Tennis Players. Greedy AND soft. Just ask Andy.

Yep. The top players are talking about possible strike action.

Because, in the case of Andy Murray, who has won a massive two titles this year, his rather paltry earnings of $3.4 million US just aren't enough recompense for such a stellar performance.

Fair dinkum, no wonder I hate tennis...

"Andy Murray has warned that the biggest names in tennis could go on strike to push through changes to the sport's exhausting calendar"

They're not forced to play every tournament are they?

Golf has an event every week but the players pick and choose which they wish to play (although they do have a defined off-season)

but it is little wonder Zat hates tennis

If he finds the going too tough the stoopid POM should pick and choose his tournaments like the Williams sisters do ...or he could be a Brave Scot and STFU and get on with playing tennis

Possibly one of the sagest things you've ever posted. Choreographed grunting in a confined space.

Just thought of this...

I don't know what the rate of pay is for being on a road repair crew, on the blunt end of a shovel/pick/jackhammer. But in Austalia, under most awards, your get four weeks of anual leave a year. Meaning you work 11 months. And I suspect that being on the operater's end of said construction equipment is a hell of a lot more hard work than being some sort of pampered softcock #4 in the world rankings tennis 'star', but it wouldn't go close to $3.4 mill for those 11 months.

The guys who started off the pro tour played the game week in, week out for very little recompense. Murray should read up on the history of the game and see what they went through to let him be pampered s0ckcock. They didn't have tiebreaks and didn't sit down when changing ends. Qunt.

I wouldn't walk across the street to watch most of them strut their stuff.

The women's game for instance is powered by a production line of robotic anonymity.

The only reason to glance askance at women's tennis is the hope that a tit may pop out of a top.

Of course, knowing my luck, the only time I'd get to see it happen it would be one of the Williams sisters...

I thought it was more about the calendar than money?

I don't recall money ever being mentioned.

The thing is, dear vilky, the blokes who 'work so hard' travelling the globe first class, staying in 5-star hotels, and having their every whim taken care of for the eleven months of the year get pretty well compensated for it.

Yeah, Zat, if you don't want the matches, don't play the tournament. Couldn't be more simple. Or more piece of piss to do.
