WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Dec. 17 trial date has been set in Palm Beach County for former tennis star Jennifer Capriati in a stalking and battery case involving her ex-boyfriend.

The 37-year-old Capriati 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. The charges are misdemeanors.

Capriati’s attorney calls the accusations false. The trial date was set at a hearing Friday that Capriati did not 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 was arrested for shoplifting and marijuana possession in the 1990s.
