    After an initial lack of buzz, turns out some folks were interested in doing this.

    Idea is to have a Top Spin 4 tennis circuit comprised of a tournament or two a week. The tourneys will build to the grand slams with a major warm-up before each grand slam. For the Grand Slams we'll also have a doubles bracket.

    Signup by filling in the info about your tennis pro using the style below. As is fitting with Tradition ideals, realistic only players please. i.e. no 10 feet tall serve and volley freaks ;-).

    right now i'm thinking Wednesday nights, starting at 10 p.m. Eastern unless that's wildly unpopular. the other option is instead of having a night we do it like NCAA leagues. Brackets are announced on Wednesdays and folks just bang out the needed matches.

    Hmm....I'm interested but not sure about the create a player. I've always just played these types of games with the Pros. Is it fun? I normally have a hard time getting into building a 'my player' up. FIFA has a tremendous build a player (although in a different sense as you play with a team). But for me, I never have the time or desire to level up over and over.

    How long does it take to build a player?

    How good is the game this year? I've read some good reviews and was thinking about picking it up to tide me over until NCAA 12 hits.

    Any input from guys who play it regularly is greatly appreciated.

    I really enjoy it and have been playing a lot since I picked this up day-1. I would download the demo to see if you get some enjoyment from it.
