Top Spin™ is the complete tennis experience. Define your tennis playing style, take risks, pull off world-class shots, and work the crowd to develop a unique image on the court. You can also train with a coach, to master shots and playing surfaces and work your way up the online rankings to become the best in the world.
Top Spin offers singles or doubles matches with 16 of the world's top professionals, including cover athletes Anna Kournikova and the world's number-one player, Lleyton Hewitt.
# Experience intense action and realism: Top Spin delivers all the intensity of professional tennis, from cross-court winners and crushing ground strokes to rocket serves. Master all the shots, including slices, lobs, drops, spins, and several trick shots, while perfecting your play on various surfaces, including clay, hard court, and grass.
# Get into the zone: Top Spin challenges you to take risks. Try difficult shots to get into the zone, and use that momentum to improve your play. Develop your player's image on the court by pumping his or her fist after a great shot, slamming a racket to the ground, or arguing a bad call.
# Become the world's best player: You may be number one in your own living room, but Xbox Live gives you the chance to prove it, any time and any place, on a global scale. Climb worldwide ladders, play tournaments, take on all challengers in singles matches, or find a skilled partner for doubles play.
# Build a career: Personalize your player's look, style, and personality and get coaching to correct a weakness or perfect an aspect of his or her tennis game. Work your way up from the local playground, through the amateur ranks, to playing real pros in the world's top tournaments… while earning endorsements along the way.
