TOKYO -- Finally, after all the debate over whether high-definition television will be a revolutionary technology for consumers and national economies, the vaunted sets went on sale this week in Japan.They cost $34,000 apiece and the special-format broadcasts for HDTV are shown for only an hour a day. But for the three big electronics companies that have begun selling the world's first high-definition sets -- Sony, Matsushita and Hitachi -- the high cost and limited programming are no cause for distress at the outset.

PARIS - There was the usual rustling in the stands on the Philippe Chatrier stadium court when Albert Costa double-faulted to go down two sets to love yesterday. But unless they were headed for a comfort break, few fans, if any, were going anywhere. Down two sets? What's the problem? Senor Lunchpail was just getting started, and the French, who have been gaping in wonderment over the stamina and grit of this Spanish warrior for the past 10 days, knew it. Before the shiny afternoon was over, Costa would for the third time in this French Open come from two sets down to claim a win and keep alive his vastly underrated chances for a second consecutive title.

He was like a predator, waiting.Waiting for another glorious moment in a glory-filled year.For much of his 13-year career, Agassi has missed out on things he could have, should have accomplished. But not this year. This Agassi is fulfilling the promise others have long seen in him.When Martin's legs finally started to tire in the fourth set of yesterday's U.S. Open final, Agassi did what he had done in Paris to come back from two sets down to win the French Open.

When a play takes place in a hotel, it is helpful if the set includes walls. Oakland Mills High School staff and students were planning a production of Ask Any Girl in the fall, but they returned from summer vacation to find that all of their sets - built and saved over 10 years - had been discarded during a school construction project. So they turned to a group of students at Hammond High School who are good at building walls, doors, windows, stairs and other pieces that literally set the stage for school plays in Howard County.

After a hotly contested opening half, the Chesapeake Bayhawks took advantage of a 2-point goal by Ben Rubeor (Loyola High) just three minutes into the third quarter to propel them to an 11-7 Major League Lacrosse victory over the host Ohio Machine on Saturday night. With the win, Chesapeake became the first team to clinch a playoff spot. The teams went into halftime tied at 4, but Rubeor set the tone for a big second half for the Bayhawks (9-2), who extended their first-place lead to a full game over the Denver Outlaws.

PARIS -- No longer young in terms of professional tennis players, Andre Agassi, 29, completed a major career comeback yesterday and joined a short list of pro tennis immortals.With an incredible rally from two-sets-to-love down, Agassi willed his way back to a 1-6, 2-6, 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 victory over tenacious Andrei Medvedev at the French Open to become only the fifth man to win all four Grand Slam tournaments.And then the "kid" from Las Vegas cried."I may never have words to explain how this feels," said Agassi, his brown eyes never leaving the silver trophy sitting in front of him during the post-match interview.

LIVONIA, Mich. -- Outwardly, Glenn Bubenheimer seems like a perfectly sane human being. Nice, cozy home in a woodsy subdivision. A wife named Jill, two daughters, Rebecca and Sarah. A fine job as a manufacturing engineer with Ford. Just a mellow, middle-American fellow. Loves his family, pays his taxes, does his job. But walk downstairs to Bubenheimer's basement, and you'll find a den of total television lunacy: more than 200 vintage television sets, mostly nonworking, stacked tightly but neatly everywhere you look.
