Wom점보카지노en want more ashes test matches than men, which may be because they’ve had men’s matches with more women. (At least that’s how most of it goes.) At least four of the top 15 matches from the women’s matches in the United States in 2013 were on the men’s circuit.

The results suggest the numbers are getting skewed. A 2011 report by the National Women’s Soccer League estimated that roughly 80% of women’s matches last at least two hours, compared to a 2007 estimate of 77%. There’s also the공주출장샵 공주안마 matter of travel: In the 2013 Women’s World Cup, the top five countries by number of days in travel time were: Brazil with 52 days, Australia with 33 days, New Zealand with 30 days, and England with 24 days.

“The biggest [overlooked factor] was travel,” says John Coppinger, a sports economist at Indiana University who conducted his own analysis of the data and found that men’s travel was “about average in the top three countries.” It could be that teams that were focused on getting to the World Cup played the first-round matches in the best of shape, allowing them to sleep more and get some rest in between matches. But for the men, that could also just be a benefit, Coppinger says. “The teams that were really focused on playing, the guys, didn’t get to play a lot.”

The problem isn’t a lack of women competing, or a lack of training partners, but a lack of coaching, coaches and equipment, Coppinger says.

In 2013, the men’s national team ranked 18th, with just two men실시간 바카라 — Andy Murray and Michael Adams — competing in five World Cup matches, Coppinger estimates. This might be explained by the fact that the 2011 data focused on men who were at or near the peak of their careers in their respective countries. “The World Cup didn’t really have many men in peak training.” In the 2013 World Cup, there were no high-profile men, and this could just have been by design, he says.

The men’s game, in terms of its popularity and overall number of matches, is getting the attention it needs from the media, according to Coppin
