Venus Williams was the victor in the most recent showdown with her little sis (and new mom) Serena at the current BNP Paribas tournament.  It may be Serena nabbing all the comeback headlines, but don't sleep on Venus either.

Before she had a moment to relish in her huge win, a male reporter made the big mistake of pointing out Venus' age.

In her post-match, on-court interview, the older Williams sister was asked:

"Who would have ever thought, at 37-years-old,you'd be back at the top of the mountain and playing this type of tennis? What does the journey feel like to you?"

 

Her response, with a coy laugh that got him together right quick:

"Well, Andrew I never go around talking about how old you are."

Bloop!

When Andrew tried to say "we're the same age," she hit him with the 'CHILE PLEASE' look.

He said he learned his lesson.

In an inspirational moment, Venus revealed:

"I’m from right down the street in Compton, CA and this just shows that wherever you come from and you believe in yourself, you can do anything."

Yassss Venus!  Check it below:

After winning Tuesday night's match as well, Venus enters the Quarterfinals tonight at 8pET and battles C. Suárez Navarro.

Good luck, V!
