Evonne Goolagong is equal to the most decent champion tennis player Australia has ever had.

I acknowledge and respect Margaret Court as the Tennis Champion she has been, and as a fellow Christian, I respect her beliefs. However, I have a problem when someone like Margaret Court uses their name, platform, and religion to demonize a whole community, who already face discrimination, violence and hate, I'm sorry, but I would never associate a building with someone like her. I do hope that they change the stadium's name, because if I ever come down to see the Australian Open, and one of my favorite players has a match on that court, I would rather keep my pride and not set a toe in a tennis stadium, whose name is associated with hate. Also, let me make it clear that I'm American, and one of our greatest tennis legends is also a strong advocate and member of the LGBTQ+ Community. So from an ally to the LGBTQ+ Community of Australia, I'm with you all, you have my support!

Margaret Court is a vile, hateful bigot abd does not deserve her name given to that arena. Sport is to unite people, where people come together to celebrate; given her comments, attacks and attitudes towards the LGBTIQ community, she clearly does not espouse the virtues of the meaning of sport.

Je suis contre la discrimination et la haine et les propos de Madame Court sont blessants et insultants. Je soutiens l'égalité pour tout le monde. Madame Court ne représente pas les valeurs de respect et de tolérance. Madame Goolagong Cawley est un meilleure choix pour représenter le tennis australien.

Evonne represents values that we all support whereas Margaret Court is a bigoted and closed-minded person.
