Capriati Sets Comeback

ESSEN, Germany () -- Organizers of the WTA Nokia Grand Prix have said that 19-year-old Jennifer Capriati, once No. 6 in the world, will start her comeback attempt Wednesday against Kristie Boogert of the Netherlands.


Capriati accepted a wild card invitation to the event after she was forced to withdraw last week at the Paris Open with a strained side muscle.


The 1992 Olympic champion left the tour after losing in the first round of the U.S. Open in 1993, and returned to school. She dropped out and was arrested in 1994 for marijuana possession.
