George the Golden Retriever puppy is one backhand away from taking on Rafael Nadal in the US Open.
That might be a stretch, but the dog has definitely got his shuffling down pat. In a video posted to YouTube this week by his owner, George appears enthralled by the recent Australian Open, catching every serve, lob and rally during the finals match between champion Li Na and Dominika Cibulkova. He also stays on his feet for the entire game, sweating practically as much as the players.
Once George masters his topspin, he'll be headed straight for Wimbledon!
