LMFAO star Redfoo is putting his love of tennis to good use by coaching a junior player in Las Vegas.

The Sexy and I Know It hitmaker used to be a player on the children's tennis circuit and he has taken on coaching duties for aspiring champion Ayaka Okuno while he is on hiatus from Lmfao.

Redfoo, who is also working on his own line of tennis clothing, has been spending time on the courts in Las Vegas with Okuno and reveals he hopes to emulate legendary basketball coach Phil Jackson.

He tells the Associated Press, "I kind of use the Phil Jackson approach which I teach her some vague things (sic) - I teach her how to think for herself on the court. She's really good at self-analysing."
