"To be perfectly honest with you, I don’t want to be here," said Williams in response to a reporter who asked why she wasn't smiling after her match against her big sister Venus.
Serena Williams just said what we wish we could tell every man on the street who asks, “Baby girl, why aren’t you smiling?”
During a press conference Tuesday following her much-anticipated match with sister Venus Williams, Serena kept it all the way real with a reporter who asked why she wasn’t smiling or laughing post-match.
“It’s 11:30. To be perfectly honest with you, I don’t want to be here,” said Serena (watch around the 5:30 mark). “I just want to be in bed right now. I have to wake up early to practice. I don’t want to answer any of these questions and you keep asking me the same questions. It’s not really — you’re not making it super enjoyable. (Laughter.)”
This is what happens when keeping it real goes right.
Clearly Serena was having a Marshawn Lynch “I’m just here so I don’t get fined” kinda moment.
