By 1994, at 18, she was out of the game and in and out of legal trouble -- cited for shoplifting and arrested for marijuana possession.Burned out and spiraling out of control like so many child stars before her, Capriati entered a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility shortly after her arrest.Capriati took to Twitter to vent her frustrations, having claimed that she was forced to end her career earlier than she had hoped because she “didn't have the high priced team of drs (sic) that found a way for me to cheat”.Capriati’s tweets were part of a mass series of 44 messages that saw the 39-year-old American rage against Sharapova’s use of meldonium as well as the wider usage of banned substances in sport.Capriati wanted her father, who was also her coach, present. The next year Capriati was dating a porn star by the name Dale Da Bone. No matter how hard you fight, they just never seem to go away.She also wanted to practice with her father after the official team practice was over. Which is why the trick to survival isn't defeating your demons, it's never giving up the fight.She achieved a string of successes, but began faltering in the mid-90s, and was arrested for possession of marijuana in 1994.
Sharapova now faces up to a two-year ban, though she is expected to be hit with a suspension of half that duration, but the 28-year-old Russian is already being questioned and criticised by former athletes, including leading names in tennis.But Da Bone says he doesn't believe Jen would try and kill herself.Think it's only the fellas seeking out adult film stars? Tennis wild child Jennifer Capriati had a lengthy relationship with Dal Dabone throughout most of the 2000s. Sidebar: This is the only male porn star featured on the list because-looking for a SFW photo of this dude caused by far the scariest sight we've seen all week.When Capriati overdosed on prescription pills last year, Da Bone attributed it to the fact that she missed tennis and that he returned to porn. One word comes to mind when I think about Jennifer Capriati playing in the 1990 French Open semifinal at 14 years old: phenom. They were with her when she became the youngest player ever to finish a season in the top 10.A single word is all that's needed to sum up Capriati's ascent to No. And the word that best describes why it took her so long: demons. They were with her when she battled back from drug addiction to claim her first Grand Slam title. Some of us do a better job of managing them than others.
