ATTENTION DEFICIT

Following Nicholas Mahut’s first-round loss in the French Open, a reporter began the press conference by saying, “Congratulations.”

“Congratulations?” Mahut said. “I lost.”

Reporter: “You lost? OK. So what happened out there?”

Mahut: “Are you serious? Did you watch the match?”

Reporter: “No, I didn’t. I was told that you won. I’m sorry.”

Mahut (awkward pause): “Questions in French, please.”

Rock On suggests the reporter skip any of Gregg Popovich’s playoff press conferences.
