Women should play five sets

Published 25/03/2016

Of course female tennis players should be paid the same as their male counterparts (DebateNI, March 24), but they also need to start playing the same number of sets.

Yes, women can go into space, climb Mount Everest, run marathons and sail around the world single-handedly, but it seems that the tennis authorities don't think women are capable of playing five sets of tennis.
