I do like men's tennis but I don't really watch it so much.
(Women have it easier? Hmmm... I don't know - what about what a woman goes through physically and emotionally every month? I do not really know how to word this!! *squeak*
That is not always easy... *shakes head*
I hate 5 hour 5 setters. The whole 5 set thing has got nothing to
do with modern tennis or this world we live in now.
Originally it was a 5 setter because tennis was for the rich
upper class who didn't hold jobs and could spend the entire day
watching a match. Same like cricket and golf, it's leisure sports
for the rich to kill time.
Tennis is a modern pro sport, people don't have the time to
spend 5 hours sitting watching a match in the sun.
Personally I think it should be 5 setters for the men only in
the semi finals and final. I think the women could try 1 best
of 5 set in the finals. Remember they did that once at the
WTA championships with LD -vs- Hingis.
