Next time Jennifer plays a Williams, Im supporting the Williams...

Ive well and truley had enough of Jennifer's bitchiness. When she first came back from all her problems I was well and truely on the bandwagon and enjoyed her fairytale comeback as much as the next person...

Ive cheered her on in many big time matches, including vs Justine at Wimbledon semis and US semi's, every one of her matches against Serena and Venus, it wasnt like a concious choice, but I just found myself cheering for Jen as the underdog...

I started having my doubts about Jen just after she had all her sucess and suddenly became really really bitchy on the court - some really classless displays of profanity - I just put it down to the extra pressure she was under.. Her interviews also started to sound really defensive...then came to the whole BJK episdoe where Monica, Meghan etc ALL sided with BJK and said Jennifer knew the rules etc before committing to Fed Cup....she lost points with me there...

But at the French and in her latest interview she has done her dash with me... Especially the bit about "I mean like, she has had her time"...when asked about Martina...

Jennifer is entitled to her opinion of course, just as Im entitled to support whoever I want on whatever basis I want...Given that the Williams girls have enough sense to show respect to the greatest player of all time, I am now scratching my head going "why the fuck was I ever supporting Jen"...She comes across to me as a precious, foul mouthed snappy cow these days..

It feels weird, but Im gonna be 100% in the corner of Serena if their QF happens...

where did all this come from?

jennifer is not the nice girl next door, not america's sweetheart, that was obvious from a while back. she stands up for herself, because she learned long ago, and in the hard way, that in the end she is the only one who will look after herself.

you may not agree with what she says and you are surely entitled to your opinion, but i will continue to cheer for players i like, and those i dont, i dont really have time to cheer AGAINST them. life is too short for negativity, wouldn't you agree?? after all, isnt it her bitchiness you hate so much? then why add to the negativity?? simply switch channels when she's playing, and the earth will have more good vibes.

and... jennifer capriati !!

This was fairly obvious to me when she was starting shit with Monica in 2001.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Ennis and Jack found something most people don't ever find in this life...true love, the deepest, purest, most beautiful thing in the universes. Ennis and Jack have TRUE LOVE. They are SOULMATES. They have a love so deep, so pure, so strong, that it transcends everything, it's eternal.

What about Daniela Hantuchova in Fed cup when she said to Slovakian Federation to give her more money or she's gonna lose her match?

Well every player has it's own +/-, as you, nobody's perfect but live isn't about 100%, I'm sure you'll find ++++++ in every player (surely, just try it) even if you don't like her.

Cheer for who you want, it's your right but don't mythologize players, the are obviously only humans.....

You only have to go to a tournament and sit around the practice courts to see that a good 50-60% of players have an ego bigger than the court. My opinions of Jennifer Capriati and Andy Roddick took a damn good knock after seeing them in the flesh, but at the end of the day it's the tennis I love and that is what I support. Having an ego and f-ing and blinding - lets face it, we all do it! And if we were multi-millionaires as a teenager and the focus of everyone's attention, who is to say we would turn out better!

Mirjana Lucic : Australian Open doubles champ and back in Top 100

Jelena Jankovic : US Open finalist 2008 and World No. 1

Jennifer Capriati : 3 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1

[center]Rafael Nadal : 10 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1 [/center]

sorry, but maybe, just mabye you ought to write the WHOLE quote??

>

Q. Speaking of amazing as still being here, what are your thoughts on Martina Navratilova playing singles, and your thoughts in general on her at age 47 doing what she's doing.

JENNIFER CAPRIATI: I mean, I think it's pretty remarkable that she's done that. I mean, as long as ?? you know, I've said this before about the future and youngsters coming up. I think it's better to maybe give them a chance to play, you know. I mean, she had her time.

But, I mean, that she's in it and she won especially, I mean, I think it's ?? you know, she has a lot of respect from the players and from the fans still. And I think it's just ?? it's really ?? it's still an honor for us to kind of watch her play still.

Swearing has never offended me as I do it myself, so I would never criticize someone else for it, and it seems neither should you During the French Open she also gave an interview on Eurosport where she said Martina was playing great for her age and that she had always been kind to her so she wished her all the best. I guess if you're selective about interviews and quotes you can have someone sound any way you chose ( in general, my finger is not pointing at you right now! )

if you think patty called her a disgusting bitch because she is a lesbian then you are just plain wrong because amelie mauresmo and janette husarova are 2 of patty's best friends on tour. otherwise i do not know what the point of your comment was.

ah, do u not remember an incident involving serena calling loit a fucken bitch at the oz open last year? so dont go preaching ur shit how u r sick of her profanity and this is one of the reasons y u arent gonna support her nemore coz the williams' have been guilty of the same thing, and at least she doesnt fake injuries

e.g. serena vs ruano pascual wimbledon a few years ago
