Fans will soon be playing one of the most realistic-looking tennis video games out there, AO Tennis. Thanasi Kokkinakis got to be part of the process, lending his face and body movements to the game. 

"It does look like me," he said. "That is nuts!"

The game will feature the likes of Angelique Kerber, Rafael Nadal, Karolina Pliskova, John Isner, Daria Gavrilova, Samantha Stosur and a lot more.

Set to launch on January 16 (Day 2 of the Australian Open), it is available for pre-order on Play Station 4 and Xbox One.
