Sure, no problem......
Davenport: "She's the first player I remember seeing hit the ball hard, shot after shot, from both sides."
Dementieva: "She has very strong arms. She has power."
Sugiyama: "She seems like a big girl, but she's a lot quicker than you think."
Schett: "She loves fun. She's fun to be around. You know, movies, dancing, going to a club."
Petrova: "She has a great feeling for tennis. She knows the game so well."
Petrova: "She's a very sweet person, but she has her strange things. She can be in her own little world." --- I thought this one was a little strange, but Jen does go it alone, so who knows......
from Serena: there is a partial quote in which Serena calls their rivarly "perhaps the best in women's tennis."
From coaches and others.....
Harold Solomon, Jen's coach in '99 and '00:
"When she believes in herself, when she puts the work in both on and off the court, she can be unbelievable."
"She just keeps coming back. It's a shame that she's had to do that as opposed to being able to maintain, but it makes for great drama."
"Jennifer always has problems with those last 5 pounds. I don't think she has been fit-really fit-in several years."
"It's always been, with her, 'I've got the game, I don't really want to mess with it.'"
"She's convinced that if she's in good shape, and playing her hardest, she can play with anyone. And she can. She's one of the great fighters. She fights her guts out."
"When I was coaching her, she was reading some pretty heavy-duty philosophy. I was suprised. It was like...Nietzsche on airplanes."
Kevin O'Connor, head of tennis at Florida's Saddlebrook Resort (Jen's home)
"Jennifer is the best striker of the ball in tennis, period."
