Court: Tennis is full of lesbians

Tennis legend Margaret Court has continued to turn heads with her stance on same-sex marriage.

Speaking to Vision Christian Radio in Australia, the 24-time grand slam winner lamented the rise of lesbians in tennis.  

"When I was playing there was only a couple [of lesbians]," said the 74-year-old, who is a Christian pastor.
 
"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."
 
"We're there to help them overcome. We're not against the people."

Court recently made the headlines for avoiding flying on Qantas Airlines in protest to its support of same-sex marriage. 

In the fallout, grand slam winner Martina Navratilova and Billie Jean King have called for the Margaret Court Arena at the home of the Australian Open to be renamed.

However, while Tennis Australia officials have distanced themselves from Court, they revealed the name would not be changed.
