A simple misunderstanding created for an awesome time at Ernests Gulbis' press conference after his first-round victory at the 2014 Wimbledon.

A reporter asked Gulbis about the "umpires," but the Latvian tennis player heard "vampires." That misunderstanding created a bit of an odd exchange at first, but it got much better when he finally realized what had happened.

Check out the transcript, via ASAP Sports, to see what led to the confusion:

You can understand why he was so confused when he thought they were talking about vampires. We do know now that Gulbis believes that there's no place for them in tennis, however.
