Default Mario Tennis rating is broken..

This has happened to me four times in a row now. If I win an online intense match even if I didn't let the other person get a single point I still lose rating. Does anyone know why it does this?

Default Not sure

I thought it worked based on the stats at the end (Smash Wins, Foul Serves, Aces and Return Wins) and yours and your opponent's ratings. Because when I win and lose rating, it's normally because I didn't get any Aces/return wins, but my opponent got a few and had lower rating than me.

It seems to know how well you're doing, because I always win loads when I completely smash the opponent and only win a little/lose some if I just scrape a win.

But if you say you didn't even let them get a point against you and you still lost some, I can only guess that they had such a low rating compared to yours that it was impossible to win any. Which means it would be broken.

Sorry for the cryptic answer, it's only because I'm not too sure how it works either. It has seemed to work fine for me at the moment, since when I lost rating for a win, I knew I was playing badly.
