It's not every day you see a short, mustachioed plumber run No.1 world-ranked men's tennis player Rafael Nadal around the court. 

But in the new trailer for Mario Tennis Aces, out Thursday, Mario does exactly that-- for a little while, at least. Ultimately, Mario hits the ball out of bounds. Nadal doesn't have 16 Grand Slam singles for nothing. 

A word of advice, Mario: It's all about controlling the ball. 

Mario Tennis Aces will be available on Nintendo Switch June 22.
