Maria Sharapova calls for men's three-set Grand Slam matches

Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova says "it would be more exciting" if the men played three-set Grand Slam matches instead of five.

The 26-year-old winner of all four Grand Slams also credits the fact that female tennis players get the same prize money as the men on the "incredible fan base" the sport has created.

Sharapova was speaking ahead of International Women's Day  on Saturday.
