Yes, we must mention that there are women who 'do not' scream and grunt' while playing, so all respect
I don't ever compare women's sports to men's sports, that isn't fair at all, and if one doesn't like
women's sports so be it, but the quality of tennis by the women is very high, as well as golf and
other sports as well. They are women, they don't have the muscular definition of the men and can't
be expected to match them (parden the pun).
I don't watch women's ice hockey, although all of my daughters played it, (at the highest level) for
years, they were fine hockey players, but never as strong as men.
I was proud of their abilities, and they loved to play, but as soon as they finished playing, as
older teenagers, I didn't continue to watch the women, I like men's hockey at the highest level,
and thats about it for me.
They could defeat the boys teams till about the age of 14/15, then the difference in strength prevented
any further play.
They could 'however' compete with males in non contact hockey after that, and were very competetive,
and held their own.
The skating was the key.
My oldest daughter played in a men's hockey league, along with her dad, in campbell river, they even
had a picture and write up in the paper, as it was interesting to see them in a game together, and
very enjoyable. She was a good player on that team, non contact, and she was such a great skater
that she could manage herself in the game just fine.
womens sports at the highest level must be appreciated, they have come to the top of the heap, just
like the men, and the years and years of hard work and improvement, (and money) and dedication that
was put into the sport, (just like the men) brought them to the highest level.
It is degrading to read and hear men talk about the tennis players as though they are reading a playboy
magazine, and not know how to realize and respect their abilities, and how hard it was for them to reach their
goals, and those women are highly competetive, and couldn't care less about those particular men,( who
haven't a clue,) as they are battling in their sport as hard as any men do, and the men tennis players,
and other men athletes, would 'ALL' understand that.
Just stop the screaming.
