The baseball shortstop got the time to mock the tennis legend while she was in Florida and decided to go watch a baseball game between the Marlins and Jeter’s New York Yankees.

Derek Jeter put Williams on the spot!!

When the athletes got asked to talk about their dynasties, it was the shortstop’s chance to speak. He said that he’d seen Serena Williams at a game rooting for the Marlins.

Derek Jeter saw the tennis legend rooting for the opposition team while the Yankees were playing against the Marlins. So when he plainly questioned seeing her rooting for the Marlins, she simply said that she was already in Florida; and so went to the game.

Then, Jeter said, “You were rooting for the Marlins, I saw you.” To this, Williams had to save herself at the point and said, “I was rooting for baseball.”
