Andy Murray must be bored of the gruelling interviewing process for various media outlets on conclusion of his matches at Wimbledon, but there was a new face asking the questions following his round two victory over Blaz Rola.
Murray took less than 90 minutes to crush his young opponent 6-1, 6-1, 6-0, and while he took serious questions from newspaper and online journalists following the win - including GiveMeSport - a television dog was keen to get his thoughts on subjects including canines, the town of Wigan and Sue Barker.
That's right, the star of children's television on the CBBC channel, who goes by the name of Hacker T. Dog, has set himself up at SW19 to chat to the top tennis stars.
Hacker has his own television show - 'Hacker Time' - and will also speak to Serena and Venus Williams next week.
The interview with the 2013 gentleman's champion was somewhat dominated by the cheeky pooch as he told Murray about what his hometown of Wigan is like, and told him tennis related jokes. For example, he asked the third seed; "What time does Roger Federer go to sleep? - Tenn-ish."
Murray must be getting a little tired of doing favours for the dog community, despite owning his own pair of border terriers. Only a few days ago, the 27-year-old missed the start of practice with new coach Amelie Mauresmo after rescuing a labradoodle who was walking among traffic in London.
While this interview offers a moment of amusement, the pressure of defending this Grand Slam will be no laughing matter for Murray. He became the first British man to win Wimbledon in over 70 years when he defeated Novak Djokovic in last year's final.
It's been so far so good for the world number five, who also won the US Open in 2012. His easy win over Rola followed another comprehensive thrashing on Centre Court over David Goffin on Monday.
The encouraging start has gone a long way to quieten the doubters, for now at least. It has been a difficult year for Murray, as he struggled for form following his recovery from back surgery in 2013.
A split with highly-successful coach Ivan Lendl came just before Great Britain's elimination from the Davis Cup quarter-final in which Fabio Fognini easily dispatched of Murray in a crucial singles rubber.
The former world number two, however, hit back at the French Open earlier this month. He matched his best ever showing at Roland Garros with a semi-final outing, although eventual champion Rafael Nadal blocked the path to a first final on the clay.
Nadal, along with the likes of Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, will be hoping to stand in the way of Murray's defence in London as well.
None of the former champions have suffered shock exits in the early rounds. Murray will be hoping to keep that run going when he takes on Spanish world number 23 Roberto Bautista-Agut in the third round.
