this is a banana question.

I don't hate any player, and always state that a player I don't care for has talent. unlike alot of V@S haters.

Please share with us your infinite knowledge of the "kid" taking dope to help her play? Do you have any evidence to this matter or are you talking out of alternate body parts again?

Tratree - Dawn frequently makes these accusations about Jenn. And you know, it's "her just opinion", which she is entitled to.

BUT, if you make this comment about the unbelievabley ripped Serena, notice who is the first to call "racist"

In other words - trying to rationalize the words of the irrational is a lost cause.

well this was probarly one of her best matches of the year, I have to give her credit for that, after losing 6:1 6:1 at the last tournament. it shows that she has mentallity

We all start in the streams
We're all carried along

Thanks for the clarification, Rebecca

It's so funny, these pre-conceived notions and "opinions" people get of someone they've never met or maybe even seen in person. I saw Jennifer up close the last few days and she is looking extremely fit again. She's happy, she's confident and I'm certain she will come back in 2003 with a renewed spirit. People say she is doing drugs because her eyes are red. Hello....she's having surgery next week because of a condition that makes her eyes irritated and affects her vision. I noticed this weekend that when she hits the ball, she then squints to see if the ball was good or not. She does this constantly during the match. I'm not saying she's losing because of her vision problems, but heck, it sure could contribute to the last few months of problems. She's accused of being on drugs because she's cranky and she cusses sometimes on court, yet today Serena tossed her racket no less than three times and very audibly said "SHIT!" when she doulble-faulted. She was also very demeaning to the linesperson who kept calling her foot faults (and they WERE foot faults). I'm not saying this is horrible about Serena, she's human like anyone else. Heck, I'd be saying that and worse, but when Jennifer does it, Lawd help us, she's on drugs. Now she's "faster" so she's on drugs. Okay, your opinion. My opinion, you're wrong.

Props to Tratree, even if u don't respect Cappy, at least respect her game of tennis. Its understandable that u may dislike a player because of her past, but saying she takes drugs to compete is a different story. She fought just as hard as Serena did and hung in there in every game of the match. I give Jen TONS of respect(even tho im not her fan) for showing everyone that they're wrong, and she can still compete with the number 1 player in the world. (people doubting she could score 1 point in a set).

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!

Respect is a natural reaction and not need to be asked. If Jenny continues this kind of attitude then she will earn more respect.

ROTF!!

Come on- oh.."we respect her now". Yeah, right.
Who are you fooling? I like Jen alot; when the
chips are down, when she's dancing in nightclubs
in the wee hours, when she loses to Conchita.

For the doomsday brigade it's........
If she loses to a Williams or Monica it's ok not to
hate her. When Jen wins; she doesn't deserve it.
If she wins a grand slam- it was a miracle. When
she doesn't show up she's obviously stoned out
of her mind.

lol.

Give it a break folks- JEN IS HERE TO STAY. Well...
at least for now- in the top 5, and contending for
major events so deal with it.

Enuff with the backhanded compliments, and
cheap shot slurs.

Dawn Marie - why don't you write a newspaper column accusing Jennifer of drug taking and then she can sue your sorry arse!

Sorry, Mark, but our dear Dawnie is afraid of voicing such serious allegations publically. In the real world outside cyber space, as some of us know, there is a great need for being careful with words!

I have never liked Jen and I never will. Has nothing to do with her game. I don't have any new-found "respect" for her and I never will.

Dawn, your comments about Jennifer "being on drugs" are irresponsible, immature and in extremely poor taste. The chances of Jennifer being on drugs are the same as they are for Venus and Serena.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.
