Upon winning the China Open over a game but outplayed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Novak Djokovic initially deferred but then broke into the "Gangnam Style" dance popularized by Korean rapper Psy. A ballgirl led the spontaneous frolic, and Djokovic, perhaps not in the mood or seeking to change his goofy/impersonating image even further, was never completely engaged, but the on-court announcer was not about to accept anything less. Here's the wonderfully brief video:



An ocean away over the weekend, Mick Kelleher, the first-base coach for the New York Yankees and an avid tennis aficionado, had his remarks come to light that Robinson Canó's swing resembles that of one Roger Federer. Of all people. It's a fun slice of a major sport and a so-called minor one sharing crossover appeal. As for Canó, he had one hit in five appearances at the plate, with two runs batted in, in Sunday night's come-from-behind playoff victory over the Baltimore Orioles. Not exactly Federerian numbers, but it'll do for now. No word yet on whether he's prone to shank pitches on occasion, but the smooth groove of his swing indeed garners him comparisons to the greatest player ever in tennis. See that fluid delivery here:



What say you, Spin readers: Does Canó's swing bear a passing or even glaring resemblance to that of Roger?
