This is not a thread to bash on womens tennis, although it may look like it. I'm just curious about the phenomenon of "moonballing", and why it isn't as common in the ATP as in the WTA. I've been watching almost as much womens tennis as mens tennis the last month, and I've been pretty blown away that women can moonball eachother for like five strokes each, which NEVER happen in mens tennis. Then the question is - why is that? My answer would be that they would be punished by an overhead from the baseline, regularly resulting in a winner or a advantage in the rally, but that would go for women aswell, wouldn't it? Are women just that uncomfortable with executing an overhead from the baseline? They do it all the time, it's called a serve. Many women just charge into the net, and rarely do they get the payout as men do from an offensive attack from the baseline. I'm not a good tennis player myself, but I would not hesitate going for the overhead instead of trying "the charge" or just keep on moonballing and waiting for something to happen (this may also have something to do with the fact that I never play matches that matter as much as the professionals). Please someone with better tennis-IQ/knowing, explain this to me because it is f-cking boring to watch!
