What Had Happened Was: 6/28/17 Oh, you didn’t know? We got you.

GAME. BLOUSES.

Former tennis star John McEnroe fired a shot at Serena Williams, the greatest of all time, aka the GOAT, about how she wouldn’t crack the top 700 if she were in the men’s circuit.

The day after telling McEnroe to keep her name out of his mouth and let her enjoy her pregnancy in peace, Williams POPPED OUT on the August cover of Vanity Fair for a maternity shoot. The timing of this serve could not be any better.

For McEnroe, the worst part of this is, as a professional athlete, he knows he could’ve punted on the question — which was bad to start with, because why are you qualifying how great Williams’ accomplishments are by asking if they’d translate to the men’s game?

But he didn’t take that step back, and instead he played himself. All McEnroe had to do was pause for a second and consider that Williams not only holds the record for most Grand Slam singles titles (23) in the Open era, and is only one behind Margaret Court for the all-time lead, but she snapped the tie with Steffi Graf while pregnant.
