Perhaps needing her own meds, former tennis star Jennifer Capriati took out her frustrations on twitter over the stunning announcement of Maria Sharapova’s doping violation.
Here’s Capriati’s series of tweets presented in chronological order from this afternoon:
Im extremely angry and disappointed. I had to lose my career and never opted to cheat no matter what.i had to throw in the towel and suffer
i didn’t have the high priced team of drs that found a way for me to cheat and get around the system and wait for science to catch up
the responses are exactly what i am talking about. everything based on illusion and lie driven by the media for over 20 yrs. beyond unfair
something is wrong with the whole system. The intentions of the system was never morally grounded to begin with
I just think it takes away from the sport and the hard work if true. Yes its hard to be kicked when down, when injured and out
Everyone reading what’s written and assuming it’s true is wrong. It’s just wrong. all of it not true. Nothing
It shouldn’t matter on whether I have an opinion or not anyways whether it’s true about me or not. Look at what’s happening all around? of what u read is true
People being taken down for speaking the truth. People that have the power to take people down do and think they can. That’s why I am vocal
It’s all not true. I was given the human right to be happy and live a life of happiness not my life being told as a lie and taken from me
All the lies have robbed me of my life at some point enough is enough and a line must be drawn or you must fight back for pride and dignity
Young people asking me if I’m relevant here and who I am?? I’ve been here my entire life. Since I could walk I have been part of it
What’s the point of someone taking a heart medicine that helps your heart recover faster unless you have a heart condition? Is thataccurate?
It’s always about one thing that benefits everyone.#money
How things have changed..wow
The advantages are so subtle they can be just a hair width difference. that gives you only what you need to know to reach that extra level
Sometimes it’s all about what gives you the most confidence to win
How does being passionate and protective of your sport in a way make you a hater?
Why is this medication banned now?
I ask the question why care so much about something that obviously doesn’t care about you so much and only has taken?
Maybe I should start taking it? Lol I might feel better
If this medication helped me to comeback again would everyone be alright with me taking it?
How much did it take away from the other persons food plate
In my opinion of its all true every title should be stripped. This is other people’s lives as well
