Capriati in 3rd set tiebreakers

Does someone have Jen's 3rd set tiebreaker record? I know she lost to Monica in 91, Justine last year, and Elena this year. She also lost to Venus at Key Biscayne in 3rd set breaker. Has Jen ever won a 3rd set breaker?

Jennifer is 6-9 in third set tiebreakers having lost her last four (see below).

Ironically she's undefeated (5-0) in other slams that extended beyond 7-5 where matches are decided by a margin of two games. If only the US Open was played out in the third set Jennifer might have won a title or two here.
