Hello guys!! I just found this tread!
I'm a huge Jennifer's fan since the 2002 Australian Open final.
Tennis wasn't very popular in Italy when I was young and I never watched it.
When Jennifer turned pro in 1990, I was only 7 years old and I didn't have any occasions to watch a tennis match. In the following years it was the same, until 2002.
In January of that year by pure chance I watched a couple of points of the Australian Open and I liked it. The women's final was on Saturday night Italian time and I recorded it on tape. I wanted Jen to win even if I had never seen her before, because I didn't like Hingis at all.
I was so impressed by Jen! I liked her way of playing, her fighting spirit, her attitude to never give up and I absolutely loved when hers screaming "C'mon" and hers yelling at the chair umpire or complaining about line calls.
At the end of 2002 I created her fansite at www.jennifercapriatitennis.com
, since I didn't find any Italian website about her (later on I added the English version, too).
In these years thinking about her has helped me to overcome some adversities and that's why I'm very grateful to her.
I really do hope that she could overcome her demons since, even if I'd love to see her back on the court, the most important thing is her happiness... she absolutely deserves it!!!
