The 2019 Championships, Wimbledon
... starts Monday ! ... as usual, a look through some seeding numbers. ...men's ;

5,6,7 - Thiem, Zverev, Tsitsipas. - grouped together here as the new guard of tennis, but who will be the breakout champion ?
11 - Medvedev . the Russian returns to form on grass, and made the Queens semi final last week
17 - Berrettini . fast improving young Italian has been highly rated by Federer himself.
19 - Auger - Alliassime. . Felix A-A has massive potential at just 18. was highlighted on here by Far Cough earlier in the year

...women ;

3 - Pliskova . excellent player, can win the whole thing
5 - Kerber - back to her best by thrashing Halep this week
19 - Konta . reaching last fours now, just needs a bit more mental strength
31 Sakkari . im a fan of this tough little player

It better to have collective bargaining...just look at the uncompetiveness of La Liga and Serie A. If the Premiership adopted their financial model then overnight most of the teams would be pushed into receivership including ours.

At least every team here gets £100m plus prize money depending on final position.

Re: The 2019 Championships, Wimbledon
You could argue that Chesterfields centre forward has had as many early starts and training sessions as Sergio Aguero but don’t imagine he expects he should be paid as much.

Have said before that Wimbledon (like the Olympics) is one of the few sporting events that at the very top level (ie the Grand Slams) is sold as a package of men’s and women’s tennis so the women COULD argue they are equal partners.
Would be interesting though if they separated it into two tournaments one after the other and totted up the ticket, sponsorship and tv revenue.

Re: The 2019 Championships, Wimbledon
Call me dim but I assume that the equal prize money is reward for the years of early starts and training from a very young age which only intensifies during a professional career.

The women might only go to 3 sets but the journey to get to professional status in the first place is most probably the same as the men.

Re: The 2019 Championships, Wimbledon
I think there has been talk that in the future there could be a change for the women to go to the same number of sets as the men, particularly in the slams and say from the quarter final stage. I think the women would welcome this.


I don't begrudge Halep her money, thought she was superb the way she dismantled Williams!

No issues with the prize money, only the sad cunts want to analyse things like that.

prize money (or even sport itself) isnt measured by the hour)

Except, rather ridiculously, they don't. The two who women played for 56 minutes yesterday got exactly the same dough as these two blokes got for 4 hours 57 minutes of vastly superior tennis.
Or perhaps you were being ironic.

Re: The 2019 Championships, Wimbledon
I don’t think they do. Have a feeling that both sexes get paid the same in majors. However, they shouldn’t do.

Re: The 2019 Championships, Wimbledon
tie breaks at 12 - 12 now, after Isner played for about a month

Re: The 2019 Championships, Wimbledon
Didn't know they had tie breaks in the 5th set?

Re: The 2019 Championships, Wimbledon
Although a great match personally I prefer the Borg era when there was more serve and volley, today it's more I'll hit it to you, you hit it back until someone makes a mistake.

And that ladies and gentlemen is why the men get paid more prize money

This match has lasted longer than Andy Carroll's season.

I thought it would be dull. I was wrong.
