Angela Stanford admits she took on something of a mental burden as she played the final day of last week's Sybase Match Play Championship. It wasn't her fault, of course, that she was the only American to reach the semifinals in the revival of the LPGA's match-play showcase. But that didn't keep the proud Texan from carrying the weight of fan interest on her shoulders. "If anything, I was trying harder because I know that it just kind of keeps coming up — 'An American needs to win; an American needs to win,'" said Stanford, who fell to South Korea's Sun Young Yoo 3-and-1 in the final.

CARLSBAD, Calif. - Once again, match play was child's play for Tiger Woods, who won the Match Play Championship for the second year in a row and blew out the candles on his 40th PGA Tour victory. Only seven players have won more than Woods, but none has made more money, a bankroll that Woods added to yesterday when he carted off $1.2 million as a result of his 3-and-2 victory over Davis Love at La Costa. It was only a matter of time until it happened, but Woods also officially launched himself into exclusive new territory, golf's 40-40 club: $40 million (he has won $41.5 million)

LEBANON, Ohio - It was just the third shot of a long day, but telling nonetheless. A pitching wedge to the green on the long, par-5 opening hole left a ball mark so close to the flag it nearly ruined the integrity of the cup. Michelle Wie tapped in the ensuing 3 1/2 -footer for birdie in her morning match yesterday in the 80th U.S. Amateur Public Links at Shaker Run Golf Club. She was on her way. She routed C.D. Hockersmith, 6 and 5, in her morning match, then beat Jim Renner, 3 and 1, in the afternoon to advance to the quarterfinals.

PARIS - There was warm sun, just enough of a cooling breeze and hordes of fans packed into every outside court or causing 15-minute backups at the hot-ham-and-cheese sandwich concessions. There was Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Venus Williams and Kim Clijsters soaring to victory. And nothing, including the sullen look on Anastasia Myskina's face as she was drummed into a dubious place in French Open history, was going to make this first day of the French Open any less special. Her 6-4, 4-6, 6-0 loss to Maria Sanchez Lorenzo of Spain made her the first champion, male or female, in the history of the tournament to be put out in the first round the next year.
