Why gymnosperm do not require water for fertilization?

Gymnosperms are seed plants and they differ from seedless plants in not requiring water for sperm to swim in to reach the egg. The movement of pollen to ovule in seed plants relies on airborne transport, not water transport.

It is because the leaves of plant may be having enough water which they do not require for fertilization or the water stored in it will not be evaporated easiliy.
