I'm just trying to make it clear to some of the posters on this board who, apparently, have never seen world class tennis, men or women, that it's a fallacy to think that the WTA women don't hit the crap out of the ball. They do. The biggest difference between the men and women is their movement and athleticism, and to a lesser extent their serves, not as much their ground strokes.
