This is exhibit A for things we don't wanna see.

But our queen won't let that get her down. She clapped back in the classiest way and politely told him to take a seat.

Dear John, I adore and respect you but please please keep me out of your statements that are not factually based.

I've never played anyone ranked "there" nor do I have time. Respect me and my privacy as I'm trying to have a baby. Good day sir

*mic drop*

I'm sure these tweets made McEnroe ~shooketh,~ but the reality is that women have been slaying for centuries. Here are just some of the real-life Wonder Women who kill the game:

First of all, let's go back to Serena. The GOAT won the 2017 Australian Open, her 23rd Grand Slam Singles Title, while pregnant. #ICONIC

Recipe for liberation as a woman: eat five man buns with heads still attached, claim new power

And stronger.

Behind every strong woman is 5 other strong women who proofread her email real quick when they had a second

And if all else fails, it's good to set a little reminder.
