Whether it is Serena who completes her fairytale comeback in the Wimbledon ladies final on Saturday or Angelique Kerber who spoils the American’s happy ending, the ladies singles’ champion in 2018 will walk away with the same £2.25m cheque as their male counterpart.

Serena was one of the leading campaigners when Wimbledon became the last grand slam to offer the same pay in 07. But more than a decade later, the picture outside of the majors shows that across the calendar year, the gender pay gap is still a chasm.

o far in 2018, 71 per cent of the world’s top 100 men have earned more than women of the same ranking, based on prize money per tournament played.

Making the womens title pay the same as the mens title is an example that forced pay equity makes no sense.

I agree with wages equity for women doing the same jobs as men.

But trying to pretend that playing the special tournament just for women is doing the same job as winning the open tournament is taking it too far and a set back for ordinary women facing real wage inequality in lower end jobs imho.

If nothing else it gives those that disagree totally an example to hold up that is questionable.

Seriously this topic is evergreen, its really simple. Do women or men want to play free for us? definitely NOT
when it comes to money everyone wants more, broadcasting channels get more views on men games and they got more sponsors and get more paid if you apply it on women's matches thn you can see the points where they lacking.
