- Women do deserve the same prize money. it is clearly discrimination against them. what about all the government says about making a change, i guess they never do. (from Jordan Byrnes, Mar 2013)
- Women clearly don't deserve the same prize money as there male counterparts, particularly in tennis. If they want the same prize money they should start playing 5 sets! Wouldn't it be nice to work part-time and receive a full time salary? Kick out the grunters! (from Ando, Mar 2013)
