Last week, U.S. Soccer, in its attempt to defend itself in a $67 million equal-pay lawsuit filed by the U.S. Women’s National Team, made just such a dated declaration. It is “indisputable science,” the federation and its attorneys asserted, that the “overall soccer-playing ability” of the women’s national team is inferior to that of the men’s. According to U.S. Soccer, the men’s and women’s don’t perform “equal work requiring equal skill, effort and responsibility under similar working conditions.” For one thing, the women don’t have

On Tuesday, officials at Roland Garros announced that, due to the threat of COVID-19, the tournament would be played from Sept. 20 to Oct. 4, instead of on its usual dates in late May and early June.
