Maybe cos Martina was the first successful tennis star who was out, and maybe because she was so SUCCESSFUL (167 singles titles), and maybe cos she was more outspoken and didnt care about damaging her reputation/losing endorsements.
As for awareness re:momos sexuality i think its very well known (thanks to Hingis maybe) considering she never got anywhere near the media publicity martina got, and why should she? she hasnt even won a slam.
Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!
