They should consider someone outside of Australia? And at the same time they could give Margaret Court the finger? The solution would obviously be naming it the Bill Tilden show court.

If there were a set criteria, they shouldn't take it away as freedom of speech. However, a business trying to sell tickets should strive to avoid offense, and these comments were clearly ignorant and offensive. I still think Guccione Stadium would be a good idea

I was under the impression she had the court named after her because of her achievements in tennis rather than her political views.

Shouldn't this be in Off Topic?
