Tennis Australia to celebrate Margaret Court but oppose her personal views  enomania

Court won all four majors in 1970 during an illustrious career that yielded a record 24 grand slam victories and had called for recognition at next year's Open.

However, the 77-year-old, now a Pentecostal pastor in Western Australia, has attracted controversy for voicing opposition to same-sex marriage and saying tennis is 'full of lesbians.'

Such views prompted former rival Billie Jean King to call for the Australian's name to be stripped from Melbourne Park's Margaret Court Arena at last year's tournament.

However, in an open letter, Tennis Australia said it would not 'rewrite history'.

'Australia is fortunate that Margaret Court's extraordinary playing achievements form part of our national tennis history,' the letter read.

'Naturally, we will be recognizing Margaret and her incredible tennis record, and contrary to many reports, there is no plan to 'rewrite history'.'

Notably, the governing body reiterated its stance against Court's personal views which 'fracture our incredible tennis community.'

'We respect that everyone has a right to an opinion -- and a right to express it,' the letter added.

'Equally, we all share an obligation that while living our lives freely, we do not harm others, and we understand that there are consequences to our words.

'Publicly stated views of intolerance and demeaning language about others can have enormous impact, and are particularly hurtful and harmful to those who believe they are targeted.'

Court's record of 24 grand slam titles is unmatched in both the men's and the women's game. Serena Williams is second on the all-time list with 23, ahead of Steffi Graf's 22.

The Australian Open runs from January 14 to 27, 2020.
