Second Serve

World No.3 Karolina Pliskova isn’t overly worried about women earning the same prize money as the men. What she is worried about is men complaining about women getting their financial due.

“I’m not the one who wants [equal prize money]. But I don’t like the men who are complaining that we would get the same money,” Pliskova told the PA News Agency. “I think it is super weak from them that they complain we have the same money as them.”

Pliskova, who will play at the Live Score Cup in Prague from 3-6 June, says that a WTA / ATP merger could be a productive development for tennis, even if it doesn’t results in women earning equal prize money across the board.

“I don’t need to have the same prize money as men. But to have the same chance to play on centre court or to have the same chance to be on TV, that should be possible with these changes,” she said, adding: It might take a couple of years to get going. It will be different, but I don’t think for the players it would change that much. It would be a good step.”
