WIMBLEDON, England -- A year later and a ranking lower, Steffi Graf received a public apology from her father, Peter, this week.TTC The word was relayed through the German-based Stern magazine.Peter Graf confessed for the first time he had a brief affair with a topless model and said: "Without this whole story, Steffi would still be No. 1 in the world."Graf's drop from No. 1 to No. 2 in the world coincided with the scandal surrounding her father. Model Nicole Meissner last year accused Graf of being the father of her child.

Might Jordan Steffy's college football story have a happy ending after all? It seemed the fifth-year quarterback's college football career was all but over. But then, as Maryland (7-5) practiced recently for tomorrow's Humanitarian Bowl matchup with Nevada (7-5), Steffy's name surfaced in a media question-and-answer question with coach Ralph Friedgen. Asked who his backup quarterback was, Friedgen replied that it was "probably" Steffy, who hasn't played since fracturing his right thumb in Maryland's season-opening victory over Delaware.

COLLEGE PARK - After losing the starting quarterback competition in the preseason, junior Chris Turner contemplated his future at Maryland. He ultimately decided to stay, reasoning he would surely be called on during the 13-game season. "Inevitable" was the word Turner used to describe the chances he would call signals this year. He just didn't know his "inevitable" moment would come so soon. Turner was named the starter yesterday after tests showed ligament damage to Jordan Steffy's right thumb that will sideline him for a minimum of three weeks.

NEW YORK -- While Monica Seles took center stage on the Stadium Court last night, Steffi Graf rushed through an early morning practice and fled the National Tennis Center before a single spectator arrived. Not since Eddie Murphy and Dan Ackroyd has there been such a manifestation of Trading Places.Here at this year's U.S. Open, Seles has become the logical favorite, the emotional choice, the one to watch.

"I could go through a whole list of why I didn't think I'd get there, but, basically, I just didn't think I could do it."But yesterday, she beat No. 9 seed Gabriela Sabatini, 6-4, 7-6 (7-5), to arrive at today's championship match against No. 2 seed Monica Seles, who shares the world No. 1 ranking with Graf.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen stood behind the lectern wearing a jacket and tie instead of his usual coaching attire. He looked more like a salesman than the Terps' coach, which actually seemed somewhat appropriate. The lingering problem, just a week into the season: Not only are Terps fans uncertain about what they're buying, but Friedgen also doesn't even seem to be clear on what exactly he's selling. Yesterday, Friedgen delivered a passionate and emotional defense of his embattled quarterback, Jordan Steffy.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen delivered an impassioned defense of Jordan Steffy yesterday, likening the beleaguered quarterback to his own son and making an unusual appeal to Terrapins fans to quit harassing Steffy. "If you want to boo me, boo me. Don't boo the kid," Friedgen said during a media briefing noteworthy for the coach's intensity, but also for the fact that he wouldn't commit to starting the fifth-year senior Saturday at Middle Tennessee State. The team was waiting for X-ray results on Steffy's thumb, injured in Maryland's 14-7 season-opening victory over Delaware at Byrd Stadium.

COLLEGE PARK - Coach Ralph Friedgen won't commit to starting senior quarterback Jordan Steffy in Saturday's game at Middle Tennessee State, which means Maryland's on-again, off-again quarterback controversy is back on. Part of the uncertainty is over Steffy's health. The graduate student, who regained the job in the preseason after losing it when he suffered a concussion last year, injured his thumb in Saturday's 14-7 season-opening victory against Delaware. The thumb will be X-rayed today.

COLLEGE PARK - It was a savage hit, even by major college football standards. Rutgers safety Joe Lefeged flung himself at Jordan Steffy, crashing into the Maryland quarterback last season with an unnerving, helmet-to-helmet crack. Steffy, who walked haltingly up the locker-room stairs and remained forgetful and occasionally disoriented for several weeks after suffering a concussion in the Sept. 29 game, was set to graduate in the spring, and his once-promising career seemed all but over.

COLLEGE PARK - One day after naming senior Jordan Steffy the team's starting quarterback, Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen said the decision was "probably the most difficult for me, just because I didn't think it was going to be good no matter how it ended up." Picking Steffy over junior Chris Turner, along with junior Josh Portis, was probably the most controversial decision Friedgen has made during his eight seasons as coach. Fans filled various message boards expressing their surprise, and, in many cases, their disappointment with the choice.

Now and then, even the best of us get to phone one in. That's pretty much what Woody Allen does in "Everyone Says I Love You," a movie that seems to lose both its way and its convictions as it wanders along.Not that it's bad. In fact, it's frequently quite amusing as a bunch of charming but over-matched movie personalities uncertainly warble the music of Cole Porter, and others now and then essay a brave little sally into the world of dance. But it'll never make you forget "Singin' in the Rain"; it won't even make you remember it!

College Park -- Maryland quarterback Jordan Steffy, who suffered the second concussion of his career Sept. 29 at Rutgers, could be out as long as a month and will undergo more tests tomorrow, coach Ralph Friedgen said yesterday. "It could be awhile with Jordan," Friedgen said. "You don't know on the concussions. ... He's shown some improvement on the tests, but they're going to need a lot more to be clear." The injury-laden Terps got positive news on offensive lineman Andrew Crummey, who underwent surgery for a fractured fibula and was upgraded from a season-ending injury to possibly being able to play in the season finale.
