    Navratilova played in a sport which was usually played as an individual without much, if any, body contact.  Team sports with extensive body contact like basketball or football elicit a whole different set of feelings from other players and viewers.  That difference could easily account for the delay in someone playing a team contact sport coming out, but it does not detract from Navratilova's courageous step in the first place three decades ago.
