I agree with what Cash is saying. But the best solution for everybody would be to cut the men's matches to best of 3 and give equal money.
Look about working hard, he sites Nadal at the Italian Open;
but what about JHH playing 9 sets of tennis in 2 days at
the German Open. Didn't Federer breeze thru his matches

*We're in the modern world now. Like cricket, tennis was
a rich person's sport. The crowd who came to matches
were so well off that they didn't have jobs. They could sit
and eat strawberries, drink for 5 hours. Now we can barely
sit still waiting on the internet for 2 minutes. Nobody has
