Venus Williams had the best response after a journalist questioned whether she wanted to go all the way in Wimbledon.

Williams was joined by fellow tennis player Jamie Murray for a press conference after the pair played in the mixed doubles competition.

After winning their first-round match against Michael Venus and Alicja Rosolska over the weekend, a reporter questioned whether they were hoping to beat Venus’s sister Serena Williams and Jamie’s brother Andy Murray in the tournament.

The reporter insisted, “Are you in it for the experience or are you going to go all the way?”
