She said, "And it would be nice if everybody could just accept that it's not a choice, this is who you are. You would never, ever choose this, choose to be gay. It's such a difficult thing to deal with and coming out to people and talking about it, and coming out to your family."
In the same interview she added, "But I don't hide who I am any more. Everyone in the tennis world pretty much knows who's gay and who's not; the only reason I would like it spoken about publicly more is that I wish everybody would realize that, 'See all those people you admire? Out of 10 of them, four are gay, and I just want you to know that your child can still idolize them'."
