22 year old German tennis player Sarah Gronert has stirred up some controversy due to her gender; she was born with both male and female genitalia, but after undergoing surgery to remove her male genitalia, she’s medically certified as female.

Having won two of the nine tournaments she’s entered in the last three years, Sarah Gronert is poised to possibly become one of the top female tennis stars. But many feel she has an unfair advantage due to her genetic condition, even her coach commenting how she doesn’t serve like a woman.

Gender controversy in sports is nothing new. Renee Richards is a former pro tennis player who had a sex change operation, numerous complaints have surfaced about transexual cyclist Michelle Dumaresq and there have been at least seven cases of Olympic gender benders incidents.
