Some Old Tennis Legend Had Some Not So Kind Words Regarding The Current Landscape Of The Sport


Former women’s tennis legend Margaret Court is apparently not too happy about the current landscape of the sport of tennis. Court, who has won more tennis grand slams than anyone in history with 24, has stirred up yet more controversy by claiming that tennis is “full of lesbians.” These remarks came less than a week after Court said she would refuse to fly Australia’s national airline Qantas because it supported same-sex marriage. Court, a 74-year-old Christian pastor, made her latest comments to Vision Christian Radio.

Let’s see what Twitter had to say about these comments by Court.



So apparently Court hasn't quite arrived yet to the 21st Century. Not sure what punishment will stem from this if any for Court. But it appears as if there is a lot of people out there calling for the Margaret Court Arena at the Australian Open to be renamed. One individual in particular who feels strongly about this is tennis legend Martina Navratilova, who is openly gay. Others who did not take kindly to Court's comments were Australia's top women's player, Samantha Stosur, its grand slam doubles finalist Casey Dellacqua, Tennis Australia, the operators of the Arena itself, and men's No. 1 Andy Murray.
