Samantha Stosur thought she was doing a straightforward interview to discuss Australia's forthcoming Fed Cup tie against Belarus.
But her green-and-gold team-mate Daria Gavrilova was the one coming up with the questions, feeding them to the presenter Nick McCarvel through an earpiece.
For Stosur, it all seemed a huge and hilarious coincidence - she was asked about things she had discussed with the rest of the Aussie squad just a few days before...but they weren't quite the topics she expected to be asked about by the media.
"Do you ever wear hotel robes?" was one; "Do you sleep with a top sheet or just a quilt cover?" was another.

"I made all these questions!" squealed Gavrilova at the end.
"I did wonder why you had your earpiece in," said Stosur to the interviewer, "but I just went with it."
The pair were all smiles afterwards, with Stosur tweeting a reference to one of Gavrilova's nicknames mentioned in the interview: "Silly sausage!"
