'It's on!', Karl hilariously challenges Courier


//

Kyle Stefanovic has challenged tennis legend Jim Courier to a one-on-one match ahead of the 2019 Australian Open giving way to a hilarious war of words between the two co-hosts.

The four-time grand slam champion joins Nine’s expert commentary team ahead of the Australian summer of tennis as Stefanovic pounced on the opportunity to hit it out with one of the greats.

“It’s a great honour to meet you, one of the best commentators in the world in any field,” Stefanovic started.

“But I’d like to have a hit with you if we can down in Melbourne.

“I think we might have to do that,” Courier replied.

“Maybe if I take a couple points off you, it’s your shout?” Stefanovic returned.

“What if I hit you with the ball? Is it your shout?” Courier fired back.

“It’s possible it’s my shout but you won’t hit me, I’m too elusive, I’m an athlete,” Stefanovic assured.

“Oh you’re elusive? Turn sideways for me for a second..nah I think I can hit you, I got ya,” Courier hit-back.

“I see what’s happening here,” Stefanovic said.

“Well you’re barrel chested…You might want to wear something blue you’ll blend in with the court,” Courier doubled-down.

“What are you like 120 now or something?” The TODAY host hilariously bellowed before running off camera as the studio erupted in laughter.

Despite the hilarity Courier was all business in his assessment of returning star Serena Williams who will make her first professional appearance since her controversial US Open final defeat.

“It will be really exciting to see her back, see how she responds from the controversy from the US open final when she and Naomi Osaka had that battle, and Serena had that battle with the chair umpire,” Courier said.

“It will be interesting to see how she approaches things in Australia. I think she’s going to be fine, I think she’s developed just a great perspective in life. She’s far more experienced, she’s a mother now, I think a lot of those experiences will help her navigate through this.

“It’ll be challenging, she’s going to be asked a lot of questions no doubt bout that situation, but she’s an incredible champion and she’s playing for a lot more than just herself.”
