[What if] Serena Williams versus John McEnroe

[What if] Serena Williams versus John McEnroe

The late-night personality read his comment out loud, which drew audible boos from the audience: If Williams had "played the men's circuit, she'd be like 700 in the world". But now that the expecting tennis superstar is six months into her pregnancy, she is just as nervous as ever about becoming a mom.

After describing Williams on USA radio station NPR as the greatest female player of all time, McEnroe was asked why he had not simply said greatest player.

Speaking to CBS' "This Morning," McEnroe told host Norah O'Donnell that he will not apologize for the comments he uttered on NPR on Sunday. To solve the problem, why don't you combine the men and women to play together.

In a new interview with Vanity Fair magazine, Serena says that she was so shocked to find out that she was pregnant that she took several pregnancy tests just to make sure. "And then we don't have to guess", he said as quoted by TOI.

Williams, who shared an image of the cover and one of the accompanying shots on her Instagram page, was photographed exclusively for the magazine by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.

"People always ask me, 'Can you beat Serena Williams?'" McEnroe said.

Williams wrote on Twitter:"Dear John, adoring and respecting you, please put me out of your non factually based statements, please". I'd have a better chance, but either way, I wish her the absolute best. "I had planned on winning Wimbledon (her third straight) this year".

"She's pregnant so maybe I should play her now", McEnroe said, adding that his daughters disagreed.

Does anyone remember Serena appearing on the Letterman show and saying if she played Andy Murry she would be defeated 6-0,6-0 in about 15 minutes?

Serena also said in her interview that she's waiting to find out the baby's gender, but she invites all her fans to a guessing game. McEnroe explained, "I think she's absolutely tremendous", but he stands by his original statement. There are innate differences between men and women; men are generally faster and stronger, while women are generally more flexible.

It's worth noting she has 23 Grand Slam wins - that's a record for both women and men in Open Era history.
