Dont underestimate Capriati. She was said to be washed up and she won AO in 2001 getting herself to number one in the same year and being the World Champion. She is utterly unpredictable...

Hello, SerenaSlam!:)

To be frank, I don't like Serena much, especially she defeated her every time they played last year. Since the Australian Open, I definitely think she's the best player now, I have respect for her.

But I don't think I have to change my info about Capriati. No doubt she is in a slump or she may never come back to where she was in 2001. But to be a player she definitely has to set a goal to achieve, this is not impossible as she has been the No. 1 and Grand Slam winners. This is not a very unreachable goal. I dare say that Serena did set a high goal before as well, otherwise she would not have been as determined to be the best player in the world. And for me, as a Jen fans, I definitely hope she will achieve that goal.

Anyway, what I hope is good tennis!:)

im not getting myself washed up at all, i was just saying from the way she is playing, and loosing, eyes or no eyes, it really isn't an excuse to me, but "world champion" don't you call that a lil washed up? not to start any drama like u, but she got to number 1 by playing lots, not winning lots.

elena on her way out and on 2 a third set! this would be a good chance for chanda to get into the top 10! really it would, when is the last time she was here? and w/ the ranking post for 5-10 in the 2000's, chanda and lindsay i think have a good chance at 5 and 6 in the world by the end of the year, seeing that they both where injured!

Congrats to Elena for putting up a tough fight. Most others would wave a white flag when down 2 breaks in the 3rd, but she fought until the finish.
