On the Court with… Jennifer Capriati


by Matt Christopher

Jennifer Capriati was a teen tennis phenom at age fourteen. Then, Capriati began to feel burdened by the pressures of fame, fortune, and the need to win. Three years after her professional debut, she left tennis to try to live the life of a normal teenager. After some very public mistakes, Capriati decided to turn her life around and try to regain her love of the sport. In 1996, she reemerged on the tennis scene. And by the turn of the century she had proven that she still had the skills, talent, and determination to be a superstar.
