Jennifer Capriati (Tennis Player)


Jennifer Capriati is a former professional tennis player, who in 1990 became the youngest player to ever be ranked in the Women’s Tennis Association top ten. A gifted athlete from the time she was born, Capriati began watching her father play tennis as a toddler, beginning lessons by the time she was in kindergarten. After moving to Florida, she started taking lessons from Jimmy Evert, the father of former tennis star Chris Evert. In 1990 she made her professional debut at just 13 years old, winning her first professional tournament in Puerto Rico later that year. After several personal struggles including drug possession she took a break from the sport, returning in 2001 with an incredible comeback. She has won 14 professional tournaments throughout her career.
