Re: Do the women deserve equal prize money?

I enjoyed the womens final just as much as the mens.

I'm a little pissed off that Nadal hasn't closed out this match though.

Serena "Making Threats" Williams

I don't give a crap that they get equal prize money, but this final is awesome.
Federer all the way!!

Re: Do the women deserve equal prize money?

I think the women should be forced to play best of five in all GS finals and even at the tour champs final...

Re: Do the women deserve equal prize money?

How about 05' then?

Did the men deserve it after
the amazing Ladies' Final?

Re: Do the women deserve equal prize money?

Yeh this is tennis at its best, but you cant judge the whole of mens tennis on their two top players.

I should add that I think 5 sets is fairer. Though I am delighted that Vee won, there is no reason that there couldnt have been a similair story yesterday, perhaps with equal excitement.

I'd venture to guess that the same type of men that
decided for the women that they could not run a
marathon until the 1980's were the same type that
likely decided women couldn't play best 0f 5. Ya' think?

Re: Do the women deserve equal prize money?

Nadal is giving me a heart attack here, he has missed every opportunity to close this out... but looking at this final it's tough to fight for the women. LOL
