LONDON - This year's Wimbledon, summed up: Roger Federer, gentleman and top-shelf role model, is a clear favorite to win his third consecutive championship, and the bookies are betting on the very grounded and exceptionally inoffensive Maria Sharapova to capture her second straight women's title. That's pretty much it. And that could be a problem for the British tabloids because, contrary to the belief of many people, the papers prefer to energetically embellish stories rather than create them outright.

WIMBLEDON, England -- Give this man red clay and hot sun. Let him slide on a court for hours, bending shots while driving his opponents into the dust.But keep Gustavo Kuerten away from grass and rain.Until this year, that used to be the book on Kuerten. But not anymore. The Brazilian clay-court specialist has become a grass-court ace, blasting his way into the Wimbledon quarterfinals yesterday by beating Lorenzo Manta of Switzerland, 7-5, 6-4, 5-7, 6-3."I'm a grass-court player," Kuerten declared with a broad smile breaking across his face.

NEW YORK -- Anke Huber threw her entire 5-foot-8, 128-pound body into her final forehand. She had been doing that on every shot against No. 15 seed Amelie Mauresmo, but this was her fourth opportunity at match point.When Mauresmo's backhand landed in the net, Huber, a 10-year veteran, found herself the upset winner of the match, 6-4, 6-4, and in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open for the first time in her career."It feels so good," said Huber, 24."I was very tight after the rain delay. I was telling myself, `Come on, just stay quiet, take it easy.

Things got heated in the third set when Tarango was down 2-3 and apparently hit a crosscourt backhand winner on the baseline.

WASHINGTON -- The last time Greg Rusedski felt this good, he made it to the finals of the U.S. Open. Injuries have prevented the Canadian-born British citizen from competing in a full summer hard-court circuit since 1997, but a return to normalcy this year has meant fewer trips to the doctor and a renewed pleasure for being on the court. "If you go into the doctor's every two weeks, you can't really enjoy it that much, can you?" said Rusedski, who visited 10 doctors last year. "I'm 0-for-10 this year seeing doctors, so that's a good stat."
