Women and Angle Shots

I wonder if others have the same experience I have when playing against women.

They seems to hit balls with more difficult angles. I wonder if this might be due to some anatomical reason, or if they have learned that doing so is a way to gain an advantage, and as a tactic to strengthen their game. When I ask my female opponents about their angled shots it seems that they are not so aware of my experiences playing against them.

Have you noticed this possible phenomenon?

Hi Gary,

The top women in the world hit the ball pretty hard but compared to the top men it isn’t as fast.  Therefore they do tend to utilise the angles more to win points.
