Jennifer Capriati ‘rushed to hospital after drugs overdose’

Troubled tennis star Jennifer Capriati has been rushed to hospital in the U.S. after a suspected drugs overdose, according to reports this morning.

Paramedics responded to a call from a hotel in Riviera Beach, Florida, early yesterday morning, gossip website TMZ.com has reported.

The 34-year-old’s father apparently told the website that his daughter is ‘recovering well’.

Capriati, who was dubbed the ‘Can’t Miss Kid’ by the American press for her sizzling talent, won 14 career titles, including three Grand Slams.

But her astonishing ability on the court was always tempered by a troubled story of drug abuse, binge-eating, insecurity and thoughts of suicide.

Pushed by her parents – particularly her father – she turned professional at age 13.
