      I saw Mac in an exhibition not long ago and he was still rifling off serves.

      She'd have no chance returning the backhand from the ad court.

      At her best, she still wouldn’t be in the top 200, er, top 350 men.

      1998: Karsten Braasch vs. the Williams sistersEdit
      Another event dubbed a "Battle of the Sexes" took place during the 1998 Australian Open[52] between Karsten Braasch and the Williams sisters. Venusand Serena Williams had claimed that they could beat any male player ranked outside the world's top 200, so Braasch, then ranked 203rd, challenged them both. Braasch was described by one journalist as "a man whose training regime centered around a pack of cigarettes and more than a couple bottles of ice cold lager".[53][52] The matches took place on court number 12 in Melbourne Park,[54] after Braasch had finished a round of golf and two shandies. He first took on Serena and after leading 5–0, beat her 6–1. Venus then walked on court and again Braasch was victorious, this time winning 6–2.[55] Braasch said afterwards, "500 and above, no chance". He added that he had played like someone ranked 600th in order to keep the game "fun".[56] Braasch said the big difference was that men can chase down shots much easier, and that men put spin on the ball that the women can't handle. The Williams sisters adjusted their claim to beating men outside the top 350.[52]

        Given some of the gender neutrality initiatives underway in the new America, I think this would be a good time for this match.
        All people with fully functioning brains know that Mac would clobber her but I would like to see it and the follow up hand wringing and excuse making that would occur from the folks that refuse to accept that humans come in two separate genders.

          Yeah, Mac wins; he's a little more manly.

            Have any transgenders demanded to play in the women's tournaments yet? Might be some easy money there.

                Wait ! A 200th ranked male tennis pro could identify himself as female and immediately earn a 50th ranking among the women. He-she will go from 5-6 game marathon sets to 3 game sets. He-she will be taller, quicker, faster & of more endurance. The traning may create a lucrative pro career = $ worth the change = more changes inspired?
