Virtua Tennis 2, known as Power Smash 2 (パワースマッシュ2) in Japan, is the direct sequel to Virtua Tennis. It was developed by Hitmaker and published by Sega in 2001 for Sega NAOMI arcade hardware as either a ROM board or a GD-ROM before being brought to the Sega Dreamcast and later PlayStation 2.

Virtua Tennis builds on the gameplay found in its predecessor, and adds the option to play as female professional tennis players and mixed doubles matches. It is compatible with the PlayStation 2's multi-tap peripheral, allowing for four players to play at once.

History

In North America, the title of the Dreamcast game is Tennis 2K2, carrying the Sega Sports license. This was done so that the names matched with other sports games published by Sega, including World Series Baseball 2K2 and NFL 2K2. As the PlayStation 2 version was released in the second half of 2002, the game was simply renamed Tennis, as it would have appeared outdated in a matter of months. The PS2 version also exchanges Jelena Dokić of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia for Ai Sugiyama of Japan.
