That makes more sense, because it's not like she didn't fight in her matches with players like Graf, Seles, and Nav.

What it is more sad is to see Matt Cronin making this headline out of what she said, she was talking about tournament closing ceremonies, not to avoid talking to the press Oh well. Journalism

Ummm...ok Gabriela. Guess not everyone is cut out for all that comes with being a champion. I'd hate to have heard that if I were a fan of hers.

I wonder what posters who were her fan then now think about this statement.
I don't feel let down or anything that's for sure. The thing you have to remember is that this was the late 1980s. We only got to see a handful of tournaments a year on TV. Here in the UK it was Wimbledon, Eastbourne and the finals and perhaps semi-finals of the French Open. So it's not like we were glued to the TV every week rooting for her and suffering when she lost.

Had I have known at the time then I like to think I'd have sympathised and still rooted for her.

It's sad that a young player of such wonderful talent had to struggle with these issues. These days the WTA gives a lot more support to young players, including training in how to handle the media and mentoring from ex players. That can only be a good thing.

I really like her. The days of tennis players being real stars and household names, well apart from Serena, have long gone.
