Was May happily married or did it because it was acceptable. It seems she did it because she was programmed? I ask this because there seemed to be a limit of what a woman can do and they showed abilities by strectching the boundaries of feminine convention with their "rolling up their sleeves." Also, the serve.

In reading this blog, I'm convinced May Sutton could have been the greatest player but did not work on that serve because of "feminine convention". Because she had speed, footwork, strokes, and toughness. In reading about women could do in their time was run fast in sprint. Now that is considered masculine. These days it is considered feminine to run long distance because sprinters tend to have muscles where long distances runners have "acceptable" muscles.
