The Moment: When tennis player Jennifer Capriati, just 16 years old, won the gold medal in Women's Singles in an upset against well-known Steffi Graf (Barcelona 1992).
BTW: Where you rank in the world as a tennis player depends on how many points each tournament win is worth. Interestingly, winning the Women's Singles championship at Wimbledon three weeks before London will net you 2,000 points, but securing a gold medal at the 2012 Games only gets you 685 points.
