Legendary freak-out tennis player John McEnroe to be featured in the upcoming EA SPORTS Grand Slam.
One of the greatest tennis players of all-time, John 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.
Specifically designed for the Wii, EA SPORTS Grand Slam Tennis puts the racket in the palm of your hand and delivers the deepest tennis experience. Users will feel like they are actually playing tennis, performing real forehands and backhands in their living rooms. The game is one of the first to be compatible with Wii MotionPlus, which enhances the one-to-one motion with added shot depth and precise ball placement.
The EA SPORTS Grand Slam game is being developed under the EA SPORTS brand by EA Canada in Vancouver, B.C. It will be available first for the Wii and ships to North American retailers on June 16th, 2009 for $49.95.
