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.

COLLEGE PARK -- Pikesville's Paul Burgin was the only player from the Baltimore metropolitan area to advance to a championship final at the state tennis tournament Saturday at the University of Maryland. Burgin, the second seed, faced top seed Timothy Klanke of Walt Whitman. Burgin won the first set 6-1, then lost 5-7 and 1-6 in the second and third sets, respectively. He was hampered by leg cramps, and at one point in the third set, he fell to the court and had to be helped by a trainer.

WIMBLEDON, England -- The place is called Roehampton. Sixteen grass courts scuffed with brown splotches. Players, if they dare, can change in a locker room by a swimming pool, and then sit on a grassy knoll, waiting for their matches to be called.Fans wander around the courts. There are no ushers because ntickets are needed. A freebie in the landof eight strawberries for $3. A loudspeaker blares in the background, an announcer rTC calling out pairings and results.This is the site of the Wimbledon qualifier, a sudden-deattournament where some careers arelaunched, and others are ended.

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- In 1986, 34-year-old media upstart Dean Singleton hit the major leagues, buying the prize-winning but ailing Dallas Times Herald in his home state of Texas. Dave Burgin, who was to become editor, recalls walking down the back stairs of the newspaper to his car after the news conference and finding Singleton in the alley at a loading dock. "There stood Dean looking up from the alley into the dock, his glasses were off and he was wiping a tear from his eyes. He was shaken by what he had done, the magnitude of it. He said, `I just spent $120 million, and I don't know where to go.'" Burgin, a friend, took Singleton to a hotel where he ordered a bottle of the finest brandy.

The gloom was everywhere at the Bare Hills Tennis Club off Falls Road yesterday.In the wake of the death of tennis pro Maury Schwartzman, 81, from congestive heart failure on Sunday, there was a void that may never be filled.Schwartzman was the dean of the local teaching pros. For 60 years he taught those beautiful, flowing strokes to Baltimore kids, and later to their kids, and, in some cases, to the grandkids of his original students.On a Sunday 53 years ago this month, Schwartzman and fellow Baltimorean Malcolm Fox were giving a clinic for the midshipmen at the Naval Academy when an officer broke in and terminated the proceedings.

The year was 1985. Pam Shriver, having overcome injuries that threatened her career, was back to No.3 in the world. Elise Burgin, having graduated Stanford the previous year, was up to No.22. And Andrea Leand, who had been ranked as high as 13th in 1982, was going off to Princeton.If Baltimore wasn't the center of women's tennis, it was certainly close. But the three players who helped put a city known for its crab cakes and baseball team on the world tennis map believe it won't likely happen again.
