Venus Williams Has Perfect Response To Tennis Reporter's Ridiculous Question

The reporter asked the mixed doubles pair, Venus Williams and Jamie Murray, about their reason for playing in Wimbledon this year.

Tennis players Venus Williams and Jamie Murray chuckled and joked after a reporter’s question about why they’re playing at Wimbledon.

Venus and Jamie, who wrapped up a second round victory in the tournament’s mixed doubles bracket, were hit with the question during a post-match press conference on Saturday.

The reporter, in a clip shared by BBC Sport, asked if the two were “in it to win it” at the tournament.

“Or is it the first target just to get past the third round where Serena and Andy came a cropper.” the reporter asked.

The reporter’s question referenced Venus’ sister Serena and Jamie’s brother Andy who lost in the third round of a mixed doubles pairing during the 2019 Wimbledon tournament.

The question comes after the pair’s success at the Grand Slam tennis tournament over the years. Venus has won five singles titles and six doubles titles at the tournament while Jamie has taken home two mixed doubles titles.

“What kind of question is that,” Venus responded as she turned to Jamie to laugh.

“We’re in it for a stroll. Come on.”

The tennis player later asked the reporter if they were going to “write a good article or just a halfway decent one” about the pair.
