The International Tennis Hall of Fame will induct Jennifer Capriati and Gustavo Kuerten today in Newport, RI. In advance of the ceremony, the New York Times’ Straight Sets blog wrote a really nice piece about the prodigy-turned-bust-turned-champion.
Jennifer Capriati has stayed away from the commentators’ booth, and has not worked — at least publicly — with any current players on a coaching or advisory basis. She has rarely attended tournaments or tennis social events, instead sticking around the Tampa home she owns.
"I haven’t seen her in years," said Navratilova, who played doubles with Capriati as recently as 2002. "Maybe the last time was three years ago at the Open," she said referring to the United States Open.
