Djokovic, Ivanovic get goofy at Hopman Cup

Serbia's Novak Djokovic and Ana Ivanovic are into the Hopman Cup final against Team Spain, Fernando Verdasco and Anabel Medina Garrigues, and not without their standard hijinks. Or the Djoker's, anyway.

The WTA invites all comers to caption this particularly hilarious and awkward photo of the Serbs here. To up the ante in their mixed doubles match against Team Germany, Tommy Haas and Tatjana Malek, Ivanovic—with not too much coaxing from her friend and partner—joined Djokovic on the court for a wonderfully brief re-enactment of Psy's globe-permeating anthem, "Gangnam Style."



Who knows, the ATP's No. 1 player may very well have helped his countrywoman out of her shell in more ways than one. We know that Ivanovic can play great tennis, and she has Down Under. (See this clip of highlights from her victory over Venus Williams in a 2008 quarterfinal match.) It remains to be seen if she can, and will, return to the mountaintop in women's tennis.
