Tennis champs baseline-up for Virtua Tennis PSP

Fourteen real-life pros to make a racket in Sega's PSP port

Sega has announced that fourteen real-life pros will slip into their tournament whites and appear in the PSP port of classic sports sim Virtua Tennis, subtitled World Tour.

Heading the roster are three-time Wimbledon champions Roger Federer and Venus Williams. Also included are Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt, Lindsay Davenport, Tim Henman, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Tommy Haas, Sebastien Grosjean, David Nalbandian, Daniela Hantuchova, Amelie Mauresmo, and Nicole Vaidisova.

Pervy short skirt-watchers won't be disappointed either - Maria Sharapova is also included, so we'll finally be able to answer the question that plagues us every Wimbledon: is she really that fit, or is she just an average lassie with nice legs surrounded by a sea of munters?


Plus, you'll be able to create your own grunting tennis star using the Create-A-Player mode and then progress through the ranks in World Tour Mode. Along the way you'll be able to up your skills with brilliant training minigames like Blockbuster and Balloon Smash.

We got hands-on with Virtua Tennis: World Tour at May's E3 and can report that it's every bit as good as the classic Dreamcast version. And with four-player wireless LAN play promised, this could be the ultimate PSP sports game.

Virtua Tennis: World Tour will be available for PSP this Autumn. Enjoy the screens, and don't bother zooming in to try and catch a glimpse of Maria's undercrackers, you mucky pup.

We've already tried and it doesn't work.
