I didn't know about Raymond and Stubbs either. I was wondering how everyone knows they are partners off court?:confused:

Welcome to the real world, where they reckon that approximately 1 in 10 of us are gay. Incredibly, that includes the odd famous person, sportsman/woman and politician.

ooops that is what i meant.

& it just never crossed my mind that those two were.

i live in the real world i just don't know which tennis players r lesbians that's it & i certainly mean didn't mean to offend any1 like i said before.

Hey, i'm not offended. Its just that not all lesbians look like prison warders, and not all gay men look like characters from Village People.

because nobody knows, as far as I know the only activeplayers who came out are amelie and conchita and some even have doubts about the last, but I am sure I saw a quote from her where she said something about it!

In fact there was only 1 gayman in the Village People! They told that on tv last year!

Rebecca; Well, admittedly all of my friends do*, but I have seen some really dull gay men too, who could have passed for estate agents.

Tinkerbell; there are conspiracy theories here about just about everyone. If you do searches you'll see that most people have been suspected at some stage. And every attractive ATP player (plus Andy roddick) is frequently accused of it too.



*that bit wasnt actually true.

I don't think Conchita has ever come out, because she has never said anything about her private life.

What's wrong with being a "fag" as you call it?

But I think it is silly to speculate about them - if they want to come out they will (if they even are gay)!

DOnt you people know that Lesbians are invisible! There are no lesbians! They're just women who really really really really like spending time together! Cant two women be super duper califragilicoiusepealladocious close without being called a lesbian!

My goodness can't two women hold hands, kiss, hug, make out and roll around the bed naked without being called a lesbian! They're just playful.

Most of it is just rumours... But Amelie and Conchita are probably the highest profile lesbians on the tour. Conchita has been with Tarabini for a while - but think they have split up.

Other include, Lisa, Rennae, Danillidou, Arendt, Hrdlickova... I hadn't heard aboyt Garbin and Husarova though - they do share a coach - so maybe thats all it is...

On the men's side - no one has been out since the legendary Bill Tilden in the 1920's who was later jailed. There is lots of rumours about Pete Sampras, Jim Courier, Gambill and Roddick - but hard to say.... Also has always been rumours that both Andre and Steffi are bisexual - was rumours that Steffi was with Stubbs and Gorrachategui in the past...

Other famous ones in days gone by include Martina Nav, Gigi Ferandez, Wendy Turnbull, Virginia Wade, Hana Mandlickova, Jana Novotna, Billie-Jean King, Rosie Casals, Betty Stove...

You mean the guy that was Valerie Simpson of Ashford and Simpson's brother? Wasn't he the only black guy in the group or was she married to one of the other guys. I thought the black guy was flat out gay. I thought I remembered a story about him being gay. If she was married to him, :o

So the speculations about why Lisa and Rennae split up on court and maybe off could be confirmed. In the Sanex city of hope fundraiser pictures Rennae is there with Arendt.

I wouldn't classify these speculations as anything approaching libel. We are simply making some more or, frequently, less educated guesses about their sexuality. Sure, it's a little more meaty than debating whether or not a given player might be carnivorous, vegetarian, or vegan. But we're not accusing anyone of being an axe-murderer or a fan of the Rolling Stones.

However, we should be careful not to present something as fact when it's merely our own personal guess based on something as vague as intuition.
