When John McEnroe Didn’t Put Respect On Her Name

Back in 2017, fellow American tennis player John McEnroe said in an NPR interview that if Williams “played in the men’s circuit, she’d be like [ranked] 700 in the world.”

Since Williams is one of the best athletes in the world regardless of gender, she kindly reminded McEnroe about her status.

“Dear John, I adore and respect you but please please keep me out of your statements that are not factually based,” tweeted Williams, then an expectant mother. “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.”
