Virtua Tennis 4, known as Power Smash 4 (パワースマッシュ4) in Japan, is a sports game developed by AM3 and published by Sega for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii and Windows PC. It is the sequel to Virtua Tennis 3, and is the first "main" game in the series to be released directly to home consoles, with the arcade release following later. The game will make use of each console's respective motion peripherals (PlayStation Move, Kinect and Wii MotionPlus).

A PlayStation Vita version titled Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour Edition was released in late 2011 in Japan, and 2012 internationally. There is also an arcade version, though it is unknown which of Sega's hardware will be used to power it.
