Women should play 5 set matches in tennis

Dear Larry Scott, It\'s sexism that women do not play the best of 5 sets when men do. Women are super athletes just like men. It isn\'t a strength issue, women really are just as capable for this endurance level. Women are now getting paid the same as men when men have a harder job, this is sexism. If women tennis players want equal pay then it\'s about time they have equal work.

    5 years ago Comments: I strongly believe that the women and men should both play the same amount of time. What I would like to see is for the men and women both play the best out of three sets with more games; for example, one should have to win 8 or 9 games to win the set opposed to winning 6 or 7 games. Another option is to still play best out of 5 sets with shorter sets: whoever 4 or 5 games first wins that set. I personally do not like watching the men play because their matches are way too long and they are really boring to me.
