Recommended Posts

Tennis, particularly women's tennis is in the worst state I have ever seen it. It is clear the top players earn too much.

I'm allowed to watch what I want to and what I don't want to. As you've said yourself womens' tennis is crap.

I have an issue with women being paid the same as men for 33.33% less effort. How is that equality?

They are probably paid too much but who would knock it back if offered. Tournament hosts are the problem

You could argue it is 40% less work.

Could be as much as 60% less work.

More than happy for girls to be paid the same provided they make the same effort. The boys generate more TV revenue given their games typically last longer and broadcasters pay by the metre (hour)
