Victoria Azarenka criticizes Wimbledon scheduling system

Victoria Azarenka criticized the Wimbledon scheduling system. “It’s very obvious. It’s not only the French Open. I think Grand Slams have been more equal in terms of scheduling, which is not the case obviously this year’s French Open, which was unacceptable, I believe.

The rest of the scheduling, there is a big inequality in that, the time slots. It has to be fixed. Women should be getting the same scheduling, same time slots, and that’s one of the main issues I think with where we are gonna try to fight for this equality.

We have been fighting a lot for equality and prize money. This is the next step, for sure”. “You give 10 years of the same exposure and the same time slots as men’s get, and then we will look at those numbers (prize money) and you tell me the difference, okay? That’s what those numbers — might be still the same.

Hey, I’m not saying that. But give the same opportunity, and then let’s talk about facts. And the rest of the scheduling, there is a big inequality in that, the time slots. It has to be fixed. Women should be getting the same scheduling, same time slots, and that’s one of the main issues with where we are gonna try to fight for this equality. We have been fighting a lot for equality and prize money. This is the next step, for sure”.
