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.

  1. Why can't we have a series of professional tennis players playing against each other in Mario tennis? I'd pay money to see Federer play against Nadal

  2. He's low key not a professional tennis player yet – he's a bit worse than ranked professionals but he has the potential to get ranked in the near future – Don't hate just bringing in some insight haha 🙈

  3. He’s far from a professional, at most average…. He never even won pro level match (or made competitive) at the lowest level. Look up his ITF and ATP profiles if you don’t believe me.

  4. Why a casual gamer? Probably would've been a more even match if Jens had been facing a pro. Still someone else new to the game, but at least a pro gamer.

  5. Who the hell is Jens Sweany? I’m a massive tennis fan and I know almost everyone on the ATP tour but I haven’t heard of Jens Sweany

  6. australians are the best because they can be famous and still be funny and makes jokes cause they know they are humans as well and not gods

  7. Man, you should DEFINITELY do professional army veterans playing Rainbow Six Siege, it's the most real simulation they will ever have
