John McEnroe is never one to shy away from controversy, so last night on the Jimmy Kimmel show the outspoken tennis great declared that he could beat women’s World No. 1 Serena Williams!
“I believe I could still take here,” McEnroe said about playing Serena. “If I lose, to God forbid, to a women then I’m not allowed into any men’s locker room for the next 15 years, or possibly the end of my life. So that’s part of why it’s intriguing.”
McEnroe, though, is 56!!
In 1998, lefty journeyman Karsten Braasch came off the golf course to beat both Williams sisters.
Said Braasch of the different between the men’s and women’s tour: “Both sisters are great tennis players and hit the ball extremely well. However, if you’ve been playing on the men’s tour there are certain shots you can play that are going to put them in difficulty. Try and put a lot spin on the ball – I was hitting the ball with a degree of spin they don’t face week-in, week-out. Another key is to chase down every shot. In our match, they were putting shots into the corners that on the women’s tour would be winners but I was able to return them.”
