We all saw how good a player Dominika Cibulkova is at this year’s Wimbledon Championships. The Slovak tennis star stunned the likes of Agnieszka Radwanska and Eugenie Bouchard en route the quarter-finals at the All England Club.

However, the 27-year-old has been making headlines off the court: she can tell which Grand Slam a tennis ball belongs to just by smelling it.

“I smell things; I like to smell,” she told BBC News. “If you give me ball from the US Open and balls from the Roland Garros, I’ll tell you this is this one and this is this.”

Astoundingly, she got it all right. Blindfolded, Cibulkova guessed the balls from Wimbledon, Australian Open and Roland Garros before the host decided to not surprise himself further.

No wonder, the girl’s got some supernatural talent!
