Tennis glamour girl Eugenie Bouchard says she has no qualms with being asked to twirl – as long as male players are asked to show off their muscles.
Bouchard made the comments following her straight sets win over Caroline Garcia at the Australian Open, and is quite obviously surprised by the stir around ‘twirl-gate’.
On Wednesday, Australian commentator Ian Cohen caused a stir after requesting Bouchard do a twirl and “show off” her dress after the Canadian’s second round win over Kiki Bertens.
“I stay out of this stuff,” Bouchard is quoted as saying by USA Today.
“I’m fine with being asked to twirl if they’re going to ask the guys to flex their muscles and stuff.”
Cohen’s request resulted in huge backlash on social media, with the likes of tennis great Billie Jean King labelling the Tennis Australia commentator “sexist” and “out of line”.
Bouchard faces the unseeded Irina-Camelia Begu in the fourth round.
