It takes a lot of guts to emulate the tennis tricks of Frenchman Gael Monfils. But, former women’s World No. 1 Victoria Azarenka not only did so with finesse, but also took it to social media to share the try-to-be-like video.

Gearing up for the grass-court season, the 25-year-old carved up a clip on her official Instagram account, where she’s seen committed to hit a tweener – one of the most difficult shots in the sport, performed by facing the back side of the net and sneaking a hit in between the legs.

As this shot is popularly played by Monfils, Azarenka made sure that the former gets sourced in her caption, which read: “Practicing @iamgaelmonfils tricks #grass#season#comingsoon (sic).

Following an appalling 2014 season, Azarenka has had a decent year so far with a win-loss record of 21-8. Recently, she made it to the third round of the prestigious French Open 2015, before going down fighting to eventual winner Serena Williams in three sets.
