Re: Sad story: German Sarah Gronert considers retiring because............

I don't know if all of you guys got it: The original german article says that Sarah decided to live as a woman when she was 19 years old. ChrisCHoe badrepped and insulted me for posing the question why she decided that so late, saying she decided to be a woman when she was a kid. Thanks for that.

source: "Gronert entschloss sich im Alter von 19 Jahren, als Frau leben zu wollen."
translation: "Gronert decided to live as a woman at age 19."

I guess she had to figure out who she really was as a person?

How was she living and playing before that? She was playing competitive tennis since she was much younger, I assume? Did she play girls' or boys'?

yeah, that's obvious. I just wanted you guys to know that. People kept thinking, she was forced to be a girl when she was a young child.

I don't know how/if she played tournaments in her childhood. I guess no, because she's already 22 und just started to play tournaments.

It would be very surprising for someone to only start playing matches at age 22 (even 19), and be at this level.

You are right. I'm very sorry. Very dumb mistake of mine.

I will be sure to neutralise the bad rep with a good rep as soon as I am able.

.... then give him another good one for his troubles.


Anyhoo, there is more to this story than the simple theme reflected in this thread. I'd like to get a history on this player. Apparently nobody here knows anything about her, personally. But even that is surprising.. Germany is not that large a country and we have many European members. Still hoping for some better details.

Germany not that large? Well - maybe not compared to the US.

But it would be good to get the full story.

Unfornate. People can be (are?) so mean (evil?). I'm upset that people did that to her.

Next you'll be telling someone with depresoion to just pull themselves together.
