this past weekend, former tennis pro and commentator John McEnroe both confused — and angered — some fans as he commentated on the two final matches, including making remarks that some deemed sexist.

When fellow commentator Mary Carillo mentioned that five-time grand slam winner Iga Swiatek turned down a brand partnership from Lancome because she doesn’t wear a lot of makeup, McEnroe’s response raised eyebrows.After comparing the player to tennis great Rafael Nadal, McEnroe wondered: “You think if they offer her enough, Lancome, maybe she would consider throwing on a little makeup for the right price?”
