Tennis phenom was rushed to a Florida hospital early Sunday morning after paramedics responded to a call for a possible overdose.
Capriati, who won 14 career titles, including three Grand Slams and a gold medal at the 1992 Olympics, was rushed to a nearby hospital in Riviera Beach, Fla.
The spokeswoman says Capriati was rushed to a South Florida hospital early Sunday morning. Wickline would not say how Capriati was found or who called emergency services.
“When I looked in the mirror I actually saw this distorted image … I was so ugly and fat I just wanted to kill myself really. At the end of a match, I couldn’t wait to get off court. Mentally, I’d just lost it. I wasn’t happy with myself, my tennis, my life, my coaches, my friends.”
Capriati became a tennis sensation at the young age of 14 and made the French Open semifinals in 1990. Jennifer won the Women’s Singles gold medal at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.
