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.

Why do you care about those enormous amount of paychecks ?

Don't waste your energy fighting for rich people and fight for your own salary.

Women earn a lot less than men in everyday life, this is pure injustice.

Re: Ebay AO ticket reselling is clear: Womens tennis sux!



I've been selling on ebay for a decade and have made over 80K selling part time. Their is really no rhyme or reason as to what price concert and/or sporting tickets will sell for. It really depends on the event, athlete, or team. In tennis their is so much uncertainty as to who will play and when. You can call the tournaments directly and they won't confirm or deny if the top players will play or not.

What I do find is WTA fans are smarter when it comes to purchasing tickets. Most of them wait until it's confirmed their favorite player will be there or even purchase tickets on the day before the match after they know their favorite player has gotten to the next round.

Last year I sold an extra pair of tickets of Serena vs. Sharapova qtr. I got from one of my co-workers. The tickets were box seats and they sold the day before the match for $600 and BOTW is a small event. It was packed out and people were really trying to get in that match. So I think WTA fans are willing to wait instead of assuming the final will be between two players they want to see.

Re: Ebay AO ticket reselling is clear: Womens tennis sux!

It is obvious Men's tennis carries women's when it comes to slams and now to a whole load of tour events too. It isn't surprising that the male players want a lions share of the money as they bring in the lions share of the revenue.

Of course butt hurt fans of Serena and Sharapova will come into this thread and say more people would rather watch them than gasquet. But really if you aren't smart enough to realise that all the way down the ranks the men at comparative ranking to women always out rate and pull their counter-parts then don't comment on issues you don't understand.

Re: Ebay AO ticket reselling is clear: Womens tennis sux!

I know I would much rather tickets to the Australian Open Womens Semi Finals than the final.

You get to see both Semi Final matches, and it starts a bit later, at like 1:00 PM.

Seriously, most fans just don't care. You don't see a hobo caring about what Beyoncé earns. Indecent & pointless.

Re: Ebay AO ticket reselling is clear: Womens tennis sux!

It's a harsh reality. The marketplace doesn't lie. Look at the women's final last year and then look at the men's. There comes a time, as a women's tennis stan that you have to let go of delusion. There's a reason why I've always avoided those equal pay threads even though I've had desperate attempts to try and defend in the past.

It is what it is.

This, i do the same with concerts here, wait untill the last minute to buy and decide if i'm going or not. Sometimes i get cheaper tickets, sometimes i pay more.

Men/women , the question is not about sex , it's more about Fed/Nole/Andy and Rena/Masha . Currently 4 top players in men's tour are absolute peak of any possible top 4 in near future, we should understand that as soon as in 5 years we might again see Gaston Gaudios as Slam winners and Hewitts being YE #1... We are just very quick forgetting that the likes of Martin Verkerk,Mariano Puerta, Magnus Norman,MaliVai Washington were Runner-Ups for a GS title not long ago

The absence of Rafa has already affected popularity of men's tennis.... At USO women's part was much more entertaining , as a result women's final drove bigger TV audience and thus more money. Now just imagine Federer retired and how immediately will it affect ticket sales

Re: Ebay AO ticket reselling is clear: Womens tennis sux!



To the "not really a fan but it's a big event" and even many casual fans, tennis means primarily men's tennis. In the world of pro sports women's tennis is notable for being as successful as it. Everyone here knows those things.

Oh and BTW for most of us, the measure of whether something "sux" sure ain't the interest level of the average dufus.
