘ad-free’ means. The dev simply re-defines the term ‘ad-free’ to mean ‘ads for our products only’ ... while still fully conceding that they are ... ready now ... Ads. Oh, and to be clear, there are still Ads for other products too. Imagine selling an ‘Ad-Free’ experience that takes people’s money, gives them ads, then saying ‘so, yeah, this is our interpretation of ad-free. We want the money you’re willing to part with when you think you won’t have ads, but we still want revenue from the ads. Fortunately, the App Store makes this effortless to put l off. Best of all, once you realize there are still ads, you already spent your money, and we’ve made all we can from you anyway, so feel free to call and register a complaint at 1-800-POUND-SAND” Mobile continues it’s full speed push to become a full-on scammer’s bazaar. It won’t last forever, so I guess they’re playing it for all it’s worth while they can. It’s too bad too, because otherwise it’s a good game.

A very poorly built game
by saissk on 2020/01/10 18:37
Totally not recommended.
Rubbish!
by Bilal YD on 2019/12/22 11:42
I was playing this game years ago! It was a revolutionary game with its graphics and fluidity back then! But today playing it on my XS Max it’s rubbish and lot of ads I was giving it a shot before buying the premium version but I end up removing it immediately! Dev teams could have updated and made it a great game! Unfortunately it’s a downgrade.
Dodgy controls and buggy
by kimoki67 on 2019/12/14 04:37
The sound works, usually. I have to adjust it every so often as it quits, and that’s the only way to get it started. I never really had control of the player. Moving the control about 50% got about 5% movement. 55% got about 80% movement. No control adjustment would change this, and I got lucky enough to be in front of the ball about 10% of the time to hit it. Instead of removing the competition, I’m going to remove this game as a failed experiment.
this game is fuqing trash
by HS6939 on 2019/12/04 04:37
this game is pathetic and fuqing trash
Great.....but
by billbbo on 2019/11/14 21:49
This is such a great game! Best one out! Buuuuut, you guys need to fix it where the game pause on adds.. if the other is serving and a add comes up and plays for 30 seconds once it’s over the other computer has already won the match or scored the entire time the add plays. Quite annoying.. but still a great game!
Cheat!!!
by amyetvkrkf on 2019/11/01 02:26
This game totally cheats... it slows your player down to allow the other opponent to score. It also stops your player from making moves and hitting the ball! This is becoming a poor app game!!!
The best tennis game but few people play it
by ask rating So many times on 2019/10/26 20:02
I don't know why this good tennis game online get 3.6 star, is the control? or characters? or something else? from what I think, I ve been playing this game from my iPhone5 to iPhone Pro. what do 2dollars can do in nowadays but purchase this wonderful game? SEGA please let more people to know this wonderful game !!!
No multiplayer
by Kowalskii1 on 2019/10/17 23:46
If you download this game to play with friends its bad decision . Multiplayer is unplayable, hard to connect to room via Bluetooth, if you spend 15 minutes turning off and on your device and Bluetooth you might get lucky ... but for a second , first second of match starts it will crush or it will lag like north Korean internet ( ios 13.1.3 IPhone Xs max )
MFI Support Iz BACK!!!
by MikeTwice86 on 2019/10/17 04:49
What more could you ask for? MFI on ipad 12.9, Who wants some?!?!
!!v3.0.6 Reintroduced Ads for PAID app users!!
by iPhoneIfIMust on 2019/10/16 21:37
v3.0.6 Update, iPhone 7 Plus, iOS 13.1.2 -Reintroduced Ads intermittently showing when opening the app for a PAID user - please remove! -Why is a PAID app user required to give consent for personal data to be shared with advertising partners for personalized Ads? I have already paid, my information should not be REQUIRED to be shared! Please remove! -Slight frame rate issues seem to be introduced with this update. This seems more noticeable in Low Power Mode (this was not an issue before). Not as bad as in some past updates. Mostly just annoying this time around. +CPU seems to be playing slightly more “fair”. +Still a top notch tennis game. Please fix the issues! Excellent tennis game. Virtua Tennis has always been an excellent tennis game ever since the Dreamcast. I will concede that the CPU opponents abilities surpass their stated ratings and there are some shots that naturally would not be possible (which can be frustrating in the heat of the moment), but it is an arcade game. After investing the time to learn the touch controls (Virtual Pad setting recommended), the CPU can be beaten with patients 80-90% of the time on the highest difficulty. I am glad that the advertisements that were still present after buying the game were finally removed (there are still ads, but now you are not FORCED to view them). I was quite irritated and disappointed when they were still there after purchasing the game. Lastly a couple of feature requests, I would like the option to use all of the players in the game. It would also be great to be able to see each players ratings on the player select screen as well as the opponents ratings prior to the match in Exhibition Mode just like the SPT World Tour mode.
Thanks for updates
by Chriss29 on 2019/10/15 11:24
Finally a game from SEGA that receives constant updates and bug fixes. Thanks developers for the support , great game !!
Little annoying
by Saif Al-Faris on 2019/10/10 06:22
Please make it compatible with iPhone 11
Why did you change it?
by Xis10shell1 on 2019/10/01 10:31
This was such a good game. I played this for hours on end back in 2014. But you've changed the game, the way you control/hit the shots, and it's awful. Before, it was similar to playing actual tennis. Now, you have to select a stroke from an icon on the screen. It's really bad. Please change it back.
Not that bad
by Stezlic on 2019/09/28 08:58
The game’s good but they don’t update and in terms of multiplayer it’s moderate need to fix glitches
Would give a 5, but
by Yo2222222222 on 2019/08/10 20:18
Great graphics, great concept, BUT the ads play over the first point when your opponent is serving, so you start every game that you are receiving down a point. You exit the ad just in time to see that you are down Love - 15...need to fix that. MAJOR FLAW
The free 15
by Supernova777 on 2019/08/06 17:04
The Opponent team always get a free 15 when I go into Ad is so annoying can you please fix your game or can you please make us turn off our Wi-Fi and make us have no ads😡😡😡😡😡😡
Demasiado
by ajgsknedk on 2019/07/13 23:08
Mucha publicidad y cuando termina la publicidad el juego continúa sin audio muy mal
Good but often crashes on multi-player
by Danstone77 on 2019/07/11 07:47
This is a great game, considering the speed, graphics and playability being on an iPad. It also has Bluetooth multiplayer which is great but me and my son haven’t managed to complete a full match without it freezing up. Shame, as it has loads of potential. The instant replays are a bit annoying, as is the slow-mo hit which basically makes it impossible to return, but a solid 3.5/5 * for now.
Great game but needs an update
by Blackgrim23 on 2019/07/08 17:23
The game is great and I spent lots of hours in it, but now having my iPhone Xs the game screen is small compared to the new edge to edge display, this game needs to be updated to fit the new generation of iPhones.
Thank you
by bobdougy on 2019/06/21 09:40
Thanks for the long awaited fix!
They fixed it
by R3v!ewer on 2019/06/20 03:55
The joystick control is now working again. Glad to see it though it took months.
MFi controller no longer works
by GiggityQuandry on 2019/06/19 09:37
Update 6/19/19: Steelseries Nimbus MFi controller analog sticks no longer work with this game. Directional pad does work, however I miss the analog stick control. Same situation with Steelseries Stratus. Running on iPad Pro 10.5, iOS 12.3.1. Both of those controller's analog sticks used to work correctly in iOS 11, please update for iOS 12.X+
Glitchiest game ever
by drock23888765 on 2019/06/19 03:25
I don’t know how this game got clearance to be on the App Store none of the buttons work after I serve lol don’t waste your time
Piece of Sh@:
by Rpf4lv on 2019/06/14 04:08
The game would be great if it wasn’t rig so you can’t get past a certain point. It’s always the same...I can win 3 straight games in a set and then the game changes and you can’t win another game. The other player never misses no matter how good the shot is. I’ve deleted the game.
Something is wrong
by Elyte01 on 2019/06/12 03:25
Been playing this game for a long time but all of a sudden the controls are not working correctly. I can not move the player and angle my shots when trying to hit the ball. I didn’t have an issue until the last update i guess. I have deleted the app and reinstated it with the same issues. Can anyone help?
Buggy !
by HarryPilote on 2019/06/10 10:53
Ever since the new update It’s not able to hit the ball and choose the directions anymore. All you can do is return the ball in the center of the field. So annoying!!
Frame rate is terrible on iPhone XS
by hiandel on 2019/06/08 14:02
The new version frame rate is very terrible on my new iPhone XS, but the pervious version frame rate is perfect on my iPhone 6s.please fix it and release new version.thanks!
5 star quality
by MoMo Bill on 2019/06/06 07:39
Basically identical to the console version, a real quality game. Totally recommend it. Thanks, SEGA.
Lagging
by SundayDuffer on 2019/06/02 23:01
Ive perfected this game on android, undefeated. Just bought the 12.9 latest ipad pro 3rd gen, and this version is just super laggy...and i cant activate the supershot..i use swipe format. Please fix.
Fun but limited
by Theron's worst enemy on 2019/05/25 19:35
My game keeps freezing and I can’t control the angle of the ball any more I had $34million in the bank and after not playing for a while I have $500k idk what’s that about. I uninstalled and installed and restarted my iPad but nothing seemed to changed. I hope this gets fixed
I got so many bug on my iphone 6s
by Andrewslarsoon on 2019/05/24 17:00
I really want to play this game 🙏 please update
Fix this
by Exige* on 2019/05/13 18:10
Ever since an update, you can’t move and hit at the same time, meaning that two fingers can’t touch it at the same time.
Game glitch!
by Terris07 on 2019/05/12 21:39
Hi developers, suddenly the app’s controls (in any mode) are not responding. Only can hit ball but cannot choose a direction for it to go. I tried quitting and reopening the app and even deleted and reinstalled it (losing all the data and being forced to start from scratch) and NOTHING. Please fix! Thank you. (iOS 12.2).
Too many glitches
by Nonickname00098538 on 2019/05/12 03:37
Too many glitches. Controls become unresponsive at times. Play begins during the ads. A shame because it could be a good one, but it is unplayable as it is
Recent update
by Meesamali on 2019/05/08 20:08
Hi, recent update has messed up the game completely. None of the buttons work while holding joystick on left,during the game. Can’t hit the ball or nothing.i am using ipad pro 11 inch. Please fix it. Otherwise game is useless. It was working fine before the update.
Controls are terrible
by Kyle Sciacca on 2019/05/06 13:11
Good look playing this without a joystick
Can’t aim shots
by AleLazzati on 2019/05/05 18:42
After about the first game I can no longer aim where my shots go. They just go straight down the middle and it takes forever to finish the match.
Fix the controls already!
by mgg8080 on 2019/04/24 23:53
Read the room, fellas...serve is not working, stroke controls are not responding. Your last update destroyed the game. Revert to the prior version if nothing else is possible.
Unplayable
by Kdj1005 on 2019/04/24 23:21
The most recent update makes the game unplayable. Thanks a lot developers. Such a waste. Was a pretty good game too.
This Is The Best Game Of Tennis, But I Need Update
by Mgdjxk on 2019/04/24 23:09
Please Developers of This Game Need A Update To My IPhone XS Max!! Please This Game Is Amazing!! I Loved Play Tennis!! Thanks Anticipated.
Don’t work on iOS 11 or higher
by Buiiiiico on 2019/04/15 17:03
Unfortunately don’t work anymore. Multitouch don’t work, impossible to play. Or you run, or you hit. Chame.
Don’t buy the ad-free version
by Big Thief on 2019/04/14 15:57
Displays ads, even after paying for the ad-free version.
need improvement!!
by FCBS41 on 2019/04/14 01:41
sometimes no reaction from the bottons and really careless on lots of parts sometimes even the score is not correct! of course as a free game there are too many ads !
Falls flat, disappointing
by kristinleiiigh on 2019/04/12 06:00
I love Sega, and grew up playing Sonic. However, this game is the biggest disappointment. Not only are the controls difficult but there’s not much you can do to influence power or trajectory. The graphics aren’t great, but if the controls were better it wouldn’t matter. In fact, the graphics on the old sega console are better than the graphics on this game. The worst thing by far is the fact there is not a single female character you can choose from. There might be an unlockable female character, but if there is I didn’t see it. There’s probably 10 different male characters you can choose from, so why not one woman? Many of the greatest tennis players are women. Most people don’t even know of a tennis player that isn’t Serena, Venus, or Maria. If you’re looking for a tennis game that allows you to have more control over your character, I highly suggest ultimate tennis. Not only is the game better, but they actually have an even amount of male and female characters. I’m in no way a “modern feminist”, but in 2019 you would think women would be represented as much as men, especially in a game that revolves around a sport who gets the majority of its publicity from its female athletes.
Fix does not work
by Tengol on 2019/04/12 02:02
Can no longer serve and hit or run. Game is now horrible.
Great fun game!! Just one tiny glitch.
by YaraWalker on 2019/04/11 10:16
Won't launch on IOS 9.3.5 after update
Update broke it
by Big Dawg 98 on 2019/04/10 01:03
The strawberries are rotten, the last update made the controls unresponsive
Best Sports Game
by Jason13151 on 2019/04/07 21:37
One of the best tennis games with excellent controls. It includes a training mode which I recommend to get the feel for the game. As you win matches you can earn points towards spending for the big league. Overall, worth it and very addictive.
Female characters
by Twix TG on 2019/04/07 08:26
This game needs to be more diverse. They should have female characters. Also it keeps playing ads every match.
PLEASE FIX CONTROLS
by nairbel on 2019/04/06 05:35
Please fix controls!!!!
My Review on the game !
by 3B4A on 2019/04/05 09:11
I’m from Egypt , and i become a fan of this game ! The game is very good but with some adjustments , it can be fascinating ! I think you may introduce some features like changing costume in the world tour , adding some new tournaments , removing some bugs and reducing adds a little if you prefer . Thanks !
Cannot press hit button while run. Please fix.
by PhoenizBeamSuke on 2019/04/02 09:18
Cannot press hit button while run. Please fix.
Horrible control
by Rebelforce08 on 2019/04/02 02:47
The controls took a turn for the worse. What happened? Can’t hit the ball and move at the same time anymore. Unable to move forward and hit the ball. Very disappointed. Game is unplayable now.
Can’t restore my purchase
by xyliu117 on 2019/03/30 03:40
I bought this game years ago. And recently I decided to download it again and see if there’s something new. To my disappointment, the only ‘new’ stuff is the ads. And to make things worse, I can’t restore my purchase to remove the ads. So long Virtual Tennis. Thanks for ruining my good memories of you.
Recent update causing issues
by tasman50 on 2019/03/29 17:28
The recent update makes this unplayable. The controls do not work as they did. I’ve been playing this a long time and was able to defeat anyone but now I can’t even win 1 game against the worst.
Repetitive
by Jincqx on 2019/03/28 13:46
It’s a fun game but repetitive. I have beaten Theron a dozen times and somehow he still rises in the ranks. Also, I can’t play anymore due to some glitch. I could serve, but my buttons won’t work when returning volleys all of a sudden. Put way too much time in to delete app and start all over again.
Controls do not work
by VSVieira on 2019/03/26 23:49
Since the latest update the controls no longer work properly. Used to be a great game.
Nimbus Controls Broken
by Z32Driver on 2019/03/24 06:01
I used to use my SteelSeries Nimbus and it worked perfectly. Now, the analog stick doesn’t work. Only the d pad is working. Please fix!
What is going on!
by QueensReviewer on 2019/03/22 21:49
Loved this app but it hasn’t been working like it should all week. Can’t control player or shots like before. Getting ready to delete and move on. Disappointed’
Controls messed up on iPhone X
by sbaneel23 on 2019/03/22 17:01
I opened up this game after a while today and started up an exhibition match. I immediately noticed that the there were major issues with the controls as I could not hit the ball and use the joystick this time. This made it practically impossible to play the game and needs to be fixed so people can enjoy this wonderful game.
This game was good until the update
by Amillard01 on 2019/03/22 03:40
This game was my go-to game on my phone when I had nothing to do and a full battery. It was smooth and honestly very similar to the original. Unfortunately, after a large update a number of months ago, I lost my no ads purchase, the game is constantly frame-dropping(which shouldn’t be a problem as I have an iPhone X) and the controls sometimes don’t work at all. I don’t know what the developers were thinking when they changed this game, but everything that was done, in my opinion, was done for the worse. Please fix these issues and stop worrying about making money on ads.
Update buggy as well. Better sound, but power play doesn’t work!
by Fwartypants on 2019/03/21 05:43
Please fix!
Ut oh 2.9.3 won't run
by csericmy on 2019/03/21 04:56
Just upgraded IPad and it won't run. Tap to open, it flashes and crashes. Please fix asap
Please fix bug after latest update
by Ebakertennis on 2019/03/21 02:59
After the most recent (update 3/19/19) you cannot press more than one button at a time. In other words, you cannot aim while holding the shot type buttons which is very problematic. Hopefully it was not intentional. If so, it took my 5 star rating to a 1 star in terms of playability and overall enjoyment of the game.
Controls broken since last update
by jmorr649 on 2019/03/20 01:47
After the recent update you can’t hit the ball and use the directional “pad” at the same time. This has been an awesome game until this update. This means you can’t aim the ball. You have to pick move or hit but can’t use both at the same time. Please fix this great game! Thank you.
Broken
by KvngKkimg on 2019/03/19 23:16
Since the new update, I can’t hold down the hit button while I move. I have to move my character to the ball and then I have to let go of my left finger and then I could push the hit button. I’ll def put a 5 stars if u fix it. This is one of my favorite games
Great game but latest update...
by Kikonoi on 2019/03/19 13:50
This is definitely one of the best tennis games. I used to have it on Sony PSP. This is not the full version though and there is some lag sometimes so it’s not performing as well as on the PSP, but that said, it’s still very enjoyable. One important thing to developers, the latest update prevents the controls to work. It’s just impossible to play anymore. Please fix this ASAP.
Bad bug
by Termage on 2019/03/19 12:18
Latest update disables hitting while moving when using any of the virtual pads. Basically unplayable at the moment.
Application Crashes
by Hassan Nasir on 2019/03/19 04:05
Hi, i have an ipad 2 with ios version 9.3.5. Ever since i have downloaded the latest update the application is crashing. Please advice how this can be fixed because i am unable to play this game. Thanks.
Update has made the game unplayable
by TPatrickVan on 2019/03/18 18:12
This most resent update has made it so you cannot press a button while controlling movement with any of the controller options like arcade Please fix this ASAP as I am addicted to this game And I think we should add more levels to make the game even harder
This game is trash
by TevM91 on 2019/03/16 06:53
This game is trash and rigged. I’m number 1 ranked, I have over 10 million dollars or coins (whatever they are) I’ve beaten Theron Tenneil tons of times. But this game is so rigged it’s blatant. So I deleted the app
Terrible
by RezaTbi on 2019/03/14 16:50
Make it compatible with iPhone X
BGM problems
by djkchdhc on 2019/02/27 16:49
After updating. When the player servings, it becomes so bad, not fluently at all. And after the point, then music suddenly gone, it’s so not cool. Please repair it asap!
Worst tennis game I have ever played
by wxs116 on 2019/02/24 00:54
Worst tennis game I have ever played. The opponent becomes impossible to beat once you reach the final. This game is so rigged
No longer compatible ?
by MrMac232 on 2019/02/08 06:31
For the longest my gamesir controller was working flawlessly with this game as of last update it’s no longer recognized
Love this game.!!
by Myankee286 on 2019/01/26 06:27
I really wish they would come out with a new virtual tennis game and updated version but keep everything the same. With the real players and everything. But this is the best time is game ever I’m playing it for years. Since it came out. I just ask invoice for a new updated version. Sorry had to update my review I’m lowering it to Styers because I have a iPhone 7 Plus it’s been glitching during the game it freezes and you can’t hear the judges voice anymore they don’t tell you the score and it’s glitching and I can’t serve the ball it’s like freezing. So I hat I uninstalled and then reinstalled it and it still doing it. Please updated and correct this problem. I’ll go back to four stores.
Advertising not allow you play!!!
by Tennis was my passion on 2019/01/18 05:57
Adv not allow you play. You lose points because you will see the adv then the opponent serve the ball. This is crazy...
Fun then not so fun
by Snaker60543 on 2019/01/13 22:12
Very poor navigation controls leads to frustrating game against top opponents Game is fun with good graphics but outdated Would be great for sega to update it
controller support is gone!!!
by the truth 1990 on 2019/01/08 05:39
Hi developers,Can you bring back MFI controller support??? I loved this game but it’s too frustrating with touch controls! Why did you do this? Makes me want to delete this awesome game to save space.
Update
by Mr.vip plus albayati gold 128 on 2018/12/20 19:41
Please app update with iphone XS MAX because don’t work manually please update please update thank you
Love the game
by PopeyeBHB on 2018/12/15 04:48
Overall my 2nd fav game to play. I’ve tried other tennis games and this is by far the best one in my opinion.My game difficulty is hard and the opponents give you a run for your $ especially the #1 seed.Only problem is it glitches as you serve and also the audio is pretty bad at times. It fades in and out or completely shuts off during gameplay.Would love to be able to do more with the players like change attire or rackets maybe and have a few more options on players you can play with maybe even create your own player.Other than that ✌️thumbs up. Need this on ps4🎮
No more Mfi support
by Brian528 on 2018/12/03 18:09
WAS best tennis game on ios (if not best sports game). Now, with no mfi support (Nimbus controller), it's unplayable. Waiting for an update.
Its alright
by Roger McFederer on 2018/11/29 06:29
I enjoy playing the game but there are a lot if inaccuracies and it is frustrating at time. An example is when volleying, the guy tends to hit it like a grandma and just give away points or when hitting a “drop-shot” it just hits a really high lob. Also another issue is that it doesn’t support the IPhone X which would’ve looked amazing. Overall the game is playable but have very bad mechanics.
Was great!
by MabeMonster on 2018/11/21 02:39
This was the best tennis app period until the last update now the music and graphics are not smooth even on iPhonex. This just started with the ads update at Halloween. Please fix this!!!
Same Issue with frame rate. Do not update to V2.9
by Jerry Madness on 2018/11/19 03:56
After upgrade V 2.9, the frame rate is terrible on my iphone x. Had no problem with choppy frame on my iphone 5, iphone 6 with previous version. Please fix this issue on next version. This is my favorite tennis game and play everyday during break but this terrible frame rate made me upset. There is no way to restore back to older version.
Latest update installed: poor frame rate
by rsturner2002 on 2018/11/11 21:28
Please fix the frame rate lag/jitters from this latest update. Unplayable now.
Bug game
by Kowalski7 on 2018/11/04 06:47
After update recently Too many bug you made Is this game what your testing stuff? Time goes that makes more bug What a crazy

The game now lags ans stutters after the recent update. Please fix it.
Great until the recent update
by dejamike on 2018/11/01 02:29
I am not able to use my physical game controller after the update. Please fix it ASAP.
Please fix lag!

After 10 month ,awful update and add advertisment 😏😏
Good but very flawed
by Rex36 on 2018/10/25 01:36
This game can be highly addictive and very fun... until you realize two things: 1) Theron Tenniel has been given a HUGE advantage by the developers. He is almost comically hard to beat, which can feel good when you outwit him and reach the top levels, but very frustrating when he goes on a 9 win tear against you by making shots that your player can’t even begin to achieve. It’s just uncanny how fast he can reach the opposite side of the court when you slam a shot straight to the corner. Come on Sega, I get that you had to make him THE GUY, but it’s almost silly how easily he defies physics. 2) You’ll be pestered to buy the “ad free” version for $2.99. When you finally break down and do it, you’ll be pestered by ads for other Sega games that don’t allow you to close them out without clicking them which only then opens another box to download said game. Shame on you Sega. I’m not downloading anymore of your games thanks to this little con.
Horrendous control
by Giggling junkie on 2018/10/17 07:51
On iPhone 7 seems like no one can win. Controls are very unresponsive. I’m glad I didn’t pay for the full version.
Free and fun
by cad80_99 on 2017/08/15 17:00
I enjoy this game and it's free. A few gripes I have. If exit game via home button it seems to not be hit and miss for saving. So at time will have to replay the match. Also seems to not always register the swipe motion. Will swipe down and it will not do the correct shot. Or I will swipe up and instead my player will just run to the last spot I touched. Also many times player will hit ball out of bounds. Many times I am in the middle of court, hit to me and I will hit to the side and computer player is on opposite side and will go wide and out of bounds. But it's free and overall still fun to play.
Good but needs work
by Das AutoVW on 2018/06/18 17:22
First, for those of you having issues beating Theron Tenniele, here's a tip, don't hit to his forehand...at all. I only hit to his forehand if it's going to be a winner, otherwise I hit EVERYTHING to his backhand. I've been playing this game for some time now, and It's definitely one of the better tennis games for iPad. I use the on screen buttons for controls, but find often during a match that the buttons are way too small. I end up pressing the space between the buttons quite often. Would be awesome if those were scaleable so we could make them bigger or smaller. Also as some others have pointed out, it's almost comical how the game works when playing Theron Tenniele. It never fails, first set I beat him 6-0, and then in the second set I'm up 4-0 or 5-0 and then the game gets erratic..my player doesn't hit the ball as hard anymore, he runs erratically around the court, doesn't hit the ball at all or some other odd behavior. He usually wins 2, 3, 4 or 5 games in a row because of this before I weather the storm. I always know around game 4 of the second set, I will have a fight my hands because getting to and hitting the ball becomes an obstacle, and it has nothing to do with the way the Theron Tenniele is playing. If the player is going to beat me, let the player beat me, don't make my player glitch, so now I have to fight the software and the player. Other than that, the game is good.

Better tennis game but the Theron glitch spoils it
by popeyedoyle414 on 2018/08/12 04:20
Game is pretty decent in terms of tennis gameplay. Mechanics feel right. However, Theron Thinnel is the player in the game that’s unbeatable thanks to a designed Developer glitch. Once you’ve beaten most of the tournaments, you’ll face TT at every final. He’ll cheat and beat you every time. Gotta use some skill and luck. Don’t get me started on the lack of customization for tennis gear and tennis courts. It’s truly lacking these sort after features by fans of this game. You’ll play this game for about month. Then you’ll eventually delete it because it gets repetitive, boring, and tiring because of TT’s cheating. Download, play it, but don’t set high hopes. You’ll be disappointed. This is just a commuter game. You play this on the train, bus, or for downtime. That’s it!
Fun But Repetitive
by dougieritch on 2017/09/21 03:51
This is the best tennis game on the iPhone. The graphics are great and the playability is good but repetitive. Sega could add so much to the game if they would model it after Tiger Woods Golf. Meaning allowing your player to build skills, buy new equipment and apparel, etc. A few complaints: 1) I purchased the game and continue to receive one advertisement for another Sega game while it loads. No big deal but many times when I attempt to exit out of the ad it takes me to the store to buy it where I have to exit out of the store and return to the game. 2) I have become very frustrated with the inability to hit winners at the net. What would be a net winner in any real tennis game require 2-3 net shots to win the point. 3) Theron Tenniel is ridiculous and the game blatantly cheats in his favor. I have beaten him at the top level (530,000) but it becomes frustrating when he constantly dives for game winners, gets to balls no one else in the game can reach, and rarely are balls ever called out on him. Not to mention all you get for beating him is money. I finally became so frustrated with the unfair play I deleted the game off my phone. It just wasn't worth my time and aggravation.
Falls flat, disappointing
by kristinleiiigh on 2019/04/12 06:00
I love Sega, and grew up playing Sonic. However, this game is the biggest disappointment. Not only are the controls difficult but there’s not much you can do to influence power or trajectory. The graphics aren’t great, but if the controls were better it wouldn’t matter. In fact, the graphics on the old sega console are better than the graphics on this game. The worst thing by far is the fact there is not a single female character you can choose from. There might be an unlockable female character, but if there is I didn’t see it. There’s probably 10 different male characters you can choose from, so why not one woman? Many of the greatest tennis players are women. Most people don’t even know of a tennis player that isn’t Serena, Venus, or Maria. If you’re looking for a tennis game that allows you to have more control over your character, I highly suggest ultimate tennis. Not only is the game better, but they actually have an even amount of male and female characters. I’m in no way a “modern feminist”, but in 2019 you would think women would be represented as much as men, especially in a game that revolves around a sport who gets the majority of its publicity from its female athletes.
Great game with a few problems
by Dude that Reviewed on 2017/11/23 19:43
I love the game, but I have a few issues. First, the characters are pretty slow, and when they retrieve a shot, they take way too long to recover. I wish the characters could slide like the pros do, or at least on clay. Second, I would like to be able to unlock the faster indoor courts. Finally, I, and probably many other people as well, want to be able to choose any character from the fifty some in the game to play as it choose for story mode. I especially would like to look like Theron Tenniel and have his strokes. Other than that, the game is fine.
Good but often crashes on multi-player
by Danstone77 on 2019/07/11 07:47
This is a great game, considering the speed, graphics and playability being on an iPad. It also has Bluetooth multiplayer which is great but me and my son haven’t managed to complete a full match without it freezing up. Shame, as it has loads of potential. The instant replays are a bit annoying, as is the slow-mo hit which basically makes it impossible to return, but a solid 3.5/5 * for now.
Love this game.!!

This game was good until the update
by Amillard01 on 2019/03/22 03:40
This game was my go-to game on my phone when I had nothing to do and a full battery. It was smooth and honestly very similar to the original. Unfortunately, after a large update a number of months ago, I lost my no ads purchase, the game is constantly frame-dropping(which shouldn’t be a problem as I have an iPhone X) and the controls sometimes don’t work at all. I don’t know what the developers were thinking when they changed this game, but everything that was done, in my opinion, was done for the worse. Please fix these issues and stop worrying about making money on ads.
Ok Game
by ¡Jk! on 2018/06/01 14:06
Overall this is one of the better tennis games in the app store. The gameplay and mechanics aren’t too bad. However I agree with most people here in that there isn’t much to do in game. The career mode is very repetitive as the only reward for winning matches is in-game currency, which can only be used for to enter other tournaments. There is no stat system for player skills and no way to upgrade your personal player. Along with this, there are no customization options for your player. The online multiplayer is also bit suspect. I have yet to connect with anyone on the mode.
Amazing lack of improvement in a two year span
by Yuopjfn on 2018/10/01 04:19
I've played this game for at least two years and about a year ago, stopped playing. I actually wrote a review back then and it's nice to know that absolutely nothing has been done to fix the various issues I mentioned. To be brief, basically in order to win, you can only play 1-6 games maximum before the game cheats. You magically stop moving, the opponent magically gets super shots every two points, and you magically stop hitting ground strokes, it's unbelievable, not to mention unrealistic and frustrating. Also, the game glitches now so the game actually has gotten worse...such a shame because the design, look, and game mechanics were all nicely implemented.
Bug or cheat?
by Quitter123 on 2017/09/07 19:23
I've played this game for years. TT has always been hard to beat, but I find that using the game pad configuration I can usually hold my own. However, since you first upgrade these controls have become unreliable once I reach the second set only when I've won the first. The controls work only for the serve, but simply won't respond to tapping, won't light up. The control stick allows you to move your player but that's it. This happens with my iPhone and my iPod so I don't think it's a unique issue. To the developer: a response from you would be welcome.
Good concept, horrible execution
by jhobjett556778901 on 2018/03/14 04:06
This is a horrible game. First of all, it displays an ad even before it opens to the home screen. Second of all, it always pesters me to by the ad free version. Third, the game has no regard for physics or probability. I have tried to volley 120 mph serves and it actually worked! Lastly, it lags and crashes A LOT! Every time I go on multiplayer, the game crashes and I lose progress. In conclusion, the game is a great concept. However, the execution was poorly done and undermines the positive points. Whoever thought that Sega could make a good tennis game with proper physics (barely any Sega game need this) must be terribly disappointed. Shame on you Sega, I expected much better.
Great game but latest update...
by Kikonoi on 2019/03/19 13:50
This is definitely one of the best tennis games. I used to have it on Sony PSP. This is not the full version though and there is some lag sometimes so it’s not performing as well as on the PSP, but that said, it’s still very enjoyable. One important thing to developers, the latest update prevents the controls to work. It’s just impossible to play anymore. Please fix this ASAP.
Same Issue with frame rate. Do not update to V2.9
by Jerry Madness on 2018/11/19 03:56

Annoying issues
by Std666 on 2018/06/14 23:01
I just downloaded this game and it does remind of the arcade game back in the day. For some reason,it doesn’t display full screen on the iPhone X and that means the buttons aren’t in the bottom right corner which is extremely annoying. And even more annoying is the Jurassic World ad that pops up as I serve and by the time it disappears I’ve lost the point,it’s happened several times and it’s the first day I got it.
The best tennis game but few people play it
by ask rating So many times on 2019/10/26 20:02
I don't know why this good tennis game online get 3.6 star, is the control? or characters? or something else? from what I think, I ve been playing this game from my iPhone5 to iPhone Pro. what do 2dollars can do in nowadays but purchase this wonderful game? SEGA please let more people to know this wonderful game !!!
Great game but too easy!
by towel119 on 2018/07/08 17:32
The structure for the game is great and I think the controls and gameplay is good, but after a little bit, it becomes very easy to beat even top ranked opponents. I suggest adding another level higher of difficulty or making the game multiplayer so people can play against each other rather than a computer.
Dodgy controls and buggy
by kimoki67 on 2019/12/14 04:37
The sound works, usually. I have to adjust it every so often as it quits, and that’s the only way to get it started. I never really had control of the player. Moving the control about 50% got about 5% movement. 55% got about 80% movement. No control adjustment would change this, and I got lucky enough to be in front of the ball about 10% of the time to hit it. Instead of removing the competition, I’m going to remove this game as a failed experiment.
Ad in paid version! Theron is a cheater!
by Asif Siddiqi on 2017/12/18 23:49
This game is a gem, but after recent update shows an ad in the start which makes no sense in a paid version especially from Sega. Also the game is highly tilted towards one of the built-in player. You can't beat him as he plays shots that you don't have in the game. The best option for us is to before him taking the winning shot close the app. The game then restarts itself. Justice Served!
Make another game
by Tyrell76 on 2020/01/23 15:30
I really like playing tennis games but I hope there will be another game but we can customize our play skin, look , what he or she wear, rackets I love the game really hope you make a another one soon just don’t put any of the ads in the game cause then the game will crash or I have to pause mid match to hear the sound affects.
Great.....but
by billbbo on 2019/11/14 21:49
This is such a great game! Best one out! Buuuuut, you guys need to fix it where the game pause on adds.. if the other is serving and a add comes up and plays for 30 seconds once it’s over the other computer has already won the match or scored the entire time the add plays. Quite annoying.. but still a great game!
Great Game But Needs An Update August ‘18
by Panda Cub Saver on 2018/08/17 18:48
This game is awesome. It’s definitely the best tennis game in the App Store. I enjoy playing the game; however, it needs bug fixes. When my friends text me, my control pad sometimes gets stuck in one position. Lol. Also, the game freezes or the app completely exits itself during the middle of gameplay.
Hey
by A pro at this Game on 2018/08/28 23:14
It’s a shame how U guys/Developers rigged the game just Because you make it all the way to the final match and you force close 1 billion times just so you can win that final time. The game is rigged, the game never freezes or force closes on my iPhone on any match besides the final matches. Don’t get me wrong, the game is awesome. But that doesn’t mean you guys rig the game just because it has Advertisements on it, I figured it out LOL
Fanastic
by Phayntom on 2017/08/11 00:45
Love this game. Ive played and tried every tennis game for iphone & this one i thought out did them all!! Would like to see more characters and even some female ones. This is a wonderful game which I strongly recommend for anybody who is a tennis fan!! There are no comparisons 👍
Best Sports Game
by Jason13151 on 2019/04/07 21:37
One of the best tennis games with excellent controls. It includes a training mode which I recommend to get the feel for the game. As you win matches you can earn points towards spending for the big league. Overall, worth it and very addictive.
Good game but...
by Masonk55 on 2018/02/19 06:39
I love this game very much, but for some reason when even I try to play music and play the game, the game stop my music from playing. I have found out it is the ad at the very start of the game that stops my music from playing, no matter how long the app is open.
Worse after updated
by Smoothengine on 2018/06/10 22:21
I loved to play this game. It was great up to the new update. The controls were horrible, pressed and didn't respond and you miss the ball. Super power shot and lob were a joke, one wasn't respond and the other just let the opponent hit the over head that you lose the point. I hope they will fix it soon. At the moment, I stop playing this game deal to the annoying controls.
INTERNET NECESSARY JUST TO OPEN THE APP!
by 1-Man on 2018/05/22 00:48
This app will not even function at all without an internet connection. STATE THAT UP FRONT! It is unacceptable for any app to pile on data and steal space free of charge on our devices with no option to clear cache because you are too remiss to think of that or too corrupt to allow it. And redesign your convoluted app icon. Keep it simple and iconic. -- re: developer response, upon purchase will more data be added to the app size?
Offline feature
by Sokha Nadal on 2018/03/16 14:59
The game is stuck after first match game won. When will you update the offline feature? I have been wait too longggg. Could not play Offline as mentioned. Please help to solve ASAP. I love the game but preferred to play offline
Fun game, but game constantly freezes!
by Guns n' Ships on 2018/08/15 01:10
This is one of the better tennis games on iOS, but I have lost count of how many times the game freezes going into ads and automatically restarts, causing me to lose all progress in my current match. It has happened multiple times AFTER I have won a match, which makes me have to completely restart the match over again.
Controls messed up on iPhone X
by sbaneel23 on 2019/03/22 17:01
I opened up this game after a while today and started up an exhibition match. I immediately noticed that the there were major issues with the controls as I could not hit the ball and use the joystick this time. This made it practically impossible to play the game and needs to be fixed so people can enjoy this wonderful game.
Its alright
by Roger McFederer on 2018/11/29 06:29
I enjoy playing the game but there are a lot if inaccuracies and it is frustrating at time. An example is when volleying, the guy tends to hit it like a grandma and just give away points or when hitting a “drop-shot” it just hits a really high lob. Also another issue is that it doesn’t support the IPhone X which would’ve looked amazing. Overall the game is playable but have very bad mechanics.
Crashing
by MattScharf11 on 2017/10/10 21:38
I love this game, it’s seriously one of my favorite games ever. Lately, it won’t load and crashes. Wondering if the game jives with the lates iOS updates. Also, why aren’t there upgrades to equipment, clothing, etc. What else is there to to with 200,000,000 in prize money?
My favorite game
by "est" on 2018/02/07 07:02
This game is very fun! Only down sides are: a) purchasing the “remove ads” doesn’t actually remove all the ads, and b) sometimes the swipes glitch and cause you to miss the ball. Other than that, this game is so cool! Love the sound of the tennis ball.
Bad gameplay
by Rockero1157 on 2017/10/10 01:08
I hate the fact that this game doesn't save your progress. It's a good game, but it gets tiring leaving a match and just to return and it restarting and having to replay that match. I keep beating the #2 seed and it keeps restarting just before the end of the match. Done this to me several times. I give up on this game.
Great
by Milem123 on 2018/08/01 06:03
Honestly this game is probably just as good if not better than top spin 3 because you can actually move the character rather than it moving on it’s own..a bit more like real tennis..
Best tennis game so far
by Haonguyenkudo on 2017/10/15 06:58
Turns out that this is the best tennis game for mobile devices so far. I've been playing this game for years. However, it's sad that they don't update it. So, you will get bored if you play this for months.
Something is wrong
by Elyte01 on 2019/06/12 03:25
Been playing this game for a long time but all of a sudden the controls are not working correctly. I can not move the player and angle my shots when trying to hit the ball. I didn’t have an issue until the last update i guess. I have deleted the app and reinstated it with the same issues. Can anyone help?
Theron Tennil
by Bert Ernie on 2018/04/22 11:45
I don’t think I spelled the name correctly, but you will know when you play the character. The game will cheat over and over in his favor. One key to playing him is to exit the game right before the stats are available. Then hard exit the game and this should restart the game, but will take you back to the beginning of the match to replay opponent. I still deleted the game, because it is soooo frustrating!
More save points please
by Graymer58 on 2017/08/11 13:55
Best game play of any tennis game using button controls, but I really want to be able to play in shorter stints. Save after each set instead of only after a match would make it 5 stars!
Game glitch!
by Terris07 on 2019/05/12 21:39
Hi developers, suddenly the app’s controls (in any mode) are not responding. Only can hit ball but cannot choose a direction for it to go. I tried quitting and reopening the app and even deleted and reinstalled it (losing all the data and being forced to start from scratch) and NOTHING. Please fix! Thank you. (iOS 12.2).
Great game but needs an update
by Blackgrim23 on 2019/07/08 17:23
The game is great and I spent lots of hours in it, but now having my iPhone Xs the game screen is small compared to the new edge to edge display, this game needs to be updated to fit the new generation of iPhones.
Would give a 5, but

Great graphics, great concept, BUT the ads play over the first point when your opponent is serving, so you start every game that you are receiving down a point. You exit the ad just in time to see that you are down Love - 15...need to fix that. MAJOR FLAW
My Review on the game !
by 3B4A on 2019/04/05 09:11
I’m from Egypt , and i become a fan of this game ! The game is very good but with some adjustments , it can be fascinating ! I think you may introduce some features like changing costume in the world tour , adding some new tournaments , removing some bugs and reducing adds a little if you prefer . Thanks !
No multiplayer

If you download this game to play with friends its bad decision . Multiplayer is unplayable, hard to connect to room via Bluetooth, if you spend 15 minutes turning off and on your device and Bluetooth you might get lucky ... but for a second , first second of match starts it will crush or it will lag like north Korean internet ( ios 13.1.3 IPhone Xs max )
Repetitive

It’s a fun game but repetitive. I have beaten Theron a dozen times and somehow he still rises in the ranks. Also, I can’t play anymore due to some glitch. I could serve, but my buttons won’t work when returning volleys all of a sudden. Put way too much time in to delete app and start all over again.
Controls broken since last update

After the recent update you can’t hit the ball and use the directional “pad” at the same time. This has been an awesome game until this update. This means you can’t aim the ball. You have to pick move or hit but can’t use both at the same time. Please fix this great game! Thank you.
