Re: Ebay AO ticket reselling is clear: Womens tennis sux!
Very interesting reading the australian ebay for AO tickets. There are many many tickets for sale for the womens final most BELOW cost!! I guess people's idea of Serena delivering a quickie result is not entertainment to them, especially compared to the marathons mens final last year.
In contrast the mens final is selling for many times over its original cost. Its roughly $1200 plus for mens final tickets and below $300 for women. Eventually market forces will have to say men should be paid more, its pure economics. The public has spoken, pure and simple.
Not really people are paying loads for the biggest names in males tennis. They are not willing to pay for a Ferrer Almagro final (tickets would be $2 on ebay if that were to occur). Biggest males make enough in sponsorship, to reflect their higher popularity. Hence men shoudlnt be paid more at slams.
