Novak Djokovic handled Paul-Henri Matheiu with ease on Thursday, dispatching his second-round opponent 6-1, 6-3, 6-0. His day got significantly harder when, during the post-match interview, he was asked to re-enact his ALS ice bucket challenge where he danced to Vanilla Ice's only hit. (Programming note: Novak did challenge Mr. Bean, FYI).
The guy running the PA system was asked to scramble and find "Ice, Ice, Baby!", and as the US Open crowd eagerly waited, Djokovic got everyone clapping. DJ PA guy couldn't find Vanilla's anthem, but he did toss on some Iggy Azalea, leading to this splendid moment in Djokovic's Open career.
If he goes on to win the US Open for the first time since 2011, we're calling this the turning point of his season.
