Petition for women 5 set matches!

It's sexism that women do not play the best of 5 sets when men do. Women are super athletes just like men. It isn't a strength issue, women really are just as capable for this endurance level.

Women are now getting paid the same as men when men have a harder job, this is sexism.

If women tennis players want equal pay then it's about time they have equal work.

SIGN THE PETITION

Re: Petition for women 5 set matches!

Women are going to have equal pay at the majors.
They need the WTA to match the ATP in prizemoney. Number of sets is irrelevant. The WTA has to expand more to where the money is. And they are starting to do that with their 2010 Roadmap.

Re: Petition for women 5 set matches!

I won't sign a petition that may force me to wait for another couple of hours during Slams before I can watch a real match between men.

I don't know, call me old fashioned but I like women

Re: Petition for women 5 set matches!

Why in the world would you want to watch more womens tennis. Its painful enough watching a marathon 2 set match waiting for a mens match in the Slams. I couldnt imagine waiting out 5 sets.

Re: Petition for women 5 set matches!

I agree with both of you... I wouldn't want more womens tennis but it's just making a point that if they want to get paid the same, they should earn it.

I agree. Another 2-3 sets of DFs and UEs are too much.

Re: Petition for women 5 set matches!

5 set women's match would be too painful/dull/tiresome to watch...and that's coming from a woman.

Re: Petition for women 5 set matches!

I'd rather kill myself than vote for this shit! 5 set women's matches?? I don't even want 3 set matches, how about just a super tiebreak for 5 mins and then get them off the court so we can watch REAL tennis.

Re: Petition for women 5 set matches!

i could never sit through five fucking sets of harkleroad vs. shaughnessey.

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.
BOO: Puerta, Davydenko, Kiefer, Ljubicic, Canas and all the DOPERS.

There is also a very special place in my heart for the three greatest WTA players of all time ---- Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, and Monica Seles!!!

I agree, I will however sign a petition to take out ad scoring in womens tennis and eliminate the third set for a 10 point tie break...
