I never understood people that say they prefer to watch womens tennis until now.

In the absence of tennis that is now I stumbled across old matches on youtube and I realized something. The womens game in the 80's and 90's was really enjoyable. So many players with nice looking strokes, good point construction and good footwork. Very stylish and very enjoyable and a far cry from the ball bashing robotic tennis of the womens tennis of today. I finally understand what those people are talking about who say they prefer to watch the women, their minds are stuck in the 90's.

Just one example. Graf probably my favorite player of that era but Savchenko really opened my eyes to the depth of the womens game of the time, she was only ranked 58 in singles at best and still made Graf work hard to win.
