Video: As the U.S. Open tennis tournament winds up, Matt and Savannah go head-to-head to test out their tennis prowess with the help of the defending U.S. Open champs Andy Murray and Serena Williams.

The 2012 U.S. Open tennis championships are underway but before a winner is declared, Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer played a match with two of the sport's biggest names — Serena Williams and Andy Murray. 

The champions took a break from the pressure of a high-stakes match and had some fun playing with two slightly less intense opponents.
