Jennifer Capriati's tennis career - and her teenage life - took a number of twists and turns. She started as a teenage prodigy, was later sidetracked with off-court troubles, rebounded to become a three-time Grand Slam champion and, now, her journey is complete with her induction into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Capriati and several others were inducted into the Hall during a 90-minute ceremony Saturday. Joining Capriati were recently retired player Gustavo Kuerten, master player Manuel Orantes, tennis industry executive Mike Davies and wheelchair champion Randy Snow, who was honored posthumously. In a tear-filled acceptance speech, the 36-year old Capriati remembered her great moments in the game and touched on some of her troubles off the court. Capriati was presented by 2009 Hall of Fame inductee Monica Seles.
