Margaret Smith Court

Margaret Court AO, MBE (née Smith; born 16 July 1942), also known as Margaret Smith Court, is a retired world No. 1 professional tennis player. She is currently a Christian minister in Perth, Australia but is best known for her sporting career, in which she amassed more major titles than any other player in history. In 1970, Court became the first woman during the open era (and the second woman in history) to win the singles Grand Slam (all four major tournaments in the same calendar year)…


The #wta never includes Australian Margaret Smith Court in their G.O.A.T discussions eventhough she won 62 Slam singles events, more than anyone in the history of women's tennis, because some were won 'pre-open-era'. However, Pastor Margaret has claimed homosexuality has tarnished women's tennis & she has been vocal in her opposition to gay marriage, opinions which have put her offside with former WTA tour stars Martina Navratilova and WTA co-founder Billie Jean King.
