The twirl controversy has taken on a life of its own. It started when an Australian Open presented asked Genie Bouchard to do a “twirl” during a post-match on court interview.
Some thought the request would sexist – would anyone ever ask Novak Djokovic to do that? Many, like me, don’t care.
But Genie found a cartoon that summed it up.

“Personally I’m not offended,” Bouchard said. “I think it was an in-the-moment thing and it was funny. But, yeah, I mean, it’s just funny how it’s taken a life of its own. I’m just going to try to focus on my tennis.”
Maria Sharapova also wanted no part of the story, saying today, “I really have no interest in that, honestly. I’m sure you guys have covered every part of it. You know, I stay away from that.”
