EA Sports revealed today that, like Fight Night Round 4, Grand Slam Tennis will feature multiple athletes on its cover. Tennis pros John McEnroe, Roger Federer and Serena Williams will appear on the game's packaging in North America and other select territories.

By having both young (Williams, Federer) and old (McEnroe) players on the cover, EA's making sure that the game will catch the eye of a wide range of gamers. Williams, by the way, is the first female athlete to grace the cover of an EA Sports product. McEnroe will appear exclusively in Grand Slam.

This is the first installment of the Grand Slam series. It will debut on the Wii on June 15th in North America. It will ship to retailers in the United Kingdom, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Spain and Australia on June 12th and the rest of the world will get it June 26th. Xbox 360 and PS3 versions will be released in the fall.
