A post shared by Serena Williams (@serenawilliams) on
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.”
