Andy Murray corrects journalist’s sexism

Andy Murray

Andy Murray, the British Tennis player, corrected a journalist who was saying that the US player Sam Querrey was the “the first US player to reach a major semi-final since 2009”. He reminded the journalist that he was only talking about male players, as there has been huge success since 2009 by female Americans. For instance since 2009, Serena Williams has won 12 Grand Slam tournaments.

Murray has been widely praised for not allowing such casual sexism.
