ITF : International Tennis Federation
During the press conference on Friday :
• Nastase was heard saying: "Let's see what colour it has. Chocolate with milk?"
An ITF statement issued in response read:
"The ITF does not tolerate discriminatory and offensive language and behaviour of any kind. We are aware of alleged comments made by Romanian captain Ilie Nastase and have begun an immediate investigation so that we have the full facts of the situation before taking further and appropriate action."
• The 70-year-old then jokily asked for GB captain Anne Keothavong's (who is married and 18 weeks pregnant) room number, and also said to her "We keep being attracted."
• To Eleanor Crooks (the Press Association's female reporter who was the sole English journalist present) he said : "Why did you write that? You're stupid, you're
stupid."( Collapse )( Collapse )source
