Professional Tennis Player Tries Mario Tennis Aces • Pro Play


– Let’s put something on it, shall we?
If we can get to a court somewhere,
loser is on the service
line and the winner
is going to serve a ball at their bum.
– One hundred percent yes.
(suspenseful music)
– I’m Jens Sweaney,
I’m a pro tennis player
from Australia.
I was top 100 in Australia,
but I moved to L.A.
to play for the USC Trojans.
I’ve toured a couple times overseas.
France, and Spain,
playing pro tournaments.
– I’m Brendan Dahle,
and I’m a casual gamer.
I play video games every now and then.
One of my favorite games of all time
is Virtua Tennis for the
SEGA Dreamcast, baby.
I used to spend hours
crushing that world tour.
I feel like that has
prepared me for this moment.
– About my lack of video game experience,
yeah, I’m here, ready to play some tennis.
I think I’ve got this one in the bag.
– What’s up?
– Hello.
– Hi.
– I’m Jens.
– I’m Brendan.
– Nice to meet you.
– This isn’t intimidating at all.
I’m definitely going to be Waluigi.
– I’m gonna go with Yoshi.
(cheering)
(grunts)
– Oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, ah, yeah.
– Get that weak (beeps) out of here.
Oh god this,
Okay.
– A little flat.
– Put a little sauce on that one.
Serve coming in hot.
(grunts)
– Early, hot and early.
– Oh that was out I think.
– No.
– Crowd goes wild.
– Crowd made no noise.
(groans)
Oh did that?
– Oh.
– Oh come on.
– Lob shot window baby,
still serving, I don’t
know how the rules work.
(grunts)
– [Game] Game receiver.
I gave him that first point.
– It’s a game one, one nothing.
– One, the game.
– You’ll pick it up.
It’s fine.
– Yeah.
(Cheers)
So it didn’t, okay.
Go.
(cheers)
ah.
– That’s a spicy meat ball.
That’s pretty good.
I’ll give you that one.
This is close, this is tight.
I’m actually feel, oh
we’re just doing this?
Oh.
– Yes!
(cheers)
So the thing is about the
number of games it’s tied,
’cause I’ve won one as well.
Oh it was out, I
shouldn’t have touched it.
What happened?
Body shot?
– Yeah body shot.
– There are body shots.
Huzzah.
Yeah.
That’s ’cause I put the heater on blast.
Game point again for the Waluigi crew.
(groans)
– Oh that was a big serve.
Yeah well.
– Thank you very much, I appreciate that.
– Get over there, no!
(cheers)
– Maybe not exactly how
you expected this to go.
– I was expecting a little less from you.
I mean I watched YouTube
tutorials on this.
– You and everyone else buddy.
– That was not too good.
– I don’t remember them
saying how to serve?
Was that on there?
Did I skip serving?
– [Jans] Whoa!
– Oh, there’s some spice on that one.
Match point again, oh, match point.
Oh this is too much pressure.
(cheers)
(wails)
– How is three games a match?
Three, one?
– Oh boy, I would like to thank my family.
– Okay a set is six.
– I do feel like you actually knowing how
to play tennis is probably
still a hindrance at this point
’cause you’re trying
to do real tennis stuff
and I’m just swinging around wildly.
So I do feel like,
– Maybe I should
try some of that.
– Hot, hot streak alive.
– [Game] Out.
– You know it’s not about,
– Book it.
– It’s not always about
who wins and loses,
is kind of my point.
Oh shoot.
Okay, you know, again.
That was right up the middle.
That was (grumbles)
I’m trying a new swing called a tomahawk.
So far it’s very effective.
I like it when the star show up
I don’t know what that
means but that feels like,
wait what?
I think I hurt myself.
Oh, oh, I get to throw
a tantrum, yeah I want
to challenge that decision.
That was clearly in, what are you blind?
– Oh it’s out.
– So the thing about it is that,
(laughs)
Wait were am I lining up.
– Toward the net.
– Which way am I
gonna serve it from?
You’ll never know.
I could do it over here,
or switch over here.
(moans)
I call that the sneak attack serve.
It’s a patented tennis
thing that everyone does,
all the pros and then.
– I feel like if I just
do nothing, you’ll lose.
– Okay, that stings a little.
I just did like a lasso.
– Oh that came in hot, okay.
Game, set match?
– Okay, alright.
So it is one to one, this
is it, winner take all.
– Let’s put something on it, shall we?
If we can get to a court somewhere
loser is on the service
line and the winner
is going to serve a ball at their bum.
– 100% yes.
– Tie breaker?
Oh okay, I see, tie
breakers work like you,
you play one point and
then I now serve two
and then you go two and I got two.
And it’s to seven.
– Okay, that was, I did
the thing where you were
supposed to hit it that
way and it hit it that way.
– Oh.
– A little too hot, little too hot.
Okay, so it’s three nothing.
Not a problem, it’s fine.
Yeah.
Ah come on.
– Come on.
Come on.
– Come on.
For, okay.
– Four, zero, baby.
– I can’t go out, I
can’t go out like that.
I can’t go out with a goose egg,
– Well, seven zero, that’s
a nudie run right there.
– A nudie run?
– Yeah, one around the complex.
– Oh no, we didn’t agree to that at all.
– That’s in the laws of tennis.
– Oh.
What?
(laughs)
What?
– Six, O.
No.
Game, set and match.
– Congratulations.
– Hey, thank you very much,
thank you for playing.
– That was unreal.
– Okay, that was pretty
fun, that was a lot of fun.
– Yeah totally.
– I’m proud of myself,
I kept it kind of close
but you were clearly
better at tennis stuff.
– No I mean, I was rubbish.
– No, don’t say that, you were great.
– Some of your little sly
stinks cross court, unreal.
– Yeah, thanks, I had a
couple moments in there.
Was this comparable to real tennis at all?
– Not at all.
– Okay, no.
– Now we did have a little
something one the line.
– Butts up if I recall correctly.
– Yeah.
(laughs)
– You do it.
– You can’t use the racket like that.
– What, I thought that was the point?
– It’s gotta be like just the rim,
you can’t have the whole thing there.
(laughs)
– [Brandon] Do it.
Oh god.
Oh god still going.
Ah.
– That’s one.
– Oh wait there’s more?
Ah,
barely even felt it.
(upbeat music)
You earned it, congratulations.
