Tennis – Is It Really Equal Pay for Men & Women?

It’s an interesting situation with gender equity in tennis….  In all of the Grand Slam events (US Open, Australian Open, French Open, and Wimbledon), women are paid the same as men.    However, women’s matches are best of 3 sets (typically 1.5 hours) while the men’s matches are best of 5 (typically lasting 3 hours).

Now perhaps my payroll mathematics is a little confused, but can you explain to me how tennis is equal pay?
