Roger Federer Did Something Surprising
We all know Roger Federer is one of the most popular tennis stars. The match had record audience in a tennis match in West Australian history. The situation was intense but then Roger Federer and his opponent Jack Sock pulled off a stunt together and the stunt became the matter of the moment.
The Females Were Pissed Off And They Left Their Position
Federer and Sock kept on playing together and they made their partners unused. Watching the weird stuff, Federer’s partner, Bencic was totally pissed and she sat on the court. However, Vandeweghe walks off the court. Federer and Sock enjoyed their little game before Sock came to Federer to congratulate him.
The Video Clip Of The Match
The video clip of the match ran wild over social media. Where many people found it funny, others found it unpleasing. They hate how the females were ignored and the males tried to flash their charisma but actually flashed their gender biased mindset.
It Is Just A Mid Match Fun, Not Toxic Masculinity
If you watched the video, you'd understand.
You have a Tag team; male and female.
However, the males decided (maybe not deliberately) exclude the females from play, only hitting the ball to each other while the females watched. They got fed up and walked off the court

Many called it toxic masculinity and said that they are disappointed with this kind of behavior from one of the greatest male tennis star. However, it is nothing more than a mid-match fun.
Clearly, this Roger Federer did this for the sake of fun but his action did not seem to please many. The act triggered the feminists. Moreover, someone called it gender-biasing which seems quite exaggerated. What do you say? Is it funny or is it a case of sexism or misogyny? Share your thoughts in the comments.
