TMZ spoke with Capriati's father, who says she's recovering well.

Capriati was the Tracy Austin of the early 1990s, turning pro at the unprecedented age of 13. She was a semifinalist at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in 1991, took a break from the tour in the mid-'90s and eventually coming back to win the Australian Open in 2001.

She has 15 career titles, including three Grand Slams. She also won a gold medal at the 1992 Olympics. But she went through some tough times in her late teens.
