I can't believe nobody has posted a guide for this yet so having just won it, I thought I should post something. Please note, this is just my advice, and not a guaranteed solution. I've seen enough posts from people who've had problems with this to guess that it may well be quite a buggy achievement.

1. First up, the achievement description appears to be inaccurate. While in World Tour mode, you can play quick matches or tournament games. I believe that playing quick matches does not count towards this achievement. It has to be tournament games, and just to be on the safe side, I would recommend playing one of the big 4 grand slam tournaments.

2. Despite what you may have read elsewhere, I do not believe you have to win a tournament match in 5 different seasons, only play one to completion. I got the achievement having just lost the first game I played in the latest season.

3. I *think* that you have to play a game in 5 seasons with the same character so that the stats carry over from season to season. This is based on what happened to a friend of mine, who's character stats kept getting reset at the start of each new season. He did not get the achievement, even after winning a grand slam tournament game in 5 different seasons.

I'd welcome comments from anyone else who has had a different experience, and I will amend my guide accordingly.

EDIT: Thanks to all the commenters for explaining the problem with stats being reset when the game installs an update. It seems that the best way to avoid having your stats reset when an update installs is to limit the number of other Xbox games you play whilst going for this achievement. This is to prevent your Xbox from wiping the top spin update from its cache and redownloading it. Most people have stuck to 2-3 to be on the safe side but you may be able to get away with more if you have a newer model Xbox with a larger cache.
