Re: CONFIRMED:Tadde Maria & her husband to launch legal proceedings against ITF & RG

I'm hoping we'll finally get some sense concerning the rules. Those 20/25 seconds between points have been misused by certain players for ages, especially in the men's game. Games and matches are...

Re: Karatancheva on Siegemund: "I wanted to beat the s*it out of her"

Wait a second, no one would say "this behavior is not what this sport is about" and then say they want to beat the shit out of someone? It must be fake? Or at least I hope so.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 97

Magda Linette really deserves the first round prize money at RG. Equal pay etc.

Sweet Jeesus, this is just horrible. Cornet is one of the biggest jokes in professional tennis.

Re: One way fix equality problem at slams

Are people seriously talking about women playing BO5? Who would want to watch that? Seriously? Maybe one or two hardcore masochists who enjoy seeing Wozniacki, Cornet, Niculescu playing matches that...

Yes, but the ATP still has more depth when it comes to names that attract people. Big WTA tournaments have abysmal crowds.

Re: ATP twitter feud Andy Murray + other players vs Stakhovsky over equal pay for WT

Who are the other players actually feuding here? I just see Lajovic making a funny joke.

Re: Andy Murray: "的 think there should be equal pay, 100%, at all combined events."

I also like Lajovic's view. Adding some humor in there.

Pennetta and Vinci were former top-10 players. Monfils-Dmitrov or something similar would also take a hit but nothing that bad.

My point is that the ATP players ranked 5-10 are much more popular...

Oh yes, the tickets they were then trying to sell very cheaply after Serena failed to make the finals. And of course the TV ratings went also down the toilet.

Re: Andy Murray: "的 think there should be equal pay, 100%, at all combined events."

What the hell does that mean? "Tickets for Serena's matches". Like they sell tickets before the tournament that say: "Federer 2nd rd match", "Serena 3rd rd match". They sell tickets for the Arthur...

Women want to be strong and they want to stand on their own two feet. Yet they have no problem taking the money from the guys. Go figure.

Re: Raymond Moore on WTA - they ride on coattails of men

I wonder what the LPGA pros are thinking? "Just enjoy your prize money and stop whining. You've got it good".

Re: Djokovic: Men should have more prize money

It's just baffling to me that people are still talking about women playing best-of-five.

Really, would any sane person want to watch Wozniacki-Cornet playing five sets? Those ratings would be the...

Re: Andy Murray: "的 think there should be equal pay, 100%, at all combined events."

"Serena is playing on centre court and you have a men's match with Stakhovsky playing, people are coming to watch Serena"? Yes, sounds like The WTA tour is beating some stiff competition for ratings....
