Serena Williams Schools Reporter Who Asks Why She Isn't Smiling

She's fresh off a Wimbledon win, stands this close to matching Steffi Graf's record, and just defeated her sister Venus in a grueling match at the U.S. Open. What more do people want from Serena Williams?

Apparently, the tennis champ has to smile, too. Following Williams' victory over her sister on Tuesday, a reporter asked her why she didn't seem happier. (Side note: When's the last time someone asked Andy Murray or Roger Federer this question?)

"Normally, you're smiling when you win," a male reporter pointed out during the post-match press conference. "You laugh. What is this tonight? Is it just because you beat Venus? Or because you are thinking about what's coming up next? What's wrong?"

A visibly exhausted Williams wasted no time in shutting the guy down with this awesome response.

"To be perfectly honest with you, I don't want to be here," she admitted. "I just want to be in bed right now and I have to wake up early to practice. And I don't want to answer any of these questions. You guys keep asking me the same questions... You're not making it super enjoyable. Just being honest."

Snap. No doubt we'll see a flood of op-eds and tweets about Williams being a bad sport or unnecessarily moody, but we couldn't disagree more. The Grand Slam-bound star athlete has more than earned the right to call out silly questions. Can she live?
