There is a reason why they aren't doing that, and it has to do with their public image. Heck, some of them probably haven't come out to their parents.

So, what you are effectively doing is spreading rumors and outing people who don't want be outed. It is simply none of your business to find out if these rumors are true or not.

This thread is no different than the PED one, and in a way it is even worse, because you are allowed to speculate about someone else's sexuality because of the way they dress, act. etc..
It is quite different. if you turn out to be gay you don't get banned from the sport, you don't get stripped from your titles and you are not to give back all the money you have earned after you were caught with PED. That is the difference. One is a crime and the other ... just gossips.
Otherwise I am fully with you on the main point - It is simply nobody's business if one is gay or b or whatever if they don't harm anyone.

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better

Not so sure about that these days...

Fact is that players act much more "calculated" than we think. The top players all have their consultants or PR managers. And since in most countries an open-minded person is respected, it could be an advantage in the public for a heterosexuell player to be seen with a gay player - maybe play doubles with him etc. Most people would appreciate that as a nice character and the hetero play could gain respect.

The risk that people think you are gay yourself because you play doubles with an openly gay player is smaller than 20 years ago because homosexuality is not segregate anymore.

Then again.. this isn't very surprising, he's Spanish. Spain is one of the most gay friendly countries in Europe. I'm in love with Spain. They don't give a damn who people f*ck (as long as it's consenting adults of course), and gay people have the same rights as straight people. They have a high acceptance of gay people in the Spanish society. Other countries have something to learn from Spain!

Re: The gay male player speculatron

I have a feeling that one top player is gay. It's just a vibe I get from him. I have really no reason to think so, and there's not any proof.. like I said, just my gaydar and something is kinda off when it comes to his relationship to his girlfriend. He never seems close to her, yet he seems especially close to other male players, even go on vacation with them instead of his girlfriend. I don't know.. I could be way off, it's just a feeling I get about him.

I also suspect a journeyman of being gay, and another player who my Spanish friend is insisting is gay.

That's all I can come up with. I know people say Gasquet is gay, and he could be.. but I kinda doubt it.

So, the top player should be Nxdal I'm so curious about the journeyman...
Gasquet is so straight, I never think he's gay.

Yes, it's Nadal. Like I said.. this is pure speculation. I may be way off. He just seems A LOT closer to his male friends than to his own girlfriend, and something is so "off" with that relationship. It's hard to explain, but in pics they don't have much chemistry, and sometimes I get the feeling that it's all played up for the paparazzi. I mean.. it is possible that they have been together for so long that they just are not that much in love anymore, or maybe they're just more friends today, but still together out of convenience. But that doesn't really explain Nadal's close relationship to other guys. He also looks extremely awkward and uncomfortable around girls in general. He has done some steamy adverts in just his underwear with so many hot women.. yet I don't feel an ounce of chemistry. Something is "lacking". Maybe it's because he's gay? It's a possibility. I don't know.. I can't figure him out. He could be bi instead though, not necessarily gay, but bi.

Nice username you have...did you abandon Nadal's fanbase when you "found out" he's gay?

Monaco - Del Potro - Nadal - Wawrinka - Robredo - Simon - Berdych - Dimitrov - Chardy

No. I abandoned him when he started to suck. It wasn't even the fact that he lost.. it was the WAY he lost that got on my nerves. I'm just so over it. I love gay guys, I'm bi myself. I don't have anything against gay people, obviously.. I support LGBT rights.

And how do you know? Have you been fucking him? Trust me, there's been speculation surrounding his sexuality for years, especially on gay forums. No, the other Spanish player (not high ranked) has been pretty much confirmed. I've seen a pic of him and his boyfriend, and my Spanish friend confirmed it too.

So can you tell us who this guy is? I hope Ramos or GGL or Andujar(I'm sure he has GF, but still...)
