View Full Version : Why are all the lesbians on tour serve and volleyers?

Jan 8th, 2008, 08:03 PM
All the "self-identified" lesbians on tour are good grass court players and serve and volleyers: Mauresmo, Stubbs, Raymond etc. From the past: Navratilova etc. Only exception I can think of is Kuzzie but she is not a lesbian for sure.

Is there a reason or connection?

Edit: Novotna is another one.

I thought it was the one-handed backhand that meant the player was a lesbian (with the exception of Steffi)?It's probably all the high-levels of testosterone in lesbians' systems that make them aggressive and want to be men. They can't be men, so they can try to play like one.

i think there's definitely a correlation there somewhere. perhaps Martina N motivated/inspired some lesbians to adopt her game-style, hence Helena Sukova, Hana Mandlikova and Jana Novotna?
one-handers seems to be an important link more than serve-volley: Gabriela Sabatini, Gigi Fernandez, Conchita Martinez, Amelie Mauresmo, Justine Henin, Rennae Stubbs, Ines Gorrochategui, Patricia Tarabini, Jana Novotna, Hana Mandlikova, Helena Sukova, Lisa Raymond, Nathalie Tauziat..........and these are just post-1985 players. Of course, most of these have not publicly self-identified as lesbian, just rumour-based.

Also with the rise of power players like Davenport, 2Williams, Seles, Gay men thought they could match of their straight opponent with a strong 2 handed backhands like these power players does.

Are you being serious here? If so, you need some urgent help... do you really think gay men do things to feel feminine as a general rule? If anything a majority of gay men (especially in a sporting environment) will go out of their way to prove their masculinity... that's still a bad generalisation, but it's at least getting close to accuracy. What depressing world of TV-movie cliche do you inhabit? Are you really trying to suggest that gay men are inherently weaker than straight men and thus have to think up ways to match their straight adversaries in the power departments? You might not have a very clear understanding of what those dastardly gays are all about, but surely you're aware that they are from the same species and have the same basic physical mechanics and the same potentials of strength and endurance that straight men have?

So, by this logic Francesca Schiavone is NOT a lesbian? Ooooooooooooooookay.

francesca is not a lesbian, even though she looks like one... i remember there was a video in the net a few years ago in her match against Mary Pierce at moscow tier I final (good old days), that she made a sexual innuendo with her partner, that was a man! but it was in italian i guess...

I have lesbian friends who make sexual innuendos with me, so that doesn't prove anything.

Not that I give a crap about what's none of my bidness anyway.

(Though there are a number of WTA players who, if they wished to make their sexual preferences my bidness, I would be more than happy to accommodate).

I think its for the same reason as most Gays on ATP on the other hand uses two handed backhand.

Tell this Gasquet...! he would be furious

Why so many people have a prejudice that lesbians are not good looking?
How many straight men and women are good looking anyway?

I love this thread, it's a classic. More pics please!

But, I do think the days of the lesbian S&V is largely on the way due to the changes in rackets. It's just too difficult to keep charging the net with all these hetero girls banging away with their powerful rackets from the baseline. So the style is a dying breed ... BUT they still S&V in doubles so there are some rare specimens still to be found on the back courts. ;):lol::tape:

What kind of tension have you got on your racket these days. :lol:


No doubt the greatest S&V of recent times is GB's Tim Henman. :worship:

... and they don't come any more manly than that (so the rumour goes).

Wayn, you're such a BT fan:lol:

I worry for you :haha:

All the serve and volley players are fuck ugly and masculine. Like they have this aggressive thing inside them but don't have a dick. Just ask Chris Evert.

Yes. She married a gay guy. Hénin is very masculine.

Must be a dildo thing.


You are :weirdo:. And reported.

Sexual innnuendo? Can you elaborate? ;)

Awful generalisation. Goodbye.

Hardly a generalisation. I would say there are only very few exceptions, maybe Martinez-Sanchez.

May 8th, 2009, 10:34 AM
well.. Husarova, Savchuk, Schiavone, Kuznetsova .. they're not serve and volleyer

It would be more correct to say that almost all serve/volley players on the WTA tour are gay than to say that almost all gay WTA tour players play serve/volley.

Are you sure Savchuk and Kuz are gay?

May 8th, 2009, 10:36 AM
:weirdo:

I´m sure Mauresmo isn´t serve and volleying player, Stubbs and Raymond are serve-volleying because they are great doubles player, that´s all...and I haven´t any informations, that Savchuk is lesbian...not all masculine womens are lesbians

This question sounds like: "Why girls like pink colour?"
Are these threads really necessary???

Martinez-Sanchez has a gorgeous boyfriend, she's definitely not a lesbian.

I didnt think she was, I meant she was an exception to the rule that all serve/vollyers are lesbians. I know that wasnt exactly clear.

Well she is sort of channeling the lesbian look so many people may become confused.

I hated this thread the moment i saw it, but i couldnt resist.
I have to admit, I never noticed the commanality, BUT in my un-expert opinion, it probably has a lot to do with aggression.
Lesbians "tend" to have a lil penis envy, especially a certain faction of them, hence the in your face type of game they play!

I don't know if it was already said but C. Martinez was far from being a serve & volleyer...even though she won Wimbledon :p
