NEW YORK -- She screamed. She screeched. She gave a demonstration of an operatic death scene. And then Monica Seles took control of herself and the match and beat Jana Novotna, 7-6 (7-5), 6-2, in her most challenging match of the U.S. Open."I was just so angry with myself," said Seles after moving into the women's semifinals. "I was so tight. Finally, I had just had enough. I told myself to smile. I told myself to just go for the shots, that I had nothing to lose because I couldn't get any tighter."

WIMBLEDON, England -- There was Gabriela Sabatini, crouched low, glaring across the net.

Top-seeded Agassi wins 2nd PrudentialTop-seeded Andre Agassi overcame blistering midday heat and the power game of Derrick Rostagno for a 6-2, 1-6, 6-3 victory yesterday in the final of the Prudential Securities Tennis Classic.Agassi earned $32,400 with his first tournament victory of the year. Agassi won the event in 1989.The first set was a rout for Agassi, who belted the ball crisply past, around and through Rostagno, picking up service breaks in the fifth and seventh games. Fourth-seeded Rostagno, 25, seemed to flounder in the 100-plus degree courtside temperatures, making numerous unforced errors.

PARIS -- It was a final-round match between teen-age French Open champions, the defending champion Monica Seles and the 1989 winner, Arantxa Sanchez Vicario.Each is prone to figuring out footwork from the baseline and communicating effort and enthusiasm with a barrage of gutturals, grunts and groans.The vocal track from this lively confrontation yesterday rang out as loudly as its catapulted ground strokes on a dim, gray afternoon more reminiscent of March on the moors than springtime in Paris.

Nearly 17 million households were tuned in to watch the Chicago Bulls win the NBA championship over the Phoenix Suns last Sunday night and, get this, the postgame show drew a better rating than the game itself. Players pouring champagne over Bob Costas' head is that exciting?Overall, the six-game final did a better rating/share than "Monday Night Football" and the World Series, which has to be unsettling for the marketing departments of those two games.TNT, which did its usual fine job during the preliminary rounds (NBC, please take notes)

Reading Time: Two Minutes.* It sounds like a heckuva movie to me, LSU's baseball team having to come out of the loser's bracket to win its conference (SEC) tournament, an NCAA regional qualifier and, finally, the College World Series. Besides, the Tigers had to rally from two down in the ninth inning in the semis. There's probably a descendant of Roy Hobbs on the team.* New York's sophisticated, supposedly all-knowing baseball fans would not have to endure miserable summers if they didn't believe all that noise about their teams emanating from spring training.
