Baltimore native Pam Shriver has been a Hall of Fame professional tennis player and an advocate for her hometown for more than half her 48 years. But Wednesday night at the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel, she will celebrate the 25th anniversary of her Tennis Challenge, which has raised millions for children's charities, and then close the door on that chapter of her successful life. What does her future hold? Can everyone say "Mommy"? When you talk to her now, she is usually sitting in a carpool line, helping with homework, making plans for participating at her kids' classroom activities or signing up for parent education courses -- how to interest your kids in reading, how to deal with children when they are angry.

The ballroom glittered Wednesday night, and it had little do with the sparkling silver tennis balls in the table centerpieces at the Sheraton Inner Harbor. The sparkle came from the tennis royalty assembled for the evening to honor Pam Shriver and her charity event the Tennis Challenge, which was retired after 25 years. Billie Jean King, Martina Navratilova, Chris Evert, Elise Burgin and Ellicott City's Beatrice Capra - the newest area tennis star, who made a major impact at this fall's U.S. Open - were all here for the tribute to Shriver.

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.

It was raining bugs on a hot, humid evening. The runways facing Court 3 at the National Tennis Center were crammed with fans rushing into Louis Armstrong Stadium to see the night matches. The lights were flickering.But Pam Shriver didn't mind. She was stuck on an outer court last night against Rika Hiraki of Japan, and she was going to win a first-round U.S. Open match, 6-1, 6-1."I kept saying to myself, 'Put blinders on, Pam,' " Shriver said. "I didn't want to look. You wait all day to play, you get out on to a court at twilight, and the officials tell you that you're going on to a court where the lights aren't up to standard."
