For all your tennis needs, it’s Virtua Tennis 4

Tennis Age: Origins anyone?

So that’s some famous tennis guy up there, his sports face immortalized in one of Virtua Tennis 4’s artsy/craftsy splash screens. These screens appear in the gently pastel opening cinematic while some sort of chick rock/folk/pop song plays. Think Edie Brickell. I don’t know why anyone would want to show off his sports face. It’s not a pretty face. Way back when, while playing the original Virtua Tennis with some friends, one of my buddies observed that Pioline looked like he was getting a blow job. Which he didn’t. He looked more like he was being punched in the stomach. This spoke volumes about my friend’s past experiences with oral sex.

Wait, what? Anyway, thumbs up.
