Lindsay Davenport has gotten to this airy place at the top of the women's professional tennis rankings almost without notice, but not without effort.She was never singled out as the phenom. Never pointed to as the one most likely. But last month, she pried the No. 1 ranking away from Martina Hingis, 18, and not only became the first American-born woman to hold the ranking since Chris Evert in 1985, but also, at 22, the second-oldest woman to earn the No. 1 ranking for the first time."I'm a great example for kids," Davenport says.

Three years ago, Mount St. Joseph's tennis team finished 0-10, but if the Gaels' early-season exploits are any indication, they just might be headed for the best tennis season in school history. They opened with their first-ever win over McDonogh, the two-time defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champion and one of two teams with a chokehold on the conference title for 14 years. McDonogh and Gilman have won every title during that stretch except in 2001, when Calvert Hall took it. The Gaels are hoping this will be their year.

Congratulations to Ken Knouse and the Columbia Junior Open Tennis Tournament Committee on another successful year. And his tribute to Peter Finck was a great idea. Peter was a terrific supporter of tennis at all levels. He is missed. It was indeed refreshing and inspiring to read about what Ken and his tennis tournament team have quietly, and inexpensively, accomplished over the years. Local and the U.S. Tennis Association really benefits from these grassroots efforts. Who knows, maybe the next (Andy)

THE POET, John Keats, would have understood about tennis. When three members of his family had succumbed to tuberculosis, and he feared the same fate, he was spurred to write his greatest works.This frenzy of creation in the face of extinction is called spes phthisica, pronounced ''space tizica.'' (Spes, Greek for ''anticipation,'' phthisica, for tuberculosis.) Keats even had a premonition (fulfilled, sadly) of his own early demise:/!When I have fears that I maycease to be,, Before my pen has gleaned myteeming brain . . .The phenomenon can be recognized in a much broader context -- in tennis, for example.

The tennis courts at The Suburban Club in Pikesville are typically empty during weekday afternoons, with many of the usual patrons busy at work until they can head to the country club for some exercise. It was in this solitude, on a partly cloudy Monday earlier this month, that Xander Centenari slogged through a practice match, striking balls with a powerful forehand stroke when he saw an opportunity to win a point. Unlike other club members, Centenari doesn't have to budget time between work and tennis.

The U.S. Open begins Monday, with the usual extensive coverage on USA Network and CBS, and as enjoyable as the telecasts are for tennis fans, each year's edition seems to bring with it the same question. Can tennis be fixed? Earlier this week, while appearing on WJFK (1300 AM), prolific sports author John Feinstein - whose books include one on pro tennis - said: "Tennis is dead." During a conference call Wednesday, USA and CBS commentators Tracy Austin, Mary Carillo and John McEnroe spent a chunk of their time going over the well-worn topics of how the sport's structure undermines its well-being.

But when he came to Atholton last year, he saw tennis differently. He has enjoyed and thrived in the team atmosphere and loves the support he receives and gives to teammates. After reaching the state tournament playing doubles with partner George Mao last year - they finished 24-2 - Sklar moved to No. 1 singles this season and has excelled. After capturing the Howard County singles title and leading the Raiders to their third straight Howard County Cup team crown on Saturday, he took an 18-1 mark into District 5 region play on Thursday.

The Inn at Perry Cabin, a luxurious St. Michaels hotel where parts of the movie "Wedding Crashers" were filmed, will be sold to a private real estate firm for $39.7 million. The purchase by real estate magnate Richard Cohen's CAP Acquisitions LLC is expected to close in the next few weeks, according to real estate services firm Savills Hospitality Group, which advised on the deal. The seller, Orient-Express Hotels Ltd., will remain as manager under a 10-year agreement. Marc Magazine, executive managing director of Savills Hospitality, said his firm approached London-based Orient-Express at the end of last summer about selling the property because Cohen, the president of CAP Acquisitions, was interested in expanding his hotel holdings.
