Riviera Beach, FL -- A spokeswoman for Jennifer Capriati says the former top-ranked tennis player is recovering from an "accidental overdose" of prescribed medication.

Lacey Wickline told The Associated Press on Monday that the 34-year-old Capriati is stable and a full recovery is expected. She declined to identify the medication.

The spokeswoman says Capriati was rushed to a South Florida hospital early Sunday morning. Wickline would not say how Capriati was found or who called emergency services.

Capriati won three majors in a career that was sidetracked by personal troubles.

Celebrity website TMZ first reported that Capriati was hospitalized.
