Not a lot of games are easy to get all of their trophies and achievements. However, AO Tennis is a game where it’s doable. This is mainly because you can rig games with 2 players instead of having to rely on beating the A.I.
Many of the first trophies are easy to get. These include the ones where you have to get an ace, dropshot, serve over 200 km/h and more. These are straightforward and you don’t need anymore advice on them.
An interesting addition is “Denied” which is where you lose a challenged decision from the Umpire. To get this, you basically have to press R2 and L2 (Left and Right Triggers) to challenge a point after a rally has finished. If your challenge is wrong, you get the trophyachievement.
The opposite of this is a successful challenge called “You Cannot Be Serious!”. I got this when the Umpire called my serve was out, but it managed to clip the line. This one is slightly harder to get than “Denied” but it’s still doable.
Some other trophies/achievements you need to win in the Australian Open mode. This can include the singles and doubles tournaments, plus playing as cover stars Rafael Nadal and Angelique Kerber also gets you trophies/achievement. The best way to win the Australian Open is to put the A.I. in Rookie mode and play for one set only to make things go faster. Rookie mode is so easy and there’s no way you can lose.
Additional trophies you will need to rig by using two players to make things easier. This includes “Bagelled” where you have to win a set 6-0. Just make one player win all of the time. There is one called “Tie Fighter” where you have to win a match in a tie-break. Again, you and a friend can rig this by letting both of you get 6-6 to initiate a tie-break then letting player 1 win.
One of the longest trophies/achievements to attain is “Comeback Kid”. This is where you have to beat your opponent in five sets after dropping the first two sets. To do this easily, player 2 can be two sets up and then you let player 1 catch up and win in five sets. Unless a new update changes this, you don’t need to be against the A.I. to attain most trophies/achievements in AO Tennis.
There are some trophies/achievements that are cumulative meaning that it will take a bit of time to get them. This includes the ones where you have to get a specific number of aces, winners, backhand winners and forehand winners. Just playing the game long enough will allow you to get these.
Lastly, we get to the two hardest trophies/achievements called “Rallying” and “Run Around”. I used two players for these tasks again because it’s hard to get them with the unreliable A.I. In “Rallying”, player 1 and player 2 have to get a 72 shot (or over) rally going. The easiest way to do is is when top spin shots and place it in the middle so it’s easy for you to hit the ball to each other.
“Run Around” is essentially the same strategy, although you may want to be both Rafael Nadals and place the ball side-to-side so that both players are running all of the time. It takes a bit of practice, but the longer a really goes the more meters you will run to get this trophy/achievement.
Anyway, I hope this will give you some help in order to attain the trophies/achievements in AO Tennis. If you want to see the full list, you can click here to visit PlayStationTrophies.org.
