Capriati in court for stalking and assault case

Former tennis star Jennifer Capriati is due in court in south Florida in a stalking and battery case involving her ex-boyfriend.

The 37-year-old is accused of punching Ivan Brannan while he worked out at a gym on Valentine’s Day.

Authorities also say Capriati stalked Brannan for months earlier.

Capriati’s lawyer has denied the accusations.

A hearing in the case is set to take place in West Palm Beach and court records show Capriati is expected to attend.

Capriati is a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame who began her professional career at age 13.

She won a gold medal at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics and later won the French and Australian opens.

She also was arrested for shoplifting and marijuana possession in the 1990s.
