View Full Version : Does anyone have the full transcript for Capriati's interview?

Jul 31st, 2002, 03:32 PM
Despite the fact that world No. 1 Serena Williams has won five titles this year (including the French
Open and Wimbledon), and has beaten her three times in 2002, Capriati refuses to concede that she
is an inferior player.

"I don't think so," said the American. "Everyone has a good run and she's on a hot streak. But my
matches against her have been so close. You have to win everything to be dominant, like Martina
Hingis once did. Serena hasn't.

"It's hard for me to call Serena dominant when I feel like I should have won every match against her."

I found this on AOL and read it in an AP article as well. I wanted to read the full transcript if anyone could provide it for me.

:wavey: :wavey:

Yeah, I'm not sure if the interviewer asked her if she thought herself "inferior" to Serena.

That's why I'm looking for the full transcript. :)

Jennifer's matches with Serena have all been close, and you would expect her, being a great top player (which she is, like it or not guys) that she is going to believe that she can beat Serena, otherwise what is the point of playing the rest of the year!

The top players talk the talk - it's the way it is. Stop jumping on Jen every chance there is.

O.k., Manners is clearly bitter. It's not that serious, and the fact remains that she didn't win every match against Serena. But in reality, it doesn't matter what Jen says, we all know she has no class. I don't even know if getting the full transcript matters, everyone knows she says what she want's too. And most of the time it's rude and offensive, but the American public will pat her on the back and say, "We love our Jenny!". Sad.

Mark, I had no intention of bashing Cappy. Sometimes her comments have been taken out of context.

Personally, I didn't expect her to concede anything to Serena. But the comments preceding her remarks about the current world # 1 would have given me more context.

I'm all for Cappy relishing the competition! :)
