Why Anna?

Confused, well not really, but as to why they are putting Anna and Lleyton on the cover of the new "topspin" game only for Xbox. Anna ad in, is just a money factor, as in they are hoping it sells with her picture there. But funnie thing is, with it being a tennis game, and not a lot of people know how to play tennis, unless you have seriously tried to figure out how, actual tennis players and fans are going to want to buy, and knowing anna isn't at the top right now, hasn't been for so long, its besides the point to even add her on the cover. But hey, i say you learn lessons in life. If it sells it sells, if it doesn't, may you have learned your lesson (and things will just keep looking bad for anna) But I think it would've made more sense to have like Lleyton and Kim than him and Anna

Yes but how many people in the world have heard of and seen Kim Clijsters vs. how many have seen and heard of Anna K ?

Anyway, I suspect most tennis game fans would buy it irrespective of who was on the cover ...

Kim is not even in the game so putting her image on the box would be pointless.

oh come on now, how stupid can u get, seriously. people who know jack about tennis obviously know who Anna is so when they see this game, they're gonna sey hey that's that hot tennis chick, and they might pick it up and play, and besides Anna sells, and nobody outside of tennis fans know who Kim is, and as someone had already mentioned she isnt in the game. the only other female that had a chance of being put on the cover is Hingis but she isn't playing and is supposedly retired, so they went with Anna

Jelena Dokic.Vera Zvonareva.Tatiana Golovin.Mary Pierce.Monica Seles.Martina Hingis.Anna Kournikova
