Don’t mess with Kournikova: USTA drops Gimelstob ads

USTA has announced that they will no longer use former tennis pro Justin Gimelstob in their upcoming television ad campaign because of his sexist remarks on a radio program. “In the radio appearance, Gimelstob used a derogatory term to describe Anna Kournikova, a former tennis player, and made suggestive comments about current top-25 player Nicole Vaidisova.”

Kournikova plays for her sixth season of World Team Tennis, this time for the St. Louis Aces. She is scheduled to play the Newport Beach (California) Breakers on July 16, New York (Albany) Buzz on July 22 and Washington (D.C.) Kastles on July 23. (Src: Sports Illustrated)
