But didn't he go to jail for her?

Most on this board have no clue as to who he is or the hell he put Mary through.

I know he isn't normal but are you serious saying HELL I have read in a few magazines about that, the famous "..kill the bitch Mary.." and others... :mad: :fiery: :mad: :fiery: :mad:

I voted for Jim Pierce....yelling at his 14-15 year old daughter at the French Open...how dare he! I remember little Mary in her coke-bottle glasses trying her best. If I remember, she was in tears on the court. :sad: He was assinine and deserves a special place in Hell. :mad:

Agreed! He was abusive. Once you start slapping your daughter in the face over a stupid tennis match, you become lowlife! :fiery:

Erm, it's Jim Pierce.

How many of those other parents are alledged to have beaten their daughter after she lost a match ?

I think I read somewhere that the scar Maam has on her nose was caused by Jim slamming the car door on her head after she lost a match. For me what he did to her makes him by far the worst of the parents!

:o Too bad there isn't a "too many to count" category!Its' a toss up between Graf and Pierce....but I think Pierce was more of a terrorist.I remember one story where Mary was going on a date.The boy came to pick her up,and Jimbo,made the two of them sit and watch the VS champs before they could go out.I believe it was the Sabatini and Seles 5 setter.

I've read some things about Jeager as well.He sounded like a piece of work as well.This shit has gone on forever though...Suzanne Lenglen[sp] in the 20's,supposively had a dick head for a father.

I was wondering about that when I posted about Jim Pierce earlier.

I thought Lucic's father had been violent as well :mad: - but wasn't sure - so thought I'd get my facts straight first.

Wasn't Lucic's dad violent as well?

Makes you wonder though - we know about these characters mostly because their daughters did well enough to get noticed by the public. What about the kids who got crushed so bad they never made it?

omg please don't tell such stories :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad:
and now just look at Mary, She helps this f*** a lot and after RG 2000 "..dad thank's for everything.." She is soooo REGAL
Love you Mary :hearts: :kiss: :inlove:

Mary's dad by a mile. Jim Pierce isn't even his real name, he changed it to hide from police! If you read all his stories, he makes Damir look like an angel!

You just described Damir. Australian authorities even took Jelena into protective care when she was just 14 after organisers of a junior tennis tournament informed them that Damir was physically abusing Jelena.

Jim Pierce's real name is Bobby Glenn Pearce and he has a criminal record that includes fraud and armed robbery.

I have mixed feelings about Peter Graf. Yes, he was a pretty crazy man - in fact a criminal and after 1990 he seriously interrupted Steffi's career. But still I think that without him Steffi wouldn't have been the player whe was. Early in her career his support meant a lot to her.

Voted Pierce, could have voted Lucic, WOULD have voted "for" Petr The Terrible (Krajicek). He beat the crap Out Of teenaged Richard years ago, and has @ least threatened Misa with beatings if she was Playing Poorly. Repeat offender! :mad:

Marinko Lucic by far, he would whip her daughter even for winning when she wasn't playing her best tennis...

Richard Williams may say some ridiculous things but I believe he does love his daughters and has had a major role in their success. I only have heard about him being abusive to his now ex-wife Oracene Williams. I really didn't think the crazy things he says make him eligible for this poll
Thanks for voting!
