Melanie Oudin is 18 with sparkling green eyes, a long, blond ponytail and the youthful enthusiasm that goes with a quarterfinal performance at September's U.S. Open. Her mixed doubles partner Wednesday night at Pam Shriver's 24th annual Baltimore Community Foundation Tennis Challenge was a gray-haired, 50-year-old, curmudgeonly veteran Tennis Hall of Famer named John McEnroe. "She's younger than four of my six kids," McEnroe said. "But she plays with a lot of energy, and I think that's why she did so well at the Open.

Congratulations to the U.S. Davis Cup team for bringing the cup back from France by beating the Swiss team in the finals last weekend. (Congratulations, too, to the gallant Swiss, for getting to the finals and doing so well with a two-man team.) Non-playing captain Tom Gorman picked the right lineup for the U.S., and Jim Courier, Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras and John McEnroe all delivered -- the first two winning singles matches, the second two winning the doubles match.Jim Courier and Pete Sampras especially had a lot to prove, having done so poorly in Davis Cup play in the past.

John McEnroe, one of the most popular tennis players in the world, will play in Pam Shriver's BTP Tennis Challenge on Dec. 9 at 1st Mariner Arena. McEnroe is known as much for his attitude as for his volleys and shot-making. Who will forget his 1981 Wimbledon meltdown, when he screamed, "You can't be serious!" at an umpire, or his rivalries with Bjorn Borg, Jimmy Connors and Ivan Lendl? During his playing career, which lasted from 1978 to 1992, he earned No. 1 world rankings in both singles and doubles, and he holds seven Grand Slam singles titles, as well as nine Grand Slam doubles titles and one Grand Slam mixed doubles title.

WASHINGTON -- Top-seeded Petr Korda did what he was supposed to do yesterday -- win the NationsBank Classic at the William H. G. FitzGerald Tennis Center.But in a tournament in which many of the top-seeded players -- including Andre Agassi, John McEnroe and Ivan Lendl -- lost before the quarterfinals, the probability of a seeded player winning the tournament seemed unlikely.Enter Korda, a hard-working Czechoslovakian left-hander with a big serve and punishing ground strokes. The 23-year-old quietly dominated the tournament, losing only one set, and yesterday he beat unseeded Henrik Holm of Sweden, 6-4, 6-4.Holm -- who came to Washington ranked No. 114 but will move up to No. 60 after his performance here -- was playing in the first final of his six-year career.

The Mercantile Tennis Challenge is going retro this year, as originator Pam Shriver makes plans to celebrate the 20th annual event. At least three former world No. 1 tennis stars and International Tennis Hall of Famers - John McEnroe, Jim Courier and Martina Navratilova - have already agreed to take part Nov. 14 at 1st Mariner Arena. This will be the first time since 2000 that the challenge has been played in November, and Shriver voiced some relief about moving away from a December date, saying November provides "some comfort" as bad weather is less likely and there are fewer Christmas parties to contend with.

Howard "Bumpy" Frazer said a successor has not been named, he did say that John McEnroe will likely be a candidate for the job Gorman has held for the past seven years.

THE U.S. OPEN begins its two-week run in New York and on USA Network and CBS on Monday, so the question is: What is the No. 1 story of the tournament? How about: Does Rafael Nadal have clam-diggers to match the new blue court? You want a better story? Let's go with analyst Patrick McEnroe, then: "Can anyone stop [Roger] Federer?" The No. 1 men's player in the world has treated fans to stylish, dominant tennis and comes into the Open as the overwhelming favorite. The other half of the McEnroe Brothers Tennis Analysis firm, John, said Federer is approaching historic status.

Gore voted for Bush. Bush backed Gore. A "Saturday Night Live" skit? No, that's just the way it is on the Clemson football team, where Jovon Bush is a defensive tackle and Buddy Gore Jr. is a kicker. And unlike Texas Gov. George W. Bush and Vice President Al Gore, the only Florida recount these players want - after the Tigers' 54-7 loss to Florida State on Nov. 4 - is never going to happen. Like the rest of the nation, the two players couldn't stop following the twists and turns of the overtime presidential election.
