Victory belongs to the most Tenacious

Alternatively "Victory belongs to the most persevering".

The quote was originally from Napoleon, but was also used by Roland Garros (A First World War hero and trailblazer for aviation).

French Open (Also often referred to as Roland Garros), is a Grand Slam tennis tournament (Highest level tournament). This quote adorns one of its stadiums, and I really feel it fits in this setting. Winning a Grand Slam tournament is an act of perseverance.

But I have one issue with it.

Why in the world would women not also play best of 5 sets, as the men do?

A big part of why this quote fits this tournament so well, is exactly that; it is best of 5 sets, not 3. You need to persevere.
I see no reason why that shouldn't be the same for women.

I feel its robbing both the female athletes, and the audience of great and potentially legendary matches.

Who am I?

Just a random web designer from Norway, but also a big tennis fan. For the interested, I've actually also made the web page for Casper Ruud via my small design firm Vasser. Hopefully he will soon pride himself with a Roland Garros title!
