Venus Williams knows the highs and lows of life on the tennis court. But when it comes to her post-match ritual, it can vary—especially depending on if she wins or loses.
PureWow had the chance to catch up with the tennis superstar while she was in New York City to promote her partnership with Clorox and its disinfecting wipes, a must-have during cold and flu season.
There, she explained exactly what goes down in the minutes after she wins—or loses—a game.
“After the match, hopefully I’m high-five-ing my team,” she says. “But if I’ve lost, I probably scare everyone since I’m in such a terrible, terrible mood. Of course, I shake my opponent’s hand and acknowledge that they played a better match than me that day. But when I walk off, I’m not happy.”
