Margaret Court has made some very unsavory and unstatesmanlike comments recently directed at the gay community. She has expressed her position on gay marriage by refusing to fly Qantas (an iconic Australian airline) on the basis that the airline supports gay marriage. Even worse, she has suggested that gay people are influenced by the "devil". She should be a role model and a great ambassador tor tennis given her incredible on court achievements. I propose that she is banned entry from all professional tennis tournaments going forward.

Note that Ilie Nastase has been placed under a provisional ban by the International Tennis Federation for an ill-judged joke about the skin colour of Serena Williams’s baby. I believe that Margaret Court's comments are equally, if no more damaging, disrespectful and do nothing for the concept of equality.
