Rothenberg was quick to respond to Brown’s tweet when he gave his opinion.
“If there is a positive side to Serena Williams’ retirement, it is that we no longer have to mention Margaret Court with any regularity. There is little reason to give this woman a platform to be optimistic about being ostracized (deservedly) for her hurtful words and actions,” Rothenberg replied.
“It’s not an issue of tennis players being ‘afraid of someone being a Christian’ as this article allows it to conclude. There are a lot of devoted Christians on the tennis tour who have been fully embraced and popular. The difference with Margaret Court is that she has always been an idiot” Rothenberg added.
The court has been widely criticized over the years for its controversial views on many different matters, such as public opposition to same-sex marriage and support for apartheid in South Africa during the 1970s.
