Australian Open

Below is the full fledged breakdown of prize money in all category and their respective rounds. Formula one fan, blogger, designer and entrepreneur. Knows thing or two about a thing a two of sports, tweak codes, make cool infographs. The women are doing approx. Its compete utter rubbish to say they pull in the same amount of fans. Everyone knows the level of tennis for the womens game for all but the top players amounts to top highschool boys tennis or advanced club male players.

The wear and tear on the guys is crazy, the level of tennis is far superior from the beginning to end of each and every event. Typically, only during the later rounds does the womens game get interesting.. But it reflects a dumbed down world were people are afraid to offend anyone. Where news media seems intent on talking about nonsensical off socially acceptable concepts that are not central to problems. That's the wrong thing to do and I wish that Novak would see that. That's done and dusted.

You should not be asking for that. It's the wrong thing. There is no suggestion that last Friday's meeting discussed increasing men's prize money at the expense of the women's tour, but the issue remains a subtext to the debate.

There are a significant number of men who think they should be paid more. Djokovic, who feels he has been unfairly portrayed as "very greedy" in some reports of recent days, made his feelings clear at the Indian Wells tournament in March As long as it's like that and there is data and stats available upon who attracts more attention, spectators, who sells more tickets, it has to be fairly distributed.

Navratilova, 61, has responded by saying Djokovic is not "seeing the big picture" and that the "guys just need to get over it".

You need to send that signal to the world that women and men are equal and you have to back it up with the prize money. He should get paid more than Novak because his ratings are better - so should Roger then get a better piece of the action?

It would never occur to him to ask. Navratilova said she also wishes players at the Australian Open had made "a little more noise" about the naming of the Margaret Court Arena. Australian Court, whose 24 Grand Slam singles titles is a record, opposes same-sex marriage. Earlier on Thursday, Britain's Laura Robson suggested the arena should be renamed.

Like time Grand Slam singles champion Billie Jean King, Navratilova says she would refuse an invitation to play in the arena and believes her name will be removed from there in future, but says she is disappointed that so many leading players have avoided commenting on the issue. It doesn't affect how you play the game or hit the ball.

Putting your head in the sand never solved anything. You have to live with yourself, and is a potential dollar more important than speaking the truth and saying how you feel? Roger Federer was supposed to be past his best but is entering a new era of dominance, says chief sports writer Tom Fordyce. Roger Federer says "age is not an issue" after beating Marin Cilic to win his 20th Grand Slam title at the age of Marin Cilic says it was difficult to adjust to conditions in the Australian Open final after organisers closed the roof.

Caroline Wozniacki says she is delighted to never again be asked about not winning a Grand Slam after success at the Australian Open.
