Anyone hear Jim Courier talk about how stupid women tennis players are?

Today while on armstrong commentating the Murray match he basicly said that women tennis players are stupid because they don't use any strategy and are basicly ball bashers, said he wishes more were like Martina Hingis, then the tour would be better.

He must not watch it that often. Yes, the young girls are just ball-bashers, but the veterans are intelligent tennis players.

Re: Anyone hear Jim Courier talk about how stupid women tennis players are?

I heard that and it pissed me off. He actually insinuated that the vast majority of the women on the tour don't have brains and just bash the ball.

Look a the F-ING MEN'S TOUR JIM! The women ACTUALLY RALLY rather than simply serve and return. The fact that their serves can be broken forces them to have deeper strategy. That's exactly why women's tennis is more entertaining. It's always been that way.

Granted, women's tennis is becoming more like men's...a power game. But men's tennis (with the exception of Rafa and Federer) is becoming even more exponentially brainless and boring. How many men can competently volley unless they get a short ball?!?

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

Jim Courier can kiss my @ss!

Re: Anyone hear Jim Courier talk about how stupid women tennis players are?

I know all they do is hit the ball back and forth with a lot of topspin really hard and then hit a stupid drop volley

Re: Anyone hear Jim Courier talk about how stupid women tennis players are?

Women can't catch a break. They get called out all the time, ball bashers, known for their looks and not talent. It's an ever changing game. They want more players to be like X then they say X doesn't have the tools to win, Y is great for her power, but then ball bashers are bad for the game. No one wins and it's really old.

Yes, I did. When I heard it, all I could say was Shut Up. I told my husband that he just said that women tennis players were not smart, like Martina.

Even that isn't just a "ball-bashing" match.

Flavia was mixing in topspin lobs with flat shots, and even Niki who's a ball basher was playing her service games smartly...
