Andy Murray has urged Wimbledon to begin play on Centre Court earlier as he became involved in a sexism row over the tournament scheduling.
Critics have complained that the All England Club’s show courts – Centre and Court One – are routinely hosting two men’s games and only one women’s match per day.
…Murray and Venus Williams led the calls for the tournament to begin holding four matches a day on the courts.
….Murray was one of a number of players who said the club needed to find a way to split the men’s and women’s matches fairly across the courts.
…”I think ideally you would have two men’s and two women’s on Centre, potentially starting the matches a bit earlier would allow for that,” he said.
