The officially sanctioned AO Tennis game is due for release next week, and we finally have some snippets of gameplay footage.

Aussie champ Thanasi Kokkinakis is just one of the big names who’s been scanned into the game for realism’s sake – and we get to see his reaction to seeing himself digitised.

More exciting for some will be seeing some glimpses of the gameplay. After all, you can have the biggest roster and all the tweaks and customisations in the world, but if the main game looks iffy then it’s all for nought.

Speaking of the roster, the first player announcements are out, with more to come via free DLC in the weeks/months following release.

– Rafael Nadal
– David Goffin
– Kevin Anderson
– Thanasi Kokkinakis
– John Isner
– Angelique Kerber
– Karolina Pliskova
– Johanna Konta
– Daria Gavrilova
– Agnieszka Radwanska
– Sam Stosur
– Caroline Garcia

AO Tennis releases for PS4 and Xbox One on January 16.
