I am reading Inside Tennis now and it quotes Simon Barnes of The London Times: ----------- "Women are not athletically inferior to men. In most sports, women operate to ... different standards... In many ways women are physically superior. When it comes to extreme endurance, tolerance of pain, coping with extremes of temperature and sense of balance, women beat men every time. But most sporting events - being invented by men - are not tough enough to reach the point at which female superiority kicks in." ------------ My own two observations prove this beyond a doubt: 1. In the B grade movies where a team of people are always escaping from a dinosaur/mutant crocodile/mutant shark/big anaconda/horror serial killer etc, a scantily dressed woman always survives till the end, while the men get killed one by one. 2. Henin's one handed backhand is superior to Federer's.
