2K Sports today announced the lineup for their upcoming Top Spin 3 title for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii and DS. The usual suspects you see out on the courts when USA Network decides to show some tennis action will be on hand. Roger Federer, Andy Roddick and Maria Sharapova – among others – make an appearance. Interestingly 2K Sports is saying that Rafael Nadal will only be appearing on the PS3 version of the game.

Is Top Spin getting console specific characters like Namco’s Soul Calibur series so enjoys? Hey maybe we’ll see a non-sequitar of a character in TS3 like David Ortiz. I'm sure the real reason is far less exciting. My dreams of a Sharapova vs Scarlett Johansson match have been dashed.

Also joining this year’s lineup are three legendary tennis players. Boris Beck, Bjorn Borg and Monica Seles all make their debut in a video game with Top Spin 3. ”Boris Becker, Bjorn Borg and Monica Seles have given the game of tennis such great history, and we are excited to have them join the current roster of professionals in the most realistic tennis video game to date,” said Chris Snyder, Director of Marketing for 2K Sports in a press release today.

Top Spin 3 puts players on the most famous courts in the world, from the Roland Garros to the Rod Laver Arena you’ll have plenty of opportunity to perfect a backhand. The game is set to release in the spring of 2008. Check out the roster below, and don’t forget to surreptitiously glance at those nice screenshots we have in the gallery below. Go ahead, we won’t tell.
