John Isner and Tomas Berdych take part in the art interaction "Dragon Dance"
Shanghai, China | October 7, 2014 - Tomas Berdych and John Isner participated in a traditional Chinese “Dragon Dance” on the banks of the Bund river in Shanghai’s city centre. The ATP World Tour players received instruction from Master Lu on how to lead the Dragon Team, and demonstrated their new artistic talent in front of the assembled media. “I never imagined myself actually doing it,” admitted Isner. “I’d give myself about a C [grade]. I started off pretty horribly, but as it went on I got a lot better. It was a lot of fun.” Both players remarked on the setting for the Dragon Dance, in front of Shanghai’s famous skyline. “It’s amazing,” said Isner. “This is one of the coolest backdrops I’ll ever see. When I do come to Shanghai I try to at least once a year come by this area and check it out.” Berdych added, “It’s a very signature view of this city. It’s like many pictures around the world, you can see this view and we are part of it. We’re here, we’re trying a new thing and had some fun. It’s been a really nice evening.”
