1. There won't be as many gripping three set matches in Grand Slams.
2. There won't be anyone else who says what is on their mind as often as Jen does.
3. Fans won't be able to count her "you knows" anymore.
4. The best matchup in women's tennis (Jen/Serena) will be no more.
5. Fans won't be able to have 200 post debate threads on something Jen did, didn't do, said or thought.
6. There won't be as many entertaining tantrums during matches.
7. She's a great entertainer.
8. We won't enjoy hearing her swear.
9. We won't see Steven attending matches.
10. The coolest, funniest tennis fans will probably leave the tennis messages boards.

Jen has so much character and heart. It makes you instantly notice her, like her or not.

I think she comes across as such a human. I remember reading her interview after her USO SF last year and I was amazed at her honesty and vulnerability in that moment.

She has given so much to tennis, produced many classic matches and is as fiesty as they come.

I'm proud to be a fan :)

She would make for a very entertaining commentator I think...."She could win the whole damned tournament,you know. Holy shit! What a forehand! Aah fuck,she's hit the ball into the net.......you know."

I love ya Jenny! :inlove:

YOu are right she is not going to retire any time soon..what the heck will she do she does not seem to have any outside interest her entire life is tennis and nothing else so, her fans do not have to worry she will be playing forever. I think she will be another Martina N. She's not articulate enough to to commentate...well, then again neither is Martina Hingis and she commentating so we probably could see jen doing commentary.

it's cute how Jen fans always bring Serena into the conversation when discussing topics of this nature....guess they're a driving force for each other :)

I doubt she will! If you read her interviews she always says how age is just a number and that she has missed time off and she is making up for it etc!

Oh boy! If you're going to insult someone, get your words right. What you've written is insightful - I had no idea it was food that made her quicker. Thank you for enlightening me. ;)

The secret to success - keep eating and you'll get faSter. :lol: :lol: :lol:

All JennyS said was there would be no more of this great rivalry, one that is now starting to become like Yankees/Red Sox. She wasn't trying to start another fight.

O that day will be so sad for me, but I don't think it will be anytime soon. I love watching her play and cheering for her. I hope she plays forever. This thread got me depressed but I think it is because she hasn't played in like 2 months.:)

You don't have to be all that articulate to do commentary. If Luke Jensen can do it, then Jen is more than qualified to do the job:p

I love tennis because of Jen. When she retires....a long, long, long time from now, i will be so devastated. But i will always remember how awesome and great she was. The memories will always be there forever. Go Jen!!!!! :)

Jenny always speaks her mind just like Hingis:) She always fights well & gives 100% she is very emotional too! A great champ I hope she does not retire soon though!:)
