Making his videogame debut in EA's new tennis franchise, tennis legend John McEnroe, an enigmatic personality both on and off the court, will headline a roster of some of the sport's all-time greats to be featured in EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis.
Tennis stars John McEnroe, Roger Federer and Serena Williams will be the North American cover athletes for its new tennis franchise, EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis. Eight different regional player partnerships will be announced soon. McEnroe, one of the sport’s most recognizable figures, was recently confirmed as exclusive to the game. Federer and Williams are among the biggest names in tennis and the most accomplished; having won 23 Grand Slam singles titles between them. Williams becomes the first woman to grace the cover of an EA Sports simulation product.
“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.”
One of the greatest tennis players of all-time, McEnroe won seven Grand Slams, including three at Wimbledon, and amassed 77 singles titles. He stopped playing singles on the main ATP tour at the end of 1992 but has remained heavily involved in tennis, playing on seniors tours and providing television commentary for a number of networks at the Grand Slams. McEnroe was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1999. Off the court, he hosted his own talk show and written an autobiography, titled "You Cannot Be Serious", a phrase he made famous through his on-court outbursts during his career.
