Of course, had anyone dared to venture an observation about Murray’s legs, nose, hair, weight, anything – they’d have roundly and rightly been shot down.Yet, we continue to talk about female tennis players in terms of their appearance. Absolutely, yes.” Now, a week before Wimbledon 2016, Bartoli is back in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.

I’m thinking specifically – though not solely – of Marion Bartoli, the French player who lifted the Wimbledon ladies single’s title in 2013. Presumably, these aren’t the same ‘fans’ who, back in 2013, posted the following on Twitter during and after Bartoli’s Wimbledon victory: have no idea whether Bartoli read any of these comments at the time, or since.

That Bartoli has to defend her body at all exposes an imbalance in how we view male and female tennis players.
