It seems serving with a blindfold is not easy at all.

After reigning French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko failed big time, doubles specialist Elina Vesnina took up the challenge.

And guess what, she too ceased to impress.

As can be seen in a YouTube video posted by WTA, the four-time Grand Slam champion in doubles failed to make connection between ball and racket multiple times. One occasion even saw the ball fall over her head.

Vesnina, however, someone managed to connect one, even as the serve went on to land wide.

No wonder, she was quick to label her performance ‘quite bad.’

“I know it was quite bad, but it’s not easy at all. Two times I hit the ball, and once the ball went the other side [of the net].

Meanwhile, Vesnina is currently in Spain for the Mutua Madrid Open, where she will be teaming up countrywoman Ekaterina Makarova for the doubles event. The duo has a bye in the first round.
