The last great British tennis player was Fred Perry, which shows how poor we are in this sport - that was so long ago even his T-shirts have gone out of fashion. You can redeem this fact though (the tennis, not the shirts), with Pro Tennis Tour, the most realistic bat n' ball sim on the Spectrum.

The graphics are massive, with large, well defined players blatting the hell of the ball. The controls are very responsive and playing sneaking sideline shots is surprisingly easy. All this makes PTT by far the best tennis sim you can get your hands on.
