Some more positive discrimination.

Maybe it's me but it seems that yet again the women have won some more discrimination against men.

It seem that women are getting paid the same as the men in professional tennis. Read here.

All well and good you may think but wait. Their hourly rate is more because they only have to play three sets against the men's five. That can't be fair and as it is based on the sex of the person then it's sexual discrimination. Bet that doesn't make it to court.

If they really want equality then the very least they could do is go for the five sets. I could life with men and women's competitions but if things were truly to be equal we would get rid of these lines and just have one big competition. Wonder why that won't happen.

So yet again it's not really about fairness and equality it getting one upon the usual straight white male. I also notice it's the same PC countries in the world that are doing this. The US, Oz and here. How long before our EU bosses make it mandatory? I wonder if they can?

Maybe it's about time the men said they were only going to play three sets. If after the third set they just knocked the ball over so it finished quickly then that would bring it out in the open. Something needs to be done. Come on men stand up for yourself.

I'm pretty sure that it is EU discrimination laws that have done this anyway; Wimbledon got there first, before the anti-discrimination law forced them to change anyway.

Makes sense. But my issue is that, asusual, they only address one part of the problem. OK bring them in line but make themplay five sets or get rid of the male/female divide and let them play together.

Let's get rid of discrimination.
