I think that question is an awful one to ask on this board. As soon as I saw it I thought that I could just see the kind of ignorant, rude replies it would get and low and behold NejedlyKanepi did not disappoint. The board is hostile enough without questions like that which just provoke people to rudeness.
Thanks <a href="http://www.capriati.co.uk" target="_blank">www.capriati.co.uk</a> , u just said what I tried to say in the other thread that Vtennis made about the Williams sisters.. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
When will people realise that tennis is not a popularity contest? Perhaps Jennifer has let herself down on court in the past, but she is a tennis player not a UN ambassador. Sometimes when I read threads like this I wonder if we expect too much from these guys. They are tennis players, some better than others, but people all the same, with feelings, emotions etc.,
Personally, I like Jennifer. I like her fiestiness, her spirit, her heart and her game. She is the person who got me into tennis and I will always have an affinity to her because of this. However, I can see her faults, which are often glaring. But she is human, a trait others would do well to remember with some players.
Another thing, those who do not like her easily forget her generous actions at times; the Corina dedication at the FO final, the placard before the FO quarter, the tickets for the kids suffering from cancer during the AO 2000, the flowers to Hingis when she got injured etc,. If any other player had done some of those things, we'd never hear the end of it. She's not perfect, but at times she can be nice.
Too often we castigate these guys because we think we know everything about them. Quite honestly the only knowledge I have of most players is via the media and I know how much they bend the truth (Part of my work involves doing this). We know nothing and shouldn't think we do. Who are we to pass judgement on someone we only know through a media controlled image?
Once again, my response has become longer than any essay I have every written, but I'm sick of these do you like X and why? threads. Perhaps I should ignore them, but there's too much hate in the world. Let's try and just accept people and not make them out to be the devil incarnate.
Well, I have to agree that threads like these usually bring bad respnses and this thread is no different. I am, however, a big jennifer fan and have been for years. I will continue to be. I find her very inspiring and she is a lovely person. <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" />
We should be very proud of Jen. She rededicated herself to tennis and obtained two slams and the rank of #1. She and Serena also, proved that it is one thing to win with no pressure but quite another when expected. But both I think learned from those experiences.
snuffkin and others are saying they are tennis players, AND people...
as people, i dont like them. arent there people you dont like???
have you noticed these threads are not nasty. thats because you say you ropinion and leave, im seriously interested as im sure some others are as to see what feelings are shared or not shared about the player. not to bitch. so get over it por favor because...
Nope, I'm sorry I just don't like her. I never really kept up with her game or results before this year, but I still supported her at the AO, and really wanted her to win her first GS. However as the year progressed she turned into a really ugly person to me, and that's what I base my judgement on. Don't get me wrong what she did this year was great, but as a person she's nowhere near fairytale like her year was said to be. She's rude to people, she complains constantly, and she's a hypocrit. That's just too much of a bad mixture to me. I used to not like Martina, but that changed. Maybe if Jennifer changes her attitude my dislike of her will change too.
I really like Jen.<br />NejedlyKanepi fan wasn't following tennis back in the early '90s to know how great it is Jen has finally fulfilled the expectations of her.<br />As for swearing, well i do quite a lot of that so I guess many of you guys can now decide that you don't like me too!
Because of all the recent negative posts. I'm going to say, "Yay Snuffkin" you're absolutely right.
Following Jen also got me into tennis whic I'm grateful for.<br />She doesn't swear on court, but then so do a lot of player and it just shows how much she wants it if she's going to berate herself or a shot she played because it isn't up to her standard.
She's fiesty, but she has done so many lovely things for other people as Snuffkin mentioned and she's put so much effort getting back to the standard of tennis playing she has now again reached - I can't berate her for that.
I am not a fan of her and in Paris she even started to irritate me a little but that was more because all the commentators keep talking(especially mac in wimbledon) about greatest comeback and so. It was also more the irritating bandwagon then her personal.
I've noticed that the posts in this thread seem to tell us a lot about the inside of people. It's really as if the posters were writing about themselves.
Snuffkin's post really let's us know what a reasonable and thoughtful person Snuffkin is.
QueenV's shows a person who can be supportive, but who's emotions can change when presented with new evidence.

Monica_Rules, NejedlyKanepi (1st post), Caio Braz, <a href="http://www.capriati.co.uk," target="_blank">www.capriati.co.uk,</a> TSequoia01, even me, for that matter, we all show who we are on the inside. This is kind of a magic thread, when you think about it. Everyone's telling the truth about themselves, they're just using descriptions of Jenn as a conduit.
