At My Wit's End!

I don't know what else I can do on this pile of excrement!

On Very Easy or Easy it's a cakewalk. As soon as I switch to Normal, or heaven forbid Hard, it becomes impossible. I don't know what else I can do. I mix up my shot types, play cross-court shots, line shots.

The only thing that occurs is related to the fact that whenever I try lob shots or risk shots they almost always go wrong. This makes me think there's something fundamentally wrong with the way I play.

Does anyone have any useful tips? I cannot work out what I'm doing wrong. And there is no way in Hell I'll be able to beat the Hall of Fame to finish out the game otherwise. HELP!

Risk shots and lobs are not needed. Don't bother using them. If some are charging the net just blast it at them or keep them at the back of the court with your shot selection.

Just play from the baseline and hit good quality shots. Make sure when you add attributes you concentrate on 3 or 4 rather than have them averaged out.

Should be a breeze all the way to completing the hall of fame.

I had trouble a yr ago when I tried Hard difficulty.

Now it's easy.

My character has stupidly unfair stats (100 Forehand, Backhand, Power, Speed. 70 Volley. Rest of stats 30)

Now I can win every game on hard with just one type of shot.

All I do, hold A for a long time to add power, and shot left, right, left, right, until the opponent fails to return the shot.
Extremely easy.

Not to bring up an old thread, but better than starting a new one with the same topic. Can anyone give some more detailed hints on: 1.) How to play on Hard. 2.) How play risk shots and risk serves.

I can't for my life figure out how to do risk shots. Every time I use them, it goes horribly wrong and goes out of bounds. It doesn't teach you exactly what buttons need to be pressed and when in the tutorials. I'm confused at how I should be be pressing the buttons. Say for instance I am hitting a normal risk safe shot down the middle, what would I press? Do I tap RT and then hold A and release A? Do I hold RT during the duration of pressing A? Do I hold A and tap A again and press RT at some point? I can play Top Spin 2 and 4 on the hardest difficulty no problem but the controls in this game are the worst in any game I have played in my life lol....

Don't play risk shots. Ever. Just max out power, it's far, far more useful than the other stats. Then you can outright overpower any opponent in rallies.
