Serena Williams Scorches Reporter Who Asks Why She’s Not Smiling (Video)

Serena Williams doesn’t have time for silly questions.

The No. 1-ranked women’s tennis player, who’s vying to finish off the calendar Grand Slam at the U.S. Open, sat for a press conference after her quarterfinals win over her sister, Venus Williams. One reporter thought it’d be a good idea to ask Serena why she wasn’t smiling and laughing more after her victory, and he quickly found out that was a bad idea.

While that was a pretty irrelevant question to begin with, the fact Williams also was exhausted made for a bad mix for that reporter.

Luckily, he now knows not to mess with Williams when she’s tired. Or ever, really.
