Australian Open: Capriati says she can hang on

Jennifer Capriati has said she hopes she can hang on for another week at the Australian Open, despite her hip strain.

Jennifer Capriati has said she hopes she can hang on for another week at the Australian Open, despite her hip strain.

She said after her match against Greece's Eleni Daniilidou that her hip strain was not causing her undue concern.

Capriati won the match 6-2 3-6 6-1.

‘‘Hopefully I can hang in for another week,’’ she said. ‘‘I had the other leg taped just because I had a bit of a skin rash.

‘‘She was a tough opponent. I had no idea what she was going to do, but in the third set I didn’t let her play. I stepped it up and played aggressive.

‘‘Maybe it’s good for me to have this kind of match.’’
