Anyone have any idea what has happened to Jennifer Capriatti? Is she injured or what?

Found this on CNN.com, dated Apr 1, 2005:

Q. What's going on with Jennifer Capriati, knowing that she had surgery on her shoulder and wonder if any she will be back with us soon? I really miss her playing. Not sure how long she be with us in playing and do hope that she can get back on her feet again as we do need her.
Thanks, Fredo

A. Capriati at her best is a joy to watch Fredo. Like Lindsay Davenport, she has an amazing amount of weight on her ground strokes, so after the ball bounces it really moves through (rather than bouncing up), making her extremely difficult to beat from the baseline. As I'm sure you know, Capriati has been out of action for 5 months now and had surgery in January -- but she's obviously not quite ready to return, after pulling out of the Pacific Life Open. She's probably only got a few years left as a pro tennis player if her shoulder holds up -- she's now 28 (a veteran in tennis!) and has been on tour for an astonishing 15 years!
