It's time for women to play in the ATP

Why not? Their first serves are as fast as men's 2nd serves. We're all the same, men/women. It's time to dump the WTA and have just one professional tennis governing body. This would also inspire the women (or men) to excel further. It's too boring watching a seeded female player trounce a nobody. Time to change. If not today, soon. That day will come. You'll see.

she could probably physically beat up most of the top 10 guys but I doubt she could get a game off the top 250 or so, and thats just a single game

Re: It's time for women to play in the ATP

well... maybe allow the women to win on conditions that she plays only in the service boxes, and the men have to serve underhanded maybe... :retard:

But then women wouldn't win tournaments anymore. It wouldn't be fair.

I think you made this post 2 weeks to late, you would had an automatic WC into the Arseclown tournament.

I dont think she could of taken a game off them. They would just move her from side to side and her all powerfull stroke would be nothing in the mens game...
