NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Orioles are confident that their five-month wait for Cuban defector Henry Urrutia, stuck in Haiti unable to play because of visa issues, will end within the next two weeks. Urrutia, a 25-year-old corner outfielder, has established residency in Haiti and has been awaiting a visa there for since the Orioles signed him to a minor league contract in July. The club paid Urrutia a $778,500 signing bonus. Fred Ferreira, the Orioles executive director for international recruiting, said that Urrutia recently made huge strides toward obtaining a visa with the help of the United States ambassador to Haiti.

A month before he joined the Orioles as the organization's new executive director of international recruiting, curiosity took Fred Ferreira to the Mexican coastal city of Mazatlan. With more than 40 years of experience scouring for international talent, Ferreira has uncovered many diamonds in the rough throughout Latin America. And his most recent such discovery emerged last November in the Mexican Pacific League, a world away from the intimidating cathedrals of the American League East like Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park.

WASHINGTON -- If it wasn't for a delayed line call against him Friday night, Michael Chang might not have arrived as the No. 3 player in the world yesterday and been in line today to win the 25th tournament of his still-young career.Seemingly on the way to another workmanlike victory against Vince Spadea in the third-round match Friday, Chang jumped up in the air to avoid a ball as it whizzed by. He assumed it was out. It was called good. Just one lost point later, he had blown the set.It set off an alarm.

WIMBLEDON, England - This Wimbledon cannot be serious. It's a Wimbledon without an American man in the final 16 for the first time since 1922, and only two of the top 16 seeds still standing. It's a Wimbledon where Brazil's Andre Sa survives into the second week and seven-time champion Pete Sampras does not. And it's a Wimbledon where the phrase "home cooking" may have been introduced at Centre Court. Yesterday, No. 4 Tim Henman, bidding to become Britain's first men's champion since 1936, was aided by a controversial call in a third-round win over South Africa's Wayne Ferreira, 7-6 (6)

WASHINGTON -- Heading into yesterday's Legg Mason Tennis Classic final, Michael Chang described his opponent Wayne Ferreira as "one of the more well-rounded guys on tour. He has a big serve, good backhand, good forehand and he can play serve and volley."The assessment didn't seem to leave any area in which to attack or exploit Ferreira, so how come Chang breezed, 6-2, 6-4?The defeated South African had the answer: "I served horribly."As happens way more often than not when Chang plays, he went into his give-nothing-up mode: "I figure I had to cut down on my errors and play good, solid tennis if Wayne was on."

WIMBLEDON, England -- Boris Becker slept fitfully Monday night, thinking about how he couldn't finish off Wayne Ferreira in the fourth set of their Round of 16 match, worrying about coming back for the fifth set the following afternoon to complete it.When Becker woke up to rainy skies yesterday morning, he knew he might be in for a long day. When the rain grew into a more than three-hour delay, the first prolonged bad weather break during this year's Wimbledon,...

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- Dead tennis balls, dead air and dead legs wiped John McEnroe out of the Australian Open just as surely as the brute serving power and nearly flawless play of young, freckle-faced Wayne Ferreira.McEnroe's farewell to Australia, perhaps for the last time, did not come after a match of elegant strokes and dramatic rallies, like his victories over Boris Becker and Emilio Sanchez. He didn't rage at linesmen or throw his racket as he did two years ago.Rather, he succumbed quietly, almost too quietly, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 last night in a sheer bludgeoning by a South African player he'd barely heard of. Ferreira introduced himself to McEnroe by swatting 15 aces to McEnroe's two, and putting away 30 clean winners to McEnroe's six."

Desperately lagging in the world baseball market, the Orioles are attempting to step up their international efforts, and this weekend might serve as a primary example of that change in philosophy. An Orioles contingent — to include manager Buck Showalter, new executive director of international recruiting Fred Ferreira, international operations director David Stockstill and new bullpen coach and Dominican Republic native Bill Castro — will attend a private workout Saturday morning in the Dominican by 26-year-old outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, a Cuban defector.

Orioles executive VP of baseball operations Dan Duquette couldn't stress enough how important he feels it is to put added emphasis on international scouting and recruiting. The hiring of new executive director of international recruiting Fred Ferreira is proof of that, but Duquette said that he will be bringing in additional international scouts to help Ferreira and Dave Stockstill with that effort. “Fred Ferreira is one of the top talent scouts in the business, and one of the things we needed to devote more resources toward was our international recruiting efforts," Duquette said Sunday evening.

WIMBLEDON, England - Left ankle wrapped in tape, shoulders slumped in despair, Pete Sampras was struggling to hold on to Wimbledon yesterday. The six-time champion sought to shake off apparent pain and a bad case of the Karol Kucera blues. Everywhere Sampras looked on Centre Court in the gathering darkness, there was Kucera, refusing to go away quietly. Sampras eventually launched one last big serve to survive and win, 7-6 (11-9), 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. But at what cost? That was the question that loomed over Wimbledon as Sampras left the grounds for treatment of an inflamed left foot.

"... A free press is the first enemy of dictatorship." It may seem unconnected but that quote has come to mind repeatedly during almost five months as the nation has watched the Elian Gonzalez saga. Beyond the tragedy of a family torn asunder by fate and international politics, the subtext of the Elian story is the sacrifice of free expression on the altar of propaganda. Media coverage of Elian has been more than manipulated. Other words apply: misleading, myopic, muddled. The obvious culprits are the anti-Castro zealots and Florida politicians who have shaped the debate and the coverage during much of the Elianwatch.

NEW YORK -- If you don't remember Andrei Medvedev as the No. 6 player in the world in 1993, you may remember him as the comedian who claimed U.S. Open officials were trying to poison him here two years ago by serving such bad food.You'd hardly know him today."I realized, especially during this year, that without putting your mind into tennis -- 99.9 percent of your mind into tennis -- you can't be successful," he said after beating Jean-Philippe Fleurian, 6-2, 6-0, 6-1, yesterday. "I have had much less fun off the court, but now I'm having much more fun on the court."
