Jenifer capriati dating
Following a first-round loss at the 1993 US Open, Capriati took a 14-month break from competitive pro tennis.Her personal struggles during this time (including arrests for shoplifting and possession of marijuana) were well-documented by the press.She made her professional debut in 1990 at the age of 13 years 11 months, reaching the final of the hard-court tournament in Boca Raton, Florida.Capriati reached the semifinals of the French Open in her debut and later became the youngest ever player to reach the top 10 at age 14 years, 235 days in October of that year.
Sources tell me she is still wrestling with personal issues and even considered not accepting the Hall's invitation because she had anxiety about being in public.
And who knows, if her shoulder hadn't forced her to retire she might still be on the court fighting today. And as she stands on stage to hear the applause, she'll hopefully remember, so will her fight.
But seeing how her old friends are still in her life, maybe she has enough fighting on her plate for now.
She also wanted to practice with her father after the official team practice was over. Which is why the trick to survival isn't defeating your demons, it's never giving up the fight.
That is how Capriati became the champion that she is.
They will be with her when she delivers her acceptance speech at the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, R. Few of us have been forced to manage them in front of cameras at such a young age.
