London, July 1 (ANI): Croatian tennis star Ivo Karlovic insists that he will continue with his bizarre dances at Wimbledon and promised a special one if he beats current champion Roger Federer today.

According to The Sun, Karlovic, 30, hopes to be stepping out in style as he appears in the first Grand Slam quarterfinal of his career.

Big-serving Karlovic, three inches taller than Crouch at 6 ft 10in, played up to fans with a rodeo-style bucking bronco dance after his fourth-round win over seventh seed Fernando Verdasco.

He said: "It just came because I was happy. It was my victory dance. It was planned as I knew my friends were here. I did it for them. I will do it again. It will be the same dance."

Karlovic, seeded 22, had suffered four successive first-round defeats at the All England Club. But this year he has slammed down 137 aces in his four clashes so far.

He has a poor record against Federer, though, having won just once in nine attempts. (ANI)
