Murray's deadpan correction was beautiful:
Venus and Serena [Williams] have won four each.
He actually had to stifle a little laugh after calling out Inverdale's mistake.
The faux pas wasn't ignored, especially since Inverdale has been in hot water over sexist commentary in the past:
Murray was compelled to declare himself a feminist last year after criticism of his coach, Amelie Mauresmo, confronted him with the “staggering” prejudice against women in sport.
