Default Caroline Wozniacki about the Wimbledon bias towards Men's competition

Quote:
"I would love to play on a big court. I think that's what it's all about; you work hard and practice to play on the big courts. The women really haven't gotten the opportunity here to play on the big courts. You only get one women's match on Court One and Centre Court.

"Most of last week it was only one women's match on Court Two as well. It's definitely different, that's all I can say. I think a lot of us women feel like we deserve to play on the big courts in front of a big crowd, as well."
Well, I think Wozniacki shouldn't be so upset about the men's getting privilege on the big courts, she should be upset about Serena and Sharapova always playing there from the women's side

There is no way Wozniacki gets to play on the Center Court unless she reaches the semis or unless she plays Serena/Sharapova

And after all, the organizers will always go with the ones that sell the tournament

Default Re: Caroline Wozniacki about the Wimbledon bias towards Men's competition

I can understand to a degree, but from a financial & fans perspective, women's tennis isn't as big a draw as the men's side. She's obviously been listening too much from big sis Serena.

Default Re: Caroline Wozniacki about the Wimbledon bias towards Men's competition

I heard this on the news and I agree to an extent. The issue is that the main courts only have 3 matches (it seems they want to make the grass there as fresh as possible) but both courts have a 2:1 ratio of men's and women's matches. If it is the usual 4 like the other Slams, surely they would have a 2:2 ratio. A good compromise here is have Court 1 be a 2:1 ratio for women:men, especially these courts have many overtime big matches due to no light.

I agree, too much Serena and Sharapova (and Kvitova when she was there) but what can you do, they are the Top 3 seeds, just like currently in the men's side (I think only Ward-Pospisil and Gasquet-Dimitrov are the exception within the Top 8 seeds). I guess I agree to an extent that seeing that she's the 4th Seed I think after Halep, but still, I mean see Berdych who I think wasn't able to play on Center Court, even though he's also a high seed.

Default Re: Caroline Wozniacki about the Wimbledon bias towards Men's competition

She can always apply to play agaisnt men and maybe then she will get the centre court. To be honest, I would quite enjoy seeing her not winning more than 1 point throughout the whole match against any top 200 man.

Default Re: Caroline Wozniacki about the Wimbledon bias towards Men's competition

Well, the woman tennis is just less interesting.

I have nothing against women's tennis, but I just don't like to watch it and for various resons don't find it entertaining.

Wimbledon is also a special case where they try to perserve the grass by having only 3 matches per day on court so it can "live" long enough to finals.

Men sell tickets, end of discussion.

Just be grateful Woz that you get as much money as you do as it is because of those guys playing on the big courts selling the game to the general public.

Default Re: Caroline Wozniacki about the Wimbledon bias towards Men's competition

She never won a slam and wants to push players like Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Murray, Wawrinka of the showcourts?

I am all for equal pay, but let the biggest money makers(former gs winners, homeland players and legends) earn the money and make the public happy. She is profiting enough already from the men.

Default Re: Caroline Wozniacki about the Wimbledon bias towards Men's competition

At Wimbledon they schedule the womens match in the middle of the 2 mens on Centre Court so everyone can have a drinks and food break and don't have to watch it

The truth is people wouldn't fill centre court to watch Wozniacki like they do for the big mens matches.

Default Re: Caroline Wozniacki about the Wimbledon bias towards Men's competition

Unfortunate for those that feel they're not getting on the big courts in the early rounds, but they can't complain too much when on average those men's matches on the main courts are subsidising the women's tournament with their ticket sales / TV viewership.

If you've got Federer, Nadal and Andy Murray all playing on the same day it would be an insult to Centre Court ticket holders to give them two WTA matches and only one men's match.
