Serena Williams Slams John McEnroe's Ranking Comments, Says 'Please Keep Me Out of Your Statements'

Serena Williams is responding to John McEnroe‘s comments about her ranking in tennis.

The 35-year-old tennis player took to Twitter to fire back at at the former tennis player after he said that she would only rank “like 700 in the world” among male tennis players.

“Dear John, I adore and respect you but please please keep me out of your statements that are not factually based,” Serena tweeted.

John did say that he thinks Serena is the best female tennis player in the world, but thinks it would be a “different story” if she played in the men’s circuit.

“Best female player ever – no question,” John said. He added, “If she played the men’s circuit, she’d be, like, 700 in the world.”

Serena also tweeted, “I’ve never played anyone ranked ‘there’ nor do I have time. Respect me and my privacy as I’m trying to have a baby. Good day sir.”
