Kim Sears responded to critics of her bad language after calling Andy Murray's rival a "flash f**k".

So she decided to go one step further and publicly own her four-letter rant at Tomas Berdych last week.

Sears, who does not give interviews, wore a Parental Advisory: Explicit Content sweater on Sunday at the Australian Open final. This comes after her dad Nigel Sears defended her, joking that she inherited her "potty mouth" from her mother.

“Disgraceful behaviour. She’s always had a potty mouth. Gets it from her mother of course," the tennis coach said. “Quite amazing how much has been made of this, but it’s pretty emotional in that box when you’re close to someone... and it was a feisty match.

“Andy’s a huge figure in the game, so naturally her association with him means there’s always going to be a certain spotlight on Kim," he added.

“I think by and large she deals with it extremely well. I think people are reading a lot into this.”
