We got chance to catch up with Toby Allen, Virtua Tennis 2009 Producer, and Kenton Fletcher, one of the game's designers. We touch on a whole array of talking points during the interview ranging from the yearly serialisation of sports titles, the competition, what's new this year and even Balls of Fury. It's a long one folks, so grab a drink ... and a tent and brace yourselves.

Kenton Fletcher: Well World Tour for a start. We've put a massive amount of focus into making that a huge experience split up into amateur and professional tours. We've got 500 new custom players. New events all over the place, the charity cup..."
