Travis Kelce’s iconic homage to classic Beastie Boys diddy Fight For Your Right has officially gone mainstream in the sports scene after tennis superstar Novak Djokovic imitated the Kansas City Chiefs tight end on Tuesday at the U.S. Open.
After Djokovic’s win against Taylor Fritz that sent him to the Open’s semifinals, the beloved tennis legend took to the microphone to tell fans exactly what they need to do if they intend to party.
A clip of the affair was posted by the U.S. Open’s official Twitter account, which made an obligatory reference to Kelce, who has popularized the lyric in contemporary times.
While Djokovic’s delivery of the line was received with a bit less enthusiasm by the crowd in attendance at the U.S.T.A Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, his gusto in delivery was up to Kelce’s standard.
The three-time U.S. Open winner may get his chance to see Kelce in action on Thursday when the Chiefs face the Detroit Lions for the first game of the NFL’s 2023 regular season.
