Petrova Ousts Capriati To Reach Roland Garros Fourth Round

Petrova Ousts Capriati To Reach Roland Garros Fourth Round

Jennifer Capriati stared into space in disbelief. The 2001 Roland Garros champion saw her run to another French Open final come to an abrupt end today at the hands of Nadia Petrova, who ousted the seventh-seeded Capriati, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3, to advance to the tournament quarterfinals.



The 2002 Roland Garros semifinalist was the third seeded American woman to fall today, joining third-seeded Venus Williams, who was upset by 18-year-old Russian Vera Zvonareva, 2-6 6-2 6-4, and, and sixth-seeded Lindsay Davenport, who retired while trailing Conchita Martinez, 6-4, 2-0.

Capriati had been playing solid tennis and was looking forward to going deeper in the draw.

"You know, I thought I had pretty good chances in this tournament," Capriati said. "It goes to show, you never know. Of course I am very disappointed. I've just been working so hard. But she's definitely a good player and a dangerous player and when she's on, she's on."

This win indicates that while the other girls keep on improving, Jen has been stuck to her level. She can't beat lady who is ON even when she's ON.hehehehe

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

I so disagree BasicTennis. Anyone who watched the match saw that Jen played great and her game has improved quite a bit, even since the begining of the year. Her serve is better, her shot are harder, her slice backhand is much better than it used to be.

It's good to know that Jen is now "stuck" at such a high level.

Did you watch it? She played great tennis, making great shots and great shots under pressure. She played confidently and she played well. Ditto, Nadia.

Basic Tennis, obviously hasn't been watching Jen play recently or else he/she would've seen how well Cappy's been playing and how much she's improved since the start of the year and I hope and think she will keep it up and continue to improve throughout the rest of the year.
