Damir Dzumhur and Miomir Kecmanovic traded tennis rackets for a mini basketball as they took part in Association of Tennis Professionals’ (ATP) basketball challenge.

The rules were quite different: A successful shot must be copied by the opponent. If the opponent fails, he gets a letter. And, the one who gets to letters A-T-P first, ends up on the losing side.

The duo had to take different positions to test their skills: standing up, lying down, on the knees and even throwing underarm.

And, there was only one winner in the end: 18-year-old Kecmanovic. The Serbian just had an A to his name as Dzumhur went on to collect an A-T-P.

“I’m clearly showing better skills right now. Big win for us (NextGen). I hope we can show the now-generation we are coming,” he said in a video posted by the ATP World Tour on YouTube.

Dzumhur, who is currently partaking at the Monte Carlo Masters, applauded his effort that went in vain. “I tried my best,” he said.
