Wii Tennis update
My ranking broke 2200 on Saturday. Last week, the bosses' son was visiting, and I beat him 3 matches to 2. His ranking is somewhere over 2300.

It's going to take a lot of playing for me to get my ranking that high, I think. Once you're at this level, you have to win each of the three games in a match pretty decidedly. If you play a one-game match or a three-game match, even if you win every point, you'll go negative. If, in a five-game match, you lose a game, you'll go negative. If you win every point in two games but go to a long deuce in the third game, you might still go negative a few points.

I think I'll set a goal for myself of reaching 2400. We'll see if this happens. I did a little searching but couldn't find a Wii Tennis high-score list anywhere. Anyone heard of rankings over 2500?

Do you get any benefit for becoming Pro in Tennis? In Bowling they change the ball on you....just wondering if Tennis had something like that?

I'm pretty sure not. The one thing about tennis that changes as your rank increases is that the crowd gets bigger.

I did some more searching after I posted this entry, and I had to rethink my goal of 2400 :-) I don't think I'll be dedicated enough to every get much higher than I am right now (2209).

Thanks for the link :-)
