Kicking off the 2011 ATP World Tour, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal played the most unique round of tennis ever , in the waters outside of Doha, Qatar.

The tennis stars faced off on a floating court in Doha Bay Sunday, just ahead of the first tournament of the year, the Qatar Open.

The two players were said to have not displayed their regular smashing power as the court was wet. Federer and Nadal only volleyed the tennis ball during the match.
