John McEnroe says this 5-foot-2 Egyptian guy would be an even match for tennis superstar Serena Williams

While being interviewed on the radio over the weekend, former tennis great John McEnroe said Serena Williams, widely considered the best female tennis player of all time, would be ranked No. 700 if she were on the men’s tour.

Headlines and tweets have been volleyed back and forth since.

McEnroe’s controversial statement raises a question: Who is the No. 700–ranked man in the world? Issam Haitham Taweel. There’s “no bio available” for him on the official ATP World Tour website, but according to Wikipedia he is a 27-year-old Egyptian who started playing tennis at the age of 13. Also, he stands just 5-foot-2.
