John McEnroe once trolled Margaret Court

The Eurosport commentator once criticized the 24-time Grand Slam champion to look back on her honors and achievements and act on them. He even listed what was said “Only one thing is longer than Margaret Court’s list of tennis accomplishments: it’s her list of offensive and homophobic statements.” At the time, Court was in the headlines for her comments about LGBTQ and transgender children.

And even called the Aussie star a crazy aunt about the controversies she’s been around. He said, “Margaret Court is actually a ventriloquist who uses the doll’s Bible to say whatever she wants…Tennis Australia faces a dilemma – what do they do with their crazy aunt?”

The Commissioner of Tennis has also asked for it Williams to break her record so we can get past her. He said, “Serena, do me a favor: get two more Grand Slams this year and get to 25 so we can leave Margaret Court and her offensive views in the past where they both belong.”
