I recommend going up against Boris Becker for this one (and pretty much all the hard achievements actually).

His game is very, very predictable, play a practice set against him and you'll probably see what I mean after 2 games. He almost always goes down the line or straight down the middle, will only go cross-court in very rare circumstances. Using your topspin shot (B) you can draw him out wider and wider then go for the winner, you probably won't even need a risk shot, he's slow enough that after a few shots he just won't make it.

He also likes to step in to his shots and come in for the volley, however he's not very good at it, often coming in too early and giving you plenty of opportunity to plant a passing winner. Using the top spin shot when he's at net is a good play as it loops higher over the net and volley AI players find it harder to reach.

Becker also hits very few unforced errors in my experience so he won't go robbing you of winners by giving points away.

On serve plant flat power shots out wide, the AI will probably manage to return them, but in such a way that it's an easy 1 stroke put-away into the opposite corner, again Becker is so slow you probably won't need to use risk shots, just good timing and high forehand and backhand stats will do the trick.

You can do it fairly easily in a 3 set match with 3 games per set, let it go to deuce on a couple of games to boost the number of points available if need be.
