Djokovic on equal pay: Up to men to fight for more

Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic has told ITV news it's up to the men in tennis to "fight" for the wages they deserve.

ITV news sports correspondent Ian Payne asked Djokovic if women should earn the same prize money as their counterparts - even though they play less sets.

The Serbian who has won Wimbledon twice, acknowledged it was a "sensitive subject."

He added: "Women go through different emotions which you cannot compare to men because they have different bodies.

"It's more a question for us in men's tennis and our associations and fighting for what we deserve. That's where the focus should be."
