Legendary Croatian tennis star Goran Ivanisevic has joined in on the debate whether it is fair that women’s tennis players are paid as much as their male counterparts.
The former Wimbledon champion has agreed with stars such as Giles Simon that women earn far too much money compared to men in the sport.
“The difference is enormous. The question is the prize money for tournaments. Men play for 6 hours, and they play for 33 minutes. I respect women’s tennis, there are a few of them who play very good, but the main difference is that some better coaches (male) could beat the women’s world number one, so I think that they don’t deserve the same money,” said Ivanisevic on Antena Radio today.
