Tennis Elbow 2009 v1.0b released for Windows PC&Mac OSX

Tennis Elbow comes back with a big update, including a lot of new features and gameplay tweaks.

Tennis Elbow 2009 is a tennis simulation with an easy and intuitive learning curve, but with exceptional gameplay depth.

In this tennis game, you’ll have to show all your tactical skills, use an iron mind and quick reflexes, as well as a sharp eye to guess the ball trajectories, all of this to choose your next strike wisely.

To beat your opponent, you have the choice between all the possible strikes on a real court, from the safe strike to the acceleration, including the drop shot and the topspin lob.

This tennis simulation is designed for all tennis lovers, whether gamepad mashers or keyboard novices, because of its numerous difficulty levels. In addition, a visual help system will assist you in aiming the ball and positioning your player. You can turn this option on and off whenever it suits you.

TE2009 features one of the most complete World Tour ever made in a tennis video game. With 3000 players evolving other 35 years, competing in 300 tournaments each year, from the low rank tournament qualifications to the top level event finals, both in singles and doubles competition, you’ll feel like diving in a real professional tennis player’s career.

Since its initial release at the end of last year, the game got even more realistic: you can now make gestures at the end of the point like applauding a good shot of your opponent, throwing your racket, apologizing for a lucky strike or pimping your fist. You can also now choose between different strike styles for your service, forehand and backhand.

There are as well many gameplay tweaks&tunings to offer you an even more enjoyable and realistic tennis simulation.

For the best gaming experience, the minimum system requirements are: a 1.2 GHz CPU with 512 MB RAM, and a 64MB 3D video card.
