Let's discuss Jennifer Capriati

So uhhhh ... when is the Jenmeister going to bust this company out of the rut and win another title? Seriously now, 16 months without a title for an "elite" player? Little ridiculous, I think. But she does have a decent draw in Berlin ....

So what's it going to be? Jen's spent the last two years right up there with the best in the game and netted three Grand Slam titles in the process. But so far this year, it hasn't been so good. The disaster that was Australia notwithstanding, she's fallen just short in every other match she's had with the top players. is she due for a breakthrough, or have we seen the best of her late career revival?

I think she needs to work a little more on her fitness. Dont get me wrong, she is in shape but just not the shape she was in when you was on her Slam Run. She can still obviously hang with the "best' of them but seems to not be able to close those matches out... I tend to think between her dating Matthew Perry and her issues with her eyes, she really just lost her focus on tennis. I think she is definitley on the right track now, her results have shown it since the beginning of the year... Yeah she hasnt had any titles, but you can dispute that she has improved. I think she's going to break through in the middle of this year, who knows it may even start in Germany.... I wish her only the best!!!!

she will win again-dont know where dont know when... on some sunny day . She is more than capable- i would give her an outside chance of the french because she has won it b4.

The next big thing: Voegele

Interesting fact:

The last 4 titles Jennifer has won, she's had to beat Hingis in the process

01 AO F--def. Hingis 64 63
01 FCC F--def. Hingis 60 46 64
01 RG SF--def. Hingis 64 63 [def. Clijsters in F]
02 AO F--def. Hingis 46 76 62

It may just be one of those weird things, but who knows. Clearly Jen should be winning, IMO, at least 1 hardcourt and clay title a year. Berlin, Rome, Paris she should have a shot in. Berlin she has a good draw, but has it become mental for her?

Although the media hasn't given it that much focus (consider how they like to point out a certain other player's title failings), I would imagine Jen's aware and maybe it is preying on her mind a little.

i think its just a mental thing! she can do it but i dont know if she believes it! also she needs to get fitter as the matches she's lost have been three setters where she seems to get tired in the third set

We've seen JCaps best days

Shes still a solid Top 10er, but not top 5
Well, I take that back
Shes a top 5 player, but theres no room for her there

I think thats more accurate

Me says she loses to Shiavone in 3

I'd say her better day are over if she doesnt find that drive she had when she won the Aussie open.... but I thinks she's finding her mojo again... I guess time will tell..

you know what else? There's about 1000 other top five players on the tour, but there's no room for them there.

Her turn will come this year again. She has made the semis or better of every tourney this year since the OZ open. I really think she needs just 1 break thru match win, and her mojo will be in full swing again! I luv that she is still out there working out hard, regaining fitness, she's still hungry, and she's back in the role she loves - THE UNDERDOG!! I like her chances at Berlin this week--- good draw!!
