  1. Serena's fitness is like Oprah's. Fluctuation. If it was like Annika Sorenstam, it would be higher. But men stay in shape all year around.

  2. You can't pile on him for stating a fact. Watch a marathon and see how the first several hundred to finish are men, or Iron man times, or weight lifting weights. It's not an insult to state a fact.

  3. What he said is true. She is the best womens player. If she played Federer it would be 6-0 6-0. Maybe she would get a game but i doubt it. There is a reason we have the WNBA too. Its not a secret why women dont play in the NBA. Her serve and power is amazing. In the mens game its below average and her movement would be well below the other men. She is 5'9 and weighs 155. This is well below almost all other men. The average for men is 6'2 and 180 lbs. Some men are 6'9 and 225.

  4. I don't see anything controversial in his statement. If anything, 700 might actually be a bit optimistic. Serena, as well as the likes of Pliskova, can serve big and probably hit harder than even some top men. However, when it comes to consistency, men's tennis is a different ball game. Anyone who has watched both can attest to that. Men's tennis is much cleaner, there are a lot less random unforced errors etc, which ultimately makes the difference. So the news lady, who rolls her eyes at the 700 ranking, clearly knows nothing about tennis.

  5. He is right…. she can not win one grand slam in men't circuit…. she can not run….. so any men player will have fun seeing her breaking her ankle or knee by making her run back and forth on the court…. hahahahahaha Johnny Mac is a genius and he exactly knows what he is talking about!!

  6. I believe it just like Steven A. Said that's why it's separate men's and women. What would happen if you had Federer vs. Williams. No comparison or how about this Rhonda Rowsy vs. Chuck Liddell… She'd be past out in the first 20 seconds.

  7. I forgot, in this day in age we have to pretend that there is no difference between men and women. The fact that what he said was questioned in the first place is what is astounding. He said shes the BEST woman IN THE WORLD. What else do you want? Oh, I forgot we cant acknowledge the fact that shes a woman. This is getting sad and pathetic.

  8. It's just a ploy folks, to try to set up another "Battle of The Sexes" match (like Riggs vs. King). It would be a big payday for them both if they get it arranged. 😉

  9. The people comprised of the "far-left," for surely it's only idiots like that who'd be offended by this statement, need to realize stupidity like this DRIVES people AWAY from their point-of-view. For nearly 30 years I identified with the "left," but in the last couple of years they have sent me away, running and screaming. Now, I'm MUCH more conservative because I've caught a glimpse of what they'd turn the world into, assuming they have their way.

  10. my brother played Mcenroe at the US Open and I know that Chris Evert when she was number one in the World couldn't get a game off her little brother when he was 16

  11. HE KNOWES BETTER THEN TO SAY THAT. MCENROE LOOKING FOR SOME ATTENTION.HE COULD SAY SHES THE BEST TENNIS PLAYER.THE SPORT OF TENNIS WAS AT THE TIME THE WILLIAMS SISTERS CAME UP TENNIS WAS AT A DECLINE.THE SPORT OF TENNIS WAS LOOKING FAR N BEYOND FOR A STAR TO REPRESENT TENNIS. WELL TENNIS DID HAVE THE WILLIAMS SISTERS BUT THE FEDERATION KEPT ON LOOKING.THE WILLIAMS SISTERS CAME IN TO THE PROFESSIONAL CIRCUIT N TENNIS SKY ROCKET BUT THE TENNIS FEDERATION HAD DIFFRENT INTENSIONS THEY THREW EVERY OPPONENT AT THOSE SISTERS N THEY KEPT KNOCKING THEM DOWN. WINNING N WINNING WAS N IS THE ONLY WAY TENNIS WOULD RECOGNIZE THE SISTERS, AFTER A WHILE SERENA WILLIAMS JUST TOOK OFF N NEVER LOOK BACK SHE DESTROY EVERY OPPONENT SHE FACED.THERE IS NO QUESTION HOW IMPORTANT SERENA WILLIAMS IS TO THE SPORT OF TENNIS.MUHAMMAD ALI DOMINATED N REVIVED THE SPORT OF BOXING,MICHAEL JORDAN DOMINATED AND REVIVED BASKETBALL,TIGER WOODS DOMINATED AND REVIVED GOLF N SERENA WILLIAMS DOMINATED AND REVIVED TENNIS, IN SPORTS THIS IS TRUE THERE IS A PERIOD WHEN STARS GET OLD N NEW YOUNG ATHLETICs STEPS UP TO REVIVE THE SPORT,IN TENNIS IT IS SERENA WILLIAMS N PERHAPS ARGUABLY THE GREATEST SPORT ATHLETE N WHY SIMPLE NO OTHER SPORT ATHLETE HAS DOMINATED THEIR SPORT LIKE SERENA HAS N U CAN PUT JOHN MCENROE ON THE LIST NOT EVEN HE DID IT THIS LONG.MCENROE ALWAYS HAD N ISSUE WITH WOMEN ATHLETES PERIOD.

  12. Yeah this shouldn't be controversial state, mainly because he was asked a question and answered it honestly. What I admire about women's tennis compared to other women's sports is that it is genuinely entertaining.

  13. Serena could care less now and in the future! She will be in the history books of sports forever! Her endorsements will never end ! Yeah! 😋… Then her child will play and make macenroe eat his racket if he's still alive and coherent that is …

  14. Men have 40% more upper body strength than woman which is fact. However women tend to have more powerful legs than men for supporting the extra weight of pregnancy. So why aren't women faster than men? The gap between the fastest men and women at every level is 9 to 10% but you would think women would be better than men in that physical aspect.

  15. I bet John at his best, against Martina Navratilova at her average–she would wipe the floor with him. So yes, he has seen a female player far better than any of the men of her time.

  16. Lmfao women calm down. She is the best WOMENS tennis player of all time. But he's right here. Serena is great. I will not debate that at all.

  17. News Flash: Men are superior to women in some regards, and women are superior to men in some regards. I think people need to understand the difference between "Equality" and "Equal."

  18. MISLEADING!!! If you actually listen to the QUESTION that was asked of him, it was clearly the reporter who was pursuing an agenda here. McEnroe was just answering a question honestly.

  19. couldve said most winningest player. best player would mean best without regard to gender. macs correct. simple.

  20. The question is, why is the need to make the comparison??? What is McEnroe's motive or intention behind, not only stating the obvious….but initiating something that's both irrelevant and not going to happen?

  21. Female? There's no proof of that. He got it right with the 700 ranking. He (Serena) started on the hormone drugs early in life, causing him to less of a man but still superior to women in strength and athleticism.

  22. Each competitor in ANY sport – golf, tennis, NBA, football, soccer etc – should be judged purely on how they stack up against their fellow competitors. Roger Federer is the best men's tennis player, because he's achieved the most success playing against men. Serena Williams is the best women's tennis player, because she's achieved the most success playing against women. You can't even compare the two because they've faced different competition. But, Serena has done the better job against HER competition than Federer has against HIS competition. 23 Grand Slam titles to Roger's 18.

    Serena is the G.O.A.T. It's not gender-related. It's facts.

  23. shalom. USA today is fake news I think he meant the best transgender in tennis LOL!!! stupid corporations

  24. Serena herself had said that mens is tennis is a whole different thing that she wouldn't be able to compete in, McEnroe's statement is a non-issue

  25. Lol she would not even make top 10,000 women can't handle the serve of a man let alone his game.if serena played any man it would be 6-0,6-0,6-0

  26. People who don't watch tennis don't understand how good the top male tennis players are. They think just cuz she's Serena she would match up with anyone. And if u watch tennis I know you agree with me.

  27. this is really just clickbait i know, but these people are delusional, he's being nice saying 700. If you go by the universal tennis rating, which doesn't account for gender, she's more in line with the top to middle mens college players. and thats like totally fine.

  28. He didn't need to say 700, but still let's not make a deal out of this. Yes, men's and women's abilities are generally different. That's just how it is. Nothing to be offended at.

  29. Wow…this is such a joke there is nothing here to even talk about..for the love of God females need to get over their issues this is so sad..Gender equality or gender jealousy…give me a break. Serena is a Transgender we all know it anyways.

  30. When John said 700 I was like that's generous. I know college players at my school who can destroy her.

  31. these idiots think that 700 is way too down..hahaaah..just play with the 700th male tennis player and then u will see

  32. Serena Williams is a strong athlete
    I know strong athletes – I played Rugby Union for fun
    People like Serena dont get where they are with pettiness
    I know that words hurt and bipolar and such can effect people,not that Serena is as far as I know
    But to say that someone like Serena Williams is a victim because of this very true logical statement – is the real insult
    Comparing males to females in ability physically – I'd say 700th is GENEROUS!
    This guy has done nothing wrong, hes probably absolutely correct – and Serena Williams is NOT a victim!

  33. john is right. i don;t think there is anything controversial about what he said. serena is the best WOMENS tennis player in the world period. but lets face it…she wouldn't last three sets against anyone of the big four (federer, murray, nadal, djokovic).

    this whole battle of the sexes thing is so old now. Political correctness is too out of control.

  34. What is the controversy? The McEnroe presence on CBS This Morning, was uncomfortable to watch, basically 3 women trying to shame the guy in to an apology. The only point that he score was not giving one

    One of the problems of the feminist ideology, is that, they are comparing themselves to a minority a very successful men. The truly alphas in their respective fields. Those fields tend to be the most high paid, because there aren't a lot of people that can do those jobs with excellence.

    In Western countries today, the average female has an arguably better life than the average male, but they don't even consider this for debate, it's too subtle for their ideology.

  35. If Williams played the top males players she would be hard-pressed to win a point, forget about a game, set or match!
