The 36-year-old three-time major winner allegedly assaulted Ivan Brannan on Valentine's Day while he was working out at a gym in North Palm Beach, Florida.
According to reports in the United States, Capriati has been issued a summons to appear before a judge at Palm Beach Gardens courthouse on April 17.
Capriati's attorney, Richard Lubin, on Thursday night insisted his client had done nothing wrong and vowed to clear her name.
He told the Palm Beach Post: "Unfortunately, false accusations against celebrities is an almost daily occurrence in the world we live in.
"Jennifer Capriati is innocent of these charges, and we intend to vigorously defend her name against this nonsense."
