    Funny to hear that his kids aren't into tennis.

    It's like he'll come home and say....."Boys, here's a Wii. Lemme hook it up. Oh by the way, in this new game, I'm in it."

    I like this interview it is nice that someone is not asking Pete about the annoying GOAT statement and is just asking about stuff he is doing. Now I also want to check out this game.

    Yeah, that's funny that they don't follow tennis. I guess dad didn't go out of his way to make it "cool" for the kids. Until now. Since Wii is mainly for younger kids as opposed to PS3 and Xbox which is for the older, hardcore gamer. They might get into tennis now because of this game and with the whole Wii sensor controller thingie.

    I saw an interview with Chris Evert on the Yes Network in which she mentioned her kids weren't into tennis either and she had to drag them onto the court.
