Tennis sensation Rafa Nadal may have found a doubles partner in the Nintendo DS, but that doesn't mean he isn't also playing with others. The net pro, who is already getting his own portable tennis game in Rafa Nadal Tennis, will also be featured in the upcoming PlayStation Portable game Smash Court Tennis 3, which was just announced.

The game will be published by Namco Bandai and is the next edition of the series following a pair of PlayStation 2 games and a PlayStation title. Joining Nadal will be 15 other tennis pros, including Roger Federer and Justine Henin.

The PSP game will feature more customization than its console predecessors, as well as a few minigames and arcade, exhibition, and pro tour modes. Multiplayer support includes wireless ad hoc play as well as head-to-head matches using the game-sharing system.
