With the end of this year's championships at Wimbledon, EA Sports hands out some new screens for Grand Slam Tennis featuring only two players - the champs of the men's and ladies' singles: Roger Federer and Serena Williams. Both are multiple grand-slammers, both amazing athletes, and both share the boxart with Johnny Mac. Was that another EA prediction? If so, they totally nailed that one.
Having won Wimbledon twice before, Serena Williams is definitely one of the greatest that the WTA has ever seen. It's been more than 10 years since we first saw her and her sister Venus, and together they revolutionized the women's tennis scene, and both of them are still strong contenders every year. Quite a feat.
Roger, on the other hand, captured his 15th grand slam title, beating Pete Sampras' record of 14. Amazing final match too, having to take it over a stellar Andy Rod**** who took the fifth set to a distance that seriously cut my sleep the other day. Poor Andy, but Roger still came out on top. Now back at his World #1 throne, Roger is now the most successful tennis player to ever live - that and he's just a monster on the court.
To Roger and Serena, congrats. To Andy, hats off to your best Wimbledon effort to date.
