AS A long-time supporter of women getting equal pay for equal work, I fail to understand why the prize money for the men’s singles and women’s singles at the forthcoming Wimbledon championships is the same.

The women play a maximum of three sets and usually end up with two, in under two hours. 
The men have to play up to five sets, often playing for four hours or more, and at a far higher physical level, judging by their exhaustion at the end. 
Seems unjust?
