I've played sets and matches that barely get my heartrate up at all.
I've played half a game that had me dragging and crying "UNCLE" from my exertion and cardio overload.
There is a difference!
What did you expect when most of these people aren't qualified to talk about the topic in the first place? When they're not speculating based on something they have read without doing an actual study, they're posting numbers based on some random algorithm found online without factoring in individual metabolic rate and multiple trials like that of a real experiment.
