Justin Gimelstob, a sports commentator on the Tennis Channel, has been reprimanded for making derogatory, sexually charged remarks about Anna Kournikova. In retribution, Gimelstob will make a donation to the Women’s Sports Foundation.
Tennis Channel apologized on behalf of Gimelstob. The culprit had to apologize too. He said he was sorry for the comments on Kournikova and other female players. He still has his job at Tennis Channel.
Gimelstob had officially retired from the professional tennis circuit. He might be playing against Kournikova at the World Team Tennis in July. Kournikova would play for the St. Louis Aces while Gimelstob’s team is Washington (DC) Kastles.
