MarioPowerTennis-GC ToadToadetteTennis.png

In the introduction sequence when Wario and Waluigi look at the big scoreboard, you can see Toad and Toadette on the first part to the left on the scoreboard. Toad and Toadette are unplayable in the game so it's possible that they were intended to be playable at one point.
