Tennis players raped?

In the U.S., at this time, a potential blockbuster case is brewing over the charges of a woman claiming to have been raped by basketball player, Kobe Bryant.

So I wondered, are there statuory rape laws outside of the U.S.?
Anna Kournikova was having sex with 28+ year old men between the ages of 16-18 and no one seemed to car, including her parents.

Kim Clijsters was doing it with Hewitt when she was 17 and not a single protest was brought.

In real life the sex partners of those girls would have been jailed.
Is there a hidden double standard for famous women, in that they are not considered rape victims as other girls in the America?

This book was written in 1991. I think the Eastern European top twenty veteran could be Manuela Maleeva who is from Bulgaria, she married her coach and became Swiss. The coach from her country could be Eric Van Harpen who is Swiss, and he trained Conchita who was a top ten player in 1991 and is a lesbian. Maybe I am wrong, but the book shows how common it is for older coaches to sleep with younger girls.
eric van harpen is neither swiss nor bulgarian, but dutch, if i'm not mistaken, so it can't be him.
