Keep repeating it, it won't make it true anyway.
Stop fooling yourself thinking the fact you possess a dick makes you worthy of our time and try become someone decent instead.
Bye.

Just my personal preference, but I would rather watch the male players because they are just more interesting to me. I generally don't watch matches with players I don't like or who don't hold my interest.

Maybe not. But it would prevent certain players from breaking into top 10. Why should a grand slam event for women should be easier than masters? (5 matches in 7 days vs 7 matches in 14 days?). It also prevents players who are insanely fit and have lots of stamina from utilizing it to the fullest, which should be a valid tennis strategy. I am tired of seeing out of shape players huffing and puffing after 1 hour under the sun. Make women's matches best of 5, is the only option. The top 10 would be looking VERY different in that case.

We'd just see a bunch of pushers make the Top 10 in that case though.

Great video done recently by Manwomanmyth, completely exposing the hypocrisy of ''equal pay'' :

He's also got a lot of other videos absolutely annihilating feminism, if you're interested

Re: Equal prize money debate (Rob Koenig and Tipsarevic agree with Gilles Simon)

The problem is that the WTA is a complete mess. No big rivalries. Anybody can beat anyone on any given day. I miss the good old time when we had Navratilova/Evert or Seles/Graf. I used to follow the WTA at that time ... even with Henin and Williams sisters there was something missing ... and now there is nothing. I just couldn't be bothered. No big champions. Serena plays when she feels like it. You have all of these Russians/Eastern European girls who have zero charisma ... yeah, they can scream very well ... no wonder that the women's final at the AO wasn't sold out.

Nobody really cares. How many slamless #1s did we have in last couple of years (Safina, JJ, Wozniacki)? Woz even managed to be ranked #1 two years in a raw, without being able to win a major. Just pathetic. I do agree with some posters here that maybe women should play best of 5 in semis and finals in majors.

What a waste of time. Since when are tennis players paid per hour on court?

And you completely missed the point of the video.

Location: Sweden. That probably explains it all.

I think the fairest solution would be to pay Pushmon and Tankseravic equal to the women, and play the other ATP players more.

Everybody is happy.

Just take half out of womens prize money and distribute it to the lower levels of mens tennis.

Actual cannibal

Pretty much sexist shite with a fixation on one particular argument.
Not all of his statements are wrong, though.
