Jennifer Capriati is a ray of sunshine on and off court. The WTA Tour is a better palce with Jennifer in it

A Heritage of champions

One is Brazilian. The other is American. One is in his 50s. The other is in her 20s. But they have a tremendous amount in common. On May 25, Guillermo Vilas and Jennifer Capriati will take time out in Paris to meet and swap stories about winning the French Open-Guillermo in 1977 and Jennifer in 2001. They'll also spend some time dishing about their favorite tennis togs, namely Fila's Heritage Collection. Guillermo played in the Fila collections that inspired the Heritage pieces Jennifer will proudly wear when she defends her title at Roland Garros.

Similar playing style
In 1977, Guillermo, known as the Pampas Bull, won 50 consecutive victories and 17 tournaments. The legendary string of wins was unlike anything anybody had ever witnessed before and helped cement Guillermo's spot in the Hall of Fame. Guillermo's trademark was his incredible on-court endurance. He could play for hours and hours, wearing his opponents down and slicing his way toward victory.

Jennifer shares this same work ethic. She never gives up. She goes after every shot, no matter how difficult. She works through the pain, as we all saw, worked through the early snipes from detractors who said she would never be able to make a comeback. Not only did she make a comeback, she's the sport's golden girl-and the winner of the 2002 Laureus Sportswoman of the Year Award.

GO JENNIFER, all the way at the French

" Here I am once again, torn into peices can't deny it can't pretend thought you were the one, broken up deep inside but you don't get to see these tears I've cried behind theses hazel eyes."

GO CAPPA!

So full of hate. Don't blame me about Vilas background, hello the article was copied and pasted from it's original version. Blame the sportswriters not the messenger. So back off! And please don't attempt to stifen my enthusiasm for Jennifer because it could never happen. Jen is a ray of sunshine all around the WTA! Thank you

In fairness, I dont think Lucas said anything about you; only that what was written was incorrect. You´re the one resorting to name-calling.

I´m on your side about Jen though!

they're both alike, but I CANNOT believe someone messed up with Guille's nacionality: ARGENTINA, that is A-R-G-E-N-T-I-N-A

so glad to see them both together...

Don't know why I bother asking anything about Jennifer here... you are all so full of hate. Why don't people just enjoy the tennis.

I want it known that I have no ill will towards anyone. Too bad this thread turned into a bash Capriati thread (again). I am not upset with anyone and I am over it. Mark, Capriati will go all the way baby!!!!!!!!! Good Luck Jen

Nationality error aside, I think it's nice that Jennifer and Guillermo played an exhibition together.

Good luck Jennifer :wave:
