5 Reasons Why You Should Be Watching Women’s Tennis

When you think about watching sports on TV, you may not think to turn on a women’s tennis match, but you really should. Women’s tennis is one of the most popularly watched women’s sport. Here are five reasons why you SHOULD consider watching women’s tennis over any of the other sports:

  • Girl power

Compared to other female athletes, women tennis players earn more money, endorsements and TV face time. These women are well known within their sports and outside. Very few people can say that they have never heard of Serena Williams or her sister Venus.

  • Year-round competitions

No need to wait for (insert sport) season! Tennis is a year round sport and the athletes play in amazing locations like Melbourne, Paris, London and New York City.

  • Fashion

Every athlete and team has a uniform and some are nicer than others, but with tennis as long as you follow the dress code you are free to express your style! From dresses and skirts to short sleeves and tank tops, these women are styling.

  • Physically and psychologically challenging 

These athletes need endurance and power behind their swing, but they also need to be able to control their emotions throughout the entire match. Each tennis player will go through ups and downs while playing, but they need to be able to start fresh with every serve to give it all they got.

  • The rivalries are long and fierce

Since these athletes can play for many years, the rivalries can continue on for awhile. Some of the biggest names in the sports have to compete against each other quite a bit and those tensions build up. The top three athletes, Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka, all have some bad blood when they match up.

Don’t just take my word for it, watch a women’s tennis match and see how awesome the athletes really are. You won’t regret it.
