How to Defeat King on Hard Difficulty (Arcade Mode)

Pick Nadal (Strong Defense) and just hit towards King's forehand (left side of the screen). Once your "Power Shot" is fully charged, hit a crosscourt winner. Just beat him 2-0, 40 Love on hard using this method.

How does he come out. I beat hard and faced courier 3 times.

There's theories on why he doesn't appear, but I think it has to do with how fast you complete Arcade Mode (look at the timeclock during matches). I got faster each time. He showed up the fifth time I played. I unlocked Duke on my third attempt. Beat King in 3 minutes once I faced him with this strategy. Check PS3trophies.org for theories. They got a good 4 page discussion there just on this issue.

Thanks for the info. One last question: does it have to be on hard or can I get by on easy.

People have said they got King to show up on every difficulty. It's a guessing game right now.

Well I beat easy without losing a point and Duke showed up. I beat normal and lost a point and courier showed up so maybe it has something to do with that.
