Many light years ago, a male had the gall to open up a can of worms.
Billie Jean King quickly put him in his place
Wikipedia – King is an advocate for sexual equality. In 1973, at age 29, she won the so-called Battle of the Sexes tennis match against the 55-year-old Bobby Riggs.
Now this Raymond Moore chap has done it again by bringing up the matter of “how lucky the ladies are”.
OK, so us guys are not the brightest among the tennis racket collection, but come on guys, when will we ever learn?
Now, as a male, I have no claim about being a rocket scientist, but long for the day when –
“Great news ! Equal pay for equal play – women tennis players will now play 5 sets in all tennis matches. Same as the men. No more unfair discrimination ! Next ? Open singles matches for all – say NO to gender discrimination ! Number one women’s champion to play number one men’s champion at Wimbledon this year for unified singles champion.”
Another thoughtless male is reported in saying –
“Wimbledon tickets for the 6 days when only one sex plays present cost per ticket Centre unless stated;
Mens Final -3950
Mens Semi – 3350
Mens Quarters – 2650
Mens Quarters Court 1 – 1280
Ladies Final – 925
Ladies Semi 725
Ladies Quarters 670
Ladies Quarters Court 1 – 550
Read into it what you wish but its pretty clear to me.”
I tell you what guys. We are cruising for a bruising?
