Navratilova's 2 cents on the equal pay
When Martina was on the Jonathan Ross show, they asked her about the equal pay dispute. Obviously Martina said the pay should be equal, but then she talked about some of the arguments against equal play and said 'they argue that men play best of 5, women best of 3 but the women are WILLING to play best of 5 but the powers that be wont let us'!!
Hello!! This is news to me!!
It was the players who lead the decision to change the WTA Championships FInal to be reduced from best of 5 to best of 3, at the time I recall players arguing the 5 set match was too taxing on them at the end of a long year..
I dont know what Martina was on about there.. Does anyone else know anything about the ladies being willing to play best of 5?
