For some reason, professional tennis players love imitating other professional tennis players.

Novak Djokovic does it. Andy Roddick does it. Even Caroline Wozniacki has gotten in on the fun.

During a recent exhibition against Maria Sharapova, Wozniacki pulled out what appears to be her favorite impersonation -- Serena Williams. The former No. 1 pretended to be Williams by stuffing towels in her bra and skirt to accentuate her curves.

Wozniacki even plays a point dressed as Williams, and of course she wins.

Sharapova and Wozniacki tend to have fun at their exhibitions. Earlier this year Wozniacki had her boyfriend, golf star Rory McIlroy, play a point for her against Sharapova.

If only NBA and NFL exhibitions were this much fun.

If William Spencer looks familiar, it's because he's played the lead role in a recent superhero movie. Sort of.

Spencer was a stunt double for The Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield. He worked closely with Garfield on the film, teaching Garfield how to ride a skateboard and even performing some stunts on camera.

Called the "Skate Ninja" for his dexterity on his board, Spencer has become famous from a series of YouTube clips that show him performing unbelievable skating stuns. See for yourself.

Spencer's newest video is out, and it is as good as the rest. This time Spencer is essentially a gymnast on wheels as he hops from one skateboard to the next and does backflips onto his skateboard.

Here are all the ankle-breaking, mind-bending highlights:

Just as it takes a lot of skill to hit a golf ball very far with a regular-sized driver, it takes a certain amount of talent to hit a golf ball not very far with a humongous driver.

This week a Dallas area golf pro named Michael Furrh drove a ball 146 yards using a 14-foot-2.5 inch driver. The distance might not sound like a lot, but the club was enormous. In fact, Furrh's drive will be the world record, if recognized by sanctioning officials.

Currently, the Guinness World Record for "Longest 'Usable' Golf Club" is owned by Karsten Maas of Denmark. Maas used a 13-foot-5 inch club to drive a ball 134 yards.

So Furrh has Maas beat with both the size of the club and the length of the drive.

According to the video's YouTube page, Furrh's club was made of regulation steel shafts and had a 460cc head.

The hapless Washington Wizards' win over the mighty Miami Heat on Tuesday was so improbable that it could have been produced in Hollywood.

Indeed, some people are now wondering if the upset was already written and forecasted by one of the most popular shows on television.

A crafty Homeland fan noticed that the Wizards-Heat game played out in an eerily similar manner to a scene in the TV show. Check it out below, and don't worry, there are no spoilers.

As you can see, the Wizards were leading by five points in the Homeland scene. The margin of victory in the actual game was four points: Wizards 105, Heat 101. But the gap would have been five if Nene Hilario of Washington hadn't missed one of his two free-throw attempts with two seconds left in the game.

For all of our sakes, let's hope this is the only coincidence between Homeland and real life.

Look out, Michael Phelps and Missy Franklin. These British babies are coming for your records.

Nine-month-old twins Ellie and William Trykush may not be able to walk or even crawl yet, but they can swim the length of a 25-meter pool all by themselves. They don't seem perturbed at all when placed in water, rather they appear quite comfortable.

And all the Olympic hoopla from the London Olympics has parents Vic and Charley Trykush thinking ahead.

"Now they can swim," Charley told the Daily Mirror, "and bearing in mind that they were born in an Olympic year, 2012, I would love to see them at the 2028 Olympics possibly, when they’re 16, doing the open water swim. And why not?"

Vic and Charley didn't even realize their infants had a special talent until they took them to swimming classes. There, they were the youngest of the bunch.

"I thought all babies could do it," Charley said.

Franklin didn't start swimming until she was five, and Phelps was seven when he first took to the pool, so these babies have a considerable head start.

In the wake of Jovan Belcher's death, fans, players and the media have struggled to make meaning of the tragedy.

The Kansas City Chiefs organization, at the heart of the news, has been especially troubled. The Chiefs did not honor Belcher publicly on Sunday, but they did set up his locker as if he was going to play against the Carolina Panthers. Some people deemed the display a "tribute," others weren't sure what to call it.

One player's poignant words in his post-game press conference after Sunday's game have been widely circulated. And for good reason. Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn spoke about his personal grief from Belcher's death, and the changing landscape of relationships that has been prompted by technology.

Strong words indeed:

"In my head I was thinking, 'What could I have done different?' When you ask someone how they're doing, do you really mean it? When you answer someone back, ‘How are you doing?’, are you really telling the truth? We live in a society of social networks, and Twitter pages and Facebook. That’s fine and stuff, but we have contact with our work associates, our family, our friends, and it seems like half the time we are more pre-occupied with our phone and other things going on instead of the actual relationships we have in front of us. Hopefully, people can learn from this and try to actually figure out if someone is battling something deeper on the inside, than what they may be revealing on a day-to day basis.”
