Laura Robson: Some Tennis Rivals Are 'Sluts'

Tennis sensation Laura Robson has ruffled a few feathers after calling some competing players "sluts" in the latest issue of British Vogue. According to the Courier Mail, the 16-year-old said some rivals "go with every guy and make such a bad name for themselves."

Robson, who won the Wimbledon Junior Girls Championship when she was just 14 years old, says she is the "gossip queen" of the girl's circuit.

After portions of her interview were leaked, Robson tweeted that "some quotes were taken out of context." Former British tennis player Tim Henman has defended the 16-year-old, telling the Guardian that she "probably said something that she didn't mean to say and she'll learn from it."

Really enjoyed the photoshoot and looking forward to seeing the full piece, shame some quotes were taken out of context today though :(less than a minute ago via UberTwitter
