Are you saying a fact that hurts someone's feelings should never be said so as to not offend?

I doubt Serena's feelings were hurt. On the other hand, why insult someone who is not even there, had zero to do with the conversation, and did not ask the question?

As I stated above, it would be different if she had the gall to ask the question about herself, "Do you think I am the greatest?" That would be presumptuous and deserving of ridicule.

Again, I said that I was not offended, nor did I care what he said. I'm just saying that it seems odd to attack someone who is not even present.

Her question was insulting and degrading to HIS accomplishments and all male players.  Massivley ignorant.  Like asking who is better Navy Mike or Ronnie Coleman.

I haven't read to the end of the thread yet, but I want to congratulate everyone on this not devolving into racism.

Agreed, it was insulting and degrading, but that doesn't mean that one automatically has to strike back with an equal or greater insulting and degrading comment. We are adults here, correct? At times, one must defend oneself; at other times, one can choose not to strike back.

It's obviously not for me to decide whether or not he should have said those words. You know, freedom of speech and all.

On the other hand, we all filter the truth in some way or another. Do you always strike back at others? I assume you pick your words carefully. Not to mention that Serena Williams was not even there, had zero to do with the conversation, and was not the one who asked the question. It would be different if Serena personally asked the question to him ("Do you think I am the greatest?"). Why insult a person who is not even there and who had zero to do with the conversation? Not very alpha.  Undecided Undecided Undecided

On calling Serena Williams the best female tennis player in the world

Garcia-Navarro: We're talking about male players but there is of course wonderful female players. Let's talk about Serena Williams. You say she is the best female player in the world in the book.

McEnroe: Best female player ever — no question.

Garcia-Navarro: Some wouldn't qualify it, some would say she's the best player in the world. Why qualify it?

McEnroe: Oh! Uh, she's not, you mean, the best player in the world, period?

Garcia-Navarro: Yeah, the best tennis player in the world. You know, why say female player?

McEnroe: Well because if she was in, if she played the men's circuit she'd be like 700 in the world.

He is just being honest.Fuck pc bullshit.

She asked him the question dumbass. He didn't bring it up. It's amazing how your every fucking instinct is wrong. You should go the George Costanza route and do the opposite.

It's because he is an idiot.

Am I offended by what he said? No
Do I care? No.

However, he could have easily said something like "she is the best female player in the world. However, she is not the best overall player because she is clearly not better than many of the men."

The 700th comment was a snide dig, and although it may be the truth, it didn't need to be said. The truth can sometimes not be said. Do you all always tell the truth? No.


Are you saying a fact that hurts someone's feelings should never be said so as to not offend?

She's equally an idiot. However, her question did not necessarily have to dictate his comment. He could have easily said "no, she's not the best player in the world because there are many men better than her." That's getting the point across that men are better without the the 700th comment.

Again,  I don't give a crap what he said, but the whole idea that he told the truth so it's okay is a dumb argument. Most ppl don't tell the 100% truth on a daily basis. We all filter ourselves.

Her question was insulting and degrading to HIS accomplishments and all male players.  Massivley ignorant.  Like asking who is better Navy Mike or Ronnie Coleman.
