Wimbledon experts Boris Becker and John Inverdale criticize the player’s fiancé as “beautiful”
The BBC tennis team Boris Becker and John Inverdale faced a series of criticisms after calling a player’s fiancee “very beautiful.”
When the camera focused on her, 63-year-old Inverdale said: “Her name is Anett Böszörményi.
“If you are a tennis player, it is always good to have a partner named Anett.”
The 53-year-old Becker interjected: “They do say they have the most beautiful woman in Hungary. I don’t know, but she is really beautiful.”
Inverdale added: “I want to thank the 1978 Christmas cookies for giving me a joke.”
Stephanie Hilborne of Women in Sport says her charity has spent decades trying to end materialization.
She added: “When two men are comfortable talking about women in this way, let alone on live TV, it shows that there is more to be done.
“Should we not encourage girls to participate in sports instead of talking about what women look like?”
In 2013, Inverdale was named a French tennis star Marianne Bartoli It is “never be a bystander”.
