I’m all for equal rights between men and women but I don’t agree with equal pay in Grand Slams. My reasoning for this is that the men play more sets. If women want equal pay, they should play best of 5 sets and not this 3 set crap. The men go bust their balls for 3-4 hours and women go out for about 2 hours and get the same pay... not right.
How does clay court or grass court effect lawn tennis game?
Very objective analysis of one aspect of 'equality' in pay rates between the sexes. From one MCP to another, they ain't equal (Thank G-d). Women are better in some ways and not as good in others. If women want equal pay for a truly equal work load and output expectations I am all for it, if they want the same pay for less work or effort or need employment standards 'adjusted' to get the jobs in the first place, then I am absolutely against it.

I do agree in some ways, but this topic does carry disagreements as well. This means the men have been degraded as they are working more for the same pay as the women now. Equal pay and equal rights just creates another inequality. Also, people say that the women have the commercial aspect, but sorry, posing for photos on the beach is separate and away from the tennis centers and courts.

I am not 4 equal pay ! Does women play 5 setters ? Does the hard work that a male player equals the hard work of a female ? Are female tennis players are as competetive against each other as men are ?
In women, the point is won in two strocks, while in men they keep at each other for 20 or more strocks to win a point. Women match ends in no sweat & in an average of 80 minutes, while men double that time.
