Venus and BJK never went out of their way to malign male tennis players. He has done this for years. Some of his remarks have been unfounded and crass. Perhaps there are good arguments to defend why men should be paid more, but he has never made any of them.

I agree with him. There is no valid reason that women can't also play best-of-5.

People who only care that someone makes or does worse than them are some of the most miserable people to be around. Their entire self-esteem is wrapped around 'being better than' usually in all facets of their life but usually I think deep down they fear they are not good enough to be better than anyone.

I mean truly if you are spending your deep thinking time on making yourself better so you can make more money by winning more do you have time to worry about what a woman makes on another court that has nothing to do with you? I don't think so. I feel for his parent's because clearly they raised a schmuck!

nor is there any reason men can't play best of 3?

BTW, how would he know who works harder winning a slam as he has never won one? Clearly it's him who is either not working hard enough or is just not good enough to succeed at the highest levels on his own tour.... maybe he should concentrate on that first before taking someone elses inventory, ie every WTA player.

I wonder which WTA player rejected him? I'd go with most of the top 20!

The ATP would never in a million years agree to letting them play five sets in a Slam. Some women like BJK have already said in the past they'd be willing to. For him to even bring that up is dishonest, because everyone can see the ATP would throw a fit. They already complain about women taking up courts now, they would have aneurysms if women started playing best of five.

I don't know why people even give Tipsarevic the attention he so desperately wants. The thing with guys like Tipsarevic is they're always change the criteria if they lose an argument. If women play a longer match then men, it's about ratings and ticket sales. If a women's match gets better worldwide ratings and attendance, it's about how long the match lasts and the effort put into it. They will never be convinced, because no matter what they'll move the goalposts so they can never be wrong. It's pointless arguing with him.

This is pretty much the only thing that needs to be said. You nailed it completely.

Tipsy is a clown. Nor can he take criticism, hence his childish "unfollow me" rant.

This guy seriously needs a hobby - he has a very unhealthy obsession with the fact that women get equal pay.

Re: Tipsarevic continues to be pressed about women's tennis

The crucial factor should NOT be the amount of effort, but the willingness to pay. If spectators, sponsors etc. are willing to pay more for viewing men´s matches than women´s matches, then -- obviously -- men´s rewards for playing tennis should be higher than women´s rewards (and vice versa).

There should not be any cross-subsidies between men´s and women´s professional tennis.

so if a female player goes out and seduces a billionaire to pay the women twice as much as the men then that's ok, right because someone is willing to pay more for the women. Btw, when do they ask this question? Before the tournaments or after? Also if you answer one sex or the other are you then prohibited from viewing the other sex's matches?

I want to know how could that question be asked accurately, and scientifically? Is it a fair question to ask in areas where women are not respected as equal? Hell Women in the US, still only make $.70 to every $1 a man makes for the same exact job... are we suppose to ask the establishment who keeps those numbers where they are who they want to watch? Do you not think the mere thought of such a question and prospect of pay would garner competition and have some answer the question one way or the other just to support their same sex?
