Sports celebrations usually make for quality entertainment. While the NFL has cracked down on endzone celebrations (see: Randy Moss, Terrell Owens), tennis celebrations seem to have become predictable and repetitive. Novak Djokovic eating grass after winning Wimbledon was an, um, interesting way to enjoy his first title at the All England Club, but can't tennis players come up with something a little more creative than the over-used fist pump without reaching TO and Chad Ochocinco levels?

Well, last week we saw a few players spice up the post-match celebration by bringing their dance moves to the tennis courts. By now we've all seen Andrea Petkovic's little booty jig dubbed the "Petko Dance," but check out the new move she pulled out after beating Sloane Stephens in the Carlsbad quarters.

Petkovic can get jiggy with it, no doubt, but Radek Stepanek wins last week's celebratory dance-off. Here's the 6-foot-1, 32-year-old Czech doing the worm after beating Gael Monfils in the Legg Mason final.

  There are almost certainly better tennis celebrations out there, so sound off in the comments if you've seen 'em.
