I just watched a video of her and Capriati's first round match at Roland Garros from 2002 and I was wondering what happened to her. She was a fairly decent player who's career high in singles was 52 but after 2005 she just dropped off the tour. Anyone know what happened other than a shoulder injury and whether or not she has plans for a comeback?

Wasn't she engaged to Taylor Dent? Or was that another american player?
Yes, she is engaged to Taylor Dent. He credits her with nursing him back to health after his back surgery and getting him through a tough time. He had to where a cast from the small of his back to the top of his chest for almost half a year. He calls her his rock.:couple: :smooch::hug:

That's Jennifer Hopkins, not Marissa Irvin. Taylor and Jennifer married a while ago.

Marissa quit the tour because she didn't feel there was a future for her in pro tennis anymore. She went back to UCLA to get her degree in political science.
