I heard about this last year and they were saying that there will be 5 set match on women's tour so............... i thought it was a good idea so you can enjoy yourself on the couch (or else) watching these womens playing much longer!

What do you think?

No. Maybe for the finals or something, but it would mostly be very boring

no, 5 sets gets boring IMO. and it would probably lead to more withdraws

Longer matches = more injuries.

And we certainly don't need more injuries in tennis right now!

I think 5 set finals aren't a bad idea. It'd prevent these lopsided finals.

And if you're not fit enough to play, then you shouldn't be out there.

Best of 5 for finals of GS and Tier 1's maybe. It's not like these girls dont train for several hours regularly before.

sorry the women arent physically capable of 5 set matches.
it would be a terrible idea
but then again it might make them train to be much more fitter than they are right now, cos in their current fitness levels, no way.

best of 5 is boring enough in men's game

it's especially bad when you notice tanking from players in order to save energy for the next set
