What did former tennis player John McEnroe say about Serena Williams?

John McEnroe said: "If she played the men's circuit she'd be, like, 700 in the world... That doesn't mean I don't think Serena is an incredible player, and I suppose anything's possible; maybe at some point a women's tennis player can be better than anybody... I just haven't seen that in any other sport, and I haven't seen it in tennis. If she had to just play the men's circuit, it would be an entirely different story.

Williams replied 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."
