the women's Tennis Association is to study the transcript of an interview given by Laura Robson after Britain's former Wimbledon junior champion reportedly said some of her fellow professional players were "sluts".
In an interview with Vogue magazine, 16-year-old Robson was reported to have said: "Some of the tennis girls, they're sluts. They go with every guy and make such a bad name for themselves – and you don't want to be known for stuff like that. You want to be more discreet."
Andrew Walker, senior vice-president of the WTA tour, said yesterday: "We are aware of Laura Robson's reported comments to Vogue UK along with her statement that the comments were taken out of context. We understand that an actual transcript of her remarks exists and we will review it carefully as soon as we receive it. Until then, we have nothing further to add."
