The German Open: Time for Capriati to show she still has what it takes

Jennifer Capriati is going into the German Open this week and so far, this year, she has played in four tournaments and has only won more than one match on one occassion in any of those events.

She did have a minor injury, but she seems to have lost her spirit and desire to properly train since her loss to Hardene in last year's U.S. Open.

Maybe she has used the last few weeks to diet, eliminate the parties and properly workout to prepare herself for this event and the rest of the year, in what will very may be her last season on the pro tour.

I hope Jen can win. Venus is finally back; Serena came back in Miami...it's time for Jennifer to return.

Come on girl!

Disrespectful? That is her actual 2004 record. Also, Jenn is or will be about 28 this year and I just can not see her playing until she is 32 or or 47 like Nav.

This TeeRexx, I swear it must be a Williams fan. It's so typical of them to disrespect.

#1 Her injury was not minor, and it actually is a condition that she will live with.

#2. She has been working hard on her fitness.

#3. Motivation: She has been working with different coaches to try and find the right match for her. For the last few weeks she has been working with Steffi's old coach - and he will be with her at this event.

#4. Last year? Jennifer has not said that this is her last year.

#5. Prove? She has nothing to prove to anyone (but maybe to herself).
If she quits today, she will go down as a legend.

Yes I agree. If anyone on the tour knows how to comeback, it's Jen.

Goodluck JCap!

As a Jenn fan I hate not seeing her win all the time like recent years but I think that US OPEN loss hit her incredibly hard. But she's one of the best at bouncing back and I'm sure she just needs a couple of good showings under her belt and she'll be rising back to her best.

While I may not always agree with Tee Rexx, I dont see how he has been disrespectful to Jennifer.

All he is saying is that this MIGHT BE Jen's last season on tour. He is just speculating and offering his opinion just like everyone on this board. Please lighten up. Jen does not need to prove anything to anyone, but the reason she is still playing is that she believes she has what it takes. Just has to show it because ever since that crushing defeat at the US Open, the heartbreak and the injuries have conspired against her.

Take care of your character. Reputation will sort itself.
