Homosexuality Margaret Court dragging tennis to "dark ages" - John McEnroe

Australian tennis great Margaret Court looks on during the official launch of the remodeled Margaret Court Arena at the Australian Open tennis championship in Melbourne Australia. At right in INTERVIEW-Tennis-Navratilova awaiting response from Australian Open organisers

This all happened after Court said she'd never fly Qantas again due to the company's support of same-sex marriage.

Court, 74, has been making headlines in recent weeks for a series of anti-LGBTI remarks she has been making including tennis being 'full of lesbians'.

Martina Navratilova, the 18-time major victor, renewed the call for renaming the Margaret Court Arena on Thursday after labeling the Australian's comments as "racist and homophobic". "They're just trying to figure out what to do, I think they're not quite sure what to do".

"It is now clear exactly who Court is: an wonderful tennis player, and a racist and a homophobe", Navratilova wrote.

Tennis Australia and the operator of the Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne and Olympic Parks, have distanced themselves from Court's views on gay marriage. Out athlete Martina Navratilova denounced Court's latest hateful tirade and called for a stadium named in Court's honor to drop her name.

It's said that the Wimbledon tournament may have faced calls to ban Court had she been attending this year (she isn't).


"I haven't heard or seen anything so we will see which way the ball rolls". Number one ― this is true, and who gives a fuck?

Dellacqua, who has two children with partner Amanda Judd, said Court was wrong to claim that her children "have been deprived of a father" and that such youngsters are not "given the best possible start in life".

Navratilova slammed Court, who once voiced support for apartheid, as "racist and a homophobe" on Thursday after the Australian said tennis was "full of lesbians" and that transgender children were victims of a Nazi-style plot. "This is half true and should we really give a f**k?", he said.

Andy Murray, Kei Nishikori, Stan Wawrinka, Marin Cilic, Simona Halep and Elina Svitolina all qualified for the quarter finals of the French Open 2017.

"It's not what you think". In other words, it is not just for what this person did on the field, on the court, in politics, arts or science, for instance, but also for who they are as human beings. "But since Andie's come along, it's a bit harder to manage the both of them".

"It's pretty obvious that the whole tennis community out here has pretty much the same opinion and we're going to all stand by that". Just think about that'.
