Margaret Court: Tennis is ‘full of lesbians’, says Australian Grand Slam legend
Margaret Court has said “tennis is full of lesbians”, following a row over her earlier remarks on gay marriage.
Australian Court, a 24-time Grand Slam singles champion and now a Christian pastor, also said that transgender children were the work of “the devil”.
The 74-year-old caused controversy when she said she would not fly on Qantas “where possible” in protest at its support of same-sex marriage.
“When I was playing there was only a couple [of lesbians],” Court said.
“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.”
Speaking to Vision Christian Radio she added: “We’re there to help them overcome. We’re not against the people.”
