    Step 2: World Tour Casual – First Playthrough
    Start the World Tour on Casual difficulty to get  Bronze World Debut. During your first playthrough focus on getting used to the layout and how to complete the levels.
    Collect as many Stars as possible for Bronze 100 Stars and you’ll most likely obtain Bronze Famous (350) & Silver Accomplished (550). 

    During this playthrough you should also have in mind the Trophies attached to the Mini-Games. These are available from the Main-Menu Party Mode, so again it’s no big deal if you do not get them.
    They are:
    Bronze Great Sniper
    Bronze Mother Hen
    Bronze Hat Tricker
    Bronze Bomb Fiend
    Wind Master
    Bronze Wall Wiz
    Whilst playing the Mini-Games you’ll get Stars & Money to help contribute. You’ll also rank up your abilities which leads to Bronze My Style.

    The following will also come naturally as you progress through your first playthrough:- Bronze 10 Wins
    Bronze Loving It
    Endless Rally
    Crowd Pleaser
    All-Out Player
    Rocker Server

    Bronze Best Stroker & Bronze Volley Master should also come during your first playthrough; however should they not give them a little more concentration during playthrough two.
    At the end you’ll receive Bronze World Tour Cleared!.

    Step 3: World Tour Casual – Second Playthrough
    This time concentrate on getting all the Stars possible. You should be able to make all the little tournaments that you failed to reach on your first playthrough. By the end of you second tour you should have around 300 Stars to be on track.
    Hire as many Agents as possible to get more Stars during this playthrough (They’ll be available in your second tour).

    During this step you’ll earn these trophies:
    Gold Ultimate Star
    Bronze 20 Awards!

    Step 3a: World Tour Casual – First Playthrough
    This will be just in case you missed any of the above, but is mainly for “Good Partner”, which should come within your first tour of this playthrough.

    You may also need to use this one in order to boost your earnings. Just play this playthrough until you get your third partner and then leave a saved game so you can come back to it if you do not achieve enough earning whilst on your way to “Online Master“.

    During this step you’ll earn these trophies:
    Bronze Good Partner
    Bronze Shopaholic
    Bronze Marathon Runner
    Bronze Swing Machine

    Step 4: Arcade Mode
    Play the Singles Arcade Mode on any difficulty and do not lose a single set. Your opponents will get harder as you progress, so use your first opponent to get your Drop Shots Points that count for Bronze Medal Collector. To get this you’ll need to vary your winning shots.
    During your matches, try to hit as many Volleys, Smashes & Supershots as possible and you should also obtain the other miscellaneous trophies.

    During this step you’ll earn the following trophies:
    BronzeArcade Hero
    Bronze Arcade Star

    During this step you’ll earn the following trophies:
    Bronze Exhibitionist
    Silver Poker Face
    Silver Moneybags

    Step 6: Online
    Online can be boosted easily, however I had 23 Hrs of Online play when this Trophy popped for me…. This involved a LOT of boosting.
    You will also gain money for playing Ranked Matches whilst playing online.

    During this step you’ll earn the following trophies:
    Bronze Tycoon

    Bronze Online Debut
    Bronze First Online Victory
    Bronze Online Streak
    Silver Online Veteran
    Gold Online Master

    20L35ad35Great King upscale-245262160018212
    Defeat the King in Arcade Mode Singles

    To get King as an opponent you need to not lose a single set on your way to him. People have reported that you can not allow any match to go to Deuce and that you have to get 5 out of 6 Gold Medals. King shows up as the 5th opponent and he’s tough. The tactic most used was to be very aggressive, serve in the angle to push him as far as possible and follow to the net with a Volley/Smash. Avoid staying on the baseline because he can hit the ball really hard or make some Dropshots. Slice as much you can by using  to prevent him from attacking, and rush to the net. The return games are much more difficult but fortunately you don’t need to win by a break, so focus on your 2 service games. The game allows you to restart the match as many times as you want.

    2L1ac2b7Arcade Star
    Achieve a player score of 5,000,000 points

    See Bronze Arcade Hero.

    2L1ac2b7Arcade Hero
    Achieve a player score of 7,770,000 points

    After each match you get bronze, silver, or gold medals that give you points depending on the winning shots you made. You need 10 of each for a Gold Medal (Volleys, Smashes, Lobs/Dropshots, Groundstrokes, Supershots & Max Serves). As posted in the Roadmap use your first opponent as you “Guiney Pig”, and keep it at “Deuce” for approx 20 occasions.
    I played on normal and I finished my first match with 3,500,000 points this way and put me well on the way to earning the trophy.

    2L1ac2b7Medal Collector
    Earn three Points Won medals

    As said in Arcade Hero; after each match on Arcade Mode you earn medals related to the number of shots you made in the following categories:

    • Volleys
    • Smashes
    • Lobs/Dropshots
    • Groundstrokes
    • Supershots
    • Max Serves
    2L1ac2b7Balloon Popper

    2L1ac2b7Great Sniper
    Achieve a 5x Combo in Clay Shooting

    This mini-game can be played in the World Tour or Party mode – You’ll probably get it without even trying; as long as you don’t use the  Button.
    A tip for this is not to use the direction controller when hitting the ball and just simply keep pressing and holding .

    2L1ac2b7Mother Hen
    Deliver at least 10 chicks simultaneously to their mother in Egg Collector

    This mini-game can be played in the World Tour or Party mode.

    2L1ac2b7Hat Tricker
    Score 3 goals in a row in Ace Striker

    This mini-game can be played in the World Tour or Party mode.
    Self Explanatory – It’s easier on Level One as the goalie is slower and there’s no defenders.

    20L35ad35Poker Face upscale-245262160018212
    Get 10 royal straight flushes in Royal Poker

    This mini-game can be played in the World Tour or Party mode. Much easier than it seems, it’s just a bit more time consuming than the other mini-games as you need to be on level 4 to even get the right cards to appear.
    You don’t need to get the 10 Royal Flushes on the same game session as it accumulative. For people who do not know what a Royal Flush is; it is a Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten of the same suit.
    If they are not the same suit then it is classed as a straight, so will not count.

    2L1ac2b7Bomb Fiend
    Detonate 20 bombs in the opponent’s court in Bomb Match

    This mini-game can be played in the World Tour or Party mode.
    Self Explanatory – Use the  for better control – You don’t need to detonate them all on the same game session.

    This mini-game can be played in the World Tour or Party mode.
    Self Explanatory & Accumulative – It just takes a while to get that many coins.

    2L1ac2b7Wind Master
    Pop 3 balloons in one Wind Match

    This mini-game can be played in the World Tour or Party mode.
    Self Explanatory – Aim for the middle of the court with the .

    2L1ac2b7Wall Whiz
    Hit a wall 5 times with the ball in one Wall Match

    This mini-game can be played in the World Tour or Party mode.
    Self Explanatory – Use the  for better control – Try to keep at least two walls up. This is not accumulative.

    2L1ac2b7World Debut
    Participate in the World Tour

    Self Explanatory – Start World Tour and the Trophy will popup.

    2L1ac2b7World Tour Cleared!
    Clear the game

    Clear the World Tour and the Trophy will popup no matter how many stars you have.
    This will take you through four seasons to participate in the continents biggest events. It does not matter how good or bad you are at this, as you’ll still get it.

    Become: Famous

    See Gold Ultimate Star.

    22Lff65e1Ultimate Star Gold
    Become: Ultimate Star

    Get 750 stars in the World Tour
    As in the Roadmap, use the second season to really go for it. This way you’ll understand the mechanisms of the game and how to gain the most stars.
    Don’t worry about money whilst going for this and focus on the activities that give stars; hire as many Agents as possible (they’re available from season 2) and they’ll give you bonus stars for 7 days. There are two different types of Agents available and also cost different. Try to always have a RED agent as they give you a better bonus.
    If you get 750+ Stars by the end of basically the US Open, there will be a 5th season where you can get even more stars and dollars. Your final opponent is King.
    You can view your status by selecting “SPT Rating”.

    2L1ac2b7Good Partner
    Acquire 3 doubles partners

    In the World Tour, a famous player will sometimes challenge you to a Vs Mini-Game. Just beat him and he’ll become your doubles partner.
    If you miss one, don’t worry, your partners carry over across playthroughs – Usually gained at a rate of 1 per Tour.

    2L1ac2b7My Style
    Acquire a play style

    Whilst playing the Mini-Games you’ll rank up your abilities. This can be obtained when you’ve reached level 10 on one of the four abilities. This will come naturally.

    2L1ac2b7100 Stars!
    Earn 100 stars

    In the World Tour you gain stars doing various activities or taking part in the tournaments. This will come naturally.

    2L1ac2b720 Awards!
    Earn 20 awards

    SPT Awards carry over across playthroughs and will be obtained when you clear a the continent that you’re playing on.
    SPT Awards are obtained by being the following through that continent:

    • Season MVP
    • Spedy Finish Award
    • MAX Serve Award
    • Smash Point Award
    • Super Shot Point Award
    • Charity Event Award
    Earn 1,000,000 in total prize money

    Money is accumulative. You do not have to have $1.000.000 available. You just need to have earned it through your whole career.
    Money is gained whilst playing Ranked Matches online, so do not worry too much as Gold Online Master will probably take you longer.
    This can be grinded out later by playing another World Tour should you need too.

    Purchase 50 types of items in the Kit Catalogue

    Bought items carry over across playthroughs. You will need less than $300,000 to buy 50 items (depending on their price). Feel free to spend all your cash, this trophy doesn’t conflict with Bronze Tycoon as explained above.

    2L1ac2b7Online Debut
    Play online with a customised character

    Self Explanatory – Just create someone and play an online game with him/her.

    2L1ac2b7First Online Victory
    Win a Ranked Match

    See Bronze Online Streak.

    2L1ac2b7Online Streak
    Win three consecutive Ranked Matches

    Self Explanatory – Can be difficult and take a long time to obtain due to the Network Issues. Your streak will be restarted should the Network crash, or you pull out of the game. If you pull out before selecting a character it will not reset.
    The best way I have found to play this game is to quick serve right across court and then run to the net for a smash.

    20L35ad35Online Veteran upscale-245262160018212
    Log 10 hours of online play time

    Self Explanatory – Very time consuming, but can be boosted

    22Lff65e1Online Master Gold
    Reach Rank A

    The most time consuming Trophy of all – You will start your online career at XP level G5 and you will need to work your way up the alphabet and take the numbers from 5 down to 1. When you get to level A5 the Trophy will pop.
    It’s literally just a matter of time before you get this Trophy as all online gaming will give you some sort of XP, even if you lose. You will need a total of 8050xp in order to reach rank A5 – credit stuart1044.
    A way of not even trying, but will take you ages, is to get onto the Network screen and just keep pressing . This will take you in and out of games and play, without you getting kicked. This will take a long time however, so be prepared to do this every evening for a week or two…..

    Below details a number of different ways that can speed up the online boosting process – credit superpj

    Here’s how you progress through the rankings:
    G5, G4, G3, G2, G1, F5, F4, F3, F2, F1, … … … A5, A4, A3, A2, A1 (A5 is enough for Rank A).

    You gain XP whether you win or lose a game:
    Friendly match: 6xp per won game and 5xp per lost game (tx dudevid)
    Ranked game: 7xp per won game and 6xp per lost game (tx boris)

    So make a Friendly match of 5 sets & 6 games without tie-breaker and conclude with a score of 6-5/5-6/6-5/5-6/6-5. Both of you will get over 300 points. The match lasts at least 50 minutes so it may be wise to play only 2 or 3 sets instead, in case you lose your connection (tx nsync).

    You can grind either actively or passively (credits Dudevid).
    1/ Passive grinding (the match lasts around 1hr 50m but you do not have to do anything):
    Don’t do anything. The players will serve automatically after 10 seconds and the match will end in 1hr 50m (approx).
    Each set lasts around 22m with auto serve.

    2/ Active grinding – 1st method (lasts less than 1hr):
    Just throw aces.

    3/ Active grinding – 2nd method (lasts less than 50m):
    Speed things up by skipping the “replay” video after each point. To do this, instead of making aces, let your opponent win the point. Why? Because if you make an ace, it triggers the replay. If your opponent wins the point by just pressing , there’s no replay.
    A 5-Set match goes down from over an hour to less than 50m.

    2L1ac2b710 Wins!
    Win 10 matches

    Self Explanatory – This can be obtained through any of your playthroughs. It will come naturally.

    2L1ac2b7Loving It!
    Win 10 Love games

    Self Explanatory – You have to win the match without losing a point. Can be done in any play mode.

    20L35ad35Big Hitter upscale-245262160018212
    Hit 250 MAX Serves

    To hit a max serve to need to wait until your serve power meter is at its maximum. Use   or  whilst doing this.
    Accumulative Offline – You’ll get this eventually whilst aiming for other Trophies.

    2L1ac2b7Pushing it to the MAX!
    Hit four consecutive MAX serves

    Some people have found this quite difficult to get as the online serving is somewhat differently timed to the offline. I got it as described in the Roadmap whilst racking up the points on the first Arcade Mode character.

    22Lff65e1Power Smash! Gold
    Hit 250 smashes

    To hit a smash try and get your opponent to attempt a lob and then press  – This is usually done by net play.
