THE LOW DOWN: WTA Tour CEO Larry Scott responds to Richard Williams' remarks

WTA Tour CEO Larry Scott has responded to the comments made by Richard Williams about racism on the tour and reiterated the zero-tolerance policy for any incidents involving racism.

According to Scott,
The Tour has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to racism, and I have previously let Mr. Williams know that he should let me know if he ever had evidence of racist comments or acts in women's professional tennis. Champions like Chris Evert and Tracy Austin have done so much to help build women's tennis to where it is today, and it is regrettable that anyone would criticize them in this manner.
I think it's vital for Scott to take a proactive approach to these issues, as he did with Martina Hingis' doping charges + ban and criminal background checks for players' entourage.
