Talk of disparity in prize money! Mens winner makes 300000 while womens winner makes 37000..Talk of disparity of prize money..The mens field is pretty crappy as well!

The mens event is the equavilent of a "Premier" event on the ATP tour giving 500 rankings points whereas the womens event is a small International event giving like half the ranking points

Re: Acapulco payoff for mens winner 300000 While whole womens tournament is under 220

Womens tennis prizemoney went way up this year.
But the small tournaments still pay very little.
IW almost doubled their women's prizemoney

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

That's about right. If someone cared to do the math, i'm sure the top ten women had a higher hourly rate than the men.

The men sell more tickets, play at a much higher level, and put in much more work during their matches.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Yes, but in some instances, like the US open for example (which I believe has one of if not the largest viewing audience), the womens tv ratings score more viewers then the men. Which in reality sees more viewers seeing more advertisement. It goes beyond the simple number crunching of who's physically sitting in seats at a match or who's on the court for longer. It's who can earn more bucks for the tournament in the larger scheme of things.

In a business sense, woman are more marketable then men. The simple philosophy of "sex selling" will always prevail. Even the ATP acknowledge this, as they have used ball-woman (models) on several occasions. To further this, we have house hold names like the Williams sisters, Kournikova and Sharapova.

For a small tournament, tennis itself is used to assist their sponsors to advertise their products, and what better way to do it then using some attractive, athletic and successful woman to do it. Few men on the tour could sell a product effectively the same way a dozen names on the WTA could.

Well but the disparity is outrageous! In Sydney the payoff difference betweenn the winners was just 20000$ there was an article some days ago about women in 70s struggling to survive! They have same expenditures as men right? Is there any men tournament which gives as low payoff as Acapulco and still be tour event? And the field for this "premier" event for men sucks balls

Huge waste of money as 5oo Tournament. I don´t see any ATP superstar playing there

What we have ? Nalbi , Moya , Ferrero , maybe Mugfils and that is all

The marketplace determines the prize money. I guarantee you that the women in Mexico are quite happy to play for their prize money vs. not having a tournament at all to play. If not, they would not be there.

Also, Kremlin Cup: women make WAY more.

Some tournaments are higher levels for one gender over the other. No one cares. Stupid thread. Ban, please.

Good point. The top women do not feel the difference but it is the lower ranked women for whom it becomes unfair, they work as hard, travel as far, have the same expenses etc
