Venus Williams Shuts Down Reporter Who Tried to Pit Her Against Sister Serena Williams

Venus Williams was not afraid to call out these questions. After winning her first-round match with fellow tennis star Jamie Murray against Michael Venus and Alicja Rosolska on Saturday, the tennis pro shut down an eyebrow-raising line of questioning during a press conference at Wimbledon.«Are you in it to win it? Or is it the first target to get past the third round where Serena and Andy became a cropper?» a reporter asked the duo in a video of the exchange from the BBC that has since gone viral. The question references Venus' sister Serena Williams and Jamie's brother Andy Murray, who were both defeated in earlier rounds of the tennis tournament's singles competition.«What kind of question is that?» Venus asked, looking over at Jamie seemingly confused.«We're in it for a stroll,» she sarcastically responded to the reporter.

Brooklyn Beckham poses shirtless in cheeky photo as wife Nicola Peltz shares glimpse into newly-married life
Brooklyn Beckham and wife Nicola Peltz are fully immersed in the honeymoon phase with a photo of the groom revealing just how married life is treating them so far. The newlyweds tied the knot a week ago in a lavish $3million (£2.3million) wedding that took place at Nicola’s parents’ home in Palm Springs, Florida. Well, it seems Nicola, 27, and Brooklyn, 23, are still on cloud nine after celebrating their big day. On Easter Sunday, the former Bates Motel actress shared a close-up photo of her new husband smiling at her while topless leaving his heavily-tattooed torso on show. Nicola captioned the photo in her Instagram stories: ‘Married life @brooklynpeltzbeckham,’ with a red heart emoji. She had earlier wished her new mother-in-law Victoria Beckham a happy 48th birthday. Brooklyn and Nicola have been keeping a relatively low profile as they get stuck into married life. They were last pictured together heading to a family brunch the morning after the wedding with their parents, including Brooklyn’s dad David Beckham, as well as Nicola’s close girl friends. Their wedding boasted quite an A-list guest list with stars such as Eva Longoria, Serena and Venus Williams, and Spice Girls stars Mel B and Mel C in attendance. The couple were gifted with a £750,000 vintage Jaguar from father-of-the-groom David, and Brooklyn was later seen taking it for a spin with Nicola’s best friend Angela in the driver’s seat. However, the couple asked their wedding guests to donate money to a Ukraine relief fund instead of typical gifts, to support those affected by the war. Victoria Beckham marks 48th birthday with iconic throwback as family salute special dayNicola Peltz reveals vintage flip phones from her wedding amid 'social media

He said he was sleeping on the hospital floor, holding the door shut because he didn’t want to let anyone get in.’They added to The Sun: ’David got a lump in his throat and had to stop and take a breather to regain his composure, but it was a very sweet speech.’He reportedly described his daughter-in-law, 27-year-old Nicola – who was styled by Leslie Fremar in Valentino, with her make-up by Kate Lee, and hair preened and perfected by Adil Abergel – as ‘incredible’, before paying tribute to the actress and adding: ‘We love you so much.
