Serena Williams
During an interview with Inside Tennis reporter Bill Simons, Williams shut down a bold act of sexism. 

Simons inappropriately asked her, "I have been waiting about 14 years to ask you this question. After the 2004 Wimbledon match with Maria [Sharapova], I had the opportunity to interview Donald Trump on his L.A. golf course, and he said that Maria’s shoulders were incredibly alluring and then he came up with his incredible analysis: that you were intimidated by her supermodel good looks. My question is: Have you ever been intimidated by anyone on a tennis court, and what are you thoughts about that occurrence?"

To which she expertly replied, "I honestly don't have any thoughts about that. I can't say I have been intimidated by anyone. That's all. That's it."
