French tennis player Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is often considered a look-alike of boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

On Friday, Tsonga accentuated his resemblance to the late boxer after he showed off his boxing moves following his third-round win at the US Open. The No. 9 seed pulled off a straight-set 6-3 6-4 7-6 conquest of South African Kevin Anderson.

And the celebration that ensued, amused one and all.  The 31-year-old exhibited his dodging and punching skills before breaking out his customary style.

It, however, wasn’t without a minor hiccup. Here’s a moment where he let slip off his racquet (and a point).

Moving on, Tsonga has been drawn to lock horns with American Jack Sock for a place in the quarter-finals.
