John McEnroe says Serena Williams would be 700th in the world on men’s circuit

John McEnroe says Serena Williams would be 700th in the world on men’s circuit

Serena Williams has won 23 Grand Slams, more than anyone in Open Era history, and her tennis success has led many sports fans to label her the G.O.A.T: Greatest of All Time.

Yet, John McEnroe disagreed with this statement in a radio interview with NPR this weekend, stressing that he doesn’t think Williams deserves the title without including the word “female.”

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

Roger Federer impresses Ana Ivanovic

Roger Federer impresses Ana Ivanovic

Ana Ivanovic had a great time playing in the inaugural edition of the IPTL, the International Premier League. Easy to say so, as her team Indian Aces won the competition.

Just for one weekend, Ana had a chance to share the court with Federer. Apparently, Ana was very well-impressed by Federer’s attitude and elegance.

"Roger Federer is truly a great champion. He is an impressive figure on and off court. I also have to say that he is a very beautiful person, a true gentleman. He is a great man, I have no doubts about it. We had a chance to talk quite a bit while playing for the IPTL. We talked about family and how to cope with competing while having one. When you hear advice coming from such a champion, it is easy for you to accept it,” revealed Ana.

The Serb was very nervous about sharing the court with the Swiss, as she revealed herself. “It really wasn’t easy at the beginning” said the Serbian star smiling.
