Serena Williams slams John McEnroe’s controversial ranking comments

Scott Clarke / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) — One day after tennis icon and analyst John McEnroe said that if Serena Williams played on the men’s tour, she’d be ranking 700, the female star fired right back.

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

Williams, 35, continued, “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.”

For his part, McEnroe told CBS This Morning on Tuesday that he now puts Williams at number five in the all-time rankings.

Although McEnroe said earlier that he wouldn’t apologize, the 58-year-old did wish Williams well.

“Serena, have a great time with the baby,” he said.
