Former player Laura Robson sent a powerful message on Pride Day in Australia, some ten years ago after she did it on the court in response to some comments by Margaret Court.
Margaret Court hasn't positioned herself as an ally to the LGBTQ+ community over the years and her messages over the years around the topic speak clearly on that. Some ten years ago. Laura Robson responded to some of her comments by donning rainbow colours on the court in support of the community. Pride day was yesterday in Australia and Robson spoke on that situation:
"I wore some rainbow hairbands on Margaret Court Arena after she said pretty inexcusable things. If you're passionate about something you should stand up for what you believe in. I was happy to do it 10 years ago, I'm happy to do it today."
Pride day developed into a big deal in Australia and it's good to see widespread support from the system towards members of that community. Check out Eurosports coverage on the topic.
