WIMBLEDON, England -- A Yugoslav journalist, who begs "please, don't mention my name," says his newspaper has spies "like Interpol" all over the United States.Their job? "To find Monica, of course," he said.Monica Seles, once the No. 1 women's seed at Wimbledon, has still not surfaced. She and her family remain silent on the cause of the injury that caused Seles abruptly to pull out of Wimbledon on Friday, three days before the tournament was to begin.But reports that Seles has suffered a stress fracture related to the shin splints that pained her even as she won the French Open three weeks ago seemed to take on more credence yesterday.

After a trying process of arranging her charity tennis event last year, the last thing Pam Shriver wanted was a repeat of the experience for this year's Dec. 4 show at 1st Mariner Arena, especially with a new sponsor. Shriver, member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame and founder of what is now known as the Mercantile Tennis Challenge, didn't lock up last year's featured participants - Monica Seles and Lindsay Davenport - until mid-October. Earlier this year, she began the quest for players hoping to finish before summer, with their prominence being secondary.

Pro tennis is littered with fragile young women who tried to play too much too soon. But at Pam Shriver's 12th First Union/Signet Bank Tennis Challenge on Tuesday at the Baltimore Arena, fans will see three survivors.No. 3 Amanda Coetzer, No. 5 Monica Seles and No. 28 Chanda Rubin are young women who began playing on the pro tour as teen-agers and appear here at a time when each seems headed for new frontiers.In Coetzer, who began on the tour at 16, the charity event has come up with one of the hottest players on the tour -- her first-round defeat in the Chase Championships in New York last week notwithstanding.

Three years ago, neither Monica Seles nor Mary Joe Fernandez was sure she'd find her way back to professional tennis.Seles' ordeal was a public one: She was stabbed in the back during a changeover at a tournament in Hamburg, Germany, in April 1993.Fernandez's struggle was a private one: In August 1993, she underwent surgery to find out what had been causing searing abdominal pain for six years.Fernandez remembers her last thought on the way to the operating room as, "This could be it. I may never play tennis again."

WIMBLEDON, England -- Monica Seles wants no more noise about her grunting."It's part of my game, and a lot of other players do it," Seles said. "I just don't know why they picked on me. I guess being the No. 1 player, they always say those things."Seles was responding to headlines and stories in every London newspaper yesterday, calling for an end to her exclamations of exertion on the court, which had welcomed the world's No. 1 player back to Wimbledon after a year's absence.The ruckus was fueled by comments from tournament referee Alan Mills, who reportedly told chair umpires they could issue warnings to Seles about her incessant grunting.

WIMBLEDON, England - Monica Seles won't give up a game she loves, won't give in to dark thoughts of lost years and opportunities, and won't go quietly at this year's Wimbledon. In a tournament where the old generation is giving way to a new one, Seles is showing there's still some fight left in the young old-timer. Down a set yesterday, she gathered herself and her game to display all her familiar grit and gifts in defeating Ai Sugiyama of Japan, 4-6, 6-1, 6-4, to advance to the round of 16. Seles, a 28-year-old survivor, has a place in the second week.

PARIS - Two legs to stand on. What once was a modest objective in the personal comeback program of Jennifer Capriati today has the ring of momentous tennis achievement. Two legs of the 2001 Grand Slam, the Australian Open in January and the French Open yesterday, now belong to Capriati after her 1-6, 6-4, 12-10 championship victory over Belgium's Kim Clijsters. It is a tennis accomplishment no less remarkable than Capriati's rehabilitation of her young, oft-troubled life. Only four other women - Maureen Connolly, Margaret Court, Steffi Graf and Monica Seles - have won the Australian and French Opens during the same calendar year.

WIMBLEDON, England - They're tired. They're battered. They're Wimbledon's walking wounded. The sport's grandest spectacle is turning into a survival test as the game's top stars deal with the bruises of a season nearly without end. Yesterday, it was Russian iron man Yevgeny Kafelnikov who was sent out of the tournament with a nick and scowl, complaining of a pain in the muscle between his ribs and losing to Thomas Johansson, 6-1, 7-6 (7-0), 6-4. The pain wasn't too excruciating for No. 5 seeded Kafelnikov.

PARIS - It could finally be Martina Hingis' year at the French Open. It could again be Gustavo Kuerten's or Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario's; could even be Mary Pierce's. But what is certain after an overstuffed afternoon of quarterfinal action yesterday is that it will not be an American's. For the first time in 33 years, no U.S. man or woman will take part in the semifinals of the world's premier clay-court tournament. Monica Seles, Venus Williams and Chanda Rubin were all beaten yesterday, and the crushed red brick at Roland Garros has been left to the Spanish, the Swiss, the Brazilians and, technically speaking at least, the French.

NEW YORK -- Mary Pierce is sitting with friends in the players lounge at the U.S. Open when she's interrupted. She and Orioles second baseman Roberto Alomar have been an item for about a year, and rumors have been swirling.Are you and Alomar engaged, she's asked?"Don't you know?" said Pierce, who was in good spirits after advancing to the third round with a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Cara Black. "Don't you know? We're already married with two children."And then she laughed happily as she flashed her left hand, on which she is wearing a ring with seven diamonds.
