Venus Williams showed that age is just a number in defeating Mihaela Buz─ârnescu in her First Round Wimbledon match, but the veteran also produced one of the her funniest interviews to date.

The 41-year-old is no stranger to questions regarding her longevity, considering she joined the tour as a pro at 14 years old back in 1994.

While she is ranked World No.111, the seven-time Grand Slam champion continues to prove form is temporary and class is permanent with her 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 victory over Buz─ârnescu.

Following the match, the question of Williams' longevity once again popped up.

Speaking to tennis great Chrissie Evert on ESPN, Williams was asked: "What's the key to your longevity?" 

Having dealt with the same question time and time again, Williams decided a tongue-in-cheek response and even offered a glimpse into her love life.

"IDK, I'm tired of thinking about it, can't you ask me something else?" an exasperated Williams said.

But the next question was unexpected.

"How's your love life?" Evert asked jokingly.

But Venus quipped back:"I'm verrrrryyyyy single."

She then joked: "I might be undateable."

The joke had the ESPN panel in laughter and was just a small glimpse into why Williams is a beloved sport star the world over.

Venus Williams advances, Serena Williams crashes out

Williams was playing her 90th career major with her first Wimbledon coming back in 1997.

She had also decided to team up with Aussie Nick Kyrgios in the mixed doubles competition.

Unfortunately, in devastating scenes, Serena Williams suffered an injury when she slipped and fell during the first set against Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

The 23-time Grand Slam champ attempted to keep playing and fight through the pain.

Williams burst into tears and bit her upper lip, covering her face between points.

The crowd tried to offer support and encouragement, however the 39-year-old succumbed to the injury soon after.

The American dropped to her knees and the chair umpire came over to check on her.

Williams then made her way up to the net to shake hands with Sasnovich, conceding with the score 3-all, 15-30.
