Backhander to critic Billie Jean
THE husband of tennis legend Margaret Court (pictured) has given US great Billie Jean King a stinging backhander over her call for Margaret Court Arena to be renamed. Ms King urged Tennis Australia to remove Mrs Court’s name from the Melbourne arena named in her honour because of her outspoken opposition to same-sex marriage. Mr Court said his wife, now a Christian minister in Perth, was upset by the drama, and “had had enough” of the debate about her religious views. He said there should be “no thought of changing the name” of the arena.
