The summons indicates that she "actually and intentionally touch[ed] and [struck]" Brannan and "willfully, maliciously and repeatedly follow[ed], harass[ed]" him.

A police report said that while Brannan was working out, 36-year-old Capriati "started screaming" at him and punched him four times in the chest "with a closed fist."After a yoga instructor intervened, Brannan locked himself in the men's locker room and called emergency services.

He told police Capriati had been harassing him since they broke up in February 2012. The three-time Grand Slam champion, who won Olympic gold in Barcelona in 1992, has not been arrested.

A publicist for Capriati has dismissed as an "over-exaggeration" the facts in the police report based on Brannan's account.

Capriati was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame last year, but her career was overshadowed by personal problems, including incidents of shoplifting and drugs.

Jennifer Capriati, now 36, has had a tough road since her days as a teen tennis prodigy and a stint atop the world rankings.

Although she's a three-time major winner and a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame, she's had difficulties off the court, with arrests ranging from shoplifting to marijuana possession. Capriati now faces battery and stalking charges in Palm Beach County, Florida stemming from an incident with an ex-boyfriend on Valentine's Day.

According to North Palm Beach police, Capriati approached her ex-boyfriend, Ivan Brannan, at a gym and began screaming at him.

When he tried to leave by going to the men's locker room, Capriati allegedly blocked his path and punched at his chest.

She was charged with cannabis possession in 1994 and spent time in a drug rehabilitation clinic before struggling to return to the game.
