McEnroe then invoked the classic TV show The Honeymooners and used the famous quote, "Me and my big mouth!" "It's a little bit like that", McEnroe said. "And she followed up with, 'Why do you have to say female tennis player?"

While he didn't apologize, he clarified his remarks and made the analogy that women basketball players aren't compared with Michael Jordan.

And, no, he was offering no apology for the Serena comment, just as he had declined to do on "CBS This Morning". The August issue of Vanity Fair will have tennis player Serena Williams on the front page, who is expecting her child with Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, the ethnic Armenian entrepreneur. "I don't think my story is over yet", she told the magazine.

"I would be happy to apologise to Serena if that makes you feel better, I think Serena is incredible". "I don't know why I'm always the guy they want to play". I'd have a better chance. "I have nothing. I've done absolutely nothing for the baby room". The American tennis star is taking time away from the sport for her pregnancy.

The 35-year-old has been forced to defend herself this week after John McEnroe claimed she'd struggle if she played on the men's circuit.

The four-time Olympic gold medalist and five-time WTA champion answered the question decisively in a recent interview with Vanity Fair: "If I were a man, then it wouldn't be any sort of question", she said. If that weren't enough, she can also be seen posing naked with her pregnant belly bump on the cover of 'Vanity Fair Magazine'. At present, Andy Murray is the current top ranked ATP Tour player while Uzbekistan' Temur Ismailov holds down the 500th spot.

"Respect me and my privacy as I'm trying to have a baby", she added in a subsequent tweet.

McEnroe tried to keep things as light as possible in response to Colbert and the hostile crowd.
