    Although I’m completely for equal pay for equal work between men and women and I love watching the women play, but… why are the women getting the same prize money as the men when their matches are best 2 of 3 and the men’s are best 3 of 5? The women are doing (approx.) 30% less work!?

      Because they pull in just as many fans and thus generate just as much revenue as the guys.

        No way, do women deserve what is about 30% more than men in pay. Its compete utter rubbish to say they pull in the same amount of fans. Everyone knows the level of tennis for the womens game for all but the top players amounts to top highschool boys tennis or advanced club male players. The wear and tear on the guys is crazy, the level of tennis is far superior from the beginning to end of each and every event. Typically, only during the later rounds does the womens game get interesting..its laughable argument that women should get paid the “same” as men. But it reflects a dumbed down world were people are afraid to offend anyone. Where news media seems intent on talking about nonsensical off socially acceptable concepts that are not central to problems.
