Maria and Jennifer Capriati team up for hurricane victims in the US

20th October 2004

Maria and Jennifer Capriati have agreed to play a tennis match at the Office Depot Center (ODC) in Miami, Florida to benefit hurricane victims, but a date hasn't been set.

(from www.mariaworld.net)

Awww... how nice of Masha and Cappers.

What the fuck. Shame on you Seiya!!! They are doing something nice for a community that really really needs it. Plus, they fucking live in florida. After the disasters that have happened in florida, like 4 or 5 straight big hurricanes, they need something like this.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

Well, I think it's nice that they want to "give back" to the people who have suffered in Florida from all those hurricanes, but . . . that's why we have FEMA. No offense, but the federal government takes very good care of disaster victims. They are fully reimbursed for lost property, given money for food and clothing and sheltered while their homes are being rebuilt.

On the other hand, the people in Haiti are the poorest of the poor. It would be nice if someone gave them some money.

But, I don't want to take anything away from Maria and Jennifer. It's good they want to do something for their home state. Good for them.
