Serena Williams vs. John McEnroe


That’s a man, baby!

“Black Rules? Serena Williams, Venus Williams and Simone Biles were All Caught Juicing, Yet were All Permitted to Compete in Rio”; and

Yet another example of how the truth is held hostage to political correctness. John McEnroe has publicly stated that the Williams sisters would only rank around 700 in men's rankings. He did say that the ranking estimate could be vary but his point is well taken. Reality is that women can't compete with men in sports on an equal level. He simply stated the truth, and nowhere does he “mock” them , as the headline in this USA Today article states.

Now some people are "demanding" an apology but McEnroe is proving he's not just another mangina and refusing. Hope he sticks to his guns.

The Williams sisters did have a battle of the sexes in 1998 with Karsten Braasch, a German player ranked 203 in the world. He defeated them both 6-1 and 6-2. Observers at the scene noted how Braasch “took it easy” on them.

Now, the sisters were 17 and 18 years old at the time, but Venus was already ranked in the top 10 women, and Braasch was over 30. Andre Agassi and Bjorn Borg were essentially top 10 players at 18, and a player like Braasch would have had little chance against them at that age. It was unlikely Braasch could dominate any top-ranked male player, even if the latter were 18 years old. That gives you an idea of just how big the physical gap between men and women is. Just don't tell that to the PC gender fanatics who would have you believe there is no difference between men and women physically.

For those that still might argue the sisters got better as players, keep in mind that women mature faster than men physically, and by the time they hit 17 or 18 or so they have reached their peak of full development, while men still have an upward curve, due to their longer maturation rate and ability to build muscle quickly. Serena and Venus may have gotten more skillful as they aged but they wouldn't get any faster and any significant muscle growth would only be due to unnatural means. Their skills wouldn't be much help when a much stronger and faster man whips a tennis ball at them at a speed they simply can't react to.

By the way, after being beaten by Braasch, the sisters revised their challenge from: We could beat any guy over the 200 ranking group to any guy over 350. Personally, I doubt they could even break into the men's rankings, though they could probably compete at the junior college level.

When I hear things like this I always consider my own experiences playing against women in basketball. Occasionally, college-level players would make appearances on the courts where I played, even though I am only a somewhat above average gym rat ball player (though pretty good athletically) and 5' 10," 150 lbs. I could easily physically dominate every female I faced off against.

N.S.: Serena Williams has been heard from:

Serena Williams has told John McEnroe to “keep me out of your statements that are not factually based” after he reopened a timeworn debate by saying she would “be like 700 in the world” if she played on the men’s tour. That would put Williams (career earnings: $84.4m) just behind Brazil’s Wilson Leite (career earnings: $74,000) in the men’s world rankings.

Williams, who is set to be out of action until next year after announcing in April she is expecting her first child, said on Twitter: “Dear John, I adore and respect you but please please keep me out of your statements that are not factually based. I’ve never played anyone ranked ‘there’ nor do I have time. Respect me and my privacy as I’m trying to have a baby. Good day sir”. [Serena Williams tells McEnroe 'respect my privacy' after men's ranking views, by Tom Lutz, The Guardian, Tuesday, 27 June 2017, 04.08 EDT]
Regarding what McEnroe said, Serena Williams has no “privacy” to violate. She’s a public figure, and he can say what he likes. Even if she were not a public figure, but played sat a tennis court, and McEnroe saw her play and opined about her abilities, she would still have no “privacy” rights.

Translation: It’s a black thing. Like about 90% of blacks, Serena Williams believes that she can stick her nose in white folks’ business as a matter of whim, and they have nothing to say about it (i.e., they have no privacy), but that they must follow her orders.

Besides, as The Guardian’s Tom Lutz noted yesterday (idem), in 2013 Williams acknowledged how much better men are than women at tennis.
Williams has spoken on the subject in the past. In 2013, the American said she would lose to the current world No1, Britain’s Andy Murray, in “five to six minutes”.

“For me, men’s tennis and women’s tennis are completely, almost, two separate sports,” Williams said. “If I were to play Andy Murray, I would lose 6-0, 6-0 in five to six minutes, maybe 10 minutes. No, it’s true. It’s a completely different sport. The men are a lot faster and they serve harder, they hit harder, it’s just a different game. I love to play women’s tennis. I only want to play girls, because I don’t want to be embarrassed.”
So what’s with this “privacy” crap? Like I said, it’s a black thing, just like blacks saying that something that was o.k. five minutes ago, is now “racist,” or that something’s fine when blacks say or do it, but “racist” when a white says or does it.

Williams’ father Richard is an in-your-face racist, and the apple didn’t fall far from the tree.

I was going to post something on this because Lesta made a lot of noise about it last night.
"John McEnroe riling up tennis fans EVERYWHERE with his comments about Serena Williams...and he won't back down."
I thought,did he call her an ugly nig or comment on her white husband?
No.He just said she can't compete with most men.Very few people remember that 65 year old Bobby Riggs BEAT hall of famer Margaret Court years ago.Just on that instance alone,but extended further on simple biological facts,he is correct.
But as was opined here accurately,the REAL point is this:Blackie thinks she can call the shots on free speech--which is just a microcosm of Democratic philosophy.
McEnroe then said he wouldn't take back any of his non-controversial opinions.Maybe he should REALLY rile up Serena and call her a dumb n....."
Or play her--and whip her black ass.

I notice Serena didn't really address where she would stand in the men's rankings, just that she'd lose to Andy Murray very quickly. Well so would a lot of much lower ranked male players. Earlier in their career they were bragging about being able to compete with male players, I think it was youthful trash talking that they felt the need to engage in, but also over time realizing it was absurd to think they could compete with men on any kind of equal basis. Something tells me they might still be reluctant to admit they wouldn't even be able to compete on the men's circuit, I don't think they could even make the rankings.

Mostly I sent this not so much that the Williams sisters had the erroneous notion they were good enough to compete with men but that there are so many PC knuckleheads out there that are outraged that John McEnroe actually spoke truth rather than following unspoken PC ideology which dictates you must see everyone as being equal in everything, no matter how obviously wrong it may be. One of the most ridiculous things I see in the media is how movies and TV's show females fighting with men, somehow in the fantasy world of entertainment 120 lb. (always beautiful) females can go toe to toe with hulking 6" tall & 200 lb. plus men slugging and punching yet somehow come out on top. People actually start to believe this crap and if you dare suggest that women don't have the fight with men in that way then you are being "insensitive".
