Wimbledon decided to charge the same ticket price for both men’s and women’s finals at Wimbledon 2022. This decision was made after it was reported that the men’s final in 2021 between Novak Djokovic and Matteo Berrettini tickets are much more expensive than the women’s final between Ash Barty and Karolina Pliskova.
Wimbledon’s decision shows that women’s tennis is just as important as men’s tennis. Follow All English clubs officials, “deciding to ensure that women’s events are not considered less important”.
In Australian Openwe have seen that the viewership for Ash Barty’s more matches than in the men’s upper division. This shows us that there is no need to pay extra for men’s matches as both attract almost equal viewership.

Another major reason behind Wimbledon The decision to increase ticket prices for the women’s final could be the birth of Emma Raducanu. The young Brit will play in London for the first time after her incredible win at the US Open last year.
Raducanu had a great season in 2021 in the major league but had to miss the game due to injury. However, her victory at the US Open means there will be more spectators to watch the young British player do well in London.
Raducanu has the chance to become the first UK women’s singles player to win Wimbledon since Virginia Wade in 1977. Just like Ash Barty at the Australian Open, we can expect crowds to come and support Raducanu a lot.
