Serena Williams clapped back at John McEnroe over the tennis great’s remark

McEnroe, a seven-time Grand Slam singles winner, called Williams the “best female player ever” in a radio interview. 

But asked why she should not be considered the best of all time, McEnroe added: “If she had to just play the circuit the men’s circuit that would be an entirely different story.” McEnroe, speaking on a tour to promote his new book “But Seriously,” said he would place Williams “like 700 in the world” on the ATP Tour.


Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam singles champion, however responded in two Twitter postings. “Dear John, I adore and respect you but please, please keep me out of your statements that are not factually based,” she wrote.

“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.”
