Again . . . what is this business about men working twice as hard? How hard you work does not determine your compensation for anyone in our economic system except for hourly workers. To pick one example, take a law firm (or medical practice). The lower-level professional often works much harder than the top dog person who brings in the business.Well speaking of 21st century and equal pay, would you like to be earning the same salary as your female co-workers (if you're a man), but have to work twice as hard? Would you like to be earning the same salary, yet you're the one pulling in more revenues?
Who are the top dogs in tennis right now? Who puts butts in the seats? Federer, Nadal, Williams, Williams, Clijsters, Ouidin, Sharapova. You will notice that this list has a lot of women on it.
I beg your pardon?Besides, women's tennis is not as exciting as men's tennis, even female viewers say so.
I think women's tennis is just as exciting as men's tennis. In some ways and in some matches, it is more exciting. As I have said many times before, some viewers (perhaps most viewers) do not watch tennis to marvel at the speed of Gonzo's FH or the kick of Isner's serve or the RPM's of Nadal's ball. They watch for drama. They watch for Serena cramping and rolling around on the grass of Wimbledon. They watch for the possibility of Ouidin knocking off top players one by one.
And if they are anything like me, they *love* a first-rate meltdown. I will take Zvonereva on the ground smacking her knees and ripping tape off of her legs between points over Andy Murray or Gael Monfils patrolling the baseline any day.
