I did not know about it
I was just reading this article on Nathalie Tauziat controversial book and came up with this
Tauziat on homosexuality and women's tennis
When the WTA was created and the women's pro circuit began, the proportion of homosexuals among the top 10 women players was considerable. The tendency has changed around with the passing of the years. Today, there must be only two homosexuals among the top 10 women.
The idea that we are all more or less that way is so ingrained that you always have to justify yourself. How many times have I felt this indelicate question in the look of people: are you or aren't you ?
I am not proud or sorry about it, but, no, I am not. The homosexual women do nothing to get noticed, but I do urge parents of very young players to make a good choice of the people to whom they entrust them.
I had one experience which served as a lesson. The coach of one young girl asked me to watch out for her in case she had any problems. I saw after a few days she was practising with a little group of homosexual players, one of whom I knew very well.
I told her: "Do not touch this girl. Do you understand ?" I never saw the girl with them again. She gave up her career and I learned later she had entered a sect and her parents had a lot of trouble getting her out!
Homosexuality does not shock me, but I am upset by a lack of discretion. I was shocked when Paris Match came out with a cover of Amelie Mauresmo and her friend Sylvie Bourdon, posed together like showbiz stars.
Imagine the trouble a young kid dreaming of becoming a tennis star might have with that. I approve of the step taken by the WTA, who asked Amelie and Sylvie to show their affection in a less demonstrative way. Amelie said recently that only one homosexual player had congratulated her for coming out, the others fearing she might publicly denounce them.
The proof is that, on one side or the other, solidarity is not the most widespread virtue on the circuit. It is every girl for herself and watch your image. For image is money and money is what the war is all about.'
