Herb Krickstein has been there before. Long before Morgan Pressel, his granddaughter, played in her first golf tournament or even qualified for the U.S. Women's Open at age 12 or won her first professional major championship at age 18, Krickstein understood the nature of what it takes to be a sports prodigy. Krickstein's son, Aaron, was one nearly a quarter-century ago. Aaron Krickstein became the youngest male tennis player to win a professional event at age 16 in Tel Aviv in 1983, and would go on to have a productive 13-year career.

PARIS - They both won on a gloriously warm, fan-friendly opening day at the French Open, but they couldn't have looked more different at the finish line. First, Serena Williams, who exited the stadium court with a wide, self-satisfied smile after a brisk 54-minute yawner. Two and a half hours later, Vince Spadea walked slowly off Court 4 looking as if he had been run over by a 20-wheel rig. "I've got to eat something. Got to get a shower and eat something," Spadea mumbled with a blank stare as he headed for the men's locker room after steeling himself in the stretch run of a tense struggle with Irakli Labadze of Georgia to produce his sixth consecutive five-set victory.

NEW YORK -- The young Martina Navratilova doesn't play a match like this. She gets up a break and seizes the moment. She piles point on top of point and leaves an opponent gasping for air.But Navratilova is 34 now, and her confidence is as fragile as her serve. She punches the air with a fist when things go well, but when she floats a second serve and misses a volley, she hangs her head in disgust.Still, she remains a factor at the U.S. Open.Yesterday, she struggled in a fourth-round match but finally defeated Manuela Maleeva-Fragniere, 7-6 (7-5)

WASHINGTON -- A lot of folks show up at a tennis tournament, watch a couple of name players whack a ball around in the quarterfinals or later and figure that's all there is to the show.It wasn't until last night that the marquee names of the NationsBank Classic, Wimbledon champion Andre Agassi and John McEnroe, finally hauled their acts onto the stadium court. Meanwhile, Jimmy Brown swears he's been here at least a month."My legs just got tired in that third set," the 207th-ranked player in the world sighed after he had given top-seeded Petr Korda all he could handle before succumbing, 4-6, 6-2, 6-3. "It was my fifth or sixth match in the last few days."
