This Is What A Dance-Off Between Two Professional Tennis Players Looks Like

Gael Monfils shows off some sick moves that would put any professional dancer to shame.

The French Open Kids Day Saturday featured an epic dance-off between French players Gael Monfils and Laurent Lokoli.

While nothing can be said about the future tennis play-offs, Monfils won the breakdance-battle singlehandedly when he pulled off a one-handed handspring like a piece of cake.

19-year-old Lokoli wasn’t bad either. He tried to catch-up to his unstoppable opponent but all his efforts died in vain.

Monfils is a former French No. 1 and has been ranked as World No. 7 and won 5 singles titles. He was the runner-up at the Paris Masters in 2009 and 2010 and a semifinalist at the 2008 French Open.

His swift moves are proof that he is not just an incredible sportsman but also could qualify as a professional dancer.

Watch his sick dance moves in the video above and see if you can attempt “The Matrix Bend” Monfils performs flawlessly like it was nothing.

Monfils is also known for dancing to celebrate victories, which explains why he was chosen to star in the music video for "Hello" by French DJs Martin Solveig and Dragonette in 2010 alongside former No.1, Serbian player Novak Djokovic.

The 113th edition of the French Open and the second Grand Slam event of the year will take place at the Stade Roland Garros from 25 May to 8 June.

This year, in the men's singles Rafael Nadal is the four-time defending champion while Serena Williams is the defending women's singles champion.
