 A reporter noticed this and asked: "You just won a match. Normally you smile when you win. You come in here, you laugh,"

"What happens tonight? Is it because you beat Venus or because you're thinking about what is going on next? What’s wrong?”

Serena responded: "It's 11:30. To be perfectly honest with you, I don't want to be here.

"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."

"And you keep asking me the same questions. It's not really ... you're not making it super enjoyable.

Cracking a smile, Serena Williams said: "Just being honest!"

It's probably the sort of thing most of us would want to say if we had been working until 11:30pm and were asked why we weren't smiling.
