False dichotomy.

I think I know what you're getting at though.

Well then maybe you can tell me about it because I have no idea what I'm trying to prove here. Seriously.

Re: Hypothetical question: Which one would you prefer to see at the US Open?

The idea of a Men's Grand Slam final being reduced to three sets is deplorable to me. I have no objections however to Women playing five sets, actually with a good matchup I would thoroughly enjoy it.

Of course Pin v Meusburger would not be such an enjoyable matchup, in truth it would be pretty gruesome, but I would happily sit through a six hour epic Pin v Meusburger 5 setter if it meant saving the Men's slam matches from being reduced to three sets.

Petrova-Henin, because maybe Petrova would get it together after losing 2 sets.

Fefer vs Nadal would be a better match

It's the 3 set vs. 5 set equal prize money all rolled into one hilarious example.

Can you imagine sitting through 3-4 hours of a shitty women's match played to five sets? Or a men's final between the two best players reduced to three sets?

I can only guess the thread starter is silently making the argument that things should remain as they are. Or that women definitely should not be playing 5 set matches? Or that everyone should be playing 3 set matches because it means you spend less time on your ass watching. You pick.
