Pic says - "I am still a winner"

Capriati has an excellent attitude - and in this picture - you would think she actually won . Here are a few more quotes:

AP - May 16, 2:07 pm EDT

``Last week, she played really well, and I wasn't ready for her,'' Capriati said. ``So I had something to prove to myself and to her.''

At 4-3 in the first set Sunday, Capriati produced a running passing shot that helped break Mauresmo, then served out the set.

In the second set, Mauresmo stepped up her game and broke to go up 3-1. With Capriati spraying forehands long or into the net, Mauresmo maintained the advantage and forced a third set.

``I felt like we were both playing unbelievable tennis and I didn't lose, she had to win the match,'' Capriati said. ``I don't feel that bad right now.

``It was just a really fantastic match. That's what I thrive for and that's what I play for, these kind of matches.''

Actually, the pic whispers to me -"I am Jay Leno's Littlest sister."

Jenn, you are supposed to feel bad right now. Don't settle for a runners-up spot.

I don't think she should feel bad. She should feel proud. The week before she lost to her 6-2, 6-0. This week she beat Serena Williams, and was in a final of a Tier 1. She also played great tennis, stayed aggressive - and did not mentally go away.

She has had a few excellent weeks, and continues to get better and better.

Why feel bad? I think this will motivate her to keep working hard.

Why feel bad? Because it will motivate her to keep working harder to win tournaments. Yeah, what she accomplished this week was great, but in the end she has no trophy (don't even mention the runners-up trophy) to show for it. I am saying this as a fan.

Jen played excellent tennis today. Even though she lost, she hung in there and made Momo fight for the win. Jen definately is back and is a strong competitor. Good luck in RG!!!

the fact that she beat Serena (for the first time in almost three years) this week, and came from a 2-6 0-6 drubbing to a 6-3 3-6 6-7 epic proves that she's a winner this week.

And like she's being saying...she wants to peak in Paris. Go Jen!

Definitely one of the reasons I'm feeling good about Roland Garros.
