Nintendo Gives Gamers A Chance To Play 'Wii Tennis' Against Novak Djokovic


Posted January 8, 2009 - By r_pad

Nintendo has announced a cool promotion for tennis' first grand slam of the year, the Australian Open. In addition to hosting a Nintendo Lounge during the event, the company is holding a contest that will give one lucky winner a chance to face off with tennis pro Novak Djokovic in Wii Sports. The promotional site states:

"Have you got what it takes to defeat the defending Australian Open Champion, Novak Djokovic? We are giving you the chance to see if you can beat Novak Djokovic on tennis on Wii Sports. Novak, is currently ranked No. 3 tennis player in the world and won the Australian Open in 2008. He returns to Australia in 2009 to defend his crown. Nintendo are excited to be able to provide fans with the opportunity to play against Novak, and visit the tennis!"

I'm pretty darn excited to "visit the tennis" too! *snicker* If you want to play tennis with "The Djoker", you must be a resident of Australia or New Zealand. If you fall under that classification then you have to whip up 25 words or less on why you should be the one that plays against him. It's a pretty cool promotion, but I wish it were global. I'd love to be able to go to the Australian Open and I'm sure many of you would too.

And one more thing: Aussie Aussie Aussie!!! (Hopefully some of you know the proper response.)
