I'm glad it was after the epěsode, as Jenn looks relaxed and happy in this pic. Yet she had a nice relationship with Sabatin since the very beginning or her career, I didn't know that she, or Gabriela for that matter, seemed to be close to Iva. Nice to see them chilling out.

Re: The Jennifer Capriati Appreciation Thread

Thank you guys, grazie!!!

I knew that Jennifer was one of the closest Iva's friends on the Tour.
She also invited Jen to her wedding in 2005 or 2006.

Re: The Jennifer Capriati Appreciation Thread

On 27 January, 2001 Jennifer defeated Hingis in the Australian Open final, winning her 1st career major.
I create a short tribute-video to recall the moment and celebrate the 10th anniversary of her triumph.
You can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K924QGPCFdc

The song is "Maestro" by Hans Zimmer.

Re: The Jennifer Capriati Appreciation Thread

I've always been a fan of Jennifer's, and enjoyed her feisty on-court competitive spirit. There was one incident that I thought was very funny, and stands out: her 1991 US Open Quarterfinal match against Gabriela Sabatini. Whenever Sabatini was getting ready to serve, Jennifer would squeak her sneakers incessantly. The tactic worked, as Sabatini was unnerved by Jennifer's strategy, committing numerous double faults in the process. As a result, Jennnifer disposed of Sabatini in straight sets, including a 2nd set tiebreak as Sabatini cracked under the pressure. To Sabatini's credit, she never used Jenn's squeaking as an excuse for losing. In my opinion, Jennifer would have beaten Sabatini in that match, whether she made noise with her sneakers or not. Does anyone else recall this match?. Your thoughts?.

Jennifer played better that day and also her will to win the match was bigger.

Re: The Jennifer Capriati Appreciation Thread

Jennifer was on fire at the 91 U.S Open. IMO she was a bit unlucky to lose that semifinal with Seles who was nearly unbeatable at the time, and ultimately probably win the U.S Open since she had beaten Navratilova on grass that summer and Martina played a relatively poor final anyway. Sabatini was not in her best form going into the U.S Open either.

Re: The Jennifer Capriati Appreciation Thread

As someone elsewhere wrote, perhaps Jen's likely induction will help her personally and professionally. I appreciate Jen's realness. I don't seem to recall her ever flashing fake smiles or pretending to be someone she's not. There are many negative episodes in Jen's life that the media have reported, but that's how life is- challenges, bad decisions, and struggles along with comebacks and successes and inspiration. It's not my place to expect anything from Jen, but I have a feeling that her likely honor next year will give Jen a chance to share more of herself with her fans.
