The Encyclopedia Jennifer

It's been a while since we've had a project in The Den.

We're going to try and compile an 'Encyclopedia Jen' which will include every relevant detail to Jen and her career in alphabetical order.

All of the suggestions deemed suitable (Claire - that's for you ) will be added into one big post.

Keep it Witty. Keep it Clean.


and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

C for Capriati, Stefano-Father and coach

"I'm just happy for what I have and really have no complaints. I don't have to prove anything to anybody or myself, really. I feel like I've realized that I've achieved a lot, at least in my tennis career. That's one less worry. That was kind of a worry before. I let that go."
Proud to be one of Jen's Hell's Angels!


And my fave doubles team: Virginia Y Paola. Vamo' arriba chicas!!!
