Default Men and Women equal pay at Grandslams.....

After watching Simona Halep's shocking tank and the dreadful quality in tennis incomparison to the guys over these last two weeks, can the Billie Jean King and her gang of feminists anymore make the case for this equal pay malarky?

I don't give 2 shits about 'sex'. All I care about is who creates the 'demand'. The ATP tour create the 'demand'. Do we see the empty seats? I could hear a fat Australian kid slurping on his ice-cream it was so quiet between Halep and Maka-bloody-rova. It's all about demand & supply. These WTA matches do not need to be supplied, for the demand (In-ticket buys) to be there. You should not even be contemplating the tank in the second week of an AusOpen. What are you tanking for? The French Open?

Simona Halep is quoted as saying - 'The quarter finals of the Australian Open is enough'

I used to feel the same way. Ideally, the prize money for the men and women would be determined totally independently. However, since there are so many joint events, it's inevitable that people are going to compare the prize money for the two fields. And since increasing women's prize money to be equal with men's isn't really going to make much of a dent in the cost of the tournament, ultimately not having equal prize money serves no purpose other than stirring up controversy.

So I guess now I just think, the women want equal prize money at the slams? They probably don't deserve it, but who really cares?

It's political correctness at its most daft and actually discriminatory. Where the men play best of 5 the women should get 3/5ths prize money. It's like a part-timer being paid the same as a full-timer. Emperor and Her new clothes!

And the argument that the women train and practice as much, wel an Accountant has to take the same exams but if she works part-time she doesn't get full-time pay.

I don't think best of 5 or best of 3 matters here. A track athlete doesn't get paid more than Bolt if he runs longer distances. As posted above, it should all be about supply and demand. But for combined events with mixed sessions, it is impossible to separate. For that reason same prize money may be the best option as it avoids more problems than it causes.

This is pure political correctness... Vast majority of people do NOT support this ridiculous false forced "equal pay". I blame the powers that don't have the balls to stand up to these histrionic demands by the aging feminazis in tennis (King, Navratilova,etc..)

It's well-known the male players are totally against it, though again, political correctness does not allow them to state such publicly....

Personally, I MUCH prefer watching, attending the mens-only 1000 tourneys to the slams. Don't have to put up with womens matches between the real tennis.. Go Montreal!!!! Go Monte Carlo!!!

I really don't give a fuck, equal pay or not equal pay, the men will still be making the same amount of cash. Does it really affect us or the men if women have equal pay? Not really. Now if the men would have to make less, then I get it.
