World No. 2 and renowned entertainer Novak Djokovic orchestrated a night of hilarity on Wednesday evening for players competing at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters.

The annual Monte-Carlo Player Show gives the ATP World Tour stars a chance to let their hair down (and in some instances showcase their inner divas!) in a series of sketches, planned by Cecilia Ghe and Anna Galoppo, and staged at a private party.

As dessert, a delicious tiramisu, was being served following a three-course dinner, Djokovic took to the stage to emcee the event, and starred in several of the sketches himself. Those sat in the audience, including World No. 1 Rafael Nadal and ATP Executive Chairman and President Adam Helfant, were entertained as the stars of the show bravely masqueraded as their colleagues in send-up sketches and, in some cases, dance routines that had earlier required ATP trainers to treat their first case of stiletto-related injuries...

Viktor TroickiSergiy Stakhovsky, Robin Haase, Frederico Gil, Oliver Marach, Lukas Dlouhy, Bruno Soares, Horia Tecau, Daniel Nestor, Jean-Julien Rojer and Miles Maclagan were among those who took to the stage, but it was arguably Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi, Rohan Bopanna and Janko Tipsarevic who stole the show. “The Indo-Pak Express” showed off their dance moves with a Bollywood routine to “Jai-Ho”, which Djokovic also joined in with, and Tipsarevic had the audience rocking with a send-up of his Davis Cup teammate, Djokovic.
