Why People Think Pro Tennis Star Fabien Reboul Just Came Out

Fabien Reboul gay kiss

"I did not fall in love with you, your love pushed me to it."

If you let a few tweets tell it, pro tennis player Fabien Reboul has come out. The notion comes from a photo that Reboul posted to Instagram Stories.

Reboul, who is currently ranked 54th in the doubles world ranking (a career high), posted a photo of himself kissing fellow French player Maxence Broville. On top of the image, the Association of Tennis Professionals player, who played at Wimbledon for the first time this July, wrote: "I did not fall in love with you, your love pushed me to it."

The two are wearing their kits from the Slade Toulousain Tennis Club that they are both a part of, complete with blazers, button-down shirts, and khakis. Broville reposted the image to his Instagram stories with an emoji featuring hands making a heart.

In addition, in a carousel of images posted today, Broville also posted an image of the pair seemingly before or after the kiss, looking into each other's eyes.

Neither player has posted anything about the photos to confirm whether they were in earnest or jest. If they were to confirm their relationship, they would be the ATP's first gay couple.

It could very well be a joke. Littered over their Instagram accounts is the standard fake thirst comments that teammates often indulge in.

This comes after increased LGBTQ+ presence across a variety of sports including hockey, American football, soccer, and more. Stars like soccer player Josh Cavallo, American football player Carl Nassib, pro basketball player Isaac Humphries, and the pro drag racer Travis Shumake, have all opened up about their sexuality.
