Excerpt: It is widely acknowledged that Wii Tennis was the most played, most enjoyed game in the Wii Sports bundle that accompanied the system at launch. It was easy to play, but hard to master. It was obvious that developers would be quick to produce new tennis games to follow up the success of Wii Tennis.
