Is Jennifer Capriati ever coming back, or did she retire? Inquiring minds want to know.
-- Clayton R. West, Lafayette, Ind.

Word is that the Capstress -- who turned 30 this week -- desperately wants to return and give it one more shot, but she can't seem to get her shoulder quite right. She's undergone two operations, but it's still unfit for playing. Meanwhile, she is staying in shape.

Here is another article that is very positive on Jen's comeback!!

TOO MANY ROUTS

Until then, the first week promises enticing matchups. Top to bottom, men's tennis is stronger than ever. The women have the same depth problem as their counterparts in college hoops. Too many early matches are like Duke's 96-27 dismissal of Southern in the first round of the women's NCAA Tournament.

And too many finals are like Maria Sharapova's 6-1, 6-2 dismantlement of Elena Dementieva last week in Indian Wells, Calif.

The comeback of Martina Hingis is the best thing, in the past two years, to happen to women's tennis, which is brimming with comeback stories -- even Mary Pierce is, or was, back! -- but is devoid of up-and-comers. Next, we can look forward to the third -- or is it fourth? -- comeback of Jennifer Capriati.
Meanwhile, five men age 21 or under reached the fourth round in Indian Wells. Marcos Baghdatis, Andy Murray and Richard Gasquet are all transfusing new blood into the men's tour, which suffered for years with a boring parade of ball pounders.

Here, right off the bat, Nadal plays his best friend and Mallorca neighbor, Carlos Moya, today. Talk about a duel in the sun.

''Five minutes before the court, we are very good friends; five minutes after the court, we are very good friends,'' Nadal said Thursday as he twiddled with his long hair. ``On the court, I respect him, he respects me. But [it] is the job, is the game, no?''
