Why are the paid the same amount of money? Is this gender discrimination or not?

Lawn tennis as it’s globally known is becoming more popular in our time. Thanks to the likes of Venus and Serena Williams, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Norvac Djokovic and those who laid the foundation for them. Empirically, these men and women work very hard to get to the top.
Literally, it is a thing of joy to see these energetic people harvest the fruit of their mental and physical exertion. But, equal work should always translate to equal pay. The design of ladies playing three sets instead of the five sets played by their male counterparts but, are paid the same amount is defective by any mathematical calculation. This abnormality can be corrected peacefully and friendly. Either way, the fans will be happier. Simply put, let both ladies and gents play three sets or play five sets flat out. Sincerely, I will always stand with the women if they are short changed for a job because of their gender and vis-a-vis. I rest my fingers. Welcome to http://www.provocativedebate.com.

Lawn tennis is packed with action, intrigue and suspense on the court. This is as a result of lengthen practice before the proper games, coupled with intense athletic and energetic display on the big occasion. However, every energetic effort deserve a fair pay irrespective of gender involvement. The method of ladies playing three sets while the gents play five sets but paid same amount of money is faulty. Truly, It’ll be fair enough if they play equal sets, whether three or five sets as the case may be. Why the disparity? when we all know both the ladies and gents are up to the task physically. Sincerely, the governing body of the game need to review and correct this anomaly for the interest of the game.
