Tennis: Sexism row over under-21 Milan (2)

Models show A or B on thigh or back instead of using pots

(ANSA) - Milan, November 6 - A sexism row hit the group draw for the next Gen ATP event in Milan after models were used instead of pots A and B.
    Instead of picking a letter out of the pot, the world's eight best under-21 players instead chose a model walking down a catwalk, who then revealed either and A or a B on their back or thigh.
    French former world no.1 and Andy Murray's ex-coach Amelie Mauresmo called the draw a "disgrace".
    The ATP and sponsor Red Bull voiced a "deep apology" for the draw, saying their intention had been to draw on Milan's great heritage as a fashion capital but the way it had been organised, "the event was in bad taste and unacceptable".
    They apologised profusely and said there would be no repetition of "anything similar".
