Capriati elected to tennis Hall of Fame

NEWPORT, R.I. -- Jennifer Capriati has been elected to the International Tennis Hall of Fame after an up-and-down career that saw her go from teen prodigy status to off-court troubles to Grand Slam champion.
Capriati won the Australian Open in 2001 and 2002, and the French Open in 2001, along with a gold medal at the 1992 Olympics, and she reached No. 1 in the WTA rankings.
At age 14, she reached the 1990 French Open semifinals. Capriati was arrested in 1993 for shoplifting at a Florida mall, and again the next year for marijuana possession. She also spent more than a week in drug rehabilitation in 1994.
Capriati, the 2001 Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year, retired in 2004 with a career record of 430-176, including 14 singles titles.
