Centre Court, Melbourne Park, 27 January

Jennifer Capriati began her professional career as a 14-year old. Eleven years later she won her first grand slam title, the Australian Open in January. A tremendous achievement, but with Capriati the story is even more extrordinary. After great initial success, her game and life fell apart, and after a series of unfortunate episodes - including being arressted for cannabis possession and shoplifting - she quit the sport at the age of 17. She returned 3 years later and her comeback was completed on a sunny day in Melbourne. 'Dreams do come true if you keep believing in yourself' she told the crowd, 'Anything can happen.'
