This is a good one, battle of sexes.





I am posting this since Jimbo admitted the other day he had a million dollar bet riding on this EXO!

Good match, except Jimmy was obviously superior to Martina - despite what WTA fans say. He racked up tons of serving faults as expected, but he moves too well and hits passing shots too accurate for Martina. I don't really see battle of sexes being positive for female players, because their performance when compared apple to apple would raise the question if their tennis ability would deserve as much fan participation.

ricky - this wasn't the first, wasn't the last, didn't surprise anyone, wasn't kept secret either. yet people still enjoy watching the WTA.

Just for the record, can you show me where any WTA fans said he wasn't superior to her? Take your time now... Wink
