I dont think that's it. Lots of women have talked about going five sets and have said that it being physically demanding doesnt really have anything to do with it. I think they could cope with the physical demands fine.

It was always predictable each year to watch Henman fail in the semis.
How many British papers have you read in order to form that opinion? You're way off the mark and there's no shame in losing to the likes of Nadal at Wimbledon, and Murray has often played some of his best tennis at Wimbledon and has come back from 2 sets down before. Here's some examples of post-Murray elimination reaction:

etc...

As for Henman, he was never good enough to get beyond the semi's, bar 2001 where he probably would've reached the finals without the rain delays.

Serena on beast mode today on her serve. Crazy shit. Think she got up to 24 Aces in just 2 sets. She was even hitting them off her 2nd serve. Hard to see anyone beating her at Wimbledon when she's playing like that. Nobody on the womens tour that comes close to her power. Can't see Radwanska beating her sadly. She's been playing doubles every other day too along with her singles run.

As for why women don't play 5 sets I think some but not all of it has to do with scheduling for these grand slams. When Mens matches go 5 sets and there's delays it causes enough of a headache but you'd need even more time if the womens draw were best of 5 sets too. Plus the women aren't physically as strong is true too. I'm sure they could play a 5 set match but probably not a tournament full of them. I doubt there'd be the same level of interest in womens tennis either if they were playing 5 sets.

I was joking! In this day & age they're far more able to compete for a longer period of time. Their conditioning is so much better now than it was 10 years ago. I'm sure they could go five sets. Personally I'd love to see the likes of Kirilenko on court for five hour matches!

I doubt a high quality would hold up throughout the five sets.

I don't think the women are that inferior as far as stamina goes. But I think their style of play would make it much harder on them. Most men are better at getting quick points. That's what makes the 5-setters manageable for men.

I have to admit, it would be fun to see how Caroline Wozniacki would do in 5-sets. She looks fit enough to just grind everybody out.

Maybe they should stick to three sets and make grand slam finals five sets or something. That would be interesting.

Go away you racist! Why couldn't they stink up Roland Garros all the time instead!

Women need to play 5 sets if don't want their equal pay to be a joke.
