Description

In the official game of the Roland Garros tennis tournament, the player has the option either to make simple matches (with the option to choose between male or female players, single or doubles and number of sets) in four court types (Hard, Cement, Grass and Synthetic) in a number of different venues all around the world, from the Grand Slam courts in Paris, London and NY to a paradisiac beach. There is also a full season mode where players chose 10 of the included tournaments and play for both money and points, hoping to reach the top spot.

Gameplay is what one could expect from a tennis game - two buttons, one to perform a slice shot and other a top spin. The direction of the ball is controlled by the time between the player pressing the button and hitting the ball. Each court type affects the ball differently, so mastering both the baseline and the net is important in tournament play.
