Well, it's clearly just a silly list, but to put the Hewitts ahead of Mr. Lucic seems a little absurd to me. And what did Richard ever do to merit himself in the top 3?

I don't think Melanie Molitor belongs on that list. I don't think Martina played when she didn't want to and Melanie backed off when Martina needed space. Hell, I'd love to get "abused" like Martina did by Melanie!

I think Melanie Molitor is a wonderful mother and surely does not belong on this list. Shame on those people for putting her there.

Also, I seriously doubt Peter Graf ever "bullied" Steffi. He was a wonderful father, just greedy and a drunk.

Neither Steffi nor Martina would have turned out they way they did if Melanie and Peter were as awful as these people say they were.

[Martina is a rude brat but that doesn't make her a bad person.]
