Calling it shortBillie Jean King would have happily seen me relegated to a French sty in the company of Nicholas Chauvin, but not any more. For Brijnath has made me see the light through the net.
Until yesterday I couldn't quite see any logic in the "equal pay for men and women at the Grand Slams" debate, for didn't the men slog out five of the most motivation-sapping sets and then do it again tomorrow? While the women daintily flitted through to the semi-finals only to choke 6-1, final set in the 2nd thirty minutes of the match? Apparently, I haven't been watching my tennis properly. Read Rohit Brijnath's article (link) in last week's Sportstar, where despite the not-so-shariif sans-serif machinistic fonts of the revamped sports-magazine, he makes his point. And takes the match with it.
Rs. 4/- per issue is no reflection on you, sir.
