Yes, it's that magic word, Spec-chums - but are simulators still stimulators? Actually this is just another common or garden tennis game, and, as it's a while since we've seen anything like that, it's not unwelcome. In programming terms, there's probably not a lot you can do with such a familiar format - other than make it extremely playable, which Pro Tennis Sim certainly is. Controls are simple, and happily the computer assumes you're a rather better player than you really are by, for instance, letting you serve properly most of the time. Too kind. Meanwhile there are three skill levels to battle against, and a rather fetching red clay court to play on (green comes along later, I believe). No Pro Tennis Simulator is not at all bad. But "Absolutely brilliant"? It seems darling David's been forgetting to take his pills again. A good solid bargain title - nothing more, nothing less.
