John McEnroe refuses to apologise to Serena Williams

Williams has won the most grand slam singles titles in the professional era, five more than Swiss Roger Federer, the most prolific victor in the men's game.

Does anyone remember Serena appearing on the Letterman show and saying if she played Andy Murry she would be defeated 6-0,6-0 in about 15 minutes?

Speaking to CBS' "This Morning," McEnroe told host Norah O'Donnell that he will not apologize for the comments he uttered on NPR on Sunday.

"Why don't you combine ..."

John McEnroe's opinion is that she would not be ranked very high on the men's pro tennis circuit.

Williams responded Monday via Twitter to comments McEnroe made during a weekend interview with NPR to promote his latest book.

"I don't know what to do with a baby".

What's worse is that he didn't stop there with his unprovable notion that she would rank so low among male tennis players.

"She is pregnant; I'm not", he named as one of the reasons he could beat her.

"I think she's doing it tongue in cheek as well and I think deep down we're talking about something..."

"I would now be about 1,200 in the world".

The top-ranked Murray had been scheduled to play two matches at the Aspall Tennis Classic exhibition event at Hurlingham Club this week following his first-round loss at the Queen's grass-court tournament last week.

"If she played the men's circuit she'd be like 700 in the world", he said.

It was only at the urging of pal Jessica Steindorff did the sporting ace agree to take a pregnancy test in early January - mainly to shut her friend up.

When she saw the results, Williams revealed, "I did a double take and my heart dropped".

The pregnant 35-year-old tennis pro stripped down for famed photographer Annie Leibovitz after announcing she's expecting her first child with fiance Alexis Ohanian.

McEnroe also said people ask him all the time if he thinks he could beat Williams. But at any rate, I believe I have some ability left and I had pride when I played.

The French team of Kristina Mladenovic and Richard Gasquet beat Federer and Bencic to seal a spot in last year's Hopman Cup final, then beat USA pair CoCo Vandeweghe and Jack Sock to win.
