Another tough match for Jenny, she was down 2-4 and break point for 2-5 in the first and that fought back.
A struggle, yes, but the stats don't look too bad at all. I'm guessing she met a qualifier running hot for the first few games and then got it together
Well done girl :worship:

I watched it LIVE! Not a great win but a win. I am not afraid of Jen going out soon because she played two opponents she didn`t really know. It is always the same, the top seeded players have difficulties in the first rounds because they have to get into a tournament, they don`t really know their opponents in the opening rounds and later when they face No. 9 - 16 seeds and everybody expects close matches they win easily. I think the first close matches will happen in quarterfinals with players like Jen, Lindsay, Mauresmo, Venus and Serena facing each other.
A must win for Jen and good to see she won! :bounce: I am pleased for today! :kiss:

Go ahead Jen, another tough one but you pulled through which is all that matters!!!
On to round three!!! :worship::bounce:
May 27th, 2004, 01:50 PM
She was tested again, but she's not the only one having a relatively hard time advancing. Good job pulling it off Jen!

Awesome match Jenn! (especially the 2nd set ;)) That was easier than the last. Let's take Bovina/Groenefeld even easier :)

Q. Speaking of America, could you talk about America and Jennifer Capriati, the Olympics. What are your hopes, your thoughts on that?
JENNIFER CAPRIATI: Yeah, I mean, I really haven't thought about it too much. You know, as it gets closer, kind of right now I'm just so focused on my game and trying to improve things, just try to play better tennis, to even see if I'll even make it, you know, in the Olympics basically to be chosen.
You know, I haven't made any decision yet on what you would do, if I would for sure go. It's something I really haven't thought about. I think it's something we've got to wait and see what happens, too. .
Q. Last week, Lisa Raymond was poignant in talking about how she and Billie Jean had healed their relationship after a tough go. Is there a chance in the near future you might play Fed Cup again?
JENNIFER CAPRIATI: Never say "never" or "no" to that. You know, when it comes, the decision to make, I'll make it then. I'm not ruling it out.
