How can Stacey tolerate such stuff? I don't get it...

They could show some of the matches on ESPN but no, ESPN chooses to show the NCAA torunament which is on every channel for ESPN, I don't understand because tennis is such a better sport and much more popular here in the states and world wide.

Re: Miami coverage: ATP: 11 Matches vs. WTA: 4 Matches! DISCUSS!!!

And this is without Roger and Rafa btw. So even with those two big male draws out, they still won't budge a little in favour of showing the women.

It is so weird that the women get paid more. I mean, I thought it was women and men are paid equally at Slams and then men get paid more everywhere else, but now men are getting paid less at non-slam events. And the thing is, the women are only getting like a few thousand more. Like, what is the significance of that extra amount?

How the hell did Stacey arrange this? Her knees must be so dead.

They really should work a deal out to livestream smaller matches on betting sites. We are living in the internet and digital age and broadcasters really have no idea about catering to their audiences.

Matches of the women who matter most to the WTA are being televised, so? On the ATP side I don't really care much about their pushing style of tennis, might watch, Djoko, Berdy, Tsonga, Delpo (Rafa + Roger not here) matches, but other players BIG NO!!

However, the point that I am interested in is the seemingly worsening international coverage of this event. The problem isn't the split between men and women's matches it's that so few of either are being shown. For an event of this calibre it's just not acceptable. The powers that be may or may not be justified in splitting coverage so lopsidedly when the pickings are slim - where are the proofs either way. Hard to prove that as many people wouldn't watch 11 women's matches if you don't actually show them. So no it doesn't bring equal pay into question at all.
I totally agree that is a major problem and an embarrassing one at that.

I won't get into a prize money debate because I've been there before. It's clear to me which is most popular and which brings most money in and it's also clear that the 'powers that be' agree with me. If it isn't clear to others, fair enough.
