World number one Novak Djokovic has challenged equivalent prize money in tennis, indicating as they’ve more viewers, guys should get better prizes.
He secured use of seeing data to ascertain reasonable distribution of prizes at occasions that were joint.
Djokovic described the remarks as “not politically correct”.
The Serbian player said women “fought for what they deserve and they got it”, but that the men’s ATP tennis world “should fight for more”.
“Stats are showing that we have much more spectators on the men’s tennis matches. I think that is one of the… reasons why maybe we should get awarded more.”
“As long as it is like that and there is data and stats available and information… upon who attracts more attention, spectators, who sells more tickets and stuff like that, in relation to that it has to be fairly distributed.”
Mr Moore caused controversy earlier when he said: “If I was a lady player, I would go down every night on my knees and thank God that Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal were born, because they have carried this sport. They really have.”
He later apologised for the comments.
