SWANNY'S WORLD OF SPORT: Equal pay is a travesty
Great champion Serena Williams misses the point about equal prize money for men and women in professional tennis.
No-one doubts Williams’ quality and her athleticism, and her domination of opponents is impressive, or that she works hard.
But her sport is a poor spectacle compared to the men’s game (quite frankly it’s dull) and the rewards on offer should reflect that.
To see Elena Vesnina (above) cashing a cheque for £500k after losing to Williams in the Wimbledon semi-finals in about two minutes was unedifying.
