Hard one this one! Best I could manage was a 15-6 loss on the second losing set. Missed the screenshot at the end so couldn't take a pic of my defeat on my a3000.

What a frustrating experience, and hard on the controller!  Game seemed to either not respond when I wanted it to, or jumped (while I was running up to get the ball) instead of passing, and terrible frame rate.  I love the concept of this game but it is so difficult to control and AI is just punishing.  Might be more fun in 2 or 4 player, but against the CPU it is too frustrating to enjoy.
My score was also a loss 15-06 in the second.
Played single player on my A2000.
