When questioned during a press conference about her post-defeat plans following the US Open 2023, Venus Williams responded, “Well, I wouldn’t tell you.

People took to Twitter to express their disagreement, as they were genuinely irked. Williams’ perceived ‘discourteous’ response to a press conference question left them thoroughly dissatisfied.

Several individuals went to the extent of labeling her as arrogant and having a sense of entitlement. On Twitter, there were even responses suggesting that once she retires, the seasoned player will not be missed.

Williams has been widely regarded as a cornerstone of American tennis for nearly the past two decades. However, she faced a setback in her recent match against Greet Minnen, experiencing a defeat in the first round with a score of 6-1, 6-1.
