It's Happy Slappy time! Coco Gauff and Taylor Townsend star in Tortilla Challenge
Laughs were plentiful in Atlanta when the two Americans participated in the popular TikTok game.

Coco Gauff and Taylor Townsend got in on Tiktok's popular Tortilla Challenge Sunday night, and it was everything.
The basic rules:
Step 1: Fill mouths with water
Step 2: Rock, paper, scissors commences
Step 3: Winner slaps opponent with tortilla
Whomever spits out their water first loses, and the three steps are repeated until a winner emerges.
In Atlanta for night one of two women’s exhibitions, the pair of Americans were up for the task. Gauff’s rock beat Townsend’s scissors, but no one was prepared for the 18-year-old's commitment to the slap.
Immediately after her tortilla struck, Townsend’s water came out with a roaring laugh. She exclaimed multiple times, “Oh my god!”
“That was a biggggg slap,” a producer said off camera. Responded Gauff, “She said slap me! I don’t know, I’ve seen Kevin Hart do this.”
Townsend got a shot at revenge with paper proving useful, and soon went with a much lighter approach. The tactic worked, as Gauff couldn’t contain her water.
We can’t wait for a future rubber match!
