Watch: Venus Williams gives epic reply to reporter in Wimbledon press conference
At this year’s Wimbledon, Venus Williams finally made her comeback to tennis after more than a year since she was seen on court. She is playing the mixed doubles event alongside Andy Murray’s elder brother Jamie Murray and after winning their first-round match, the team was asked by a reporter “Are you in it to win it, or is the first target just to get past the third round where Serena and Andy came a cropper?”
Jamie Murray said, “We’re better than that, come on.” However, Venus added on, saying “We’re in it for a stroll. Come on.”
