Wimbledon pays equal prize money
Mauresmo earned £30,000 less than the men's champion
The Wimbledon Championships will hand women and men equal prize money for the first time at this year's tournament.
The announcement due at 1100 GMT by the All England Club, brings it into line with other Grand Slams after criticism from the WTA and leading women players.
Similar to the US and Australian Opens, equal rewards will be offered across the board, from the champions down to the first-round losers in all events.
The French Open only offers the same cheque to the champions.
The All England Club has previously defended the difference by saying that women had best-of-three-set matches while the men had best-of-five contests.
Three-times Wimbledon champion John McEnroe backed the change.
"I think when you've got men and women playing at the same tournament, it is ludicrous to have a difference in pay," he told the Daily Telegraph.
"It would be setting an example to the rest of society in general to have equal prize money.
"There's probably no other sport, and very few professions in this world, where a woman can earn as much as a man."
Arguably only a matter of time before they made the decision.
