Tennis star Venus Williams goes wireless with MForma deal

MUMBAI: This is an alliance that gives tennis fans a chance to hit aces and down the line winners on their mobiles. The MForma Group which provides wireless entertainment and Grand Slam tennis champion Venus Williams have joined forces. This is for the Williams World Tennis which will be brought to mobile phones in the US.



In the game players match their skills against increasingly tougher opponents. Through a series of tournaments where you improve your skills and enhance your ranking at each step, you play against several opponents, including Venus, who possess varying levels of power, speed, and technique. As you win each match, you can reach higher and higher difficulty levels. The game also features a practice mode, where you can hone your skills before competing, and a multiplayer network ranking system, where you can upload your overall ranking and compete against other players.

Williams was quoted in a company release saying, " "The reaction when hitting the tennis ball is remarkably smooth, and I love the grunts and groans you hear on the difficult shots. MForma has done a great job on this one. I think fans are really going to enjoy it."

Williams World Tennis is the latest release in MForma's new mobile sports product line, which is designed to appeal to the significant fan interest in the accomplishments of celebrity athletes. MForma's mobile sports products also incorporate advanced game features, such as real-time multiplayer capability, in-game chat, high score uploading, and the ability to download additional levels and prizes, such as ringtones or graphics.
