Serena Williams scored a stunning upset over No. 2 Anett Kontaveit in Round 2 of the 2022 US Open.

NEW YORK — Serena Williams may very well be the greatest athlete ever.
But even tennis’ shining superstar isn’t above joking about poop when the moment is right.
The 23-time Grand Slam champion pulled off a stunning upset over world No. 2 Anett Kontaveit Wednesday night during their second-round match at the US Open. And during the press conference after the three-set thriller, Williams was asked about a bathroom break between her second-set loss and third-set resurgence that seemingly brought her new life.
“Yeah, no, I just got lighter,” Williams said with a chuckle.
“Use your imagination,” she added with a smirk.
As members of the media began to laugh from the opposite side of the room, Williams quickly assured them that “it wasn’t number two.”
Then even Williams broke out in laughter. She closed her eyes and cringed a bit before shaking her head, seemingly in disbelief that she had just gone there after one of the most impressive — and closely watched — feats of her unrivaled tennis career.
“Continue,” the moderator then said into the microphone, eliciting more laughter from Williams and the press.
