Stenciled on the court:'50 years equal pay'. This refers to women being paid the same prize money as the men.

Can this be considered work of equal value?  Perhaps work of 3/5ths value. If the women agree to playing best of 5 sets

then fair enough, but I doubt very much that they would.

'Animal Farm' comes to mind:' All animals are created equal, some are more equal than others.'

I think that's a very simplistic way of looking at it.

Do you really think if the men only wanted to play best of 3 sets at slams it wouldn't have happened by now?

Best of 5 sets favours the better players.

Also, women on the tour have the same expenses as the men so equal prize money makes sense for that reason imo.
