Marina Erakovic was the player who went skydiving, at Skydive Spaceland in Clewiston on Thursday.
Erakovic braced herself for the thrill of a lifetime as she got ready to jump out of the plane.
And then, the jump...
Erakovic recently won her first WTA title at Memphis, in the tournament's last year on the tour.
She had been a WTA finalist two times before, at Québec City in 2011 and at Memphis last year.
One of the top doubles teams in the world, Nadia Petrova and Katarina Srebotnik, had a special hit.
Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was one of the two NFL stars, partnering with Petrova.
Another NFL star, Bryant McKinnie - who has taken tennis lessons from Venus Williams - joined them.
