Nintento Wii Tennis Cheats, Tips, Hints from various sources...
Power serve - Some serves will have a trailing streak behind them and are difficult to return. These are power serves. To do one, time a quick swing to coincide with the top of the ball's arc. Controller angle is important. If your serving motion mimics an overhead tennis serve, then the controller needs to be angled forward and down, like in a true tennis serve or overhead smash. BTW, .
Super Slow Serve - Prevent bots and friends from returning your serve cross court for a winner. Toss the ball up and wait until the last second to serve it. This generates very slow, high serve, but for some reason, human and bot opponents struggle with the return. Thanks for the suggestion, 'Agassi'!
Make bots sweat - If you play against the bots, you'll notice that they begin to visibly sweat. When the sweating starts, they also slow down when reacting to your shots, making it easier for you to win points. Effects only last the duration of the game (not the match).
Topspin - Swing the controller forward, from low to high. Some suggest to rotate your wrist a little forward as well. This technique is particularly useful for getting good angles from the backcourt player. Adding topspin enables you to aim for sharper angles.
Backspin - Swing controller forward, from high to low. Some suggest to rotate your wrist a little backwards when making the swing as well. Once you get this technique down you can add crazy sidespin, and really fast backspin so that the ball will quickly skip off the surface. This can fool the bots at lower difficulty.
Lobs - Move the remote in an upwards direction, lifting it, without forward movement. Good for defensive shots when you are recovering from an opponents high angled shots. It gives you more time to move back towards the middle (you'll notice bots using this technique when they get better). You can also use it for netplay to lob over the front court player into the back corner of the court.
Volley directly at bots - When you hit directly at a bot in the backcourt, it will often miss-hit. It behaves like it can't decide whether to hit a forehand or backhand, and misses completely. Works best when bots are in the backcourt corners.
General technique - Use a sharp angled topspin shot to get the bots to one side of the court, and quickly pounce on their return with your net player so that he hits it to the other side. Basically just keep using the net player until you volley the ball away.
Standing at the net flicking the controller back and forth spastically is surprisingly effective.
Hitting net on purpose: Hold controller straight up, and chop quickly down with wrist movement. Like holding an axe and chopping quickly. 9 out of 10 times, the ball will hit the top part of the net and fall down. (Can't say this works that well for me.)
