Raymond Moore is the CEO of Indian Wells Tennis Garden, which is currently hosting the BNP Paribas Open. While talking to reporters today ahead of today’s men’s final between Novak Djokovic and Milos Raonic, he called the WTA a bunch of lucky coattail-ridin’ dummies who have the men to thank for their continued existence.
Ray, buddo, while the ATP is growing faster than the WTA is terms of revenue, the WTA is still growing! What else does he think about women’s tennis?
Damnit. This is the worst tennis opinion someone has held since Darren Rovell said he was down with market-sanctioned racism.
Update (5:00 p.m.): Serena Williams has responded.
