A few weeks ago, Rafael Nadal apparently claimed that it's right that men earn more than women in tennis, comparing it to female models earning more than male models. In an interview to TIME Magazine, the American player Venus Williams was asked to comment on it. 'I don’t know anything about modeling. I guess that’s a metaphor that makes sense to him,' Venus said.
She recognized that some steps forward have been taken but at the same time she admitted: 'There’s still a lot of work to be done. But men have to want it just as much as women. That’s very important. We have to raise our sons in a way that, that we see women as equals. It all happened so quickly,' she added about having the same prize money in Grand Slams. 'We all thought we were going to fight for a lot more years.'
