Novak Djokovic was filmed dancing in the gym and making moves like he was in a nightclub just before his United Cup match against Alex de Minaur. 

As Djokovic was preparing to take to the court in Perth, he had a bit of fun in the gym. After being given sunglasses by seemingly one of the trainers, Djokovic started dancing and making quite impressive moves. The whole thing lasted for around 10 seconds as Djokovic burst into laughter after taking the sunglasses off and giving it back to the trainer. 

Djokovic was well-equipped for his performance and he certainly didn't disappoint.

On Wednesday, Serbia was scheduled to take on Australia in the United Cup quarterfinal. The first on the court were Djokovic and top-ranked Australian male tennis player Alex de Minaur.

Going into the match, Djokovic was considered the heavy favorite and many expected the world No. 1 to give Serbia an early lead. But then, Djokovic's wrist started causing the Serb issues and the 36-year-old wasn't able to play his best tennis. 

At one point, Djokovic called for a medical timeout. Then, Djokovic was seen on the court arguing with a physio. Later, Djokovic claimed that the physio denied him treatment. 

Overall, it was a tough day at the office for Djokovic, who ended up losing 4-6 4-6 to de Minaur.

After Djokovic, the next on the court for Serbia was Natalija Stevanovic. Stevanovic, ranked at No. 185 in the world, didn't stand much of a chance against Ajla Tomljanovic as the two-time Wimbledon quarterfinalist beat the Serb 6-1 6-1 to seal Australia's quarterfinal win over Serbia. In the end, Australia ended up beating Serbia 3-0 after Storm Hunter and Matthew Ebden beat Dejana Radanovic and Nikola Cacic 6-3 6-3.

Meanwhile, Djokovic said in his press conference afterward that he expects to be fine for the Australian Open, which starts in 10 days.
