Re: Women should be made to play 5 sets at GS level
I think that's a good idea by JSeles. It's blatantly unfair for the women to get equal prize money when they don't have to play five sets, but I don't think they were going to get the equal money any other way. The grand slam organisers probably want to keep three-setters for TV spectators who don't have the time to sit through a match that goes to five. If both men and women played three sets to start off with, they wouldn't lose the concept altogether, and it would kill two birds with one stone... very fast ladies' finals and boring men's early rounds that go on too long.
