Tuesday, Joe Namath weighed in on John McEnroe’s controversial comments about Serena Williams being ranked somewhere around the 700th best tennis player if she played on the men’s circuit.
McEnroe’s ranking received a tweet from Williams telling him to keep her out of his “statements that are not factually based.”
Dear John, I adore and respect you but please please keep me out of your statements that are not factually based.

Namath said on Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Company” that while he is a Serena Williams fan, he cannot “argue” with McEnroe.
“[I]’m a Serena fan, you know,” Namath said. “I’ve loved watching her over the years. But being a male and knowing the difference in speed and quickness, and you know, strength, I’m not going to argue with John [McEnroe].”
