Legendary Australian tennis player Margaret Court may have built up quite the status in her sporting career but this week the 74-year-old revealed that, off the court, her awesomeness is wanting somewhat.
Australians met Court's announcement on Thursday she would be boycotting Qantas over its marriage equality stance with disappointment, anger and ridicule laced with tennis-puns; not least because we had already gone to the effort of naming a stadium after her (an Australian knighthood, essentially).
And even it was keen to distance itself from her.
"Why are you choosing to fly Qantas?"
Me: The 100% guarantee that i will never accidentally run into Margaret Court on a flight

Now is a really good time to change Margaret Court Arena to Tina Arena Arena

Soon Margaret Court's only travel option will be Wicked Campers.
