To put it in context, he said it because Eugenie had tweeted that she liked Serena Williams' outfit the day before. Serena was also asked to give us a twirl and people are pretty pissed. Why are we asking the girls to twirl and not strictly talking about the tennis?!
When Serena was asked about her twirl, she had the perfect response:
"A commentator asked me to twirl. I wouldn't ask Rafa [Nadal] or Roger [Federer] to twirl. Whether it's sexist or not, I don't know. I can't answer that...I didn't really want to twirl because I was just like, you know, I don't need all the extra attention. But, yeah, it was fine."
"I don't think and look that deep into it. Life is far too short to focus on that. We have so many other problems we want to deal with that we should focus on. Whether I twirl or not, it's not the end of the world. It's about being positive and just moving forward."
As for Eugenie, she's taking it in stride, too, tweeting:
Eugenie Bouchard deserves better than sexist 'twirl' request http://t.co/jY12zvPOWL- Venessa Wells (@Venessa_Wells) January 23, 2015
@CBCNews Last year the Aussie press wanted to know who she'd like to date. This year "twirl". Sexist and insulting!!- nancy sheldon (@nancysheldon1) January 21, 2015
