Serena Williams and Fans Nibbled Raymond Moore and Novak Djokovic over Sexist Comment about Female Tennis Players.

Indian wells CEO, Raymond Moore sexist comments about the need for female tennis players to go on their knees every night and thank God that male players; Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal were born because he believes female players rides on the glory of the men has enraged female players and fans worldwide. Moore voiced his sexist opinion while speaking at a press conference before the women's final of the BNP Paribas Open.
While saying Moore’s comment is ‘politically incorrect’ Novak Djokovic suggests men players should be paid way more than female players because they have more spectators. Although, he observed women faces challenges that men do not including battling of hormones.
Super star, Serena Williams has slammed Moore saying no ‘no woman should be down on her knees thanking anybody for that'.
Williams further called Moore’s comments a disservice to her as a woman and every other woman walking on planet earth.
However, Moore has apologised after Serena blasted him during a press conference following the tournament saying  'Those remarks are very much mistaken and very, very, very inaccurate. And there’s need for Moore to have good knowledge of historical information before making such outrageous comments.' She said laying emphasises on last year women’s final at US open, Serena said
“Last year the women's final at the US Open sold out well before the men. I'm sorry, did Roger play in that final or Rafa or any man play in that final that was sold out before the mean's final? I think not.”
Williams added: “So I just feel like in order to make a comment you have to have history and you have to have facts and you have to know things. You have to know of everything.”
“I mean, you look at someone like Billie Jean King who opened so many doors for not only women's players but women athletes in general.”
Over the years she has been told by fans that she and her sister were the reason they developed interest in law tennis and definitely not because of any male player. So she owe no one appreciation for her success.
Despite having issued a hasty apology the social media isn’t about to let Mooreoff the hook so easily as many are presently demanding for his sack or resignation.
