How to unlock the The Competitor achievement

    This works for both allstar and pro circuits of course allstar is slightly harder. NOTE "The pro and allstar achievements don't stack so you will have to do them both seperately."

    Firstly make sure it is default settings which is first to 11 with 2 of 3 games needed to win. This can be changed in the options menu simply by pressing the x button.

    Character: I choose Mark and he is the only one I have tested. I don't know about other character but he will definitely work.

    Method: On your serve use the ace serve trick, take on step back and five to the right and hit a heavy leftspin serve across the court, (the other method mentioned in previous solution of stepping left and using right spin does not work.) Using this method you will ace the serve 9 times out of 10 and if not the the CPU wastes their star power bar trying to return. Then all you have to do is win at least one point on the oppositions serve and hold your own.

    Problems: You will have to play nine/ten people in total through the three stages (three in the first, three in the second and three/four in the last) In allstar I came up against three players (Hayley, Solayman and Jung Soo) who were difficult to beat as they manage to return the ace serve trick more times than the other players. However still use it because as mentioned earlier most of the time they use there star power to get it back. You can always rematch if you loose but when playing these three try to move the about and also try to avoid playing shots down the line as they can get you out of position and make you vunerable to either a heavy spin shot or a smash. Also wait until your star power is full and automatically goes down rather than using it on specific shots as you will get to green quicker and be able to win more points from smashes. (Against Solayman be careful when smashing as he can return them very quickly and win the point.)

    xx CORNDAWG xxI used mark and the ace serve helped but against hung soo it was almost useless. I then started holding lb for a soft shot with y for backspin and pulling back on the left stick only for a second or two (only pull the stick after you start holding y or you will move you player). If you time this right it, it will bounce off the net and they can't hit it most of the time. First time I tried this along with the ace serve I beat jung soo and luc in the first two matches to get the achievement.

    You can try use the "ace" trick.

    Walk full to the left side (or right side) of the table. Than one full step back to the right ( or left). If you stay on the right side of the table use the left spin on cn_X if you stay on the left side use the right spin on cn_B

    hold the left stick on the right side in the cn_LSdl position (on left side in cn_RSdr), than press and hold cn_X (or cn_B) the black bar must reach max and the white line 75 - 100%. when you do right you will do an "ace". With this "trick" you can win each game in worst case 21 to 19 ;). This trick is for Jesper near impossible to do in my opinion. But for all others with a little bit train its a very good "trick".

    It works best for me with playing Mark or Yung So

    Hope that helps ;)
