[prMac.com] Pune, India - Rolocule today is proud to announce the Top 10 eTennis players of 2015. As top ATP players are set to compete in this year's first Grand Slam - Australian Open in Melbourne, Australia, top eTennis players will also be competing in the first Australia event in the online multiplayer tennis game - Flick Tennis Online. eTennis players wouldn't be required to travel to Australia to participate in tournaments, instead, they would be playing eTennis matches online on iPhone or iPad from anywhere in the world for the prize of 3.5 million and 1.7 million in-game coins, set for winner and runner up, respectively. In 2015, top 10 players played over 46,000 matches and spent about 4000 hours in the game.
eTennis is a form of tennis sport where primary aspects of tennis are facilitated by online multiplayer tennis games like Flick Tennis Online, which allow players to play competitive tennis against each other from anywhere in the world. eTennis players, similar to regular tennis players, require sophisticated skills to compete with each other, which they develop over a period of time with extensive practice and training.
"Flick Tennis Online is designed based on the psychology of tennis legends like Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, etc. because of which the game is able to provide incredibly deep controls that directly map to regular tennis. eTennis players have to make quick decisions during eTennis matches which include shot choices and direction, their movement on court, among many other things, similar to regular tennis" said Rohit Gupta, CEO of Rolocule Games, developers of Flick Tennis Online.
eTennis is a part of eSports - also known as competitive gaming, electronic sports or professional gaming - a type of video game competition where professional players battle for the highest rank and top prize. eSports is gaining momentum with each passing day with eSports market set to reach $1.9 billion by 2019 from $748 million in 2015, according to market research firm SuperData. With eSports viewership reported to reach 188 million in 2015, pro players and various teams are gaining celebrity status and hordes of followers similar to regular sports; and giant brands like Coca-Cola, Red Bull, American Express, Intel and Samsung are vying to sponsor. The 2014 League of Legends championship was viewed by more than 27 million people when broadcast on ESPN. These numbers eclipsed the audiences for both game seven of last year's baseball World Series (23.5 million viewers) and the decider of 2014's NBA Finals (18 million).
Moreover, winners of eSports tournaments are already making millions and getting famous. The International 2015 Dota 2 Championship had a prize pool of over $18 million, making it the largest ever for a single tournament. eSports has grown so big that players now qualify for the application of US P-1 Visa, a type of visa that's long been reserved for professional athletes.
