Jim Courier did his customary post-match on court interview with the victor of last night’s thrilling 5-set win by Roger Federer over Gilles Simon.
In his Q&As, the brazen Courier often asks questions about personal matters, appearance or other non-tennis questions. Yesterday with Federer, he got into some trivia but he got it wrong.
Courier asked Federer if he could recall the last time he had lost IN THE third round at a Grand Slam. Federer confidently responded with Gustavo Kuerten at the 2004 French Open, which is the right answer to THAT question.
However, Courier wouldn’t give Roger full credit for giving the right answer. He then backtracked and rephrased his question to the last time Federer lost BEFORE the third round at a Grand Slam.
From there it got rather confusing! Funny stuff.
Earlier in the interview Federer gave some humorous thoughts on his emotions and state of mind in that fifth set. It’s well worth a listen.
Here’s the wordplay from the two former No. 1s:
