Ryan Davis of GameSpot gave the game a 7.5/10, stating "PlayStation 2 owners should find plenty to like about Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament 2.". IGN's Ed Lewis gave it a solid 8.0/10, giving the closing comment of "Overall, it still isn't the best thing out there, but it's definitely a solid update and holds rather strongly by itself." One specific criticism of the game was that when entering the Davis-Cup styled 'World Tournament' as a player from a small nation, no realistic name generator was available for partners and other team members.

Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament 2 was a best-selling game, going platinum. Another tennis video game was released by Namco exclusive to Europe called Roland Garros 2005. It used the same engine as this game.
