I heard about this last year and they were saying that there will be 5 set match on women's tour so............... i thought it was a good idea so you can enjoy yourself on the couch (or else) watching these womens playing much longer!

What do you think?

Rest In Peace, Elena Baltacha

No. Maybe for the finals or something, but it would mostly be very boring

Tatiana Golovin, Timea Bacsinzky, Petra Kvitova, Kristina Mladenovic, Laura Robson

Longer matches = more injuries.

And we certainly don't need more injuries in tennis right now!

I think 5 set finals aren't a bad idea. It'd prevent these lopsided finals.

And if you're not fit enough to play, then you shouldn't be out there.

Best of 5 for finals of GS and Tier 1's maybe. It's not like these girls dont train for several hours regularly before.

I'd have 5 sets in GS finals & YEC finals.

Henin......Myskina......Agy

sorry the women arent physically capable of 5 set matches.
it would be a terrible idea
but then again it might make them train to be much more fitter than they are right now, cos in their current fitness levels, no way.

Good luck to my favs

best of 5 is boring enough in men's game

it's especially bad when you notice tanking from players in order to save energy for the next set

19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.
