Andy Murray had the best response to a reporter's 'casual sexism'

    By: Clair Fuller on Jul 16, 2017

    Brad Esposito writes, "British tennis player and world number one Andy Murray bowed out of Wimbledon, the tournament he won last year, in the wuarter finals on Wednesday. However, it's Murray's statements in the post-match press conference that are now attracting the most attention. The 30-year-old had no time for a journalist after they referred to Murray's opponent, Querrey, as 'the first US Player' to reach a major semi-final since 2009.

    'Sam is the first US player to reach a major semi-final since 2009, how would you...', asked a reporter, before Murray interrupted.

    'Male player,' said the world number one, to awkward laughter from the reporter asking the question.

    'Ah yes...Male player. That's for sure.'"
