When tennis broadcaster Annabel Croft referred to reigning French Open champion Serena Williams as 'huge', she could have been talking about a number of positive things. Unfortuantly, instead of discussing Serena's talent or legacy, Croft was making bitchy remarks about Serena's bottom.
Croft made disparaging remarks about Serena's figure during a corporate lunch. One of the LTA people invited to the lunch was offended by Croft's remarks, and spilt all to the media.
'Annabel made many personal asides about Serena, saying that she was huge. She said all Serena's dresses were very carefully designed to hide her bulk. She then moved on to concentrate on what she termed as Serena's huge backside. She said she was in the ladies' changing room and wondering who was going to wear what looked like a wedding dress. She then saw Serena getting into this dress and that the train had been carefully designed to wrap around Serena's huge backside. It was quite offensive.'
