So I got Top Spin 4 for xbox at Christmas (my friend bought me it, I got him a mug lol #winning), and i've been playing it quite a bit.

Career mode is good - i've been playing for a couple of weeks and still not won a grand slam. It gets really difficult from semi finals onwards, i've reached two finals and lost both. My career bears a striking resemblance to that of Andy Murray - success everywhere but the grand slams and a shocking temper when things aren't going my way (only with me it's directed more at the opponents than myself :) ).

The game recreates the grand slams pretty well (except, that is, for Wimbledon, which is absent and replaced by the prestigious sounding "Dublin Open") and like I said, career mode is pretty sweet.

Anyone got this game? Or any other recent tennis game?

Yeah man. Took what felt like an age and training and gaining experience with a few different coaches to get to grand slam play. Won the glorious Dublin Open beating Murray, won USO beating Murray, lost to Roddick at semi's at Aussie, lost to Roddick in the final of the French (!?!?!?!?!?) won the next Dublin Open beating Fed, then retired at 24 out of boredom.

Yeah a couple do. Clydey, Certinfy and I are on 360 sometimes.

Wimbledon doesn't allow their brand to be used in games, hence why theres always some fake tournament used for the grass slam.

I do love Wimbledon (to the extent that I book two weeks off work to watch it every year) but can't help but to feel that it's being run by dinosaurs!

Hope my first slam doesn't come at the Dublin Open... (but I suppose it's better than no slam at all!)

Haha that's amazing. In my 5 year career it's mainly been Federer and Nadal hoovering up all the slams. Federer has handed me numerous 0-3 0-3 beatdowns - he's provoked me into using language I hoped i'd never use.

:lol: <3

I'm pretty terrible at this game but it is definitely addictive.. still in the lower stages of career so far!

Just don't make the same mistake I did on first play and go hardcore with 6 a game sets. All those early 6-0 6-0 sets get very dull very fast.

Add me on Xbox Live, "Jason Fernandes" if you want to play. :)

Not sure if that's on Gold anymore though, if it's not then add my other account "Kavq" which is though.
