Jennifer Capriati charged with stalking, battery



Jennifer Capriati, now 36, has had a tough road since her days as a teen tennis prodigy and a stint atop the world rankings.
Although she's a three-time Major winner and a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame, she's had difficulties off the court, with arrests ranging from shoplifting to marijuana possession.

And the problems continue. Capriati now faces battery and stalking charges in Palm Beach County, Florida stemming from an incident with an ex-boyfriend on Valentine's Day. According to North Palm Beach police, Capriati approached her ex-boyfriend, Ivan Brannan, at a gym and began screaming at him. When he tried to leave by going to the men's locker room, Capriati allegedly blocked his path and punched at his chest.

The summons indicates that she "actually and intentionally touch[ed] and [struck]" Brannan and "willfully, maliciously and repeatedly follow[ed], harass[ed]" him.
According to county records, Capriati has been summoned to appear before a judge on April 17. However, she has not been arrested.




I'd say she'd be a fair ride

Nadal was always going to be vulnerable in the first rounds when the grass is still in good condition. In semis and final, it's more dirt than grass, which helps Nadal immensely.

She is ugly when it comes to Polish women. Much better babes you can see on the streets around here. ;).

Great that she will be in the final (sorry, but I don't believe Lisicki to do anything worthwhile to stop her from reaching Final once more :D).

Who will she play in the final though?

Also Kubot vs Janowicz match tomorrow is more exciting. Wishing for Janowicz to go through (as he is from same city I am) and he has better chances against Murray in Semi than Kubot imo :).

And heard Murray is slightly injured, is promising news to see Polish final (both in women and men :D).

great :D.

04-07-13, 05:04 PM
Much rather Lisciki won. At one point they showed the winner stats. 55 to Lisciki and 15 to Radwanska. I prefer offensive players rather than players who just try to get it back and hope the other player messes up.

Alan
04-07-13, 05:08 PM
I could understand if you said that about Gilles Simon, but come on, Radwanska is the best all-court player in the women's game since Hingis and perhaps Novotna.

Coys
04-07-13, 05:40 PM
I'm not saying she isn't a good player. She's extremely intelligent and has a lot of shots in her locker. She knows she can't hit the ball as hard as a lot of players so she works with what she's got. All i was saying is that i much prefer players who go for it and hit a lot of winners.

It's that time of the year again... Wimbledon!

Who's watching? I've tried following all of the GB entrants with interest.

First one up yesterday was Liam Broady against Matosevic. He was two sets down and then pulled it out of the bag to win 3:2. Very good game of Tennis to watch.

Started watching a bit of Konta against Sharapova but she was getting battered and then had to do some work.

Didn't see Naomi Broady play so can't judge but she's another who was beaten.

Heather Watson was a set down last night, had a terrible start but managed to tie it before the game was suspended due to bad light. Looking forwards to seeing how that one pans out today.

Got a stream going from the BBC website at the moment and watching Kyle Edmund against Alexandr Dolgopolov. It's a bit like watching Broady yesterday, Edmund has gone two sets down and seems to have a shoulder problem. He's started well in the third set but Dolgopolo has broke his serve so it's 4:2 to the Ukrainian as I type.

Laura Robson and Andy Murray are in action later too.

Mark
30-06-15, 01:41 PM
And Alexandr Dolgopolov wins in 3 sets. Think that shoulder injury was too much for Edmund which was a shame.

Laura Robson is up next!

Turned over to Brydan Klein who is up against Andreas Seppi on court 18. He's losing by two sets already as well. Not a good day for the Brits so far!

ebfatz
30-06-15, 01:42 PM
Broady was a great match yesterday.

Nice start for a Brit on day 1. Crowd was loving it.

Mark
30-06-15, 01:47 PM
Definitely was. I'd missed the first set so I tuned in to see the comeback take place.

Don't think I like the look of this Klein player. Attitude seems all wrong for me.

08-03-16, 10:21 AM
Massive oversight from her management team not to look into the new list of banned substances that was released on the 1st January though. Surely they would have known she's been taking a certain drug for 10 years and thought to double check the list for it?

ivan lendl griup :noidea:


didnt know any of the other three players in the group and it was a 1/2 shot so i imagine he should progress handily enough.


tennis fans here though, is murray likely to beat him if they both progrees to the finals stage?

Mark
06-07-17, 10:52 AM
Anybody watching the Wimbledon?

Murray has a bit of a hip injury but no trouble in getting to the 3rd round so far. I caught Heather Watson's game yesterday in which she won the first set 6:0, impressive stuff. She's equalled her best run ever at Wimbledon.

Laura Robson very disappointing in going out in the first round on Monday too - Gather she's lost a lot of confidence and form though after injuries.

Redknapp69
06-07-17, 07:23 PM
Not really watching but working from home tomorrow and next week so will do then :)

Will pop to Wimbledon for beers next week as well on Wed I think - sounds like they have massive screen in central wimbledon somewhere. The pubs/restuarants are brilaiint for these 2 weeks and "fanoir" EVERYWHERE to look at :love:


Watson and Robson built up too much - lot of pressiure for youn un's

02-07-18, 01:48 PM

Think Murray thought 5 sts will be a killer and just traiun up and go hard at US Open (and hasn't he got a young kid now :lol:)

No idea who wonem's winner will be - healthy competition there and seems to change a lot

Fed must be amongst favourites - amazing how he is still top of the treee given his age - shows how much he still thrives on it!

People giving him shit for getting emotional about retiring need a look at themselves. Yes, he has 80 odd million in the bank but top top end sports people, especially in individual sports, essentially think of nothing but the sport they play from the day they start playing to day they finish. Thats going to be tough to accept not matter who you are.

Mark
12-01-19, 12:50 PM
He'll certainly be at a loss as to what to do with himself beyond retirement. May be a good idea for him to become a coach?

Hopefully he can get through the current grand slam and get to Wimbledon and bow out there. Would be a nice way to end (if he isn't embarrassed in a bad defeat of course!).
