KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. -- At Jennifer Capriati's request, the 1999 Outkast song "Bombs Over Baghdad'' was played on the stadium public-address system before her most recent match at the Nasdaq-100 Open.

"I like the song, and I wanted to support the troops,'' Capriati said Tuesday through a WTA Tour spokesman.

Stadium court producer Bob Ruf said he previewed the rap song and was reluctant to play it. Ruf then listened to the song with a tour official, and they found a one-minute segment that they decided wouldn't offend anyone.

The chorus to the song goes: "Don't pull the thang out unless you plan to bang, bombs over Baghdad. ... Don't even bang unless you plan to hit something, bombs over Baghdad.''

A Nasdaq official said the tournament received no complaints about the song. Capriati beat fellow American Sarah Taylor in the match Monday, 6-1, 6-0.

Andy Roddick requested the Bruce Springsteen hit "Born in the USA'' for one of his matches earlier in the tournament
