Hours after playing a tense three-set final at Indian Wells, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic were in Bogota, Colombia, for an exhibition match with a decidedly different tone.
The exo featured Djokovic cracking jokes (leaving the crowd of 14,000 in stitches), sombrero vueltiaos and a pre-match dance-off with an enthusiastic fan:
Djokovic wins this one on points, not because he has better rhythm, but because he has less to work with. Rafa is from Mallorca! He's been in a Shakira video! He should be like a flamenco version of Fred Astaire! Instead, he looks like my dad after two drinks at a wedding. For somebody with spectacular footwork, he seems awfully aware of his body whilst getting jiggy with it.
