Venus Williams, a five-time singles Wimbledon champion of the United States of America teamed up in the mixed doubles category with Jamie Murray of Great Britain at the Wimbledon Championships 2022. This was her comeback to the court after a gap of eleven months. She started the tournament with a win in the first round in a three-set match against wildcard entrants Alicja Rosolska of Poland and Michael Venus of New Zealand.

Venus Williams made a last-minute decision to play at the Wimbledon with Jamie Murray, elder brother of Andy Murray, who is also a five-time Grand Slam mixed doubles champion. Their pair started with a win and it made them confident about their decision.

During the post match interaction with the reporters, one of the reporter asked Venus about the level of competition she has with her sister Serena, who had played with her partner Jamie’s elder brother, Andy Murray at the Wimbledon 2019. The reporter also asked that “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?”.

Venus Williams was very much disappointed upon hearing such questions and responded by saying “What type of question is that. We’re in for a stroll. Come on,” and they both laughed it out. The journalist again asked, “Are you in for the experience or are you going all the way?” To this, she gave a very sarcastic reply hitting back at the reporter “Are you going to write a good article or just halfway decent one.”
