Sarah Gronert (current #700) was born as hermaphrodite. She had both, male and feminine genitals however, at the age of 19, 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. 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.
Some experts believe she could be able to reach Top 100.
People shouldn't make fun of her. It's not her fault to be born like this.
I hope she keeps on playing!
