Serena asks McEnroe for respect after comparison

Serena Williams Is A Friggin' Pregnant Goddess In Nude 'Vanity Fair' Shoot

"Am I having a baby?" she said.

McEnroe did not apologize for the statements, which he said he would not do earlier Tuesday, and instead told Colbert the story behind what prompted his comments about Williams.

But Ms Williams nine-month hiatus hasn't shielded her from the incessant debate over where she would rank on a hypothetical list of "greatest athletes of our time". Williams tells McEnroe, "I adore and respect you", but asks him to "please please keep me out of your statements that are not factually based". The world number one female played in the game instead and lost to Riggs 6-2 6-1.

'I don't know what to do with a baby. I think that's really what it boils down to.

"They might say women's basketball players", Colbert said. John McEnroe expressed his opinion, opening up a Pandora's Box in the process. "This is not something that has been earth shattering, that I feel there's a difference in the level of the women and the men".

Now let's follow up on a remark by John McEnroe. "And I think that deep down we're talking about something - I can't even believe we're talking about it".

"It sort of took me aback".

When she saw the results, Williams revealed, "I did a double take and my heart dropped".

Williams said she intends to return to the pro tennis circuit in January next year. The men are a lot faster and they serve harder, they hit harder, it's just a different game. You don't mix up the divisions. However, John McEnroe, a retired tennis player considered one of the greats, doesn't seem to have his head around this yet.

The whole issue of where certain women would rank on the men's tour is largely irrelevant, which McEnroe acknowledged.

Williams was examined by a doctor who assured her she could play the Australian Open without harm to the fetus.

Considering just how much more history and money Serena has made, she no longer felt the need to have another exchange with the tennis legend. He won four US Open and three Wimbledon singles titles.
