Venus' 69th Grand Slam was abruptly ended in the first round by Britain's Johanna Konta, and she was later fined $5,000 for skipping her mandatory press conference.

"I don't know. If you want to, you can ask her. Yeah, I don't know. I wasn't here," Serena, 34, said when asked why her elder sister did not show up.
