The Madrid Tennis Championships is being criticized for discrimination on the basis of gender. “In what century do these people live?”

Tennis player Carlos Alcaraz received a giant multi-tiered birthday cake at the Madrid Open on May 5. Arina Sabalenka, who, like Alcaraz, is second in the world rankings, celebrated her birthday on the same day. The organization just gave her a standard-sized cake with the text Happy birthday Ariana. When pictures of the cakes started popping up on social media, Kikijit was born.

It was not the only incident during the tennis tournament in Spain that led to much criticism of the organization. The Madrid Open will not treat female players as equals to men in more areas.

No microphones after the women’s final

The final match of the women’s doubles tournament, which was won by Victoria Azarenka and Beatriz Haddad Maya, was an amazing result. Afterwards, the four contestants were banned from masked posting. When the women saw that there were no microphones prepared, they realized that they were not allowed to say anything to the audience. American Coco Gauff, who lost the final, wrote on Twitter: “I didn’t get a chance to speak today after the final.” Tunisian tennis star Anas Jabeur responded to Gough’s tweet, saying, “This is sad and unacceptable.”
