    Tennis..one of the best, if not the best wii sports games. But like most games it has a fault. a thing where if something happens, you can do nothing about it. and it annoys the fudge outta me.

    So im playing my little bro on tennis (who happens to be a natural at it) and its 2-2, winning game. i serve the ball..and then BANG! he smashes it into the corner, where i cant EVER reach the ball. ive tried everything, moving the remote to one side, giving the mii time to get to the corner...but nothing works! :mad:

    Its very annoying, and it annoys my brother when i do it too. i wouldnt mind if the shot was hard to do..but its a very easy shot, that the opponent can NEVER get to!

    Also, i try it against the wii (computer) and they can get to it easy! they sorta fly to the corner to hit it! but when its a humans turn, its IMPOSSIBLE!

    now, have you noticed this error? do you know a way to actually GET TO THE BALL when this occurs? What do you think about this? Tell all :wink:

    I hear you, i have this exact same problem too.

    The only way i've found to prevent them hitting those returns is to make sure you serve a power serve, its impossible i think to make that corner return from a power serve.

    But yea it drives me absolutely bananas.

    If you swing the Wiimote to hit the ball when your Mii is running for it he/she will dive for it. If your Mii has a high enough skill level I'm sure you can get to it. You also could use your front Mii.

    haha easily fixed, throw the ball up, the bit it just as it's about to hit the floor, then the server is slower, and you mii will have a better chance of getting it ;) if the other player can even get it there.

    thats how your suppose to play tennis (closer to the edges but with more risk)
    thats how me and my friend play wii tennis (we basically pros xD) and weve come acustomed to stopping it, while your guy is still running over to the place, hit around 3-5 feet away from it, if you time ti right he should dive

    Well to play a game, you have to understand how it works, hit it to his backhand, harder to do it there, drive it down the middle, lob it, hit if softer, spin it.

    Just power serve every time, that way its MUCH harder to hit a winner (although it is possible).

    Guys it's because your serving straight to them. When your serving that side hit the ball just before it's about to hit the ball and they will do an under arm serve. This way they can't hit the ball across court.
