Will power tennis have a positive or negative affect on the game in the long run?
Consider the fact that Venus, Serena, Jennifer, Monica, and Lindsay can simply blow a player off the court and can easily dominate tennis on any surface, I think women's tennis will become more boring than men's tennis. There are only a hand-full of players who are true contenders to win big tournaments and surprises like Fernandez and Suarez are rare. Players like Martina, who use strategy to win, are an extinct species on the tour and have yet to find an answer to the big babes. In my mind, Serena is currently unbeatable - she hits the ball too hard for most of the players even to return a decent shot into play. It is only a matter of time until the top 20 become all power-players. There are fewer and fewer long rallies and the ratio between winners and unforced errors for players is increasing. On the men's side, you at least have a blend of the Hewitts and Ferreros with the Safins and Roddicks (i can't believe i just praised andy, that's a first). The men's game has become much more unpredictable and will soon become more popular than the women's game.
ugh, why do they all suck????????
