A bunch of bananas proved to be a greater challenge for tennis pro Denis Shapovalov than his opponent at the Australian Open on Monday.

As the 18-year-old Canadian was cruising to a straight-set, first-round victory over Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas, he tried to peel several bananas courtside, failing each time.

It looked like a modern vaudeville act.

Finally, the flustered Shapovalov was able to pry one open, and he clenched his fist in victory.

"I think I played extremely well today," Shapovalov told news outlets.

But your snacking game needs work, kid.
