I can't speak from too much experience with this game but it seems pretty darn excellent in most respects. In the distant past I've played a little single-player and found it incredibly challenging: the AI seems quite capable of covering every angle on the court, and taking advantage in the slightest opening allowed it. It is killer, really killer.
Played some multiplayer women's doubles yesterday and had quite a time. The game is so smooth in control, pacing, movement, animation and graphics (aside from rather mottled skin tones) that I don't see how anyone could possibly dislike it. It can move incredibly quickly and you have to be on your toes at all times, yet the control is so easy and intuitive that you'll find yourself pulling off moves of which you wouldn't have thought yourself possible. This game makes me feel like a tennis pro in the comfort of my own living room.

Having played the Virtua Tennis 3 demo on PS3, I find myself coming back to the DC version of the second, and liking it more. The more electronically oriented music in the DC edition is way better than the electric guitar of the VT3 demo, as far as I'm concerned, and it seems like they've dumbed the difficulty of the newer one down considerably. Heck, the 2k2 also just seems to have snappier control.
