Vesnina & Raonic: I'm On A Boat

Elena Vesnina and Milos Raonic visited a multi-million dollar racing boat at the Portugal Open. They were both invited to climb the 28-meter-high mast - did they do it?

OEIRAS, Portugal - WTA star Elena Vesnina and ATP World Tour star Milos Raonic had a very special day out at the Portugal Open in Oeiras on Monday, heading over to the beautiful waterside for a tour of Team Alvimedica's multi-million dollar boat, which will be racing around the world later this year.

Vesnina and Raonic were shown around the boat by crew members and invited to climb the mast as well. And to prove that Team Alvimedica makes your heart beat faster, they wore heart monitors when they climbed that mast - here's the raw data from both of their heart monitors in beats per minute...

Vesnina
on deck - 82hb
first mast spreaders - 108hb
second mast spreaders - 117hb
third mast spreaders - 133hb
top of the mast - 150 hb

Raonic
on deck - 78hb
first mast spreaders - 100hb
second mast spreaders - 122hb
third mast spreaders - 135hb
top of the mast - 140 hb

Vesnina is the No.8 seed at this year's Portugal Open and begins her campaign on Tuesday against French qualifier Kristina Mladenovic. Raonic is seeded No.2 in the men's event and starts with a bye.
