SERENA WILLIAMS SLAMS INEQUALITY AND DISCRIMINATION IN OPEN LETTER

The subject of equal pay in tennis was very much in the headlines early in 2016 thanks to the much criticized comments of former pro Ray Moore.

Now, as the year concludes, Serena Williams has slammed inequality and taken issue with the fact that she is often described as one of the best female athletes — instead of simply one of the best athletes around.

The record 22-time grand slam singles champion made her declarations in an open letter published in Porter magazine’s “Incredible Women of 2016” issue.

Earlier this year, Moore — the tournament director of tennis’ most prestigious event outside the majors, the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California — said women’s players should get “down every night” on their knees and thank Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal for carrying the sport.

Williams was one of those who criticized Moore, with the 70-year-old resigning days later.
