wow you guys are really up in arms about this. I guess if I was the WTA, I would be happy because a bad response is better than none at all. Not that I agree with the ideas expressed here by the WTA. It's just I am sure they didn't mean to offend, I think they meant to mock sterotypes, and add alittle flair to womens game by saying these gals are just as tough as the men. They aren't your average housewives, they have "girl power"

But they're making a satirical joke of stupid traditional female stereotypes. I don't think it's so horrible.

I agree Leo, but I am not a girl so I guess I am bias or perhaps I look at differently

It's not horrible. It's boring and predictable

It's just another boring wordplay advertisement. Lighten up.

It's quite funny. But I don't like women's tennis, so I don't really care anyway.

Maybe it would be better suited for the middle of the 20th century but not now :)

There is this confusion. They want to be 21st century personas, at the same time keep up with tradition. It's difficult to be both.

You can't stand on the wall. You have to jump to any one of the sides.

The question I'll be asking on all internet chat's with female players is: "Can you cook?" ;)
