Re: Peak Bartoli vs. Peak Seles (After Comeback)
I think it would be pretty even personally, but everyone and their dog will say Seles because A) people are obsessed with tennis being shit atm and B) it's Bartoli, who many people like to put down even though she's a pretty great player when on form and not mooching around about some nebulous injury.
Tennis seems to attract bizarre logic, though... like the whole belief that women can't play 5 sets because they are women... when women run... marathons... and not 3/5ths-marathons-cos-they're-all-soft-and-have-boobies-so-better-not-tire-the-poor-petals-out.
PS - I know it was a tangent, but for the record I have no desire to see best of 5 sets for women (or men for that matter, best of 3 is a great format) - it's just the insane logic that women, competing versus other women, somehow would have insufficient physical ability to play for 5 sets.
