Grand Slam Tennis Cover Features Tennis Star Triple Play

Instead of focusing on just one athlete for the cover of Grand Slam Tennis for the Wii, EA plasters three of the biggest names in tennis across the front of the box.

In one fell swoop, EA has taken my cumulative knowledge of tennis and condensed it neatly into a game cover. John McEnroe, Roger Federer and Serena Williams are the three tennis players that I know. McEnroe because he yells at people, places and things; Serena Williams because she is Serena Williams; and Roger Federer because he taught me how to shave. Serena gushes.

"It's very exciting to be on the cover of EA SPORTS Grand Slam Tennis. This game not only shows EA's enthusiasm for tennis but for also women's tennis," said Williams. "I know from experience how tough and gratifying it is to win all four Grand Slams so I hope people will enjoy the Grand Slam experience that is offered in this game."

Okay, so she doesn't quite gush. Tennis players tend to save their aggression for the courts I suppose. Except of course for McEnroe. He's exclusive to the game, and if you don't like it I'm sure he can come up with a few choice words for you.
