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

likely decided women couldn't play best 0f 5. Ya' think?

"forced" "mandatory" :shrug:"Forced" seems to imply that best of five sets would be punitive. To the top women, especially Venus E. S. Williams '08 Wimbledon Singles Ladies Champ and Doubles Ladies Champion, it wouldn't be a problem @ all.

I suspect the top two Americans in the draw could do it with ease. I'm absolutely sure that all the women could if they trained for it like the men do.

The quickest way to bring down the amount of prize money they are paid would be for you to not bother watching the final or womens matches in general. Pro athletes aren't really paid for their ability...they are paid for the number of butts they put on living room couches in the markets that matter. If they were paid based on ability I'd be the first one to run out and train for curling or maybe bocce.

The FAIREST way to pay would be on the basis of empty seats during the course of the tournament along with a cut of air time for commericals shown during the mens or womens matches. If ESPN is mostly showing the ladies then their cut from american air time would be greater than that for the men.

I wish this thread had been made just before the first rain delay when Rafa was practically cruising 2-0 sets up. Quality at the point was pretty poor and women's final was better by far.

After the rain delay, was the difference was Federer serve, all big serve and occassionally big forehand, Rafa was still better off the ground. Had this been some WTA player (Federer that is, I'm sure she's have been denigrated for being all serve). This pattern continues to the four set tiebreak and Rafa gives you a WTA style choke. A WTA player would be denigrated for this, but can't complain about the drama.

Oh Rafa :sobbing:

In essence I think the quality of this match hasn't been better than a WTA match, and the 'drama' which can be seen on the WTA has just been Prolonged and apparently, making things seem better than they are. If you got the top players to play best of five set finals, e.g. the Williams sisters yesterday, the finals could have been comparable.

That's not true IMO, but the women's finals of 2005, 2006 and to some extent 2008 have been high quality stuff, and a good showcase for the WTA. They might not play as long as the main, but they gave value for money entertainment.

In the 2 last mens finals, Federer has been all serve :sobbing:

IMO the only reason people might say the mens finals have been better is because the drama was prolonged over 5 sets.

partly untrue, men's game has been subsidising the WTA in revenue, interest, quality and attendance in their combined events as mostly everybody who attends the Slams can attest to... there is no doubt about which matches are most sought after. Said that, the women's game does have some few individual stars that outshine their male counterparts in terms of marketability, but those players are already handsomely rewarded by endorsements...

It's not like the women are being offered an opportunity to play 5 sets, turning it down, and then demanding equal prize money. The players don't make the rules and they don't decide how many sets they play. Of course the women should get equal prize money.

Im happy for women to receive equal prize money, but to do so they must play best of 5 sets in grand slams. Until they do this, then they shouldnt at all receive equal prize money.

Well I personally enjoyed the 05 and 06 finals more than the last 2 men's finals. And Not only because I didn't know who would win beforehand. This men's final is alright though I guess.

5 sets allows for more drama to build, but most of the time just makes it more boring and prolong the agony. This match is one of the few 5 setters that are entertaining. I think the men should play 3 sets.

Jul 6th, 2008, 07:39 PM
In principle women should play best of five sets to get equal prize money, but views, organisers don't want them too. There's a bigger issue about women and sport, it's hard to name any female sport that don't rely on sex appeal that are popular. There seems to be some kind of stigma about playing sports definitely about women training hard and heaven forbid, developing defined muscles (see Perez Hilton comments on WS final).

It's quite political why women don't play 5 sets. Alternatively, it's probably more feasable to have the men play best of 3 sets (but people would complain about Value for Money I guess). It's probably worth comparing here the quality of the best of 3 finals, such as Miami finals and so on, to decide if Mens finals are better than womens. [Thinking out loud :unsure:]

Away from the tie-breaks, has the tennis really been that exciting? I would suggest taping this 4-hour marathon and watching it again and again. We haven't had a break of serve since early in the second set. :help:

Lets keep the women best of 3 sets - thank u very much.

Apoleb
Jul 6th, 2008, 07:43 PM
The women keep on getting injured day in day out with 3 sets. Playing 5 sets would like double the amount of injuries. I can't see how this is a good idea.

Bottom point: men's tennis is at a completely different level. I don't think the WTA currently 'deserves" equal prize money, but the difference wasn't that big to start with. Everyone should let it go and move on. It's only equal in the slams anyway.

Would it be completely out of the question to think that had the women's final been 5 sets, Serena just may have found her game and helped deliver a classic. If the Mens final was best of 3 sets Federer would have bowed out in 2 miserbale sets.

Quality of the first two sets was of course way higher than womens final. Women would never produce such shots and rallies, but it's not their fault that they are not naturally as strong and athletic.

I was looking more at the number of long rallies won. Nadal most definitely had the advantage there, which is what I meant by Rafa was better off the ground. It's not all technical.

So men have a natural advantage at producing certain shots ofthe ground and causing fewer errors, but work as hard as the men and give as much. Men should be rewarded for natural advantage.

So men have a natural advantage at producing certain shots ofthe ground and causing fewer errors, but work as hard as the men and give as much. Men should be rewarded for natural advantage.
Men should be rewarded for bringing in more spectators.

Men should be rewarded for bringing in more spectators.

But their ability to draw in more spectators is helped by the stigma faced by women developing muscles and by the male natural advantage that helps them produce less errors amongst othet things.


YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSS SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!

Agreed. The US Open looks faster. It's just ridiculous. The ball was bouncing above their heads. This is supposed to be fucking grass.

Wanted Fed to win, he bailed himself out so much with the serve on breakpoints, he really hung in there for a while and showed some true grit, I wish he would have sliced his backhand more. All in all, this match is the best match in years for me.

It wasn't. And even if it was you can't be surprised given the amount of topspin in Nadal's shots.
US Open might be faster but also the courts bounce higher.
