Re: Sad story: German Sarah Gronert considers retiring because............
Sarah Gronert (current #700) was born as hermaphrodite. She had both, male and feminine genitals but she decided to live as a woman and later she made a gynecological certificate which confirms her female gender. But many people started gossiping about her and this year at a dutch tournament russian players congratulated her to her first "ATP" points. Some experts believe she would be able to break top 100 but she had a very difficult childhood and the bashings increased proportional to her sucess in the last months. Now she considers retiring and still doesn't know if she wants to keep playing tennis.
People shouldn't make fun of her. It's not her fault to be born like this.
I hope she keeps on playing!
I hope she sticks around.
How come it's known that she was born a hermaphrodite anyway ?
Some people will say anything to gain an advantage and those players who made her feel bad should be ashamed of themselves.
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.
