WIMBLEDON, England - - In a daunting scenario, a 17-year-old from Ellicott City stayed in a threadbare London-area dorm for two weeks without television and without the Internet. The thing is, she adored it. Beatrice Capra loved not so much the dorm with its bed, desk and bathroom - "It's kind of lonely," she said - but her first absorption of the wonderland known as the All England Club, where she reached the third round of the junior girls singles and the semifinals of the doubles. Laurie Capra said her daughter has gone from being ranked No. 200 in the world to the top 20 after Wimbledon.

PARIS - Guillermo Coria, David Nalbandian, Juan Ignacio Chela, Gaston Gaudio. There was adequate warning before the first ball was struck a week ago that the time had come for the Grand Slam-starved Argentines to overtake the Spanish at the French Open. It's now close to happening and, though there are still a few matches to reach the final four, it's possible there could be an all-Argentine semifinal with Nalbandian vs. Gaudio in the upper half of the draw and Coria playing Chela in the lower half.

NEW YORK - It wasn't the first time Roger Federer had sent a rocket shot at David Nalbandian, but this one had the biggest impact. No one has ever claimed that Nalbandian, who is one of the finest baseline players in the game, is a great volleyer, and on break point to end the second set Federer lashed one at his Argentine opponent, who was at the net. Too fast. Too hard. Too tough to handle. "I thought about taking the racket away," said Nalbandian, who thought for an instant the force of the shot might send it beyond the baseline.

NEW YORK - There were a few nasty remarks, a 12-minute injury timeout that somehow was legal, a record number of double-faults from Elena Dementieva - and then, in the second of two stirring women's semifinals at the U.S. Open, perhaps the gutsiest display by Maria Sharapova in her young career. Six mostly gripping sets and 4 hours and 17 minutes of contentious and courageous tennis after it began yesterday, Kim Clijsters of Belgium and Mary Pierce of France were through to the final. Any celebrating had to have been brief or nonexistent.

In Beijing, Serena Williams and Elena Dementieva dueled in the Olympic women's singles quarterfinals with a gold medal at stake. Tomorrow at 1st Mariner Arena, Williams will once again be thundering blazing serves and Dementieva answering with wicked forehands. In China, Dementieva won that quarterfinals match and ultimately the gold medal, and Williams and her sister, Venus, won gold in women's doubles. When Williams and Dementieva play this time, though, the winners will be the young people served by the local charities that benefit from the proceeds of the PNC Tennis Classic, an annual charity event led by former Baltimore County resident and tennis pro Pam Shriver and presented by The Baltimore Sun. The Williams-Dementieva exhibition match is the centerpiece attraction of a tennis card that will also feature Orioles Adam Jones and Garrett Olson in a doubles match.

Elena Dementieva refused to take credit for Russia's Fed Cup victory over France. Perhaps she should. The Russians won the title for the second straight year yesterday. Dementieva won both her singles matches in the best-of-five final and teamed with Dinara Safina to capture the deciding doubles for a 3-2 victory. The Russian duo beat Mary Pierce and Amelie Mauresmo, 6-4, 1-6, 6-3. "It's not Dementieva's victory," Dementieva said. "We win as a team and lose as a team." In the day's singles matches, Pierce rallied past Anastasia Myskina, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2, to even the series at 2-2. Dementieva defeated Mauresmo in the opener, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2. "She carried the team this weekend," Mauresmo said.

Pam Shriver, who will stage her 23rd annual Charity Tennis Classic here Nov. 21, has been going through records with her staff, trying to determine whether there has ever been such a star-studded cast assembled for the main match at this event. "We've had players who have been top-five and better players," said Shriver, who will announce today that Olympic gold medalist and world No. 4 Elena Dementieva has agreed to play U.S. Open winner and world No. 1 Serena Williams in the 7 p.m. match at 1st Mariner Arena.
