Sexism in tennis

Equal Pay for Equal Play


My name is Angelika and I am from Athens, Greece. I am currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education and Sports Science while doing parallel studies in Communication at DEREE – The American College of Greece.

I am a feminist and believe in the equality of the sexes. Thus, this topic is very close to my heart since I am a semi-pro tennis athlete and believe that both genders should be treated and awarded equally.

In this blog  I will talk about the wage gap between the two sexes and the efforts female tennis players have made in order to establish equal pay. Also, you’ll find posts about the difficulties women in tennis had to surpass in order to achieve equal pay and how some top-ranked tennis players feel about the equal prize money. If  you find this issue interesting, you should probably stick around. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
