Let threads like that get the "no response" death they deserve.
A response is what "Trudi" wants.

I'd much rather celebrate what Capriati has accomplished the last 3 years. She's picked herself up and keeps on rolling--I can't wait to see her and Venus match up this year, and I'd dearly love for Jen to get Venus on clay!

Snappy Cappy makes me happy:cool:

As Jon Wertheim said in February's Sports Illustrated:

" When she steps onto the court, Capriati contracts a case of what Aussies call 'white-line fever', sublimating her usual affable personality and turning into a fire-breathing dragon."

It is absolutely her on-court personality, her aggression that makes me such a fan of Jen! This is a SPORT after all, I like people who give it all they've got. If this means passionnate, strong emotions that get out of control once in a while, it's part of the package for a fan like me.

Seeing that I like a whole lot of you JCap fans, I don't think I'll be contributing to the Trudy thread.:angel:

Until Capriati's fans ACKNOWLEDGE her problems/flaws, she will NEVER be the player or person she can be. By skirting the issues surrounding Capriati's psychological problems, neither the media nor her fans are doing her justice by accepting her OUTRAGEOUS behavior. There are many players playing with the same passion and commitment as Capriati, but are not acting like LUNATICS just having escaped an insane asylum. Sorry, but the girl has some real personal issues.

Sorry, guys. I'm a Capriati fan too and her on court stuff doesn't bother me at all. But I find myself liking Trudy too, at least, her style of writing (second post was rather hilarious). Don't really care for her views though, but I think creating a thread asking others not to respond to her simply because she's seen as bashing a favorite isn't exactly the stuff that makes tennis boards interesting.

angele87 - Can't you respect that some people DO like jenn and stay out of threads meant to appreciate her? There is a perfectly nasty thread down the page somewhere to spread your venom about Jenn - this isn't it!

\I contributed to the Trudy thread- i couldn't help myself.

But I'll stop :D lol

Good of you Rollo - I should practive restraint more often!

I agree A4. I admit that Trudy has spunk, and she shouldn't be attacked for expressing her opinion or asking a question.

I just choose not to attack Jenn since 1) I've already done so, and 2) it's seems we've collectively gone overboard with it.

LOL @ Becca. You'd better calm down or else you'll give yourself a heart attack.

Well I'm a hypocrit and keep doing it.
Appologies.

no worries Bright Red - i'll make it okay. No heart attacks for me today.

To be honest I kind of enjoy arguing with people who have a lot of built up anger, because watching them fumble around stupidly is rather amusing. Only for a few moments then its gets boring...


Anyhow - I know Jenn can be irritating on court. But i admire her never say die attitude, and recognize that under all that she has a very warm heart :)

Her competitive spirit can be a little scary ;) but that gives me no right to judge her.

Jen is cool!

Jennifer is a cool person, top player and an inspiration. With Lindsay out injured (to God knows when!) Jennifer is my favourite player and I throw all my support behind her. So what if she shows emotion on court. I like it when players show emotion, it means they're not robots.

'Snappy Cappy makes me happy'

LOL @ Rollo :):)

I missed Jen's on-court antics in OZ so I have nothing really to say about them, but I have only ever really seen Jennifer act with respect towards other players most of the rest of the time and I respect her for that :).

I love Snappy Cappy too :)

Yes, she may be a bit of a dragon on court at times, but when it's all said and done, she's a nice person, very friendly, and one of the most approachable tennis players I've ever encountered :)

I had to throw a certain piece of thrash in that thread away but I plan to stay away from it now unless needed.

Well I can understand that Capriati sometimes does not behave well on the court at times. Big deal. People sometimes forget what she did for Darren the cancer patient or acknowledging Corinna. Jenn fans there will always be haters on this board. We have to understand the AWESOME things Jenn has done on the court. Some people can't accept that and will go to all lengths to discredit her. They are the ones with the problems. Let Trudi vent her feelings, if it makes her feel better to trash someone else who has accomplished more than she will ever do in her life, then let her...Jealousy is an ugly thing.....

JENN WE LOVE YOU!!!
