Jennifer Capriati headlines the Tennis HOF Class

Honestly gang, I don’t know if we ever will do a Tennis list on our site as we are not certain of the interest. As of this writing, it is has never come up within internal discussions, nor has it among our visitors.

 

With that said, the International Tennis Hall of Fame has announced their latest class which was headlined by Jennifer Capriati. Although she won three Grand Slam tournaments, she is likely best known for her off court demons that likely cost her years of her playing career. Although we admit we are not tennis experts, we have to question whether three Grand Slam wins and fourteen tournament victories is really a Hall of Fame career.

She is joined by three time French Open winner, Gustavo Kuerten and master player Manuel Orantes, tennis industry executive Mike Davies and wheelchair champion Randy Snow, who was honoured posthumously.

Capriati doesn't seem like a HOF'er to me, her success was limited by her demons. She did win the Olympic Gold Medal one year when she wasn't really supposed to compete for it, so the ability was there. The class is not exciting to me as a casual observer. Kuerten was a clay court specialist. I plead ignorant about the rest of the class so it's not fair for me to comment further on them.

    It seemingly took forever but after nomination after nomination the Stooges finally got into the Hall.

Together, they…
