He'll be for the high jump when the P.C. Gestapo catch up with him.
Of course, he's got a point though.
It's true, the Roger Federer's of the world do sustain interest and subsequently money in tennis.
Cue mock allegations of 'sexism' and feign offence.
But why do these people always back down to the P.C. Zealots and issue an apology?
He obviously meant it or he wouldn't have said it.
It's a free country (just about, although they're trying,) so stand by your comments and earn some respect from those of us that can tolerate different points of view.
Again, it's those 'tolerant' liberals that are in reality some of the most intolerant people, as we've said many a time in Blog entries.
Male competitions always attract more interest than the female version of the same; not only in tennis, but all sports.
It's just a fact of life.
It's always faster, stronger, longer, higher and further etc.
People are under the illusion that a sports competition is a job, so should have equal 'pay' like any other job.
But it's not.
The clue is in the name.
It's a competition and as such, the organizers of the event are entitled to award whatever prize money they want.
This would obviously take in to account ticket sales and sponsorship deals.
And demand of course.
I mean, is there a Formula 1 female racing competition?
And if there is, does/would anybody pay to go and watch it?
Let's face it, the only reason there is more and more coverage of women's games and dare I say it, disabled games on T.V. is because Sky and the money has snapped up all the men's games; not because there is suddenly a huge demand for it.
Subsequently, the poor old B.B.C. that simply cannot compete on a 'highest bid wins' system has had to search for alternatives.
But this is where we're back to women wanting 'equality' but want special treatment (See Blog, Women in frontline combat 23/12/15).
I mean, if I were in charge of Tennis or any other competition I'd say you know what, you're right.
In the interests of equality, as we're all equal and therefore the same, we're going to scrap male and female events and simply have a competition open to all.
Mixed games and finals, no discrimination.
After all, if women want equal prize money with men, then let them beat the men.
But you know what, I don't think you'd ever see a female finalist in sport ever again, let alone a winner.
