McEnroe suggests men vs women contest to solve Serena debate

McEnroe suggests men vs women contest to solve Serena debate

Williams was not about to play ball with McEnroe, calling his ignorance out on Twitter with respectful yet pointed tweets. That was chum in the water.

Neither did he rule out that a female player would one day be able to outshine the world's best male players, saying: "Maybe at some point a women's tennis player can be better than anybody". But now that the expecting tennis superstar is six months into her pregnancy, she is just as nervous as ever about becoming a mom.

"You can't be serious", Colbert said.

The 35-year-old player took to social media to share the interview with her fans, writing: "A must read article". She's - I think she was doing a tongue-in-cheek as well. I do, but the reality of what would happen would be I think something that perhaps it'd be a little higher, perhaps it'd be a little lower.

Heavily pregnant Serena Williams has admitted she has no clue on looking after a baby. He shared, "I felt like a door had been opened to a person who made me want to be my best self".

The man ranked 701 in the world says he'd also be confident of beating Serena Williams.

McEnroe is right, of course, but. who cares?

Though Williams kept the pregnancy relatively under wraps following her Australian Open victory, she accidentally revealed her baby bump in April via Snapchat. Both are silly debates, truly deserving of "you can not be serious".

The tennis champion finds herself on the cover of the July edition of the american magazine "Vanity Fair" held of Eve, more than 25 years after the actress has done the same in 1991. She has, he points out, earned more than $84 million in prize money and almost twice that in endorsements and appearance fees. She told Vogue at the 2017 Met gala in May that she and Ohanian are keeping their unborn child's sex a "surprise".

She confessed in the interview that her pregnancy "just doesn't seem real". She said she had felt off her game, but thought her hormones were acting up. I'm sure the men would be all for this. When we do that to women, it takes away from their greatness. One of those barriers is the way we are constantly reminded we are not men, as if it is a flaw.

"I've never heard John say anything absolutely stupid - he knows his stuff". Is Tiger? Federer? Why not? McEnroe, who last won a major championship in 1984, is a feminist when it comes to advocating for equal pay for women and men in tennis.

Of the two stories, Serena on the cover of Vanity Fair has more substance and certainly more staying power.
