John McEnroe has always resented the Williams sisters.Why has he never said anything like that about Navratilova?And why compare men and women?Typical resentful white person!

I am not surprised that such comments are coming from McEnroe. Is this not the John McEnroe that used to abuse referees and fellow opponents at Wimbledon???

Why would she play in the men's category, is she a man? Pls sir John, have some respect for a strong black, because if you say any other thing other than what you just said, i'll take it up personally.
