Yeah, I remember. The many past players had said that they should make the prize of WTA low.

At least. Present ATP is growing from those past times.

If they will play on the best of 5 sets and will generate the same revenue as ATP then the answer is a simple YES.

Just make the women's game best of 5 sets and end this pointless debate. I agree, though, while they're playing best of 3 sets, women should not be paid the same as men in grand slams. So, make it best of 5 sets and everyone will be happy.

The problem is that nobody wants to watch that much women's tennis.

The women have made it clear they are happy to play best of 5 at the slams, too.

Heard through the grapevine that the ATP actually is against the idea - as they'll lose their % of TV and court time and are afraid of losing fans to WTA (In period where Federer, Murray and Nadal's stars are fading - Bouchard, Stephens, Robson rising).

I don't necessarily agree with the names used, but they were the names given to me.
