I have never watched much tennis but when I did, it was usually women's.

Of course it should be market-driven.

Just have the women play three of five to start with. Then go from there.

Don't disagree with Nadal. But I kind of assumed men & women's tennis had similar viewership numbers(though maybe not with Serena not playing as much anymore) so I'm not sure what point he's necessarily trying to make.

Guessing he was asked about the pay gap. Of course it should be driven by popularity.

If they were to get the same sponsorship and viewship playing 3 as the men do playing 5, why should they play 5? It's entertainment, not factory work.
