WATCH | This week's Tennis Channel segment focuses on Novak Djokovic, who on Monday tweeted video of his supposed, dance-tastic prep for a match in Monte Carlo. (Full disclosure: Tennis Channel is owned by Circa's parent company, Sinclair Broadcast Group.)
Despite rehabbing an elbow injury, the world's No. 2 men's tennis player found himself getting his groove on to the strains of Simple Minds' 1985 hit "Alive and Kicking" in a funny video posted on Twitter.
The Twitter account for HEAD Tennis posted the minute-long video early Monday morning.
In Djokovic's retweet, he claimed to fess up to "funny" pre-match rituals.
