Ellicott City's Beatrice Capra on Friday took the first step toward qualifying as a wild card for the Australian Open, putting her on the same road she took to the U.S. Open last summer, when she was the first Marylander to play in a Grand Slam main singles draw in more than 13 years. Capra won her first-round match Friday in a USTA eight-woman playoff in Atlanta, beating Shelby Rogers, 6-3, 6-2, in her first match since losing to Maria Sharapova in the third round in New York. "I'm so excited to be here," said Capra, 18, who attended McDonogh before moving to Florida three years ago to sharpen her focus on tennis.

Ellicott City's Beatrice Capra has been coping with firsts all week and handling them: She won a wildcard entry into the U.S. Open to claim her first main-draw spot in a Grand Slam tournament and then breezed through her first two matches beating two women ranked inside the Top 100, including one inside the Top 20. But Saturday afternoon in the Open's third round a handful of firsts were just too many for the 18-year-old. Playing on Arthur Ashe Stadium's Center Court for the first time against No. 14 seed and past Open champion Maria Sharapova in winds of approximately 25 mph, Capra went down, 6-0, 6-0. It was Sharapova's first career shutout at a Grand Slam and it was the first double-0 score in the third round of the Open since 1984 when Martina Navratilova beat Jennifer Mundel, 6-0, 6-0. Still, Capra was smiling when she entered the post-match interview room.

I looked up from my notebook to see the concerned face of Pam Shriver, someone I had been covering since she was a 15-year-old at McDonogh. She had helped me find my way around while covering Wimbledon, the French Open, the U.S. Open and more, as she rose to No. 3 in singles and formed a doubles partnership with Martina Navratilova that is still unmatched in women's tennis history. It was 2009 and we were together at her 24th Baltimore Tennis Challenge, an annual event she had founded to raise money for children's charities.

NEW YORK — Andy Roddick is out of the U.S. Open, and lately when Roddick is eliminated from a major tournament, it's the end of American men in the draw. But there was 19th-seeded Mardy Fish on Thursday, gliding around the Louis Armstrong Stadium court, using his sweet touch, able to time his volleys, willing to change the pace on his groundstrokes. Combined with a late-career decision to become supremely fit, the 28-year-old Fish looks rejuvenated, especially after his 7-5, 6-0, 6-2 victory over Pablo Cuevas in his second-round match.

The first time Baltimore's Pam Shriver went to the U.S. Open, she was an excited 16-year-old amateur. Her response to the pressure was to beat Martina Navratilova on her way to the women's singles final, where she lost a close match to Chris Evert. Quite a coming-out party. On Monday, during a break from her on-air broadcasting job for ESPN during this year's Open, Shriver recalled how hard it was to keep everything in check. The reason for her trip down memory lane is that for the first time since Shriver retired from professional tennis in 1997, the Baltimore area will have a woman playing in the main draw of a Grand Slam tournament today.
