Do Their Rackets Give Out?

When I was watching the tennis match last night between Serena and Maria, I got to thinking. No, not about why I was watching tennis in the first place. About why women do not play a best of 5 set match like the men. Think of how many more games of tennis this would add up to over a period of months to years that the men are playing than the women. If anything, it should be the other way around. Women's tennis is much more interesting to watch than men's, so the men should play a best of 3 sets and get off the court. Let the women play a best of 5 sets match. And why don't other women athletes wear uniforms like women tennis players? You know, short skirts and dresses for women's softball, women's volleyball, women's golf, women's basketball, women's soccer, women's track and field. It would bring a touch of class to women's sports and might get more viewers.
