poor Jenny, she was having a tough time of it at that point. she had problems with her eyes too. it was that tournament where she kinda lost her aura of being up there in the top three with the williams sisters and justine and kim replaced her in the top 4.

I think Jenny said there was something wrong with her eyes during the match, like she was seeing dots or something

Yeah, I remember that. She would always have to squint because there were times she just couldn't see the ball at the other side of the net.

Re: Let's remember when Weingärtner def. DC Capriati in first round of AO2003 2:6/7:6

What an odd time to bring up this match...........anyways, here's an article from the upset.

***************************
Defending champion Jennifer Capriati crashed out of Australian Open 2003 this evening, falling in three sets to Marlene Weingartner of Germany.

The American looked to be cruising at a set and a break up but the match swung suddenly in Weingartner's favour and from then on in, despite some impressive shot-making, it was an uphill battle for the world's No.3 player.

"Physically I felt I started to get a bit tired (in the second set) and she just got on a roll there," said a visibly disappointed Capriati after the match. "I felt the momentum swing and physically and mentally I wasn't quite there I guess."

The American, who underwent surgery for an eye condition a week after the 2002 season-ending WTA Championships in Los Angeles said she was disappointed and that recovery from operations to both her eyes had restricted her preparation for her title defense.

"In a lot of ways I'm disappointed of course but I've got to look on the positive side. I came here as defending champion and maybe I didn't feel quite myself but I put myself on the line anyway and I have to give myself credit for that...even if I went out the loser."

However the two-time Australian Open champion was quick to give her opponent credit for her career-best performance. "She just hit really great shots out there," she said.

Jennifer Capriati - Marlene Weingartner: 6-2 6-7(6) 4-6

She also said she would have withdrawn had she not been the defending champion. Was so shocked when this happened.

This is my cool signature

It was the other way around. At that point you had two levels at the very top - Serena and Venus, and Jennifer and Kim. Justine joined Kim at that level early that year, while Jennifer dropped out.
