I’m pretty sure former world No. 1 and current analyst/reporter Jim Courier was trying to ask Novak Djokovic a question about his conditioning Wednesday, but whatever he intended to say came out all wrong.
Novak beat David Ferrer in straight sets to advance to the semifinals of the Australian Open. The match wasn’t as easy as the score indicates; Djokovic was down 4-2 in the second set tiebreaker before he won five straight points to take the second set and a two sets to none lead.
Courier asked Djokovic why he breathed through his nose when he was playing, leaving the No. 1 seed stupefied. Courier realized his question was pretty stupid, and quickly changed subjects.
