Date Kimiko no Virtual Tennis (伊達公子のバーチャルテニス?, "Date Kimiko's Virtual Tennis") is a tennis video game released for the Super Famicom that simulates the world of professional women's tennis. It was endorsed by the Japanese professional tennis player Kimiko Date.


The final results of a typical match are presented as a news article.

The object is to become one of the best female tennis players; like Date Kimiko. In the world tournament mode, there is an elaborate story line to participate in as the player tries to become the world's most premier tennis champ.[6]

In addition to the world tournament mode, there is also an exhibition and a "normal" tournament mode. Passwords using Japanese characters are required to resume a player's progress within the course of the world tournament. Tournaments themselves are ranked in a series of letter grades to help determine the strength of the opponents.

The level system in order from lowest to highest is: E (mediocre), D (below average), C (average), B (good), A (excellent), and finally S (super). There is a chance that clouds can bring rain which delays matches; causing both of the players' stamina meters to fully recharge themselves.
