The Clay Court apartments, subsidized housing once known for open-air drug markets, had taken a turn for the better in the past two years, with the help of a new owner, extra security guards and a nearly $5 million infusion for renovation of the rundown buildings. But the violence of the past caught up to the East Baltimore neighborhood this week - two men were killed within 24 hours in the same block on the eastern edge of the complex near Broadway and Gay Street in the shadows of Johns Hopkins Hospital.

PARIS - You could feel Rafael Nadal's joie de vivre from the moment he walked through the green metal door that is the players entrance to Court 9 for a practice session yesterday with his Argentine amigo David Nalbandian. If John McEnroe's deep affection for tennis was grounded in some mysterious and compulsive need for confrontation, Nadal's is pure and simple. He strode onto the well-groomed red clay bantering and smiling, a man in love not only with the game but with life, then spent the next hour flogging balls and racing, with wondrous swiftness, to shots most players only dream of returning.
