As a tennis newcomer, I am unsure of the relative levels of competition. I got in an argument tonight with some family members about women's tennis. I claimed that the top high school boys could probably beat the world's best women. I based this assumption off of other sports; for example, the best high school boy runners are faster than the women's olympic champions; similarly, basketball high school allstar teams would demolish a WNBA team. So what is the gender comparison? Could my Uncle, a former D1 scholarship player (now 38 years old with kids, who rarely practices) win the women's US open? Maybe after a month of practices? please discuss.
