Fitness factor

After recently reading an article about how women's tennis is hindered by overweight, out of shape girls, it got me thinking. Why are the men on the ATP generally more in shape than the WTA? Is it because a lack of dedication with the women? Is it because women need the size to hit the ball harder? Personally I think its the latter.

And also what ATP players struggle with their weight?
Taylor Dent does, but I wouldn't call him fat.
Any others?

Re: Fitness factor

I don't think there is a great disparity between fitness in the women's and men's games. For every Casanova, there is a Gonzalez. For every Mikaelian, there is a Rios.

Re: Fitness factor

Hmmmm, I just realized that both the out-of-shape girls I mentioned are from Switzerland while the guys are both from Chile. Something about those two countries in particular which produces talented players lacking in fitness?
