I have to admit, I had NO idea what a "keepy-uppy" was until I watched this video.   According to Wikipedia (the MOST reliable source) a keepy-uppy is: Keepie uppie, or "kick-ups" is the skill of juggling with a football using feet, lower legs, knees, chest, shoulders, and head, without allowing the ball to hit the ground.   It is similar to Kemari, a game formerly practised in the Japanese imperial court. In this video, Fernando Verdasco, Andy Murray, and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga compete to see who can do the most keepy-uppies.   Jo does ok, Fernando blames the slippery floor for his lack of keepy-uppy skills (no, they aren't in Madrid), and Andy........you'll just have to press PLAY!
