That makes no sense. If women are not as strong as men, then they can't hit the heavier ball as hard either. If they can't hit the ball as hard, the same ball won't have as much momentum when it hits their racquets.

I think maybe they use the lighter balls to give viewers the illusion that they're hitting the ball as hard as the men.
