Lots of words have already been spent detailing a lot of the cool things going on with My Player mode in Top Spin 4. However, one thing that had not been mentioned was whether or not full-on tennis matches (see: five sets, six games per set) had been included this time around.
Nevertheless, I can happily say that you will finally be able to play real tennis during My Player mode in Top Spin 4. Five sets, six games per set, let the best man win.
However, be aware that you have to select this option at the beginning of the career mode, and you can never change it after the career mode has begun. 2K decided to do it this way because of "balancing" concerns related to switching between full sets and abbreviated ones from match to match.
Many folks will not care about this option because only so many people have time to play one to two hour matches, but for those that want to be truly hardcore (I will be in that group), you can finally go for it.
Power to the player.
