WIMBLEDON, England - Three days ago, the WTA Tour kicked off a worldwide publicity campaign with the aggressive slogan, "A woman's gotta do what a woman's gotta do." It's catchy and cool if only semi-original. But saying it and doing it are different matters and right now the big names on the women's tennis tour are not doing what they gotta do. Women's tennis is in a slump that is being fed by injuries, a lack of depth and a disturbing paucity of competitive matches, and even an all-Williams final at Wimbledon, which begins its 13-day run today, might not be enough to snap this tour out of the doldrums.

Today at 2 p.m., Baltimore is paying a final salute to the late Al Sanders, WJZ-TV's news and anchorman for many years. The corner of Druid Park Drive and Malden Avenue will be renamed Al Sanders Place in memory of this delightful man who died of cancer in May.And to make the salute complete, the city is moving Jerry Turner Way, from the 3700 block of Malden (which leads up to WJZ's studios) to the 3600 block so that it intersects with Al Sanders Place. Until his death from cancer in 1987, Turner co-anchored WJZ's popular newscast with Sanders.
