Australian Olympic swimming great Dawn Fraser has "unreservedly apologized" on Tuesday for her comments in which she suggested that that tennis stars Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic should set a better example or go back to where their parents came from.
Fraser, who won eight Olympic medals including four golds, was speaking in an interview on Australian television Tuesday, when asked about recent petulant behavior by Kyrgios and Tomic.
Fraser's comments provoked a social media storm and, after first defending herself against charges of bigotry, she later issued a statement apologizing to Kyrgios and Tomic.
Australia's Race Discrimination Commissioner Tim Soutphommasane told the National Press Club "contrary to what the likes of Dawn Fraser might say, most Australians do not tell migrants and their children to go back to where they came from."
Kyrgios was booed by spectators when he appeared to make little attempt to return Gasquet's serve during the third game of the second set after a dispute with the chair umpire.
Kyrgios was forced to defend himself against allegations of 'tanking' or not trying at a stage of his loss against Gasquet, and his matches through the tournament included repeated instances of arguing with umpires.
