Margaret Court has delivered more controversial comments
And the 24-time Grand Slam champion delivered more shocking comments by saying transgender children were the work of "the devil" in another controversial interview.
Court, 74, won 11 Australian Open singles titles and is now a Christian pastor.
She sent shockwaves through the sport earlier this month after vowing not to fly on Qantas as she didn’t agree with the company’s support of same-sex marriage.
That led to calls for the Margaret Court Arena, at the Australian Open, to be renamed.
Legends Martina Navratilova and Billie Jean King led those pleas while Sam Stosur hinted yesterday that players may refuse to walk out the arena next year.

Court then carried out another latest interview with Vision Christian Radio where she delivered more outrageous remarks. She said: “When I was playing there was only a couple [of lesbians].
“But those couple that led took young ones into parties and things. What you get at the top is often what you'll get right through that sport.”
In regards to schoolchildren who struggled with their sexual identities, Court said they must have been raised by parents who "don't care”.
And while talking about homosexuality, Court said it was an ungodly “lust for the flesh” and the tendencies are “all the devil”.
She added: “That's what Hitler did. That's what communism did. Get in the minds of the children. There's a whole plot in our nation and in the nations of the world to get in the minds of the children."
