    Now , we are having , arguably the best WTA's match , #1 versus best player
    and the arena is hardly 40% full .
    Based just on revenue stream , it is unfair than men make same money than women .
    Who is pimping who ???

    Olympic doesn't have to pay the players for the point to be valid. The spectators still had to buy a ticket and revenue is generated all the same. Fail post.

    Serena's matches are boring. Particularly when she has no competition...

    This.

    Everyone and their dog knew Failarenka had a snowballs chance in hades of winning that match so no one wanted to waste their time there when they could be watching a real match over on center court.

    Thanks everybody, but I think the secretary should make the same as the CEO she's working every bit the same as her boss, she is answering all his calls, doesn't that equate to him managing a million dollar enterprise? Come on, we need equality in the world!

    Why are people still making threads about this? Everyone knows the WTA is a total joke and nobody cares about it except for middle-aged men.

    Why do you have to worry about it? It's not like you're the one being screwed out of money.
