"Margaret. Enough is enough," Dellacqua tweeted on Friday, posting a photo of a Court newspaper letter to the editor.

In the letter, the 74-year-old Court laments the birth of Dellacqua's child in a same-sex relationship.

"It is with sadness that I see that this baby has seemingly been deprived of a father," Court, a Christian pastor, wrote.

Dellacqua is in France and has progressed to the doubles semi-finals of the WTA event in Strasbourg with compatriot Ashleigh Barty.

She spoke out a day after Court announced she will stop using Qantas "where possible" in protest at the airline's promotion of same-sex marriage.

Court has been a critic of homosexuality and same-sex marriage for decades.

Retired tennis player Martina Navratilova has called for Melbourne's Margaret Court Arena to be renamed, while Tennis Australia said Court's views on gay rights do not align with the governing body's.
