You missed the point. It doesn't take nearly as long for a routine 3 set match to finish than it does a routine 5 set match.

Venus Williams and Mirza at the AO that shit should have been moved to another court.

As for the womens football argument that is rubbish as well. Are they good and talented at what they do, yes they are and they deserve respect for making it in their chosen field. They aren't as good as the men pure and simple, the crowds, advertising and broadcasting revenue reflect this, therefore they don't earn as much and this is not sexism.

Bigger, faster, stronger and tennis being played at a higher overall level on the ATP, it's not that hard to understand.

exactly, i'm not saying men are better than women, that is a feeble arguement used by wta lovers. i'm saying wta is played at an extremely low-level and they should not gain the same credit as the men!!!

Where is the evidence of this?

It's bigger, faster and stronger because, men are bigger, faster, stronger. Doesn't necessarily translate into better, or more importantly, more entertaining.

The whole idea of the men getting paid more is so ridiculous to me. I still can't believe it took so long for the women to get paid equally.

Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

While hate is too strong of a word, I feel rather embarrassment by my co-gender tennis players game. They can't serve, can't hold after a break, most matches are in the "who chokes the least wins" category and the ones that have some game are mentally midgets. No farther than last week in Rome the match between Serena and Jankovic(two Number 1s, btw ) was a error fest that could have fit very well as a Tales from teh Crypt episode so horrific it was
WTA wasn't like that always. I don't know what happened, but these days it seems more important the on-court outfit and the Tiffany earrings than the actual game

Which tour generates more money the ATP that is obvious, if this was not the case then the WTA events would have higher rights for TV deals, their tournaments would have a greater prizemoney pool than the men, revenue from ticketing and advertising would be greater therefore generating to a larger income base than the ATP.

If you can't see that, then you are practicing selective eyesight.

So are you a communist? They absolutely have no economic reason to stand on to demand equal prizemoney. Women golfers, basketball, volleyballers and footballers don't get it and don't deserve to have it either, it's not because they are shit at what they do.

Can't judge entertainment value, but if that was the case and the women actually generated more cash than the guys then they would deserve more than the men.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

The WWE Divas are more entertaining than WTA tennis players.

Re: Why do you hate the WTA?

If women want the same money, they should have to play against the men. Laughable, I know, but so is the concept of equal money for non-equal work.
