Is it just me or is EVERYONE pre-judging Jennifer???

After all of her years on the tennis circuit, her many contributions to the game and her service to the "brand" off womens tennis, a brand she help build with her on court presence and riveting rivalries... she has been virtualy abandoned by the tour that benefited from her popularity and name.

Who wouldnt be pissed off and depressed? After 20 years of hard work, only to be dumped like a sack of potatoes. Saying that, Jennifer has had legit injuries, sever recurring shoulder pain on her right shoulder....these injuries have left her without the ability to come back.

Its pretty pathetic to see members here picking on her and insisting shes on "drugs" or that she is is a crazy headcase. Its really sad and its pathetic. Jennifer is an icon and an inspiration to many who have battled depression, indefference from family and for dissadvantaged youth all over....even she probably doesnt realize her complete impact...but nevertheless its there.

Myself...i was young and i had suffered several losses in terms of family deaths including a mother and grandmother due to cancer....this women's remarkable comeback inspired ME to stop crying and stop feeling sorry for myself, and to pick up a raquet and start playing tennis....over 12 years later i am playing tournaments and i have a ranking in the sport (no small feat for someone who started only at 12) plus i got my life back....thank you jennifer!

So i say to everyone who wants to pick at this woman....dont forget what she has done, dont forget all the positives she brought to our sport that we love, and most importantly, please do not judge her!!!

She is clearly in bad situation and yes tennis is something that she wishes she could do again...she was one of the best and still is!!!

Jennifer get better and we all love you so very much. :wavey:

i don't judge her at all... i think people who judge her are teenegers who don't really know anything about life and think they will never fall like that... Thing is, life is not as easy as it seems when you are young and who is attacking her will realize it soon:o I actually admire her even more compared to other players (ahhm, my favorite for example) because she's always been able to overcome her struggles

to anybody who may be reading this thread i also wanted to add that her relationships, private or public, are not very well defined....this porn star may simply be a friend...he does porn, does that make him evil? does that make him not a person capable of being in a loving relationship??? absolutely NOT!

People in tennis have a tendency to be very very close minded, conservative and most importantly HYPOCRITICAL....please do not judge, those who live in glass houses shouldnt throw stones...

Its really sad how many are making rude nasty comments...and its not warranted or nice!

you know what Jen has the resources to get a good psychologist to help her transition from being a child prodigy to adulthood.Alot of players have transition well into retirement.
I dont understand why she is in denial about her career,that chapter is done and its time to move on.
I hope USTA will reach out and give her a job to mentor kids,she has experience..

Im sure she does want to have a job related to tennis.....but to me she should be in some sort of position were she could really help people come to the sport, maybe as a special envoy...

i dont think she enjoys commentating too much.

As far as her career....we all think she knows its done, so to state that fact is really pointless...everyone knows SHE knows its done...big deal.

Alot of what people are saying is based on gossip...

No matter how you spin it drugs and porn do not necessarily scream innocence.

It is nice to hear she was such a inspiration for you but you really know nothing about her are her rise thru the tennis ranks. Im not surprise at all that this happen and it is sad but people have choices and the choices they make define who they are or the things that happen to them. I really hope that she gets well and makes better choices in her life because she really is a special girl.

I totally agree with you. TMZ latest reporting is a total disgrace and they should be ashamed of themselves. Even if there is any truth to it there is no need for the public to know anymore then what was reported before today.

If Jennifer has sufered from depression so what it's an illness just like any other and can be treated. Jennifer needs our compassion not people sitting and judging her.

People who've been calling Jennifer a headcase should be ashamed and go and take a good hard look at themselves. No one know what future holds and they could end up in the position as Jennifer is in now so no has the right to judge her.

What has innocence got to do with anything?
