Tennis stars Daniil Medvedev and Marcos Baghdatis accepted the famous ‘Audi Challenge’ this week at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.

Marcos wanted the upper advantage and went to the top of the stadium to hit the balls even though he is afraid of heights! Daniil however, took the safer approach and stayed on the first level. “For me it was tough at the beginning, I didn’t put one in and then at one moment I put four in a row!”

The official scorers – the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship ball kids announced that both players scored 18 points and shared the trophy!
