Novak Djokovic is the latest sports celebrity to be seen dancing to the tune of PSY's "Gangnam Style."
Djokovic performed the pop dance after winning against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 76, 62. The latest triumph gave Djokovic his third straight Beijing crown.
Novak Djokovic Dances to ‘Gangnam Style,’ Says it was a Promise
In an interview, Djokovic said the dance was a fulfillment of his promise to some fans.
"Nothing was planned... I was talking to fans who suggested to me to do that dance at the end of the tournament in case I win. So I had to hold my promise, and it was fun," he said.
Djokovic showed he has no issues in describing his own dancing skills.
"I think it was obvious that I was the worst dancer there out of the small group, but it still was quite a lot of fun," he said.
One YouTube user, Michael Lees, is not particularly pleased with the video showing Djokovic and his "Gangnam Style" moment.
"Why would you make him do something like this?! It's painful to watch, let him enjoy his success how he wants!"
On the opposite side is a fan who seems to enjoy what the athlete did for his fans:
"He's tired but still dancing!!! love you Nole <3 <3<3<3," reads the comment of mani76sani.
On a serious note, Djokovic acknowledges his eye is set on a bigger prize. His recent victory improved his 2012 points over Roger Federer from 990 points to 1490 points. He pointed out he aims to finish at the top this year.
"This will definitely help me in that race, but it's still quite open. There are still tournaments to come, big ones. Shanghai, obviously the first 1000 event that is next week. I want to try to get as far as I can in the tournament, obviously taking one match at a time as I always do," Djokovic said.
