Stu Posted April 4, 2006 Report Share Posted April 4, 2006 Wimbledon is the only one of the Grand Slams not to offer equal prize money to the men's and women's champions after the Roland Garros changed its policy for this year. French Open organisers have decided to offer equal prize money to the champions, however, other women players there will get less than their male counterparts, prompting criticism from the WTA Tour. Personally I'm all for equal pay for equal work for the sexes, although, male tennis players will often play five-sets matches in a Grand Slam while women will often play as few as two during their matches. Perhaps women should play a maximum of five set too or maybe the it's reasonable that there is a prize disparity? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
