Andy Murray Interrupts Reporter’s Sexist Question To Stop Casual Sexism, And His Interview Goes Viral | Bored Panda
British tennis player Andy Murray has just been eliminated from Wimbledon by American Sam Querrey, but people are talking more about his post-game interview rather than the loss itself.
In the press conference, a reporter can be heard asking off-camera: “Andy, Sam is the first U.S. player to reach a major semi-final since 2009. How would you describe the—?”
When Murray casually interferes: “Male player.”
Pause. “I beg your pardon?” the reporter asks.
“Male player, right?” Murray repeats.
You see, Serena Williams has won 12 Grand Slam tournaments since 2009. TWELVE.
