WOW!!! :eek:

That's a long time. If she beats Kim it could be an even bigger acheivement for Jenn than originally thought.

It could put her back to competing for tournaments....

I was just going to post something about this.

As much as I hate to remember it, Jennifer beat Lindsay Davenport in the final of New Haven this year, and Lindsay was 4 or 5. Right?

From the WTA:

as world No. 7 and No. 3 seed, notched first title in 18 months at New Haven when top-seed and former world No. 1 (current world No. 4) Davenport was forced to retire at 62 4-0 due to neuroma condition

so then its only been a few months since capriati beat a top 5!!

as opposed to nearly 2 years!! (which the title of this thread suggested)

I am just going by what Cliff, Mary Joe, and Pam have said like 5 times now....

Maybe they just aren't counting this one because Lindsay retired

davenport may have retired in the match, but technically its still a top 5 win.

Yeah, that's why I'm wondering why they keep saying that...

I don't think Pam considered Jen's win a win because Lindsay retired. Had Venus or Serena retired, Pam would have said it was a win.

Yes because Pam is such a ruthless bitch.
;)

While YES I'm teasing, the whole chip on the shoulder cast by the media thing is getting a bit tired. I'm trying to be polite even though it didn't come out that way. And it's not really directed at any one person specifically. :)

No...but ONE win over a top 5 player and she has been top 5 during that time as well...that is pathetic!

Looks like she'll have to wait until 2004 for the next one :sad:.

Still, IMHO she definitely still has it in her :).

What the hell is Pam talking about then? If there is a segment asking viewers to call/email we should all email her telling her that she is wrong.

It's not to you. I'm just tired of reading (and I paraphrase) "Pam said my fave's hair isn't cute, so I hate Pam now." Type stuff.

I don't hate Pam; I don't even know the woman. Having said that, I think she has some sort of bias against the sisters for some reason.

It is kind of dumb how they aren't counting Jennifer's victory over Lindsay as a top 5 win, yet all year they kept talking about how Kim beat both Williams sisters in last year's Championships. Give credit where credit is due!!

Ok, it wasn't for you. Everyone has a bias... I was just demonstrating that same fact.

I told you; it is because Venus and Serena are Venus and Serena and eveyone else is everyone else.

Pam has made a number of mistakes during the broadcasts. She has repeatedly said that Jen and Justine played Doha this year, when it was Dubai.
