At the US Open Tennis Tournament why is it that Men play 5 sets Women play 3? Equal Payouts


My only reason for asking the question is that both winners get paid the same for winning the tournament. So why would they not play the same amount of tennis? I do understand that is how it has always been. But when will the equal playing time be implemented?
