French Open competitors show off their moves with surprisingly impressive dance-off


My first thought on seeing the video below: "Come on, you're already at the French Open. Do you really need to be so good at dancing, too?"

Apparently, yes, because Gael Monfils and Laurent Lokoli threw down a pretty legit dance-off at the Open's "Kids' Day" event, notes Deadspin. This isn't one of those times where everyone walks away with a trophy and a pat on the head, though: Monfils handily steals the show, sealing his victory with a backspring most gymnasts would envy.

Will Monfils dominate as well with a racket in his hand when the Open kicks off tomorrow? We'll all just have to wait and see. --Sarah Eberspacher
