Skating had Tonya Harding so....

When is the WTA going to get its Tonya Harding back stabbing media event? I mean Tonya singlehandedly transformed her sport from a marginalized event watched half heartedly every four years to a die hard cult following media circus! She did it all with a crowbar, a big lug of a man, and an attitude.

So where is the tonya harding of tennis? I thought for awhile that jen was the tonya harding of the wta but she's all bark and not bite. I mean not once has she climbed over the net and taken a swipe at someone's knee or shins! And her brother hasn't been caught hiding in someone's locker trying mess with their raket tension. The only other person who seems tough is eleni so maybe she can hold it down Greek Style by poisioning someone's gator aide sleeping pills ala plato.

I think in spirit Jenn is the closest to Tanya in the WTA. She's had challenges that she overcame to climb to the top of her game, yet has always had the pressure and expectations give her problems, just like Tanya. I hope that no one will go out there and try to injure their opponent(s). Also, Jenn looks a little bit like Tanya. I can totally see them hanging out together. Tanya, Jenn & Iva...kicking back and having a drink and smokes at a club!

what an utterly, utterly tasteless and unnecessary thread.

cybelle, if this is an extension of your hate for capriati it is truly sad. if it is an attemp at humor it falls flat on its face.

you just gave me wonderful quotes. thanks.

There is no Tanya Harding and THANK GOD for that. Tennis had a high-publicized incident almost ten years ago, and let's hope that was the last time.

I think this thread is supposed to be a joke. I thought it was pretty funny.

I know Cybelle didn't mean any harm by it...but we had our tabloid event the year before Nancy and Tonya, and it wasn't so much fun.

I think it's funny...

Anyway, Tonya lacked the finesse...so I guess in that way it relates to Jen. Both are technically sound.

To be an equivalent though, Jen would not have to be the one who takes a swipe at an opponent's knees. She would have to hire a "handyman" for the job.

what's REALLY funny to me is seeing which fans of which players come in here and laugh.

i guess "treat others as how you'd like to be treated" just doesn't make sense to some people eh?

Calm down..that was a tongue-in-cheek comment by me.
I was just going along with the topic of this thread. I actually LIKE Jen and was rooting for her in all her matches in IW. I was torn between her and Lindsay in the SF..and that says a lot.

I have to nominate my fav, Patty. Her last two boyfriends have both been sentenced to jail terms, which I'd say is a darn good start towards building Tonya Harding credentials. Plus, before her current thug of a boyfriend (if you've ever seen the guy you know what I'm talking about) got his ass nailed by the German feds, he provided the key evidence that got the first boyfriend locked up.

Patty breaks her rackets on court, hits balls at the crowd, and curses violently in German at umpires, opponents, and fans. That's why I'm a big fan of her, and I think she's a strong contender for the esteemed Tonya title. All we need is for Patty to set up her arch-rival Anna K with a harmless little "accident," like setting her hair on fire in the players lounge, and we'll be good to go.

you are taking this way too seriously. Everyone knows that jen acts up on court but she would never do anything like tonya harding did, it was joke and people with a sense of humor got it.

But those are totally different circumstances! what happened to monica was a tragedy and steffi had no hand in it whatsoever. Tonya on the hand had some lame lunk head hit kerrigan in the knee and she was perfectly fine except for the scare.
