Top Spin 4 has become the gold standard for tennis video games on the Xbox 360 and PS3. Every serve, forehand and backhand of each pro player—Nadal, Federer, Roddick, Agassi, et. al.—is nearly identical to their real-life movements.
But what really separates Top Spin 4 from other tennis video games is the point system. To win, you must construct a carefully-calculated shot that sets up a powerful winner, sharp angle or crafty volley.
An extensive online community allows you to play tournaments like the US Open or French Open against players from all over the world. And beyond the normal benefits of a high ranking and personal glory, 2K Sports is upping the ante. This week they announced their 2K Open Contest, allowing players to compete for a fully-paid trip to the US Open.
All you have to do is play in ranked matches in the game's online 2K Open. The top two-ranked players at midnight on April 30 will be awarded a trip to the US Open to compete for the grand prize and watch the world's best players.
Take this opportunity and give yourself a chance to win a free trip to a fantastic sporting event. And be inspired by your tennis idols, like Andy Murray.
Contest information can be found at facebook.com/topspin4.
