how will williams fans react to the stanford final??

since i am a cappy/venus/hingis fan, i qualify for an answer. my pick : cAPRIATI BABY.


WHAT ABOUT you rest williams fans? aside from an open-minded few, it seems most williams fans HATE any of the sisters competition: first hingis, then capriati, then clijsters, now henin-cheating bastard-hardenne. who, oh just who, will be williams fans cheering for when cappy plays clijsters at the stanford finals???

will they 1. be petty and root for neither and ignore the whole event like true tennis fans SHOULDN"T?

or 2. cheer for the american??

or cheer for kimmy because capriati, once upon a long time ago, said some less than flattering remarks about serena and her daddy?

OR: williams fans will be open minded and actually care about a final without V&S and pick a side purely for athletic reasons.

....i am shivering in excitement at the replies. Teerexx, cybelle, vsforever, topshotta, where are you?????????????????

and... jennifer capriati !!

everybody jumped on the cappy bandwagon now

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Provided that you are just curious and are not trying to create another fighting thread, my answer is Jenn. She is my 4th fave and would always root her to win if she is not playing the sisters.

I'm sorry but there are Williams fans that are not americans.. Of course most of them are, but I can assure you that also there is a great part that's not..

I'm going to cheer for Jennifer, because Kim is threatning Serena's ranking, and also because Jennifer deserves a title...

townsend × rezaï × lisicki × vesnina
keys × mladenovic × siniakova × jankovic

The reason I was against martina is that she said some shady and hateful things. I guess her Half a man comment made you feel all warm and fuzzy. She matured even though she never apologized.

Capriati also said some mean spirited things. Though she, why not maturing, at least learned to keep a civil tongue.

Never disliked kim. She's lovely if a bit one dimensional.

Never disliked justine until she started that shady hand business and then refused to acknowledge she did anything wrong. so to her.

Go Jen Go usa. Though she will have her hands full with kim.

I, for one, will vehemently support Kim Clijsters! I would like for her to replace Serena as the number 1 player in the world. Kim deserves the ranking!

Moving forward, I suspect that Kim she would this tournament, along with the 2 other remainding California tournaments, which should put her pretty close to the number 1 ranking!

Go - Kimmie!

Williams fan here and though I could care less about the stanford final... I will have to go for the capster...

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

well, so far the williams fans have been much more open minded and mature than i thought. good thing. may we, as a tennis community, see more unity than pettiness. tennis is an awesome sport, let's not forget that.

There's nothing Capriati's said which Serena hasn't.

I'm not a Williams fan, I'm a Venus fan (they are two separate people, after all), and while I support neither Jen nor Kim, at the end of the day I prefer Jen.

I disagree. For example, I am sure serena have never said, "harder xavier, harder!"

I can't wait to hear the reasoning behind this one!!

Are you on the Clijsters bandwagon now?? I thought you were a true blue Capriati fan.
