Tennis fans are calling for sports commentator Doug Adler to be sacked for a comment made during Venus William’s second-round match at the Australian Open.
Viewers believe the 59-year-old former tennis pro, who is currently employed by U.S. television station ESPN, compared the world number 17’s on-court pressure to that of an ape.
“She misses a first serve and Venus is all over her,” Adler said. “You see Venus move in and put the gorilla effect on. Charging.”
