Pro tennis is littered with fragile young women who tried to play too much too soon. But at Pam Shriver's 12th First Union/Signet Bank Tennis Challenge on Tuesday at the Baltimore Arena, fans will see three survivors.No. 3 Amanda Coetzer, No. 5 Monica Seles and No. 28 Chanda Rubin are young women who began playing on the pro tour as teen-agers and appear here at a time when each seems headed for new frontiers.In Coetzer, who began on the tour at 16, the charity event has come up with one of the hottest players on the tour -- her first-round defeat in the Chase Championships in New York last week notwithstanding.

LAKELAND, Fla. -- There are numbers, there are statistics and then there are opinions. Numbers don't lie, statistics can and opinions usually do. Such are life's lessons as experienced by Brady Anderson. At 36, the Orioles center fielder is entering his 13th major-league season and ninth as a starter, having constructed the most impressive offensive season of any American League leadoff hitter last year. The numbers say Anderson enjoyed the highest on-base percentage (.404) of his career and swiped his age with 36 stolen bases.

PARIS -- Sometimes, Steffi Graf looked as puzzled as the crowd at Stade Roland Garros. Time after time, her usually stunning slice backhand dipped into the net and her steady forehand went long.Time after time, she stuck her tongue into her cheek and made it obvious that she could not believe what was happening to her any more than the French can believe what is happening in their classic tennis tournament."It was a terrible match," said Graf, the second seed and two-time defending women's champion, after losing her French Open quarterfinal to Amanda Coetzer, 6-1, 6-4. "I just don't seem to have any self-confidence.
