EA Sports announced that Serena Williams, John McEnroe and Roger Federer will appear on the North American cover of "Grand Slam Tennis."

This makes Serena Williams the first female athlete to ever grace the cover of an EA Sports title.

"It's very exciting to be on the cover of EA Sports "Grand Slam Tennis." This game not only shows EA's enthusiasm for tennis but for also women's tennis," said Williams. "I know from experience how tough and gratifying it is to win all four Grand Slams so I hope people will enjoy the Grand Slam experience that is offered in this game."

"Grand Slam Tennis" for the Wii ships to stores in North America on June 15th with a fall release scheduled for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
