Novak Djokovic Shares Sexist Views On Female Tennis Players

3/26/2016 8:37pm EDT
Novak Djokovic
Novak Djokovic says there are reasons to justify why male tennis players make more than female tennis players.

Djokovic spoke to the media after his win over Milos Raonic in the BNP Paribas final. He says that men should continue to make more money “because the stats are showing that we have much more spectators on the men’s tennis matches.”

Some stats for Novak Djokovic: More people search Google for Serena than they do for him & Federer combined.

Serena Williams Blasts Tournament Director For Sexist Comments About Women's Tennis

3/20/2016 9:48pm EDT
Serena Williams Responds To Tournament Director's Sexist Comment
Serena Williams didn't like being demeaned by the director of the tournament she played in this weekend.

Raymond Moore, the director of the BNP Paribas Open tournament at Indian Wells, made some very sexist comments during a Q&A on Sunday.

Moore took a question about the Women's Tennis Association and he completely degraded women's tennis, completely failing to recognize everything from the commercial value to sport's notable athletes:

"In my next life when I come back I want to be someone in the WTA," Moore said, "because they ride on the coattails of the men. They don't make any de...

'Superhero' Serena Williams Chases Down Man Who Stole Her Phone
Serena Williams claims she chased down the thief who stole her iPhone.

Williams was dining at a Chinese restaurant when the incident took place. She says, "This guy is standing next to me and something (I have now dubbed it my SUPERHERO sense) told me to watch him."

The sense was correct. The man did indeed take her phone. That's when Williams put her years of athletic training to use. "I jumped up, weaved my way in and out of the cozy restaurant (leaping over a chair or two) and chased him down."

"He began to run but I was too fast. (Those sprints came in handy) I was upon him in a fla...

10/9/2015 9:14am EDT
Verdict From Drake And Serena About Engagement, Marriage Rumors:
Unless you've been too busy waiting for the world to end, the news that Drake proposed to Serena Williams probably slipped by you. Yea, it's like that; Drizzy supposedly popped the question to the world's No.1 women's singles tennis player, and she said "yes!" Both were tight-lipped about the latest rumors, and Twitter went bonkers over this Drake and Serena engagement thing. But according to the rapper's camp, it didn't go down like that.

We know Drake started from the bottom, now he's here, but what we didn't know (more on that later) is if the engagement buzz is 100. However, according ...

Athlete Eye Candy - The Sexiest Legs, Butts & Abs In Sports
Not suprisingly, professional athletes have some of the best bodies in the world. They train daily to make sure their legs, arms, and abs (and other parts) are in peak physical condition. They don't just work out to look good - they work out to win.

Russian beauty Anna Kournikova has spent the last few years playing exhibition matches after retiring from competition at age 21 due to back and spinal injuries. Despite her lack of professional status, she is still one of the hottest athletes in the world.

She is known just as much for tennis as she is for her relationship with singer Enrique...
