Wozniacki Sparks Sexism Row

Danish tennis player, Caroline Wozniacki, has accused Wimbledon of sexism after saying that women get fewer chances to feature on show courts. The 24-year-old criticised tournament organisers after her 6-4, 6-4 loss to Spain’s Garbine Muguruza in the fourth round. She said she’d “love” to play on a big court but women weren’t given the opportunity often enough.

“You only get one women’s match on Court One and Centre Court,” she said. “Most of last week it was only one women’s match on Court Two as well. It’s definitely different, that’s all I can say.

“I think a lot of us women feel like we deserve to play on the big courts in front of a big crowd as well.” A spokesman for the All England Club declined to comment. Reporters were told during Wozniacki’s press conference to “stick to tennis questions” after she was asked about an ankle injury suffered by her golf champion ex-fiance Rory McIlroy
