Smile Capriati "dead set" on a comeback

From Wertheim's Column:

What are you hearing from the Jennifer Capriati camp? Is her shoulder healed? Is she planning to play again soon? -- Dale Stafford, Atlanta

I hear that she's not only considering a comeback, she's dead set on it. I paraphrase here, but a source close to her told me She has her good her days and bad days, but she is totally determined not to have played her last match. Given the relative power vacuum in women's tennis, I can very easily see the Capster, even at age 30, back in the mix. Also, perhaps these two years off have ultimately served her well. She hasn't beaten up her body and grown fatigued traveling (and playing in 120-degree heat!) This may have had a restorative effect on her body.

Re: Capriati "dead set" on a comeback

Yeah I was just going to post this.......

Former world number one and two-time Australian Open winner Jennifer Capriati of the US, seen here in 2004, still plans a comeback despite being 30 and missing the last two years with a shoulder injury.

I saw this on YAHOO TENNIS page, I thought it was kind of random and was wondering if anyone has seen a recent interview from here.. I just wouldn't think they would randomly put a picture out there of her with that comment you know??

Either way, thats great news!!!

Come back EVENTUALLY Cappy!! Ok this clearly was written back in a day when I still had faith..

Re: Capriati "dead set" on a comeback

I think I would cry if I saw her come back. I'd just be afraid she'd suck. -_-

Re: Capriati "dead set" on a comeback

I think Capriati fans and non-fans alike would love to see her back for entertainment purposes! Come on, Jen. The US certainly needs you now.

Re: Capriati "dead set" on a comeback

Jenn has always been my favorite player and i really thought there was no chance of her ever coming back, but now im hopeful that someday (and maybe soon) she could be playing again.

i hope this isn't more false hope like last year during the aussie open.

Re: Capriati "dead set" on a comeback

Im not going to get my hopes up but it would meane verything for me to see her play a year or 2 more! She has said shes still working out so fitness wouldnt be a problem and someone who is such a natural ball striker shouldnt take too long to get into the swing of things! come back soon Jen !!!
