The first Xbox tennis game builds upon the groundwork established in 2001's Tennis Masters Series for PC. In addition to an ATP Tour license, the game includes a full Career Mode allowing players an opportunity to guide one of 67 athletes up the rankings ladder. Each game earns players experience points used to build speed, power, serve, and other attributes, with bonus points awarded for winning matches.
Updated graphics from the PC original include an increase in polygon count (from 3,000 to over 5,000 per player), facial expressions, high-resolution textures, and crowds offering a variety of animations. Another new feature is the nine tournaments representing the Tennis Masters Series can now be played in singles or doubles competition rather than just singles. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
