Medvedev Tsitsipas

After Tsitsipas initiated the dance-off at the Cincinnati Masters last year, Medvedev gave him a taste of his own medicine. Tsitsipas celebrated his victory in the tournament’s final four by dancing on the court. During the game in Rome, Medvedev discussed his dancing skills and mentioned that he had previously performed them at Flushing Meadows. He also described what the dance was.

“I did once in the U.S. Open that was famous. I like the GIF. I don’t know how you call it GIF or JIF? So let’s see what comes out with this one.” he commented.

“Because when you do it, it’s like being in the club completely drunk when you’re dancing, and then I have a lot of friends like this, you feel like you are the god of the dance pole,” Medvedev added.
