It's still not as accepted among WTA fans. Look at how Sharapova fans react at the question of Martha being a lesbian. We'll have to wait to see how the WTA fans handle a coming out story from someone that nobody expected to be a lesbian.

We will accept a gay ATP star. We are just waiting for you to dominate the tour as the only male member of the LOB Reserves.

Barber is correct pretty hard to have a relationship with someone when you hardly see the other person. Yes, there is long distance romance but Nadal is on the road on the ATP Tour for 11 months in the year. Second, Barber pointed out correctly that Uncle Toni created the girlfriend to give Nadal a heterosexual image to deflect rumours about his sexuality. Three, Barber once again is correct when she points out the girlfriend shows up for grand slam semifinals and finals and occassional ATP events. The girlfriend is clearly a beard there is no relationship between her and Nadal she is just present to give Nadal an illusion of appearing straight.
Investigative journalism?! Gurl, please!!!

She had an interview with him, and that's it. Her specialty is doing hatchet jobs on her interviewees, and she's a miserable old bitch. Nadal was bored and completely uninterested in doing the interview.

You're really just reaching here, gurl. I love Nadal (my favorite male player), and I think he's an incredible champion. I'd be thrilled if he were gay, but it's very likely not the case. You're ignoring all the contrary evidence.

Again--if you want to discuss differences in attitudes about homosexuality in the WTA and the ATP, that's one thing.

But if this thread veers off into idle, pointless speculation about player's personal lives I will close it. There is already an entire thread in nontennis for that.

Not all of us are that way. I wouldn't be surprised if she was bisexual (she clearly digs guys) but it doesn't matter to me either way. At the very worst it would make my fantasy of her and Amber Heard dating more realistic

What a load of shit.

Yep, the only reason lesbians never had to break the law to be in a relationship is because the lawmakers were sexists who didn't see how sex could happen without a penis. Therefore lesbians didn't exist .

I think she's straight as well but she gives off quite a lot of lesbian vibes. Maybe it's just her ice queen demeanor but I wouldn't be surprised if Chelsea Handler was going down on her this very second trying to suck the youth out of her cooch.

I just think she comes off as a flirtatious person in general. Some of my friends are like that. I remember when Jason Kennedy ( )interviewed her at the ESPYs there was a little spark between them, even though she towered above him . And Maria was giving bedroom eyes to some middle aged lady who was interviewing her recently

I wish Andy was a raging homosexual . Oh well, we will just have to turn him.

Every time this question has come up here it's been pretty disappointing. Not because I care or I believe she is a lesbian but seeing how several people on here, who are her fans, who are gay themselves are so bothered by the possibility. Seeing how these relatively open minded, not homophobic people react, it's hard to believe the average fan would like the idea.

This thread has veered into speculation about player's personal affairs. While actual news about boyfriends, girlfriends, marriages, births and breakups are suitable for GM, rumor, guesses and innuendo are not.

You may carry one such discussions here: Is Jan Michael Gambill gay? if you have a mind to do so.
