John McEnroe Will Not Apologize for His Comment on Serena Williams

Williams is a 23-time grand slam singles champion, and now ranked No.1, while McEnroe clinched just seven grand slams.

Asked if he would apologise to Williams, McEnroe told a U.S. chat show: "No".

"Why don't you combine ... I don't know, just say what I really felt, which is about what I think she would be".

Williams took to Twitter on Monday afternoon to reply to McEnroe's comments.

REUTERS/Benoit TessierSerena Williams tells John McEnroe "respect my privacy". She initially didn't tell him about her pregnancy and Ohanian thought that she has some health problems. "And I think that deep down we're talking about something - I can't even believe we're talking about it". "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", he said.

John McEnroe has proposed joint-sex tennis could work and feels no need to apologise for ranking Serena Williams "700th" in the men's game. But during an interview with CBS This Morning, he did say that if he were still playing today, he would probably rank himself as 1,200 in the world.

"Yeah, the best tennis player in the world", Garcia-Navarro said. In an interview with BBC, he said that McEnroe's statement was not meant as an attack on women and that it was based on a general fact, that men are stronger than men.

She took the pregnancy test six times as she could not digest the news easily. "Good day sir", she said in a separate tweet.

The 35-year-old tennis player has always looked like a miracle on the tennis court.

The French team of Kristina Mladenovic and Richard Gasquet beat Federer and Bencic to seal a spot in last year's Hopman Cup final, then beat US pair CoCo Vandeweghe and Jack Sock to win.

Garcia-Navarro asked why McEnroe would qualify statement by calling Williams the best female player in the world. And come January, she's planning to be back on the pro tennis circuit. At present, Andy Murray is the current top ranked ATP Tour player while Uzbekistan' Temur Ismailov holds down the 500th spot. "This is happening sooner than later, and it's going by so fast" she revealed.
