Good With Balls on the Court, Not off

Lesbians aren’t exactly new to women’s tennis (Hi, Martina!) but it’s still nice to see another one take the torch and carry it on. Lesbian Amelie Mauresmo of France beat Belgian Justine Henin-Hardenne in the Australian Open Women’s Final.

“It’s been such a long time, and yet I still don’t know what to say,” Mauresmo said. “All the people that still believed in me, after seven years – it’s a long time.

“Not only myself, but people who’re working with me, believed me and pushed me, even when I was down. Maybe we found the way, maybe we’ll try to keep going.”

With so many lesbians dominating the world of tennis, you gotta’ wonder why they’re so damn good at tearing up the turf? Maybe it has to do with all those years in high school they spent swatting those other balls away.
