Lindsay Davenport's math--not as good as her tennis

As part of Tennis Channel's lead-in to Wimbledon, there is a feature in which different players are interviewed about equal prize money at the tournament. Lindsay Davenport explains to us that it is a good thing since "here in America, we're used to equality." The millions of women who make only 77 cents for every dollar American men earn for doing the same job--despite passage of the Equal Pay Act 45 years ago--might argue with that.

Maria Sharapova comments on equal pay, too--and how beneficial it is to "the girls."
