death and dancing

Horrifically sad news today about Mathieu Montcourt, the French tennis player who has died at the age of 24.

Meanwhile, the City of Los Angeles and much of the world will have its eyes on the Staples Center, where a memorial will be held for the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

Tennis players mourned the loss of Jackson while at Wimbledon, including Serena Williams and Roger Federer. However, just over two months ago, Novak Djokovic payed his own tribute to Jackson while at the ATP stop in Monte Carlo.

In true Djoko fashion, Novak danced “Thriller” to add to his cadre of impersonations. It may have been a little premature, but you can see he worked hard on his moves (‘boy can dance!’), which is a testament to MJ himself.

We’ll miss you, Michael.
