Tokyo: Former world number one Venus Williams has said she would have no issues with playing five sets at grand slam tournaments after Andy Murray's recent call for equal match lengths in men's and women's tennis.
"Sure, not a problem," the 33-year-old American told AFP at the just-ended Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo, where she reached the semi-finals. "If we have to play best-of-three, we play best-of-three. If it's best-of-five that's fine too. Either way it's not a problem."
German Angelique Kerber echoed the seven-times grand slam singles champion's sentiments, saying: "I think we are fit and strong enough to play five sets."
