Item description for On the Court with ... Jennifer Capriati (Matt Christopher Sports Biographies) by Matt Christopher & Glenn Stout...
hen Jennifer Capriati began her professional tennis career in 1989 at the age of 14, she was an immediate phenom.

But shortly thereafter, the pressure of life in the spotlight began to take its toll.The story of her subsequent fall from grace and phoenix-like return to win the Australian and French Opens in 2001 serves as a rousing reminder that sometimes failure can inspire success.
