OMG! The WTA listened to me!!!

I have really been irritated for years that Jennifer Capriati's WTA biography says that she was a finalist at the Light'n'Lively doubles event in 1992 with Gigi Fernandez, when she was in fact only a semi-finalist, and I've mentioned it a few times, but a week ago I sent an email to the contact address at the WTA website pointing it out again and THEY'VE CHANGED IT!!!

Excellent - it's just a little thing, but when you are a fan of a player you want to read their biography and not see a glaring error every time you read it!

Kudos to the WTA for listening to a fan!!!

Of course now it says SEMI-FINALIST (1) 1992 Light 'n' Lively

... so I've just written telling them she was also a semi-finalist twice more in 2001 at Charleston and San Diego with Arantxa Sanchez Vicario!!!

Bet they love me!!!

The influence you have is amazing! Now do me a favor and tell the WTA that the top ten must attend my wedding in the spring of 2004. The ceremony will be held in Rio and they are even invited to the african safari honeymoon.

remember they must rsvp asap
