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...
