Melbourne, Jan 16: Commenting about Venus Williams" bottom has landed a tennis commentator in trouble.
Roger Rasheed, a former coach of Lleyton Hewitt, commented on Williams' bottom during a slow motion replay of her match against China's Yan Zi at the Australian Open. "Take a look at this now. Make or think as you will, ladies, but for me, that's a pretty good sight,'' The Daily Telegraph quoted him, as telling co-commentators Tracy Austin and Nicole Bradtke.
And while the two women found it funny, viewers certainly didn"t and broadcaster Channel Seven was inundated with calls.
Though admitting that there had been a number of calls, the
broadcaster maintained that there would be no action taken against
Rasheed for his comments.
