One more though about equal prize money...

You people are talking that we all want equal prize money between women and men but hey aren't women getting much more money for winning a SET since men have to play best of 5 and not best of 3. This is not equality!

Re: One more though about equal prize money...

There are like 100 other threads on this. I think the mods should just merge them all into an "equal prize money" thread so we have one place to go on this topic. Every comment on this doesn't necessarily deserve its own thread.

I get up and sing for 24 hours. Adam Levine gets up and sings for five minutes. Who get paid more? Who DESERVES to get paid more?

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Re: One more though about equal prize money...

The guy Djkovovic destroyed will get the same amount that any WTA player or any ATP player who lost in five sets. Is that "fair"?

This, 1 million times this. I'm so tired of this debate and yet it's being regurgitated in a different thread every single week with no new ideas coming up.

Re: One more though about equal prize money...

FFS, just give men some more money in the FOUR tournaments a year that they have to play Bo5. EVERY SINGLE OTHER FUCKING TOURNAMENT, MEN PLAY Bo3. Why do people make SUCH a big deal out of this.

I agree. Stakhovsky should have received Ferrari for his first round's loss.

Players are paid for winning a match. And this is what we look at.

You can go and complain to ITF why men are not playing best of 3 in Grand Slams.

Djoker won 6-1 6-0 6-1 in his first round in 73 minutes
S Stephens won her match 6-3 6-4 in 95 minutes (2 sets longer than mens 3)
Errani won her match 6-3, 6-7, 6-1 in 116 minutes
O Puchkova won her match 7-6 6-7 6-3 in 173 minutes

Burdette cant take her 60k prize money because she is some college player. How is that fair?
