Oright, this is a thread to help everyone learn the MotionPlus controls for Grand Slam Tennis.
The Basics:1) Hold the Wii remote like you do in all Wii games. Thumb on the A button, forefinger on the B button.2) Use the nunchuck to move your character. It takes practice, but it's extremely rewarding once you nail it.3) To swing a forehand, rotate your body clockwise about 45 degrees, pull your remote back, and then swing. Do the opposite for a backhand.4) After every point, hold the Wii remote still (it doesn't matter where) for about 3 seconds.
Aiming:To aim, all you need to know how the face of your racket is oriented:With this knowledge, you can aim your shots wherever you want!
Spin:1) Swing in an upward motion to apply topspin2) Swing in a downward motion to apply backspin
I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

Yayy. @Prosody: Are you reviewing it? Whoever does, tell them not to pull a eurogamer and just play it for 5 minutes and then give it a bad score.

This game is driving me crazy. Thanks for the tips, I'm gonna try again now.edit: Nope, I still suck. Playing with the nunchuk is a bit awkward too. They need to make a wireless one of those...

Scratch that. The controls have just sort of 'clicked'. I prefer it without the nunchuk though. I meant a first-party wireless nunchuk btw. I don't like buying those other ones.

No worries, after a day or two of playing the nunchuck feels natural. Believe me, I was really disappointed with the game the first few hours playing. Now it's my favorite sports game.

Yes, it's very good. The controls are great but anything over easy difficulty and I'm terrible. That's because of my lack of skill though, no fault of the game.

Haha yeah. I've gotten to where I can win a 6 game 3 set match on hard. It's pretty epic when you get to that level - slugging it out at the baseline is priceless.
