Genesis - ATP Tour Championship Tennis Box Art FrontGenesis - ATP Tour Championship Tennis Box Art Back

There are three game modes: Exhibition match, Exhibition Tournament (where the player competes in a 32-player tournament), ATP Senior Tour Event (where the player chooses one of the retired players and competes in a 8-player tournament) and the ATP Tour, where it's possible to create a player and develop his skills by winning (or simply doing well) on tournaments, with one extra point on each round won. Gameplay uses a simple 3-button layout, where the A button lobs the ball, B performs a controlled passing shot and C allows the fastest top spin shots, with the directional pad affecting the direction and depth of the shot.

Additional Information

In this 16-Meg sequel to Wimbledon Championship Tennis, ATP Tour Championship Tennis lets you play as one of 40 professional players, including eight legends such as Arthur Ashe and John McEnroe. Each player is rated from one to ten in the following seven areas: forehand control, forehand power, backhand control, backhand power, serve control, serve power, and footwork.

If you fancy yourself the next Pete Sampras but don't want to play as the champ, you can create your own alter ego and try to build up his ratings (there are no female players in the game) during competition. Up to four custom players can be saved to battery, each starting with ten ability points to distribute among the seven categories.

Winning matches will allow you to add more points to the different abilities, and statistics and standings are saved to battery along with each created player. The four game modes include: Exhibition Match, Exhibition Tournament, ATP Senior Tour Event (only the eight legends can participate) and the ATP Tour (which follows the 1995 schedule).

An announcer will call each game as you play a singles or doubles match on either carpet, hard court, grass or clay. Options include adjusting game speed, toggling a ball bounce pointer, and using automatic replay to view that last shot over again. Digitized black and white photographs of the pros will appear during the menu and scoreboard screens, and four players can play simultaneously with a Team Player adaptor.
