Agreed. The successful players just deflect and give generic answers to

those BS questions. For a sport that appeals (relatively speaking) to cultural elites, the press corps tends to gravitate towards tabloid sensationalism, lobbing in "gotcha" questions in hopes that they will catch something salacious. 99 times out of 100, they get nothing.

They deliberately goad her because they know she's uncomfortable and want to provoke a reaction, which is twisted.

They're trying to get reactions like they get out of Isner, who, while he was never one of the great tennis players, is one of the all-time greats at entertaining press conferences.
