It just keeps getting worse for Jennifer Capriati.
Since 1994 Capriati has made headlines not only for her stunning tennis achievements, but for legal problems, drug issues and now a domestic incident.
On Friday the Olympic gold medalist was charged with stalking and battery, although she has not been arrested. Police claim she punched her ex-boyfriend on Valentines Day.
Now Serena Williams has said that Capriati was happy when Serena lost in Australia! According to the New York Times's Ben Rothenberg, Serena was asked after her third round victory in Miami whether she had heard from Capriati.

Here is a quickie to keep you updated on some of the stories floating around the web.....
I guess when you are SUPER wealthy you can spend your money on anything. This involves a donkey, cheese, and Novak Djokovic.....and no, this isn't a bad joke.
Caroline Wozniacki better watch her back..... Impersonating Serena Williams by adding some "junk to her trunk" the first time was kinda funny, the second time was just kinda rude. I know Caro is "Miss Sunshine" and all, but I think that there is a very real possibility that if it happens again there will be a "girl fight!" Don't mess with Re Re.
Andy Murray says he is going to quit swearing on the court. That's like Roger Federer saying he is going to start being humble.
That's all folks! Let us know about any other interesting stories you've heard around the web!

Tennis players are constantly the subject of scrutiny when it comes to what they wear on the court. Male or female, if you’re a top player, you can bet everyone will be giving the thumbs up or down to your Nike duds when a Grand Slam rolls around. Looking at on-court photos, we can deduce that the likes of Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova and Roger Federer all have spectacular style.
But do they really?
Off-court might tell a different tale. Free from the restrictions of sponsorship, tennis players can choose exactly what they want to wear. And that’s not always a good thing.
On The Go Tennis will be analysing the off-court style of a top player every week. Shoes, earrings, cardigans... nothing will go unnoticed.
This week we will take a look at the ever-changing style of Serena Williams.
October is right around the corner, and that means it will soon be Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
If you didn't notice, last month Feliciano Lopez was spotted wearing pink wristbands during a match and that is because Wilson Tennis is offering stylish ways to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month and The Breast Cancer Research Foundation through their HOPE Collection.

Well, well, well.......what do we have here?
There was a rumor Serena Williams was dating Bulgarian tennis player Grigor Dimitriov after they were seen rooting for each other at the Sony Ericsson Open, but with these new pics it obvious that Grigor and Serena are just friends because she is dating his coach, Patrick Mouratoglou!!! Patrick has also been coaching Serena since her loss at the French Open. They look quite comfy, no?
