So the All England Club have given into demands to give equal prize money to men and women at Wimbledon. On the fact of it that is to be welcomed. Men and women should indeed be treated equally - that is if the work they do it the same. In this case it isn't. Yes, they are ostensibly playing the same game, but in actual fact it's totally different. It's conducted over three sets not five and it attracts a fraction of the sponsorship money that the men's game does. Compared to the men's game, it's also very unexciting. I see no logical reason therefore - apart from political correctness - for awarding women the same prize money. It's a bit like saying Dagenham & Redbridge should get the same money for winning the Conference as Chelsea do for winning the Premiership.
And while I am at it, who on earth would want to watch a couple of women slugging a ball from baseline to baseline for an hour? It's about as exciting as watching paint dry.
