A hot button topic in the U.S. this month has been the gay athlete. Since NBA journeyman Jason Collins came out in a recent issue of Sports Illustrated, many sporting stars have been asked about the possibility of gays in their sport. Roger Federer today said gay players are not an issue in tennis and in fact he doesn’t know if there even are any playing on the tour at the moment.
“I don’t think problem to be honest,” Federer said today in Rome. “We are relaxed and don’t play team sport and mix a lot – not with the girls but with the guys and we’re very open. What would happen in this event.
“I don’t know if there is anyone. I haven’t heard about anyone.”
