SERENA POSES NUDE ON VANITY FAIR & CLAPS BACK AT JOHN MCENROEJune 27, 2017
The 35-year-old flashed her baby bump wearing nothing but a thong and belly chain. The tennis icon and fiance Alexis Ohanian are expecting their first child.
Serena has been making scandalous headlines and not for the amazing Annie Leibovitz photo, but for being the brunt of John McEnroe‘s latest tirade. Rude!
The outspoken tennis star told NPR that while Serena is an amazing female athlete if she played “the men’s circuit, she’d be like 700 in the world.” No he didn’t!
Now Serena has 23 Grand Slam titles and recently revealed she was pregnant when she won the Australian Open earlier this year. No man can do that!
Being the class act that she is, Serena responded to McEnroe’s diss in the most respectful way.
“Dear John, I adore and respect you, but please, please keep me out of your statements that are not factually based,” she tweeted. “I’ve never played anyone ranked ‘there’ nor do I have time. Respect me and my privacy as I’m trying to have a baby. Good day sir.”

During an appearance on CBS This Morning, McEnroe was asked if he’d like to apologize for his remarks and he said “no.”
He added: ““It was not necessary. I didn’t know it would create controversy.”

McEnroe then suggested that men and women should play against each other so “we wouldn’t have to guess” where everyone would rank. Paging Billie Jean King & Bobby Riggs!
Pregnant or not, our bets are on Serena taking it all!
