LOL! I am surprised at the number of people who dislike her! It's amazing. I always thought I was the sole Jen non-supporter, but I can't name one person who does support her. Just make yourselves known! Don't be shy!

I'm a young girl, an old WTAWorld member.

Mrs Guga- I can't speak for all Jenn supporters, but myself - there are so many hate threads about jenn put on here that I can only be bothered to defend her in so many of them.

Its the same pathetic garbage all the time. If you hate a player fine - but is it really worth several threads on the same topic all in one day? (i mean you collectively, not you yourself Mrs Guga ).

So though I've been at it today, I generally ignore the stupid crap that people post on here. You can say you don't like something and be constructive about it without being a total dumbass- but many people on here refuse to excersize that ability.

Anyhow -Jenn has tons of supporters. She just happens to have some really stupid and loud haters too. And of course those who don't like her, but are neither stupid or loud lol

Well said, Becca...who has the time to respond to all the hate threads. Frankly, it makes this board a drag sometimes, so I just don't read them for the most part. There are players I don't like for various reasons, but I don't create threads on a daily basis to piss off their fans or degrade them. I expect it when Jen wins, but when she loses the match it's particularly poopy.

I took a poll on the favorite players here on the board and Jennifer came in 2nd place with the most fans!
There are lots of Jenn fans...

Jen fans are out there definitely Like Becca said, I think some of us just don't really pay much attention to the bashing threads and just enjoy that she is playing top level tennis, winning slams, and competing to her best against the world's top players which is just about as much as you can ask for No sense in dwelling over the negativity

I tend to like people when they are still underdogs. When Jenn won her Slam and became the "Wonderkid" or whatever, I just didn't care about her anymore. But then I noticed that her on-court antics don't make me fancy her either and now I really despise her. But yeah, I mean, I haven't mentioned it TOO much. I think people on here need to stop bringing it up every 2 seconds and understand that people here do like her so I will try not diss her unless she really bugged me out one day and it needs to be said! But, yeah, it's weird. I love Kim yet I know people out there detest her. So opposite of opinions! And I hate Justine and most people I meet don't. Maybe the world would be a better place if we all just respected everyone... except racists! LOL!

Jennifer is one of my favorites. But I don't bother reading the hate threads. I don't have time for all that nonsense.

In all honesty, and at this time, like is too strong of a word to describe how I feel about Ms. Capriati.


However, I don't dislike her.

Jen is such an amazing tennis player, can't take that away from her. She's has done something very rare in her life, that is to try and forget everything about the past and move on. I look up to that. Knowing that there is a person out there at one point in there career was going no where, but through hard work and dedication proved many spectators wrong. The only thing I dislike about her is her personality on court. IMO, I think thats what makes her unique in some ways, knowing that she's such a perfectionist and a fighter on the court. Lots of people hate her, and lots of people hate other people too. But there are also people who like her.

I admire FAF's willingness to fight to the end but all that swearing at babies crying and what not just makes me wanna hurl in her face!
