World of Sport: Sexism row erupts at Wimbledon and FA

Caroline Wozniacki has accused Wimbledon of sexism after saying women players get fewer chances to feature on show courts.

The 24-year-old criticised tournament organisers after her 6-4, 6-4 loss to Spain’s Garbine Muguruza in the fourth round.

She said she’d “love” to play on a big court but women weren’t given the opportunity often enough.

It follows accusations of sexism bythe FA directed at England’s returning World Cup team.

The Football Association deleted a social media post in which it said England’s women’s team were “going back to being mothers” after returning from the World Cup.

The @England Twitter post read: “Our #Lionesses go back to being mothers, partners and daughters today, but they have taken on another title - heroes.”

The message was deleted and the same wording in an online story was changed.
