John McEnroe Says Serena Wouldn’t Be A Top 700 Player Against Men
Hating on Serena Williams has literally become a national pastime in America. Every time she whoops another European azz the bigots, racists, misogynists and outright haters crawl out of the dustiest, mustiest and crustiest corners of the internet to spew hate on Compton’s c-walkin’ champion.
Today, we add to that list of haters tennis great John McEnroe.
During an interview with NPR, McEnroe took a moment to try to knock Serena down a few pegs by essentially quoting Jay Z’s “she’s aaight, but she’s not real” lyric.
Mayo Mc says that if Serena were playing against people with penises, she wouldn’t even be a top 700 player in the world according to RollingStone:
“Well, because if she was in, if she played the men’s circuit, she’d be like 700 in the world,” McEnroe said.
“That doesn’t mean I don’t think Serena is an incredible player,” he continued. “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. And on a given day, Serena could beat some players. I believe because she’s so incredibly strong mentally that she could overcome some situations where players would choke ’cause she’s been in it so many times, so many situations at Wimbledon, The U.S. Open, etc. But if she had to just play the circuit – the men’s circuit – that would be an entirely different story.”
Don’t be too surprised though, this isn’t Johnny boy’s first ride at this rodeo
We think this packet’s expiration date has past already. Gotta toss it in the trash.
