NEW YORK -- Jim Courier played what may have been his strongest match since suffering burnout last season and joined an American charge yesterday into the round of 16 at the U.S. Open.As Courier, No. 14, entered his post-match interview, someone sang in a sing-song voice, "Rolling, rolling rolling" and Courier, who has in the recent past often found it hard to muster a grin, responded in kind."Yes, yes, yes," he said, after beating Kenneth Carlsen, 6-3, 6-4, 6-2.At that point, Courier was the sixth American to advance to the fourth round and by the time last night's match between Michael Chang and Australian Todd Woodbridge was over, Chang had become the eighth American to move on, beating Woodbridge, 6-3, 6-2, 6-0."

NEW YORK -- Todd Martin was standing beside astronaut Dan Barry, talking about the space shuttle, when the questions started. "Are you going to the moon?" he was asked. "I'm on my way," said the U.S. Open semifinalist, who plays Cedric Pioline today. "Does this prove tennis is rocket science?" came another inquiry. "No, but sometimes I feel like I'm in outer space," he said, bringing to mind his fourth-round, five-set match and the two bags of fluids he needed to alleviate the delirium he was feeling from dehydration and illness.

The Newsweek Tennis Classic, under way in Rock Creek Park in Washington today, contains a fine field, including defending champ Petr Korda and the finalists in the tour stop in Boston yesterday, Ivan Lendl and Todd Martin (the "giant killer" of Wimbledon). Still, what the success of the tourney and 56-players field comes down to is Andre Agassi.Sure, the kid carries only a No. 22 ranking (because of being out with injuries) and maybe you don't like the "image is everything" style about him, but he is very close to being the only "show" in men's tennis these days.

NEW YORK -- Not everyone playing in the U.S. Open is out to win it. Most players don't even think they can. Those are some of the truths No. 7 seed Todd Martin revealed yesterday after advancing to the third round with a 6-4, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 victory over wild-card player Richey Reneberg. Martin, 29, his hair graying around the edges, has been playing Grand Slam tournaments since 1990. He's never won one and when asked if he thinks he ever will, almost choked. "It's impossible to predict," said Martin, who will play No. 81-ranked Magnus Larsson in the third round.

WIMBLEDON, England - What happens when an Australian serving machine named Mark Philippoussis meets a Dutch brick wall named Sjeng Schalken? The longest one-day match - by time - in open-era Wimbledon history. Philippoussis defeated Schalken, 4-6, 6-3, 6-7 (7-9), 7-6 (7-4), 20-18, yesterday in an epic third-round encounter that took 5 hours, 5 minutes to complete. "Those are the kind of matches that I'm proud of," Philippoussis said. "That's why you play tennis." Only the 1969 Pancho Gonzales-Charles Pasarell match was longer - 5 hours, 12 minutes - and that took two days for Gonzales to win. The 83 games Philippoussis and Schalken played were the most in a match at Wimbledon since 1970, before the tie-breaker was introduced.
