New tennis video game WTA-impaired


The Tennis World Tour video game is set to launch May 22.

But as the players tested it out in Madrid Friday, one thing became apparent: there are almost no WTA Tour players on it.


In fact, an awkward moment as world No. 4 Elina Svitolina wanted to play as her own character, except … no.

In all, there are 24 men – headed by Roger Federer, but not Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic – and two legends (Agassi and McEnroe). 

Total number of women? Five, including Genie Bouchard.

We won’t talk about the 2017-vintage mismatched Nike green outfits.
