For helping rephrase a reporter’s wrongful sexist remark, fans all over have praised British professional tennis player Andy Murray. The 30-year-old Scot currently ranked world No. 1 in men’s singles, lost a five-set thriller to Sam Querrey in his yesterday quarterfinal tie and speaking at a post-match press conference, Murray was asked about the significance of his opponent being the ‘first American player’ to reach a Wimbledon semi-final since 2009. But before answering the question, he quickly corrected saying ‘male player’ because American Serena Williams has actually won Wimbledon five times since 2009, with one of the finals against her sister Venus. The stars quick reaction was appreciated by many including his mother Judy and First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon.
That's my boy. ❤️ https://t.co/ldZUQ2wbZj

Is Andy Murray the most doggedly feminist *male* player in tennis? This seems to happen every year, but he's always ready to call shit out. https://t.co/fQqKMYC4W4
