Actually not, but you missed the point. Lets see all these whiners saying Stakhovsky is number 96 in the world, is a scrub and shouldn't be saying anything at all. Jerriy explained it clearly, he is a council member and since he is lower ranked he can be bagged for these views which most of the male players agree with. The lower ranked males are better than their equivalents on the WTA. Men's sport is a greater draw globally or don't you get that.
Second of all if you don't understand what union politics are about. He is there to represent his members.
Women porn stars get more than males, gay males get more than straight ones. Why is this? That's because that's how that market works. In tennis the WTA gets subsidised with the joint events big time.
Oh god, your a mod and you bring Porn here, WOW. What a shame, your an embarrassment. You can make other comparisons with other sports but porn really. It's not that he shouldn't say anything at all, but his whining of WTA is taking away money from them is ridiculous. Which means that non-joint event gives more prize money than joint events why is that Shanghai a single ATP event gives out less prize money than Madrid a joint event. It's a proof that being separate or joint doesn't affect anything. Because even if they are separate events ala Toronto/Montreal which are actually separate events that doesn't affect the prize money. The more important causes are the increase of prize money in lower rounds and an increase in prize money in challengers and futures. And don't keep dragging the ranking here, cause that is immaterial, and no, he is not far greater than his female adversaries, the only reason why they ATP generate more crowd is because they have more stars than WTA. I don't think Stakhovsky will draw more crowd than a Lucic or a Bondarenko.
