Andy Murray, the British professional, spoke about the equality and the ‘human rights’ of all genders in tennis.
The former World No. 1 is always known for his ethics on and off the courts. Further, the other players always respect the Briton because of his personality. In 2019, when he declared to retire from the sport, not only male but also female players presented their heartfelt tribute to the Briton.
Further, the Brit has raised his voice against injustice and gender equality in the sport multiple time. He felt about the inequality and injustice in tennis when he had a female coach. Therefore, Murray said, “When I started working with a female coach [Amélie Mauresmo], that was when I realized there was a problem and I was like, “Wow”, you know she’s been number one in the world? You cannot be more successful than that. I felt she was being unfairly judged in the media and purely because she was a woman.”
Sir Murray also spoke against fellow male players like Alexander Zverev and Nikoloz Basilashvili, who were accused of domestic violence against their partners. Further, the 33-year-old also criticized the ATP authorities for taking a long time to say on the issue. After this issue, Andy expressed his views, “I just want everyone, so men and women, to be treated the same. I don’t think that’s radical, I just think it should be a human right.”
At present, Andy Murray is enjoying time with his family and further, working on his form to get back into the top two. As the former World No.1 currently ranks at 123, his performance deteriorated since he got the hip surgery.
