    Equality

    ok now we are starting to see some common ground, you said that in grandslam events pay is based on performance and not the interest they generate (since a grandslam means alot to players it has leverage), and i agree with that wholeheartedly. now the difference is i believe that winning a 5 set match is a bigger achievement than winning a 3 set match, some players are fast and can drive you crazy chasing everything down (murray, simon) others have rocket launchers for arms (delpo, roddick) and others are surgically precise (fed, davydenko) every player uses the tools he or she has and should not be punished for it, i feel that equal pay for women for 3 sets instead of 5 is unfair to the men who play 5 sets and are on-court often for 3+ hours.
