Serena is about to get bounced from the US Open. I think. By Tsvetana Pironkova a 5’11” Bulgarian.
As with the men, women’s professional tennis is now all about power. Everyone is tall and hella strong like Pironkova.
As the game speeds up, people of average height are being squeezed out.
A similar phenomenon is happening in men’s professional golf. Most of the top players are hitting bombs off the tee.
Power’s alright, but I miss drop shots, spin serves, and super long rallies. And watching bombers hit driver-short iron into par fives gets old fast.
And get off my yard!
Postscript—Never count Serena out until the final point.
