Keep in mind that of the 5 points shown of those D1 girls in question, supposedly 5.0 to 5.5 girls, 3 of the points (2, 2, and 4 shots, respectively) ended in low level errors. The serves are much weaker than the male serves (the one girl couldn't break a raw egg with her serve). The young males are faster and stronger in general, and probably winning an inordinately high percentage of their service points.

But I'll give you that maybe, just maybe, in a match with lots of long points, those girls would generally outgrind, outsteady the young 4.0 males. Ok?
