Tennis is a sport that can be played by men and women, a fact very easily forgotten it appears! Most people watching Wimbledon would be aware of this, but obviously the American reporter who interviewed Andy Murray had not been informed of this tiny nugget of information. 

In his post match interview after loosing to Sam Querrey, a slightly under educated journalist piped up and began his question with the sentence, "Sam is the first US player to reach a major semi-final since 2009.". Murray, who has a young daughter, was quick to correct his mistake by simple stating "Male player". (MIC DROP)

The journalist asked Murray to repeat himself and once again stated "Male player. Right?". The fact that Serena Williams has won ONLY 12 Grand Slam tournaments since 2009 was casually disregarded. One of which she won while pregnant may we add. See the awkward moment below for yourself!
