Williams Says Capriati Happy She Lost

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. 

"No. Last I heard she was happy I lost in Australia. So yeah I don't really know. Shocking, but yeah…" 

Serena did not elaborate, choosing instead to wish Capriati the best.

 "I always tell her mom to tell her I say hi. I honestly hope the best for her. I hope she's OK. She has a good heart ...I have always been really nice to her, though, and I see her around in Palm Beach, and her mom."

Choosing to take the high road is obviously the best move for Serena. Capriati has battled chronic depression for a number of years, and here at On The Go Tennis we wish her the best for the future.

UPDATE:

Serena's comments were possibly inspired by a tweet Capriati wrote during the Australian Open. Capriati wrote:

"Maybe tennis will become interesting again. I’ve seen enough Serena to last a life time..lol"

Capriati was then hit with the flood of abuse. She claimed the tweet was simply a joke. 

Social media may bring players and fans closer together, but there is no doubt there is a dangerous side to the Internet. Jokes can be taken offensively, and flippant comments made months ago can come back to haunt you later.

Your story is incorrect. Serena did not tweet it. She was asked about Capriati while taking to media.

Sticks and stones...Serena is living an incredible life. If Jennifer wants to hit below the belt, so to speak, it shows just where she's coming from, lower place in life. As for her tweet, it may well be a case of sour grapes. After all, Serena's career is still ongoing. Too bad -- for Jennifer.
