Jon McEnroe believes that Serena Williams is the greatest female tennis player of all time after she wins a fifth Wimbledon singles title.

Three-time Wimbledon men's champion John McEnroe has claimed that Serena Williams is the greatest female tennis player of all time after she sealed a fifth singles title at the All England Club.

The 30-year-old, who beat Agnieszka Radwanska in three sets, is now fourth in the list of champions in the Open era after what was a 14th overall championship.

"I've seen them all, Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King, Chris Evert was a machine... Monica Seles, Steffi Graf, but I believe we're watching the greatest female player that's ever played this game," McEnroe told BBC Sport.

"It's an elite, exclusive and an amazing club that she's part of."

Williams's previous triumphs at SW19 came in 2002, 2003, 2009 and 2010.
