BOSTON (CBS) – Adam Jones and Rich Keefe have had their fair share of awkward interviews, but what transpired at the French Open following a Nicolas Mahut loss may take the cake.
Mahut, the 40th ranked player in the world, just lost in four sets in round one of the men’s singles to Kazakhstan’s Mikhail Kukushkin. Mahut was expected to advance and lost to the lesser ranked player.
Somebody forgot to tell the interviewer that.
It was the definition of awkward:
Again, Jones and Keefe are not here to pass judgment. If you’re a sports journalist, it’s one of those “Hey, we’ve all been there” moments.
Jones shares a story about how he got a player’s alma mater wrong and Keefe revealed an unpleasant interaction with Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, who is the King of Awkward Interviews.
