Equal Prize Money at the Grand Slams? It's not equal. Simple as that.

http://www.patcash.co.uk/2016/05/equal-prize-money-at-the-grand-slams-its-not-equal-simple-as-that/

To be honest I’ve been hesitant to touch this controversial issue. In today’s politically correct climate and social media fueled outrage culture there seems to be some topics that simply cannot be discussed without immediately being called a sexist or worse.

Shutting down conversations by resorting to name calling rather than engaging with the idea in an intellectually honest way has unfortunately become commonplace online. The reputational cost of being smeared simply for sharing my thoughts and the resulting headache in having to deal with the fallout is one the reason I almost didn’t write this post.

However, problems don’t go away if we don’t talk about them. And the controversy and problems surrounding the gender equality and equal prize money debate in tennis will not go away until we can have an open and honest conversation about it. That’s what I’m trying to do here. Let’s hope I don’t regret it.

Hi Jim. Thanks for commenting.

I'm not advocating players be paid based on how long they stay on court. As I say in the article: "I’m not advocating that players should be paid exclusively based on match time. That would just be silly."

What I'm advocating for is a level playing field and equality at the Grand Slams. best-of-5 is something the players want and fans want to see. It'll also bring in more ad dollars and raises the level of the game overall.

This primary issue is equality, not the money.

The notion that women can’t play best-of-five sets and need to be "protected" at the GS is ridiculous condescending.

I fail to see how playing bo5 at the GS will hurt women, decrease visibility and not create role models... I'll do the opposite in my opinion.

As I say in the post "The sad truth is that women don’t play best-of-five sets partly for reasons rooted in old fashioned sexism of low expectations." We need to get past this.

I hope this helps to clarify my position a bit. You can also have a look at the +Medium version of this article where you can see my highlights: https://medium.com/@PatCash/equal-prize-money-at-the-grand-slams-6f7361c9a783#.ukfst0y7y

They all have a shot. Any of the top guys can beat any of the top guys on the right day. But Djokovic seems to be able to maintain top form better than anyone.

I reckon Stan has a shot too.

Djokovic has a relatively nice draw so I think I'd pick him. Be nice for Andy or Roger to get it though.
