Super Tennis Gameplay
Super Tennis features three different tennis modes: Doubles, a World Circuit, and Singles mode. In Circuit mode the player earns ranking points, with the ultimate aim of achieving number one in the tennis rankings. There are four minor tournaments and four major tournaments, played on grass, clay and hard courts. The tournaments are based on real-life tennis players and include nearly every world tournament in existence at that time.
Each playable tennis player has their own abilities. Multiple of the right-hand buttons of the SNES controller perform different tennis racket moves and the direction of the ball when hit is influenced by the control pad, which also moves the player around their side of the tennis court in anticipation of the ball. Super Tennis takes some time to master, as the game neither tells the player how to play, nor gives them any knowledge on how the many different playable characters subtly differ in play style.
