Andy Murray Just Shut Down a Reporter’s ‘Casual Sexism’


Andy Murray corrected a reporter’s casual sexism and it was pretty damn awesome.


A journalist began asking Murray a question, saying: “Sam is the first US player to reach a major semi-final since 2009”, only to be interrupted by the player.

“Male player,” Murray reminded him.



The journalist didn’t appear to understand what Murray meant, asking “I beg your pardon?” before Murray again reminded him that Querrey was the first male US player to reach a semi-final since 2009 – not the first player.

Although male US tennis players have struggled in recent years, female players from the country have enjoyed far more success at the Grand Slam tournaments.

Venus Williams reached the Wimbledon semi-finals on Tuesday, for example, and will play Great Britain’s Johanna Konta for a place in the final.
