If we're truthful, some of us will admit that we've been watching the U.S. Open these past two weekends as much to see the anticipated battle between John McEnroe and Mary Carillo as for the ones between Steffi Graf and Monica Seles or Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras. Weren't you?That was certainly the hope of CBS, which paired Carillo and McEnroe for the tournament despite his unseemly previous comments about her ability to comment on men's tennis.To their credit, neither rose to the bait.

It's a good thing that Mary Carillo is a "the glass is half full" kind of person when it comes to looking at the state of tennis, for she'll need that kind of optimism to get through this weekend's U.S. Open finals.Carillo, the lead tennis analyst for CBS and one of the best commentators in sports television, will be one of the main voices on this weekend's marathon coverage, and that's a good thing.The bad thing is that with some of the bigger names in the game, namely Steffi Graf, Monica Seles, Pete Sampras, Boris Becker and Andre Agassi, either ousted from the tournament or never arrived on the scene, the pickings may be slim for the casual viewer in terms of names into which they can sink their teeth.

The TV repairman:The true fan can slip into a 14-hour college football coma tomorrow with Rutgers and Duke starting it off at noon on Channel 45 and a tape of the Maryland-Syracuse debacle running on Home Team Sports until about 2 a.m. Sunday. The network-cable mix includes Louisville-Ohio State, UCLA-Tennessee, Notre Dame-Michigan, Alabama-Florida and Penn State-Southern Cal.

The chasm that opened between Mary Carillo and John McEnroe was more than just your kissy-kissy television squabble, or so it would seem.In case you've forgotten, McEnroe has made some rather unkind remarks in the past two years about Carillo's ability to analyze men's tennis, which might make for a rather uncomfortable working atmosphere, given that they'll be in the booth together with Martina Navratilova for CBS at next week's U.S. Open.During a rather entertaining conference call yesterday, McEnroe tried, as best he could, to calm the choppy waters between himself and Carillo, with whom he won a French Open mixed doubles title in 1978.

First off, let Mr. Flip say he generally enjoys Mary Carillo's work very much. She strikes him as extremely knowledgeable, articulate and good-humored. Plus, once in a while, she'll stick a pin in John McEnroe. That said, Mr. Flip couldn't help but notice how, during the Wimbledon women's final Saturday on NBC, she spent a chunk of time talking about how Venus and Serena Williams have accomplished plenty in their tennis careers but could have done more. Their outside interests, Carillo said, kept them from building legacies to match those of the game's greats.

Just like almost anyone who has decided to retire, Bill MacPhail admits that these first few days away from the office will be a little antsy.But when you've had the kind of impact on the world of sports broadcasting as MacPhail, the former head of the sports divisions of both CBS and CNN, you've earned the right to rest."

WIMBLEDON, England — Roger Federer cocked an eyebrow once during the fourth set of his Wimbledon quarterfinal match against rosy-cheeked Tomas Berdych. Berdych, a talented 24-year-old from the Czech Republic, had just hit a looping forehand that was deceptively powerful. The ball landed deep in the corner of Centre Court, just a smidgen past the tip of Federer's racket. The point gave the Czech player a service break in the fourth set and it proclaimed what was about to happen: Federer will not be Wimbledon champion and won't even be a semifinalist.

THERE YOU sit, pen poised, pondering probable positions, preparing proper points, possibly picking Pacific ... Yes, it's time for the NCAA basketball tournament's Selection Sunday. (And please note a personal record for alliteration in the first paragraph.) CBS (WJZ/Channel 13 and WUSA/Channel 9) has the announcement at 6 p.m., with the familiar studio faces of Greg Gumbel, Clark Kellogg and Seth Davis, with Jim Nantz and Billy Packer opining from Chicago, site of the Big Ten final. During the one-hour program, selection committee chairman Bob Bowlsby will appear, to be either gently prodded or grilled, depending on the how the field looks and on Packer's mood.
