WATCH: Reporter embarrassingly congratulates Nicolas Mahut after loss

French tennis pro Nicolas Mahut had a rough Monday.

After losing his opening round match on his home soil at the French Open, the 32-year-old Frenchman had to deal with a clueless reporter at his post-match
news conference.

The unidentified reporter embarrassingly offers a simple “congratulations” to Mahut.

“Congratulations. I lost,” Mahut replies as he leans back dumbfounded by the reporter’s statement.

As you can see in the attached transcript, the reporter digs himself an even deeper hole asking Mahut what happened in the match.

Credit to Mahut for handling this exchange like a pro.
