Agree, but it's old enough to know when you've got lucky in the lottery of life, and to know that you should make the most of your talents - a bit like choosing to go to university if you've got academic talent; you might not want to, but are mature enough to know the rewards are worth it. Anyway, like I said, if she can't be bothered, it's her loss and she'll regret it when she's 25!


Interesting to read this thread from the start. Well, she's 25 now, I wonder what she thinks of any of it.

She has never won a maindraw WTA singles match, but has won 1 round at Wimbldedon in singles, in on a MDWC, of which she has received a number over the years. Of late though, she's on a big losing streak, her ranking sinking to outside top 300, without injury or anything else seeming to account for the slide.


Maybe this thread in is one to be moved to the individual player thread section.

Tara was at 345 in 01/16 and got inside 300, so she obviously has the ability to climb - hoping it's just right place right time. I'm not writing her off.

I think you're overlooking Nottingham last year, which was and is a WTA event. She won three rounds of qualifying to get to the main draw before beating Donna Vekic in the first round and Christina McHale in the second before falling to Saisai Zheng in the QF.

She also won a round at Birmingham in 2012, beating Benesova in the first round proper.

A wonderful, open, warm and interesting article on Tara, Conny, and the state of the LGBT community in tennis today. If anyone has difficulty accessing it, I can provide more of the article here.

A timely and encouraging article. It's funny how they talk about how it took a while to get used to playing doubles with each other, describing probably exactly what male/female married couples who've tried to play mixed doubles feel when they play together too.

After Tara's excellent run this week (and world famous Lazarus moment), I see that she has just launched a business, along with Hayley Carter, that provides a US college tennis programme recruitment service (rather similar to Sarah Borwell's?)

Good luck to her

A moving statement from Tara:


"My grandad and my grandma are my absolute heros. Not only are they constantly supportive of my tennis, they have never batted an eyelid to my sexuality. With #pride month quickly approaching an end, Id like to take this opportunity to encourage all parents and family members to be open to all sexualities and choices of their child or at least hear them out. Without this support from my family, I would not be here today. I always struggled with who I was when I was younger, I tried to hide it, I struggled with depression, I lied. It wasnt until my grandma sat me down one day and told me that whomever I love, whatever gender, I would always be loved by her. With this message I vowed to be open and try to help others who perhaps werent sure with who they are and were not as lucky as me to have a support system. If youre reading this and wondering why Ive decided posted this, its because if this story can help just one person come out and be themselves then its worth it. If you ever feel alone, youre not. Speak up #pridemonth #sexuality #LGBQT #speakup"

Yes, it is an amazing statement. A truly wonderful grandmother. Tara's a gutsy person, wish she'd done a little more, but I guess she's done what she could. I'm sorry she's not in the qualifiers next week.

Amen. No matter how receptive you suspect the audience might be its never easy.
