Here her bio form wikipedia - read the bold at the bottom!

Svetlana Aleksandrovna Kuznetsova (Russian: Светла́на Кузнецо́ва; born June 27, 1985) is a Russian professional tennis player.

Kuznetsova was born in St. Petersburg, Russia. Her father Alexandr Kuznetsov is a cycling coach who has coached to success five Olympic and world champions. Her father's protégés include her mother, Galina Tsareva, a six-time world champion and holder of 20 world records, and Svetlana’s brother, Nikolai Kuznetsov, a silver medallist at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. Kuznetsova also tried out cycling in her early years, but it bored her. She focused on tennis instead and was sent to Spain when she was 15 years old, for better training and coaching.

Kuznetsova plays mainly from the baseline, is a very good mover on court and over the years has perfected a heavy and accurate forehand that troubles her opponents greatly.

She won her first Grand Slam title in the 2004 US Open, where she defeated countrywoman Elena Dementieva in straight sets in an all-Russian final (the second in history after Myskina-Dementieva at the French Open of the same year).

Kuznetsova is also a very active doubles player and as of January, 2005 ranks third in the doubles rankings. Her second Grand Slam title came at the 2005 Australian Open's women's doubles event, where she teamed with Australia's Alicia Molik and defeated Americans Lindsay Davenport and Corina Morariu in the final. She reached five other Grand Slam doubles finals, with Martina Navratilova, Elena Likhovtseva and Amelie Mauresmo as her partners.

A year after her first Grand Slam victory, Kuznetsova became the first woman during the Open Era to lose in the first round as a defending women's champion at the 2005 US Open. She was involved in a doping scandal and was accused of taking efedrine but as the test was taken during unofficial competition the case was never investigated. Kuznetsova is a proud lesbian, one more in the growing list of openly lesbian players on the WTA Tour.

If you dont, I seriously get gay vibes from her and there has been lots of speculation. None of these reasons are proof but who knows.

Wikipedia is a bit dodgey as it lets anyone contribute to the website. When did she come out?

haha no i dont know anything that's why im asking...it's just that sveta has gay kinda written all over her. I would be more surprised if she turned up with a bf or something. I dunno I guess like what marmite said...strong gay vibes...:shrug:

I guess I just don't have these strong gay vibes/radar :shrug:
I had two acquaintances last year (one gay, one lesbian) and I had no idea about their sexual preference till a couple of weeks before I left (after eight-nine months) :haha:

Since the last time she touched a man which was NEVER.
Seriously she's probably told everyone she's gay but I can barely understand anything she says anyway so i wouldn't be surprised if she did and they didn't hear her.

Plus the girl has partner with two openly gay women.
Even Groenefeld got the hint. One gay doubles partner is fine. Two and the rest of the women's tour is going to start wondering. Either she's really open to the idea of homosexuality or she's really open to the idea of homosexuality. ;)

Wikipedia, for those who don't know, is written by anyone who wishes to contribute to the entry and is constantly being revised and edited by anyone else who wants to. While there is a lot a good stuff on that site, it is also sometimes flat out wrong. To use this source as "proof" of someone's publicly stated sexual orientation is either extremely naive or intentionally deceptive.

Totally agree and whoever wrote that sentence did the same thing for a few WTA players using the exact same wording......the word is totally not reliable....

Good Partnership lets hope they do well in the majors...and do win some titles.....lgood Luck Ame and Sveta....

If both Amelie and Svetlana were discreet and they both came out at the same time, I would be more surprised about Amelie.

Good luck to them. They did well at Wimbledon so lets see if they can go further and take some titles.

Awesome pairing but why all of the sudden Amelie wants to play doubles on regular basis?

If you like Svetlana Kuznetsova then you should like her because she is a good tennis player. I hope Kuznetsova had a good year in 2006. Come on Svetlana!

I think its great that they're back playing doubles. I saw them a good few times at Wimbledon this year, they were a very good combination and were always smiling, laughing and having fun on court. Hope they have loads of success together and that Svetlana has a great 06.

They did really well together at Wimby this year, so I wouldn't be surprised. Though, like Linnie said, I doubt Amelie will play doubles much beyond the Slams and Fed Cup.

How can someone be considered "openly gay" if they aren't actually open about it?
