Miami and the prize money democracy

It's nice to know in Miami women and men will get the same amount of money ( $ 3.450.000). I think women should get equal pay like men. They don’t get discounts on anything in this life. As far sa I know women pay the same amount of money for food, shelter, transportation. And women tennis players train just as hard as male ones. So, I can’t figure out why the tournament prize money should be different.

Yeah its nice to know, theres a lot of things in the world that say treat women equally the bible is one of them and i think its good theres no discrimination at Miami, both sets of players deserve the same amount as they work equally hard, although in some cases they could argue men do have to play 5 setters but still shouldnt be a problem.

it's about what makes the money, not who deserves it because money doesn't grow on trees.
