After hearing of the 58-year-old former athlete's NPR
interview, Williams -- whoseVanity Fair cover
was released on Tuesday morning -- responded to the remarks on Twitter. "Dear John, I adore and respect you but please, please keep me out of your statements that are not factually based," she wrote. "I've never played anyone ranked 'there' nor do I have time. Respect me and my privacy as I'm trying to have a baby. Good day sir."
