Jennifer Capriati Rushed to Hospital, Recovering from Suspected Overdose

by at . Comments

Former tennis star Jennifer Capriati was rushed to a Florida hospital yesterday, following a suspected drug overdose.

According to TMZ, Capriati - who made her professional debut at the age of 13 and won three Grand Slam titles - was taken away by paramedics who responded to a call from a hotel in Riviera Beach.

Her family says Jennifer is "recuperating at a South Florida hospital from an accidental overdose of medication prescribed to Jen by her personal physicians."

Capriati was arrested for marijuana possession in 1994 and spent time in rehab before a return to tennis a couple years later. in July 2007, she left the game again and admitted to depression, saying:

"When I stopped playing, that's when all this came crumbling down. 'If I don't have [tennis], who am I? What am I? I was just alive because of this. I've had to ask, 'Well, who is Jennifer? What if this is gone now?' I can't live off of this the rest of my life.'"

We hope she finds the answers and makes a full recovery.
