If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

Even if I'm for equal prize money, I still think it's unfair that R128 players get the same prize money even if it's easier to be World #100 for women than men. But what if women had draw of 64 in slams, I think men's World #128 is as close to World #1 as women's World #64. Then give women the same prize money on R64 as men get on R128, and give women's winner 6/7 of men's champion's prize money, as they play 6 matches instead of 7.

outstanding ! Don't expect Hypnotize to bow down though .. he/she will probably come back with something along the lines of "I wish you had a daughter" or "no matter what you say, it will never change", or some other red rotten herring... As for Hian, he of gifs and cherry picked stats, he will probably try to prove it was universally praised by posting Billie Jean King's and Venus' statements...

that may be true, he is not being very diplomatic about it , but maybe he is being nasty to those people who are being nasty to him first?

So the children have come out to play.

When I said universally praised, I meant among commentators and the media. Let's not pretend your opinion even matters on this forum of fools let alone in the wider world.

Oh WOW, commentators & the media! Those beacons of truth & light. That changes everything.

P.S. Obviously the opinions of actual tennis players about, erm, tennis, don't count.

For those of you who have had to endure this thread for a lot longer than myself, aside from Hian and Hypnotize what other idiots should I be ignoring?

Men at tennis >>> Women at tennis.

Best of 5 sets >>>> Best of 3 sets.

Equal pay in slams = bullshit.

When those players are idiots like Stakhovsky, Simon and Tisarevic then no, their opinions are not important.

Whatever you may think of the media and tennis commentators, it is them that were pushing the slams on the matter and it was them that provided all the positive coverage when it finally happened. Tennis is a business and it need to promote itself in the best light possible. It has to court the media and bow to public pressure in order to prosper. Equal prize money provided a platform to do that and tennis has shown itself to be a pioneer among sports.

You are just a nobody on a forum and that is why your opinion on equal prize money didn't prevent it happening and won't cause it to be overturned.

It shouldn't have happened in the first place then none of this would be going on.
