They won the top titles at Wimbledon (and a whole lot more), but Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic found a way to win over the hearts of fans even more when they took the stage Sunday night for the Champions' Dinner.

Rather than just dress up and dine at the gala, the tennis greats got down and danced.

"I was thinking more of a waltz or something, I would say, more sophisticated, something that blends in, in the environment and the beautiful hall where we had the dinner yesterday," he explained during a Monday news conference at the All England Club. "But Serena wanted to move a little bit more, so then we considered other options and 'Night Fever' came to life."

Appropriately enough, the Bee Gees disco hit came out the same year the Wimbledon dance tradition died off. What a way to bring it back!
