Tennis Legend Margaret Court Boycotts Qantas Over Airline's Gay Marriage Support

But away from the court, Stosur is passionately backing Casey Dellacqua in her stance against Margaret Court after the legendary 24-times major victor created a firestorm with her public opposition to same-sex marriage.

The legendary Margaret Court's public opposition to same-sex marriage has sparked furious debate around whether the show court named in her honour at Melbourne Park should be changed.

"Enough is enough." Dellacqua included in the tweet an insulting letter Court wrote to a newspaper when Dellacqua and her partner Amanda Judd had a child.

Stosur was among those to retweet the post and solidified her support for her Dellacqua on Monday.
