Top Spin to serve Lleyton Hewitt

That's, er, top spin, Microsoft

Microsoft has announced that Lleyton Hewitt, some sort of professional tennis player (I know), will adorn their game of the same sport. Mr. Hewitt has apparently won two grand slams in his time, and will feature alongside tennis legend Michael Chang and another as-yet unnamed player on the game's cover.

"It is truly an honour to be selected by Microsoft Game Studios as a Top Spin cover athlete," Hewitt said. We don't think he understands how this works. "The key to a great tennis game is allowing fans to feel what it's like to be on the court and play against the world's best. Microsoft has done it with Top Spin," he added.

As regular readers will know, Top Spin is MS Game Studios' internally developed tennis title, set to include 16 real-life tennis professionals, all sorts of world rankings and the now perhaps obligatory Xbox Live play.
