John McEnroe has his opinion and his daughters have another.
Amid ongoing controversy and backlash surrounding the retired tennis star's recent comments about Serena Williams, McEnroe was offered the chance to address the situation further during a sit-down on The Late Show.
While face to face with host Stephen Colbert Tuesday night, the father of six revealed Williams' fans weren't the only ones unhappy with his comments. "It didn't go over big with my daughters, either," he quipped to Colbert.
Then, on Tuesday, he doubled down on his claims during an interview on CBS This Morning and said he would not apologize. "It's not necessary. I didn't know it would create controversy."
"Do they say that about girl basketball players—that they're as good as Michael Jordan, for example?" he asked Colbert Tuesday night. "They might say women's basketball players," Colbert retorted as the audience cheered. "I'm still on air tomorrow. You get to leave."
While the argument remained in a TV limbo, it seems McEnroe's daughters are not on his side. "My girls don't think I can beat her now. I thought I could beat her," he said, referencing past comments he's made. "She's pregnant, so maybe I should play her now—I'd have a better chance," McEnroe continued with mixed response from the audience.
