Sarah Gronert Gives New Meaning To The Term Mixed Doubles


“Well I’m not dumb but I can’t understand
Why she volleyed  like a woman and served like a man
Oh my Sarah Sa-Sa-Sa-Sa Sarah, Sa-Sa-Sa-Sa Sarah”

The lovely lass pictured to the left is Sarah Gronert, a tennis player from Germany currently embroiled in what you could say is “he said, she said” controversy. At issue, up until three years ago, she had both male and female genitalia. That’s right, Gronert is/was a hermaphrodite, yet the WTA has cleared her to compete against women who never had a penis – Amélie Mauresmo excluded, of course – the jury is still out on that one.

Even Christine Daniels f/k/a Mike Penner doesn’t know what to think about this one.

The Women’s Tennis Association has ruled there was ‘sufficient independent and verifiable evidence’ that Sarah Gronert was eligible to play against the world’s best woman players.

Under the association’s rules, the 22-year-old had to have ‘gender verification to determine sexual status’  after having her male genitalia removed three years ago.

In my opinion, I don’t see why she can’t compete with the ladies. She appears far more feminine than the Williams sisters ever have, and that’s keeping in mind that Gronert had balls and a cock for most of her life.

Sorry, A-Rod, you’re three years too late from meeting your dream, um, person, I guess.
