Why do you prefer the womens game over the mens game?

For me, its because the ralleys are always longer and the points are based more around shot making than big serves. I still enjoy the mens game but when the game is based around a big serve it makes it less interesting to watch. The womens game also seems more tactical even tho i do like the power players such as serena and lindsay! What does every1 else think?

I like the womens game because there's more Sex on the court
Can't imagine to be a huge fan of an ATP-Player cuz I can't fall in love with them.

Coria v Hewitt, Agassi v Federer MUCH more tactical matches than Serena v Sharapova could ever be.

Because men's game has more deapth and variety. Women's game revolves around sheer power. It seems the more power a player possesses, the better she is in the rankings. In other words, no matter how skillful the player is, as long as she lacks in power, there's a limitation to how far she can get. On the ohter hand in men's tennis there are crafty players like Santro and Coria who, despite limited physique can match big guys.

truthfully I like the WTA better cause Jennifer Capriati plays in it. that's what keeps it interesting to me. in the men's tour there isn't one guy that i really like, so I don't care about the results. other than that, the men's game is more about power. you got shorter rallies, those big serves and coming to the net right away. I like to see a point being worked on not rushed. When Tim Henman plays I rarely see the entire match, cause to me it's so boring the way he plays.

I'm not sure about the rallies being longer.

hmmm, I don't really know why I like the WTA more. When I was little, I only used to watch the mens matches at wimbledon, thinking the women were shit.

But I took to Lindsay, and she made me follow the game more

I agree there is much more variety in the mens game, but the women are catching up IMO. The depth is getting better all the time. The womens game needs to see great matches, frequently. Great matches in terms of drama AND quality of play were few and far between this year.

I think seeing two women hitting the shit of of the ball with a great atmosphere is better than a good mens match (for me) It's just really exiting and you're like "you go girl" when they hit a screaming winner

Women's tennis sucks.

I prefer the men's game, especially at the Grand Slams.

More drama and more divas.
Well, I guess Roddick's a bit of a diva.

I believe it is because of the personalities involved in the WTA. For example a match between Lindsay vs. Venus is just a lot more than a regular match between two champions. I don't think you get to see that often among men. Or for example Jen vs. Serena, those are incredible matches which have little extra 'something'. I don't know how to describe it, I just feel it that way.

The mens game is better tennis, but men as a species bore me.

Easy - because Graf was a woman and therefore played women's tennis.

Maybe this will sound awful ( ) but I have a really bad concentration span (baaaaad ) and it is easier to watch a 3 set women's match than a 5 set men's match... I will watch a women's match, then I can go channel surfing... And then I can return to the tennis/Internet/whatever... I like men's tennis and I would like to see more men's tennis. I just think the women's game is easier to 'get hold of' for me... (At the moment... What was that about concentration span... )

So long, signature...
