- Reaction score
It is a victory for equality, it took Wimbledon over 30 years to react to equal pay. The women have no say in how long they play. And lets not forget outside the GS the norm for both women and men is 3 sets.I suspect she realised early on that she just wasn’t fit enough to compete at that level, at least not against an in-form Halep, and the mental lapses came from that.
Bit of a poor spectacle, IMO. A grand slam finalist should not be breathing out of their arse after a set and a third (approx. 45 minutes of play), but I can’t say I blame Serena, really. She’s been in similarly bad shape numerous times before and won, such is the sheer rubbishness of women’s tennis. Really not that ridiculous to think she could do it again.
Amusing to think that whatever Federer and Djokovic do tomorrow will earn them the same prize money as the ladies earned for their 56 minutes of work today. Another victory for equality!
