Venus Williams is one of the oldest players in the tennis fraternity. She turned pro in 1994, at the age of 14. Her longevity is something everyone is in awe of and would like to emulate. However, the American star played it differently in an interview with ESPN. Clearly, the six-time singles Grand Slam winner is fed up with questions regarding her longevity.

In the interview, Venus asked Chris Evert to ask her something apart from this particular angle, which the reporter obliged to with a cheeky question.

Williams has produced the most entertaining media interview, probably in the history of television. She kept Chrissie Evert on the brink with her subtle and witty replies. Apparently, Evert was having fun as well and played along with the American.

Chrissie asked Venus about what keeps her going in tennis. The American once again had a funny response to this.

The benefits are great. The insurance is great, which is good because I need an MRI every month,” said Venus during her interview with ESPN.

The 41-year-old is going strong this year, with yet another appearance at SW19. Venus won her first-round match against Mihaela Buzărnescu of Romania after a bit of a struggle, 7-5, 4-6, 6-3. She will be playing against Ons Jabeur of Tunisia in her second-round match, which will undoubtedly be a tough ask for the World No.111.

Venus is also playing in the mixed doubles category, partnering with Nick Kyrgios. If not the singles title, Venus will hope to take home the mixed doubles title at Wimbledon. However that is no easy task either, something Venus knows very well, a final appearance being her best one back in 2006.

Venus Williams is still going strong with her game and shall be seen as an icon by all young players. It is no joke to start off your career as a 14-year-old and winning 23 Grand Slam titles, across all categories.
