I really enjoy this game, there's lots of acheivements / items to unlock and also being able to set yourself goals helps give the game longevity. Great as multiplayer too. As the Wii isn't capable of handing amazing graphics be prepared to see charactitures of tennis stars, not realistic looking models.
At first I found the controls a little difficult but this is because you need to be a bit more precise with your actions (unlike other wii games where flicking the remote in pretty much any direction will perform the required action) and I very quickly got used to the controls.
I found that you have to swing slightly early to get your shots, I don't think that this is lag. Its required so you can accurately place the ball where you want, apart from the occasional instance where it mistakes your change from front to back-hand or vice-versa as a swing and you miss your shot, though this isn't a huge problem.
So remember to swing ever so slightly early and keep solid, fluid motions and you should master it in no time.
Online play is also very good though there are a few issues such as lag and you will come across some online players which can serve and return at a speed that is almost impossible to react to. I'm not sure what that is about but you certainly won't see it in offline mode. Online play sometimes also has issues with recognising points and second bounces.
Despite those problems the game is very good and great fun. I'm not a fan a sports games but the Wii has changed that for me and this is an excellent example.
