Linux? Chances are you've never suffered from Tennis Elbow???

If you've ever woken up in the morning with a hankering for a Tennis simulation on Linux, you've certainly been disappointed each time. Until now, the only simulation we???ve ever heard of ??? and the only one Google has ever heard of ??? is Free Tennis. Free Tennis has not been updated since 2005, while I???ve not seen any complaints about it, it does leave a lot to be desired in the graphics department. Players looking to whack a can-opener or a flat-liner against the opposition will instantly be disappointed by the 1995-era Sega Sports style presentation. Players square-off on a rotating rectangle and perform their best moves as a series of sprite animations. Enter Tennis Elbow 2013. Like most indie applications, its name is punny, light hearted and should not be taken seriously. Though thankfully, the graphics make a turn for the better and take on more of a Dreamcast Sega-Sports feel ???think Tennis 2K2.
