I have done worse: John McEnroe defends Serena Williams

The seven-time Grand Slam champion John McEnroe believes that Serena Williams behaved correctly during the US Open final against Naomi Osaka. Serena argued with the chair umpire Carlos Ramos but speaking to Channel 9 McEnroe stressed that she should have not been published.

'Look at the world that we live in. You’re going to sit there and tell me what Serena Williams did on the court is comparable to the insanity that we’re living in right now? I mean, come on. Give me a break.

I don’t think she went too far. She obviously was getting her derriere kicked (but) I didn’t think it was that extraordinary. I’ve done worse myself,' admitted McEnroe, who will be part of the Australian Open commentary team in January 2019.

Meanwhile Marin Cilic commented on his Davis Cup win against France in Lille: 'This is something we’ve been working towards for many years. We’ve had our ups and downs and we’ve had some tough times but we always believed we could win the Davis Cup.' Borna Coric played an important role in the final as well, beating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Friday in the second singles rubber.

'I’ve been part of this team since 2013 so I didn’t have to wait quite as long as Marin for the victory', said the 22-year-old. 'It’s been tough at times, but this is the cherry on the top. ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
