What a pain in the ass this was!! After spending days scouring the internet trying to find out how to unlock King, and trying, what feels like hundreds of different theories, I finally found one that works for me and so hopefully will for everyone else too.

Great King Achievement -

Play Arcade Mode Singles on any difficulty with any character.
In order to play against King you must win every game in arcade mode without dropping a game or allowing a game to go to deuce. You also need to get a medal in 5 of the 6 categories. The medal can be any type, Gold, Silver or Bronze.
This will mean that you must score either an ace or a dropshot/lob at some point so try to do that early on. Once you have the ace or the dropshot/lob just rack up special shots, strokes, volleys and smashes. You only need 1 dropshot/lob or ace to get a bronze medal in that category.

This should put you in a Special Match with King instead of an exhibition with Courier or a Special Match with Duke at the end of the fourth game.

When playing King -

He is good - really good. He plays with the type Strong Backhand so whenever you can, try to hit the ball towards the left side of the court so he has to use his forehand. This will give you a better chance. Other than that, just persevere. It took me 5 attempts to defeat him but it can be done.

Good luck!

Also be careful, when he defeats you, to choose retry and not return to menu as the option or you will need to start the complete arcade mode again.

Hopefully this works for everyone else too.

Edit - Original achievement guide said to play on normal difficulty. I have now edited that to say any difficulty as taz 98 achieved this on easy difficulty.

Thanks to taz98 for this extra information.
