What does wearing tank tops have to do with being gay? I wear them all the time and I am not gay. Why do you say his straps are really thin? I don't think Mark is gay.

Please, he's gay now because he wears tank tops? Talk about stereotyping...No, it's not the tank tops. It's the botched bleach job that he shared with the world a couple years ago, that gave it away.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I saw that limp wrist-waving you described at the Australian Open this year, after he had made some particularly feeble unforced error during one of his early round matches. But somehow I suspect that was an ironic gesture mocking his own weakness on the shot he had just played, not some kind of signal that he was about to come out of the closet.

With the kind of lifestyle he has lead, you can hardly call Philippoussis gay - he's been renowned as a playboy, Agassi once said "I can't respect anyone who owns a yellow Ferrari" and he's often been more interested in women, partying and living the high life than he has been playing his tennis. Also, I may be using some stereotypical ideas of sexuality here, but I doubt that a gay player would have the kind of explosive power game that the Scud possesses.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

I saw that too. He's probably acting out his thought of: Gosh, I played like a sissy!

This I don't agree. Just don't think sexuality has anything to do with strength and power, that's all.

Yes, I see what you're saying... I suppose what I mean is that very few people no matter what their sexuality would have the kind of game that Philippoussis has - huge risk-taking shots, breathtaking winners and sloppy unforced errors, and gigantic serving on both first and second serves. I don't mean to suggest that a gay player couldn't have explosive power in their game, just that only Philippoussis could have that extreme level and that unique style of play, it's a part of his personality I guess.

I've seen his ao matches too and it doesn't make him look gay, but if you think your weird arguements are true and believe he's gay do so.

SINCE THERE'S NO TENNIS ACTION I WENT FOR TONGUE ACTION
