When you've got a game called Grand Slam Tennis, of course it's gonna be all about the Slams! This trailer from Electronic Arts will now take us a tour of the four Grand Slam events in the ATP and WTA tours, featuring the courts and grand stages of the epic Grand Slam matches, plus a few interesting matchups along the way. Just as the French Open heats up in Roland Garros right now.
For the Australian Open we've got who appears to be Novak Djokovic getting beat by a player who I can't recognize. They could've showed the face just a tiny bit more. Anyway, the Williams Sisters fight it out in Flushing Meadows, while Bjorn Borg and Johnny-Mac star in a retro matchup in Wimbledon.
But the most notable matchup shown in the vid is the one with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the French Open. Two clips showed Federer making two winners past Nadal, then the customary handshake in the end, with a disappointed-looking Rafa. Another "prediction" from EA Sports, maybe? They got the Pacquiao-Hatton fight right in the Fight Night trailer, will they get this one too?
The last time Roger and Rafa played each other was earlier this month in finals of the Madrid Masters - a clay court just like the French and the surface in which Nadal is nearly invincible. Roger won that one, 6-4, 6-4. As for now, Nadal has just advanced to the fourth round with a victory over Lleyton Hewitt, while Federer will take on Paul-Henri Mathieu to advance.
Who's your bet for the French?
