Sadly this isn’t Inverdale’s first sexist gaffe, in 2013 after Marion Bartoli’s Wimbledon victory, according to TIME he told Radio 5 listeners: "Do you think Bartoli’s dad told her when she was little ‘You’re never going to be a looker? You’ll never be a [Maria] Sharapova, so you have to be scrappy and fight."
As for Andy Murray, he recently penned an article on his blog L’Équipe, about being a feminist after he copped criticism for hiring former women's tennis champion Amélie Mauresmo as his coach.
"Well, if being a feminist is about fighting so that a woman is treated like a man then yes, I suppose I have. My upbringing means that I’m quite attuned to the whole thing. I came to tennis thanks to my mother. I always had a very close relationship with my grandmothers. I’ve always been surrounded by women. I find it easier to talk to them. I find it easier to open up to them. It’s a crying shame there aren’t more female coaches."
