Zach Lowe: WNBA releases statement on Raymond Moore’s comments at Indian Wells: NEW YORK, March 21, 2016 — The following statement is from WNBA President Lisa Borders on behalf of the WNBA: “The WNBA condemns the disparaging remarks made by Indian Wells CEO Raymond Moore regarding the women of the WTA. Female athletes are no different than their male counterparts. They inspire millions of fans and work hard to be the best in their sports by competing at the highest levels, breaking records and winning championships. At a time when the physical and emotional benefits of athletic participation have never been more clear, we need to empower female athletes and promote opportunities for girls and women to play sports, rather than promote outdated, offensive and uninformed opinions.”
