Re: Serena vs Andy: A real discussion
The whole purpose of the handicaps is that they should be chosen in such a way that does not inhibit the handicapped player in any meaningless sense that would actually restrict their usual ability to play tennis. And there should be few handicaps, but cleverly chosen to pinpoint specifically to reduce the physical advantages a male player would have over a female player, so that the focus would then be on technique and strategy.
Alleys would address movement.
Restrictions on serves would address height/serve.
(And maybe a mixed court would address power.)

The male professionals are light years ahead of the women in putting and chipping. They're not even in the same universe. I'm not sure why that is either. You'd think that would be one area where women would at least equal the men at golf, but it is just not the case. Period.
Men have an evolutionary advantage, and I don't mean biologically.
If you play against better opponents, you are forced to improve all parts of your game.
The weak get weeded out by "natural selection".
A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
