Venus and Serena Williams' bonding remarkable, says John McEnroe

New York, May 6 (ANI): John McEnroe finds it hard to understand how Venus and Serena Williams get along so well, despite being competitors.

At a screening of "Venus and Serena" at IFC Center on Thursday, the court legend said that he could understand at least to a small degree what Venus, as the older sister, was going through, as he also has a brother [Patrick] that played professional tennis.

He added that the way Venus has treated Serena all these years and been behind her through thick and thin is remarkable, and confessed that he would have dusted his brother off and told him to take a friggin' hike if he'd started beating him.

McEnroe continued that the little brother in his family doesn't beat the older brother, and that will never happen as long as he lives.

He added that he'd never lose to Patrick.

Before the screening of the film, guests had cocktails hosted by Graydon Carter and Anna Wintour at the Beatrice Inn. (ANI)
