Watching mens doubles final
It seems odd that the losing women's singles Bouchard got neary 3 Times the prize money the Winner of the Mens Doubles will get between them!!!

I agree, it should be 5-6 times as much. Singles is much more competitive and receives far more attention from fans and media.

Women's tennis prize money should be greatly reduced. It should be cut so that only women with outside earnings from modelling, sponsorships and soft pornography should be able to compete - nobody is watching for the athletic talent so why pretend?

I think they should hold a seperate women's wimbledon on different dates
Then we could judge how popular the woman's game is and they could be paid commensurate to the ticket sales

it is odd considering doubles is pretty difficult to get good at

shouldn't be that drastic of a difference

make no mistake, womens tennis is not THAT much more popular than mens doubles at this point. they are actually fairly similar

the WTA singular events have been empty for years now

what was your point OP? that women´s final was easy one-sided so now doubles should get more money and take that from women? i would give more prize money to men - for obvious reasons - maybe 50% more for men´s champion that women´s champion and the same about runner up, but pls don´t compare doubles with singles.... even women´s singles get like 10x more attention - media-fans, sponsors than any potential all star doubles match. tennis singles matches are far far far more popular than doubles and average tennis fan has probably never seen doubles match on TV - while has at least seen Federer, NAdal, Williams and so on..

True, look at tennisforum for example, there's a lot of attention for women's singles from fans, certainly not much less than for men's singles. The top female players are global sports stars, and among the highest paid women athletes. Women's singles is way more popular than men's doubles. Doubles players are overpaid in my opinion.

I know guys quoted you already but you must be probably biggest Bryans tard out there, because i can ´t explain this - how can you write this? Average tennis fans- who are like 90% of all fans - we here on MTF are big fans so have knowledge about tennis that normal average fan doesn´t have - so average tennis fan probably knows Bryans, because they read about them in press, but that´s it - but they know at least top WTA players and have watch some matches somewhere so pls don´t make such stupid statements
