Ten­nis com­men­ta­tor sues sports net­work

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

LOS ANGELES - A ten­nis com­men­ta­tor dropped by ESPN for a re­mark about Venus Wil­liams dur­ing the Aus­tralian Open sued the sports net­work Tues­day for wrong­ful ter­mi­na­tion. For­mer ten­nis pro Doug Adler main­tains he was de­scrib­ing Wil­liams’ ag­gres­sive style last month as “guer­rilla” tac­tics and not com­par­ing her with a “go­rilla.” He apol­o­gized for his poor word choice but was let go from ESPN mid­tour­na­ment.
