Yahoo Tennis

Game Description: Play tennis against the computer.

How to Play Yahoo Tennis:

  • Click the 'Start' button.
  • The first match you will play is against CPU1 (computer opponent number 1).
  • For all matches you are always the player at the bottom in the striped shirt.
  • You serve the first game. After that, you and your computer opponent take turns serving.
  • Control your player by moving your mouse.
  • Click your left mouse button to shoot.
  • Standard tennis scoring applies.
  • The first player to win 4 games wins the match!
  • If the computer wins the match the game is over.
  • If you win the match you get to play the next player, CPU2.
  • Your ultimate goal is to win the tournament by defeating each opponent you encounter.

Yahoo Tennis Playing Tips:
  • Try clicking your mouse early, then hold it down and release when you are ready to shoot. Holding your mouse down positions your racket early, and gives you more power on your shots. Once you learn this simple technique, you can hit the ball with more power and you will win many more points.
  • When you serve, you can move your player along the baseline to get different serving angles.
  • Don't forget to charge the net. This is necessary to return a short shot by your opponent. It can also be a good offensive tactic if you can get comfortable playing at the net.
  • CPU2 serves much harder than CPU1. You will notice the difference immediately. The best way to return the serve of a player that serves hard is to click your mouse early and hold it down. Then, release your mouse when you are ready to shoot. Again, what this does is it gets your racket in 'hitting position' early. Using this effective technique, not only will you be able to return the serve of CPU2, but you will actually be able to return service winners!
