Yeah. 5 sets of quality tennis I'm sure

Women spend their life dedicated to and training for tennis just as much as any man.

Of course it's the same in other sports, and often women get paid less in their respective leagues anyway (eg. womens basketball, womens football, womens gridiron), but still, it's not as if they are getting the money for nothing. The atp/wta/itf want womens tennis to be as popular as mens, so giving even prize-money helps in that regard in my opinoin.

I agree with the opinion that, at least best, WTA players work just as hard for their success as ATP players. But there's one difference at slams. Becuase of weaker level of competition and Bo3, women are able to succeed also in doubles, thus making more money as equally good male players. So, in that sense women should also play with Bo5. But people on the stadium would be deaf after an Azarenka-Sharapova five-setter, so I'd rather give women equal prize money than have them playing Bo5 matches.

But considering the amount of work, if women are overpaid in slams, they are underpaid in MM events.

THRICE as harder as Womugs path to top-100. If it is unfair...it is unfair to LOGIC , To science , to humanity , to brain and to Men. Now go drink some soda or smth you potheads.

It's one thing to believe that men in tennis deserve more money because they play more and produce higher quality etc and another thing to spew such ignorant bullshit.

Lol. I wonder what kind of self-hating, mess woman would date your trash ass.

In the meanwhile, you should notify all sports federations to stop womens sports! I mean, if you personally don't like to watch them, what's the reason for their existence?
