your post is more about Djokovic than about the likes of Mauresmo

Some ATP fans watching how their scrubs are playing 50-shot ping-pong rallies (without any attempt from both sides to strike a winner) are just forgetting that WTA consists of different players and at the top of the tour are those whose techniques are more beneficial on the exact surfaces

Re: Why do girls miss so many simple balls?

And yet I would assume that together with other issues there's a mental one. Women and men are said to be quite different in terms of mentality. I think, it's quite obvious even though nowadays that border began to fade at some points. You know those expressions about Venus and Mars, head and heart. Let's take relationships as an example. While men just feel, women need to think and reflect. Tennis is such a dynamic and fast game, there's little room for thinking there. I guess, men tend to feel the game better than women do. Often we need to stop and think while guys play more naturally. Though it's just a theory not based on any researches therefore, I may be mistaken.

a number of TF members are watching women tennis because they like women tennis.....

I watch both and can say that there are a number of great matches and the matches which should be erazed from memory (in quality) in both tours

Yes in match quality it's probably even, but in terms of tennis skill it's different story...

I like watching WTA too when there are great matches (almost none these days), but I don't watch it to be amazed by their tennis skill if you know what I mean.

Re: Why do girls miss so many simple balls?

I think every tennis player makes mistakes on put away shots (the number would vary on the person, male or female). When you, they, or whoever knows they just have to hit one ball and they should win the point theres a good chance a mistake (overhit, dump it in the net etc) will be made.

I must say the worst female player at put away shots, in my mind, is Wickmayer as she seems oblivious to what her opponent is doing during such shots, where they are heading etc on a put away shot (there will be a male equivalent tho dont watch enough mens tennis tbh). This oftens results in a complete shocker of a "put away"

Re: Why do girls miss so many simple balls?

Hey?

There is an obvious answer.

You know there is a biological difference.

Men are using this additional pendulum to have a better
feeling for the center axis of their body while on the run.



So they can hit the ball clearly in a better balanced position.

The cramps. The bloating. JJ has told you the reason, but you refuse to hear.




































There may have been some sarcasm in that statement.

Re: Why do girls miss so many simple balls?

A combination of

1. Lack of power (reliable controlled power)
2. Lack of concentration (finishing the point in your head before you have done it with your racquet)
3. Lack of patience and judgement (is it really an easy shot or am I better off to prepare for an even better shot)
4. Shot selection (conventional volley, drive volley, let it bounce, take the overhead out of the air, slice attack or hard deep)
5. Poor peripheral vision (react to the actions of your opponent)

They all play into each other. If you are great in some areas you need to be less good in others. For example if you have great shot selection and vision you don´t need as much raw power to finish points.
