American Serena Williams said that all tennis players “love” Andy Murray after the British player, number one in the world, corrected a journalist who asked him a question in a somewhat sexist way.
On Wednesday, after his defeat in the Wimbledon quarterfinals, Murray attended a press conference where a reporter told him that Sam Querrey – his executioner in that round – was “the first American to reach the semifinals of a Grand Slam since 2009 ».
“First American male player,” Murray immediately pointed out, alluding to the Grand Slam titles (23) that Serena Williams has won.
The youngest of the Williams, in fact, has risen with 12 of her 23 ‘majors’ since 2009, when the last American tennis player (male), Andy Roddick, reached the semifinals of a Grand Slam.
“There should be no female athlete who is not with Murray,” Serena Williams told ESPN.
“You have spoken on behalf of women’s rights. He has done it again. He is like that and that is why we love him. He has done a lot for us on the track. added the champion, who does not participate in this edition of Wimbledon because she is pregnant. AFP
