Here's a comparison.
Tournament mode: Grand Slam wins by a kilometer --- In Grand Slam Tennis you play the Grand Slam tour and do some exhibitions. No stupid "shopping races" like in Virtua Tennis. This part of Virtua Tennis is highly annoying. I don't want to run around a court on a shopping spree and jump through arbitrary hoops in order to play in a tournament. This part of Virtua was so annoying it took Virtua from 5 stars to 4 stars for me. Grand Slam exhibitions / mini games are fun while Virtua is annoying. On the other hand, you can just press "play" and choose tournament in Virtua but the experience is not as full as Grand Slam.
Graphics: Virtua Tennis wins by a meter. The crowd is better and players movement's are much more realistic to the player's style. Grand Slam's graphics are more cartoonish but with the announcers and the angles and replays it is more like participating in a match while you watch it on television... the presentation is better but does not make up for the better Virtua movement and detail.
Speed of play: Virtua Tennis by a kilometer. Your character moves at a more realistic pace and the match is just a more entertaining, fast action pace.
Controls: Grand Slam by a centimeter: Grand Slam's controls are easier to master. Virtua's controls have less tolerance for error. You MUST complete the training coach with Virtua to master any advanced shots, even then the drop shot leaves me wanting to smash the controller! Grand Slam's topspin, backspin, and fade are more true to real tennis, while Virtua's serve, lob, and dropshot are much more true.Read more ›

I loved the Wii Sports Tennis and spent hours and hours playing, but always wished there was more to it. Virtua Tennis is the answer to my prayers. First off, the graphics are really beautiful. You have a choice of places to play like New York, Paris, Melbourne and others. The players look and move like real people. Not that I'm knocking those cute little Mii's but you know what I mean. There are lots of characters to choose from if you want to just play online matches or you can start your own career in the World Tour. You select a basic character to start and then refine their looks with a whole bunch of different options. You actually have quite a bit of control over the way they look and this "me" looks like a real person. Then you have a bunch of options to train and develop your player and enter tournaments around the world while you move up (hopefully!) in rankings, pushing to become Number 1.Read more ›
Give yourself time to get used to the motionplus. If you are used to just having to flick your wrist and do a killer shot as you could for the first wii tennis games, you will soon realize that form does matter here. And that's a good thing. Like a real tennis game, how you hold the racket and position yourself and move makes a lot of difference and the motionplus, like magic, picks it all up.
It brings realism into the tennis game.
Give it a day and you'll realize how tremendous the motionplus is.
That said, I agree with tbe other reviewer who stated you MUST complete the training section in order to master the controls. And I also agree that it seemed like I mastered them easier playing Grand Slam tennis.It's worth it.
For the non-tennis buff vs. the expert: We have both in this household. One loved the shopping mode during tournaments because it added fun to it, the expert did not and just wanted pure tennis. You can turn that off but it's a positive if you are still learning the game or want a little more added to it.
The graphics are better in this than Grand Slam. Grand Slam's players are a bit like Speed Racer cartoons...you get who they are but they aren't as real as this. This denotes further realism.Read more ›
