Why tennis won't be as interesting when Jennifer Capriati retires

1. There won't be as many gripping three set matches in Grand Slams.
2. There won't be anyone else who says what is on their mind as often as Jen does.
3. Fans won't be able to count her "you knows" anymore.
4. The best matchup in women's tennis (Jen/Serena) will be no more.
5. Fans won't be able to have 200 post debate threads on something Jen did, didn't do, said or thought.
6. There won't be as many entertaining tantrums during matches.
7. She's a great entertainer.
8. We won't enjoy hearing her swear.
9. We won't see Steven attending matches.
10. The coolest, funniest tennis fans will probably leave the tennis messages boards.

11. Stefano will have to start paying for his velour Fila sweatsuits.

Jen has so much character and heart. It makes you instantly notice her, like her or not.

I think she comes across as such a human. I remember reading her interview after her USO SF last year and I was amazed at her honesty and vulnerability in that moment.

She has given so much to tennis, produced many classic matches and is as fiesty as they come.

I'm proud to be a fan

She would make for a very entertaining commentator I think...."She could win the whole damned tournament,you know. Holy shit! What a forehand! Aah fuck,she's hit the ball into the net.......you know."

I love ya Jenny!

I think she will be another Martina N. She's not articulate enough to to commentate...well, then again neither is Martina Hingis and she commentating so we probably could see jen doing commentary.

it's cute how Jen fans always bring Serena into the conversation when discussing topics of this nature....guess they're a driving force for each other

I doubt she will! If you read her interviews she always says how age is just a number and that she has missed time off and she is making up for it etc!
