It seems that so many of the women's matches are lasting under an hour or just over an hour.  Is it time to have the women also start playing best of 5 sets?

Plus, the winnings for men and women players are the same. Not exactly "Equal pay for equal play," now is it? The men are more beaten down physically after long matches, they have a higher chance of injury, and the value provided to the fans is almost double. (Value meaning time - would you be happy spending the same amount of money to see a 20-minute movie as a 2-hour movie?)

Totally agree with above comments - women campaigning for equal pay but haven’t heard any of them asking to play 5 sets. Not quite equal at all is it !?
