KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. -- When the pioneer Matheson family gave Dade County half of this tropical island 50 years ago, it set one condition: The 900 acres stretching from Biscayne Bay to the Atlantic Ocean had to remain a public park forever.Now the family wants a chunk of the park back and filed suit recently to take it.The Mathesons insist that the county broke its promise by inviting the Lipton International Players Championships to make its home there and by agreeing to build a $16.5 million stadium for the tennis tournament by 1993.

The coolest sporting event in South Florida this week is the Sony Ericsson Open, the popular pro tennis event in Key Biscayne. The tournament has been spiced up this year with something called Night Tennis, which is basically a glitzy downtown exhibition that features players in glow-in-the-dark clothing competing under black lights on a court that will open up to an all-night party that is free to the public tonight and tomorrow. The tournament is no slouch either, featuring just about every big name in professional tennis.

KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. - Serena Williams was the winner, coming back after being off the tour more than eight months with a knee injury and capturing the Nasdaq-100 Open title in a mortifying 50-minute final. But Elena Dementieva, whose wild serves were the butt of jokes during this 12-day tournament - she totaled 57 double faults, after all - was not the loser. The real loser was women's tennis, which took a terrible hit with several top players not entered because of injury or fatigue. That allowed sixth-ranked Williams to dance through the draw and crush No. 8 Dementieva, 6-1, 6-1, on a perfectly blue and perfectly boring afternoon yesterday.

MIAMI - A 13-year-old boy got an unfriendly greeting from an underwater creature Friday while he walked in murky water about 4 feet deep off Key Biscayne near Miami. Patrick Homer, who says he believes that it was a nurse shark that bit him on the left leg, was in good condition and spirits when he told his story about an hour after the attack. Patrick said he was not initially fearful when he saw the animal as he walked toward his tree fort out on the flats near his home. "I thought, `Just a shark; probably won't bug me,'" Patrick said.

Standish McCleary Jr., a retired senior vice president of Legg Mason Wood Walker Inc. who had a 73-year career at the Baltimore investment firm, died Thursday of congestive heart failure at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Berlin. He was 91 and lived in Key Biscayne, Fla., and in Ocean City. Mr. McCleary was known for tenacity and common sense during his years with Legg Mason and its predecessor firms. He retired June 8 after a series of ailments. Forty years ago, when people commonly traveled into Baltimore to see their broker, his vision led him to recommend that Legg & Co. open an office in the rapidly expanding suburbs.

KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. -- The microphone isn't working, so chairs are pulled closer and the reporters are scarcely breathing in order to hear every word. Stefan Edberg, hair still damp from the shower, is at the snug center of the media circle, chatting sociably, looking smaller and slimmer than he does on the court.Edberg, the No. 2-ranked tennis player in the world, perhaps only a tournament away from regaining the No. 1 position that he held for 66 weeks, doesn't look imposing enough, or sound arrogant enough, to convince you that he's entangled in a battle to be the best in the world.
