Serena Williams Responds To John McEnroe Diss

Published: Tuesday 27th Jun 2017 by David


Serena Williams has stepped up and out to defend her talent after it was questioned by the 58-year-old tennis icon John McEnroe.

The heavily pregnant athlete took to Twitter to respond to an insult McEnroe threw her way when he said:

If she played the men’s circuit she’d be, like, 700 in the world.

That doesn’t mean I don’t think Serena is an incredible player, and I suppose anything’s possible; maybe at some point a women’s tennis player can be better than anybody.

I just haven’t seen that in any other sport, and I haven’t seen it in tennis. If she had to just play the men’s circuit, it would be an entirely different story.

How she responded?

    Well said Serena. His misogynist comment was uncalled for, and reeks of jealously…

    This is why he’s mad though. Seeing as how you have by far eclipsed the top mens player

    >Serena Williams: 23 Grandslams, 14 GS doubles, 2 mixed GS doubles, 4 Olympic Golds, has won 4 Slams in a row TWICE, and the only player to have a “A career golden Slam & a career golden doubles slam”…

    >Roger Federer: 18 Grand slams and a doubles Gold.

    >Serena’s competition: Venus, Seles, Capriati, Davenport, Hingis, Maresmo, Clijsters, Henin, Kuznetsova, Sharapova, Azarenka, Kvitova, Kerber, etc..all of whom are multiple grand slam champions.

    >Federer’s competition: Roddick, Philoposos, Hewitt, Nalbandian, which is laughable,…now when Nadal and Novak came around, he hardly won any slams at all.

    With that said, it’s Serena Williams and the rest..Aka the greatest athlete of all time.

    She should have left out the “adore & respect you” & “good day sir” when she responded. Those people never show us any respect or class when they’re spitting on our names & legacies, so she shouldn’t give them any respect when responding to their bullsh*t. Black folks needs to stop all that take-the-high-road nonsense. You can’t stay clean when you’re dealing with jealous dirt.

    But this isn’t surprising. John McEnroe has been a misogynist, racist piece of sh*t since his heyday, so this isnt shocking.
