She’s a Man, Man, Well, Not Really, But Once, Sorta


sarahgronetGerman tennis player Sarah Gronert has been finding it difficult to gain entry into the professional ranks and has been under intense scrutiny because she was born a hermaphrodite with both male and female genitalia. Despite being medically certified as a female, other players and coaches have very strong feelings about the matter.

One opposing coach had this to say:

There is no girl who can hit serves like that, not even Venus Williams. When I heard her story, I was in shock. I don’t know if it’s fair that she can compete or not. She does have an advantage, but if this is what the WTA have decided, they probably know best. If she begins to play continuously, within six months she will be within the Top 50. This cannot be. This is not a woman, it’s a man. She does not have the power of a woman and no woman has such a technique. She serves like a man. It’s very strange.

I for one welcome Gronert to the professional tennis ranks. Let her play, tennis is boring these days if Ana Ivanovic isn’t playing anyways, why not spice it up a bit?
