Ok, this achievement seems to be causing some people serious headaches.

Here's what to do: -

Go to 'Play' Mode

Set up like this: Exhibition
Singles
1 Player
Random Court
6 Games
5 Sets (Doesn't really matter)
Tiebreaks Off (Important)
Server Bottom (So its always starts with you)
AI Easy or Very Easy

Now select Roddick as your player and any other player as player 2.

Roddicks serve meter moves a lot slower than any other player. I got this achievement in the first game as him but to check it wasn't fluck I played a whole set up to six games and in one game I managed to get 7 max serves in a row, purposely getting faults. Yes, faults do count so you could, double fault and even fault on the next serve and the achievement stands.

The reason you have tie breaks off is to save yourself going to their serve so you can keep getting Duece, Advantage, Duece, Advantage until you get the achievement, i.e. if you get to Advantage then just let the computer win the point, then you win the next point then the computer...............

This method gives you countless attempts at serving in one game.

Good Luck!

I find this chievo surprisingly easy & got it in my first tournament & since then i've even got 3 max aces in a row. The only advice i can give is don't even try until you get 2 max serves then try otherwise you will get fustrated very easy & it will seem harder than it actually is, also like OP says bigger & better servers like Roddick help but if you don't like his service motion then just get a rocket server play style with a service motion that suits you.

I found this quite easy to unlock, was one of the first i unlocked. the achievement on vt3 was a lot harder as you needed 5 max serves in a row. i struggled for ages to get that one.

I actually struggled when 'trying' to get this, so I just forgot about it and since then I've managed it about five times without even thinking about it. Don't even have a specialist server either so it's not that bad.

Good for you. Lets fill these threads with people going "I got this so easy", "I got this ages ago", "blah, blah, blah!".

Same here can't do an Ace to save my life, Only done about 20:( Anyone got any tips? How do you serve down the middle like the pros:p

Vell, you press the A button to throw the ball into the air, while its in the air, move the LS left or right (depending where you stand), then, when the bar is at the top, you press A again, hope you get a serve, the achievement is a piece of piss, i done this, and got it with my first three serves with Roddick.

This was a lot easier than I thought it would be, got it in my second tourney.

i got the 3 max quite early in the game, i have 14 aces lol, but getting a max and the ball right in to corner never gives a ace, just get a max on very easy difficulty and DONT direct it, all my aces came like that
