A Quick Defense of Capriati-Jen's getting a lot of heat for not knowing what Title IX was. Since it's the federal regulation about women's scholastic sports equity, it would be better known by females who played sports at their school. What I don't think too many people who've laid into her for her lack of knowledge remember is that she didn't play tennis in high school or junior high, moving into the pros at 14, IIRC. It wasn't part of her world. If you don't follow college or high school female athletics or are a serious policy wonk, Title IX is a non-issue.
