Do Capriati and Davenport hate each other?

I saw their handshake today and there wasn't an ounce of friendliness in it. Considering that they were born three months apart, are from the same country and socio-economic background, have had similar career success (both winning three grand slams and an Olympic gold medal for the US), and have been playing together on the tour for more than 10 years, why do they seem to resent each other and have such a cold relationship? This isn't the first time I've noticed this.

Yeah, I just think it has to do with Jen not liking to lose. She was just pissed.

I wouldn't take too much out of it.

Or maybe its b/c not everyone is going to be like Venus and Serena when the sisters meet at the net. Even Chris and Martina had their regular handshakes. It depends on the mood of the player.

How can a player be pleased when she lost?
Jennifer is a little bit cool but not that bad. However, looking at the way they play against each other, I definitely say J is the true loser. Lindsay is simply better. Jennifer may still think she shouldn't lose. So, she is not pleased.

Also, I don't think they hate each other. But they are definitely not good friends. It's like Pete and Patrick. They are rivals.

Maybe Jennifer needs to start "making out" with the opponent after the match....

Yes, Jennifer sometimes stinks on court, but most players, like Jenn, don't do the "Chorus Line" number after they lose a match...

The two have a very respectful relationship toward each other. So don't make mountains out of anthill over a freakin handshake.................

They are two professional players out there competing. Why would they have to be friends? Should I be friendly to everyone at my work just because they do the same job and are around the same age as myself?
