Serena Williams sure knows how to swing a tennis racket, but it turns out those skills don’t translate to axe-throwing.

In a “Tonight Show” segment, the tennis superstar took on host Jimmy Fallon in an axe-throwing competition.

Both struggled with their first attempts – Fallon’s actually bounced off the target, while Williams managed to miss it completely.

Finally, in her third try Williams nailed the throw earning five points, but Fallon won the comp with 10.

Williams later chatted with the “Saturday Night Live” alum about her husband Alexis Ohanian and her new HBO docu-series “Becoming Serena”.
