Why do women only play best of three sets in tennis? Men play best of five. How cute.

Is it because they are just so much more physically less able than men to play best of five? What I am just a bit surprised about is how not one burly woman has ever been utterly offended by such an insult.

Are women insulted by that? Should metoo women be offended by that? Based on everything they yell and scream about (you know how they are physically equal to women in every way) shouldn't they be offended by that?

Hmmmm?

You mean men are better athletically than women?

You figure that out for yourself?

Yet you support biological males identifying as women and playing against biological women. You’re a hypocrite.
Was hypocrisy your major at U of Buffalo?

People will fall asleep if they watch too much women’s tennis.

Well, the same reason why we do tune in now to watch women's tennis, women's golf, womens ice skating, or gymnastics and volleyball, is EXACTLY the SAME REASON we DO NOT tune in to watch women's basketball.

Here, let me clarify.









And then there is women's basketball.....



:laughing0301: That is a woman, they claim.

Anyway, sorry women. Yes, that is the way it is. We are all dogs, and it is true. I am guilty as charged.

Dare you to go to Berkeley campus, and walk around with that on a big sign on campus.

Something like this will punch your stupid face.

If a woman play longer than 3 sets they start to cramp up and cry. I believe that if women want the same pay as men, then they do the same work as men. Pro golfers, women should play from the same place as the men do(watch their scores go up to just below par). Women play 5 sets during the majors, watch them crawl on the ground because they cant move anymore. I would pay good money to see the frustrations of those women who bitch about equal pay, then not do what a man does.

The OP is a sad little person.

It has to do with endurance. I would wager any of them could wipe the floor with the OP

There are a number of possible reasons that men play best of 5 while women play best of 3.

To start with, it's only true during the Grand Slam matches. The men apparently play best of 3 any other time.

There have been a couple of periods during which women were able to play best of 5 matches. From what I've read, most of the decisions for abandoning that came from men.

There's tradition, there's scheduling, there's a question about whether fans actually want it, and it may be that men's games tend to be shorter, meaning that their best of 5 matches would be shorter than women's best of 5 on average. I don't know if that latter point is true, but it sounds possible, considering men generally hit harder which could lead to more aces and shorter volleys.

Who watches men's tennis, and if they do, what sort of fruitcake would watch any of the other tennis matches other than the grand slam events?

Does it matter? As long as all women compete on the same level, it's fine.

Women’s Tennis does well and draws as well as the men’s matches

Many find their games more compelling
