3 pages and it took to this post for the proper answer. If you go to any tournament and watch men and women hit side by side, the men cover their shots with much more spin. They are naturally stronger so imparting the spin while still hitting the ball hard is easier for them.

On short balls, the flatter you hit them the more likely you are to miss them as your margin for error is less. Djokovic hitting a short ball for a winner has so much higher margins than say sharapova.
