Serena Williams and her sister, Venus Williams, are, without a doubt, two of the best women’s tennis players in the world. They both play the same sport, but each has their own distinct approach that has propelled them to the top. Venus is upset by a recent statement made by a reporter who attempted to put her against her sister.
During a press conference over the weekend, Venus and her fellow tennis star, Jamie Murray, were asked a shady question. The reporter asked Venus and Jamie if they hoped to beat her sister Serena Williams and his brother Andy Murray in the tennis competition.
Are you in it to win it or is it the first target to get past the third round where Serena and Andy became a cropper?
The video of this exchange made its rounds on social media very quickly. In the clip, Venus is seen blasting off the reporter for asking such a question. The two athletes were both puzzled by the query, and it was very apparent on their faces.

Fans on Twitter applauded Venus for her brave response, and they were very impressed by how the tennis star handled the question. Venus and Jamie won their first rounds in the mixed doubles competition at Wimbledon this year. However, the same cannot be said about the second round. That being said, this is just a minor setback for Venus.
