“We’re thrilled to have two of the most exciting tennis players representing our game,” stated Erik Whiteford, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports.  “Roger Federer is by far the most talented and dominant men’s tennis player in the game today.  Maria Sharapova’s power, competitive drive and tenacity have established her as one of the most important and visible players on the women’s tour.  Both players exhibit the winning attitude of great tennis champions, making them a natural choice to represent the best tennis video game.”<o:p></o:p>
