How has Venus pushed for gender equality?

I've never heard her complain about how men have to play best of 5 sets, instead of 3, and if she really wants equality, why hasn't she called for the women actually competing against men for it?

Re: How has Venus pushed for gender equality?

You realise gender equality isn't about absolutes but about opportunity and rights, right?

Re: How has Venus pushed for gender equality?

She is fighting for PARITY, and with that comes equal pay....she never said their tennis is the same, the women will never be able to play 5 sets at majors unless u want a heap of injuries......

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

No he doesn't at all. His focus was more on creating a trollish thread.

Good joke.

Especially fitness titans like Pavlychenkova, Bartoli and Kleybanova.

Women's finals should be best of 5 IMO.

Re: How has Venus pushed for gender equality?

So far no reasonable, relevant answers. Equality means equality, not just equality where it suits. I support women earning equal pay to men in areas such as education, because they compete against men, and have the same hours. 0/2 in comparison to tennis. Women play in their own field, AND less.

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

If they're not equal, then why should they get equal pay?
