WTA Championships change format, increase singles prize

LOS ANGELES -- The season-ending WTA Championships will change its format from a 16-player single-elimination tournament to an eight-player round-robin with the singles winner earning $1 million.


QUOTE TO BE REMEMBERED:

"There's not a single day that's guaranteed or promised to us, and certainly days like this are very rare," said Agassi, who became the oldest man to win a Grand Slam singles crown in 31 years.

Roger Federer wins the title 7-6 (7-5), 6-2, 7-6 (7-3).
Roger Federer makes history at Wimbledon on Sunday. The 21-year-old holds off a late surge from Mark Philippoussis to become the first Swiss man to win a Grand Slam.

Wimbledon: Ladies' Singles Final
Serena Williams has defeated her sister, Venus, in three sets to retain her Ladies' Singles title. With her sister in obvious pain from an abdominal injury, Serena Williams tops Venus 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 for the Wimbledon championship -- her fifth title in the past six Slams.
 

Andy Roddick lacks his usual fireworks in Friday's semifinals, losing to Roger Federer in straight sets. No. 4 Federer will face Mark Philippoussis for the Wimbledon title.

Serena Williams firmly put her loss at Paris behind her with a 6-3, 6-2 victory against Justine Henin-Hardenne on Thursday. Both players deny that a rivalry exists. Serena, who says her sister inspires her, will face play Venus in the final. Venus fought through an injury to defeat Kim Clijsters in three sets.
 

Sebastien Grosjean will play in the Wimbledon semifinals for the very first time after defeating Tim Henman on Thursday, 7-6(8), 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. Grosjean is only the second player to defeat Henman before the semifinals since 1997. The Frenchman will take on Mark Philippoussis, who defeated Alexander Popp 8-6 in the fifth set to advance.

Andy Roddick will also be playing in his first Wimbledon semifinal after scoring a 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 victory against Sweden's Jonas Bjorkman. Roddick will take on Roger Federer for a spot in the finals after the No. 4 seed defeated Sjeng Schalken, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.
 

Bhupathi/ Mirnyi Reach Semis
Mahesh Bhupathi and Max Mirnyi, the No. 1 seeds in the Gentlemen's Doubles, quickly polished off their rain-interrupted quarter-final today.

Federer Wins Place in Semis
Philippoussis Into Semis
 

Henman's Game Clouds Over
Britain's Henman is currently trailing Sebastian Grosjean by two sets to one in their quarter-final match, which was suspended due to bad weather.

Popp and Scud All Square
Mark Philippoussis and Alexander Popp were tied at two games each in the fifth set of their quarter-final when play was suspended for the day because of rain and bad light.
 

The Williams sisters might be vulnerable of late, but that doesn't make them beatable on the grass at Wimbledon. No. 1 Serena and No. 4 Venus advance to the semis with three-set wins over Jennifer Capriati and Lindsay Davenport.


Clijsters Survives Early Shock
Silvia Farina Elia gave the number two seed Kim Clijsters a shock on No.1 Court, taking the first set before the Belgian powered through 5-7, 6-0, 6-1 for a place in the last four.


Mark "The Scud" Philippoussis launched 46 aces at Andre Agassi, one of the best returners in the game, to win 6-3, 2-6, 6-7 (4), 6-3, 6-4 on Monday. That leaves only Andy Roddick on the men's side. All the American women -- Serena, Venus, Lindsay and Jennifer -- won in straight sets.

Andre Agassi may be 33, but he certainly hasn't lost a step. Agassi outlasts Younes El Aynaoui 5-7, 6-4, 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-4) at Wimbledon on Saturday
Serena Williams has blasted her way past Laura Granville in straight sets, 6-3, 6-1. Mark Philippousssis and Mary Pierce also won today.

In a match of mirror-images, Russian wild card Maria Sharapova has defeated No.11 seed Jelena Dokic, 6-4, 6-4 in a hard fought encounter on Court 1. By reaching the fourth round the glamorous Sharapova has equalled the best-ever performance by a Ladies Singlesí wild card at The Championships.


WIMBLEDON, England --   Andy Roddick and Venus Williams take center court by storm Friday, easily reaching the fourth round at Wimbledon. Roddick wins every game he serves during his 7-6 (7-5), 6-4, 6-4 win vs. Tommy Robredo, while Williams routs Nadia Petrova 6-1, 6-2. Andy Roddick will not take on Paradorn Srichaphan, who beat 17-year-old Rafael Nadal 6-4, 6-4, 6-2.

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., June 26, 2003 - The USTA and U.S. Fed Cup Captain Billie
Jean King today announced that nine-time Grand Slam singles champion Monica
Seles, Meghann Shaughnessy, the 20th ranked singles player in the world, and Lisa Raymond, the world's sixth-ranked doubles player, have been named to the U.S. team that will face Italy in the 2003 Fed Cup quarterfinals,
Saturday, July 19 and Sunday, July 20, at the William H. G. FitzGerald Tennis Center in Washington, D.C. Seles will return to competition for the first time since May 27, joining teammate Venus Williams, a four-time Grand Slam singles champion, to round out the U.S. team. Italian Captain Corrado
Barrazzutti has until July 9 to name his team members.

Mary Pierce takes a big step toward a return to prominence Thursday, dominating No. 14-seeded Eleni Daniilidou 6-4, 6-1. Andre Agassi is in control in the second round, dispatching Lars Burgsmuller 6-3, 7-6, 6-3. Also, defending champion Serena Williams, Jennifer Capriati, French Open champ Justin Henin-Hardenne and Tim Henman reach the third round.

What a difference grass makes. After struggling on Roland Garros clay, Americans are finding Wimbledon much more to their liking. Andy Roddick, Venus Williams  all advance to Round 3 on Wednesday.

WIMBLEDON, England -- American Mardy Fish reached the third round at Wimbledon for the first time Wednesday by beating compatriot Jan-Michael Gambill 6-4, 6-4, 6-1.

WIMBLEDON, England -- With all that Todd Martin's juggling, it's surprising he can keep his mind on tennis. Martin reached the third round of Wimbledon on Wednesday with a 7-6 (4), 6-4, 6-4 win over 17th-seeded Gustavo Kuerten.

On Tuesday, Agassi had a brief letdown in the third set but still easily defeated British wild card Jamie Delgado 6-4, 6-0, 5-7, 6-4. Local favorite Tim Henman survived against lucky loser Tomas Zib, but No. 7 Guillermo Coria and No. 14 Xavier Malisse tumbled.

WIMBLEDON, England -- Eager to put Paris in the past, Serena Williams began her bid for a second consecutive Wimbledon title Tuesday by beating fellow American Jill Craybas 6-3, 6-3.

WIMBLEDON, England -- Venus Williams wants to play better by trying to be less than perfect. The approach worked at Wimbledon in her opening match Monday, when Williams overcame some erratic shotmaking to beat qualifier Stanislava Hrozenska 6-2, 6-2 in 50 minutes.

It doesn't take long for Wimbledon to record it's first shocker. Men's top seed and defending champion Lleyton Hewitt falls to Ivo Karlovic in four sets. Earlier, Andy Roddick wins easily in an early match.


ROSMALEN, Netherlands -- Kim Clijsters won the Ordina Open on Saturday when Justine Henin-Hardenne quit after hurting her left hand during the second set of an all-Belgian final. This rematch of the French Open final earlier in the month ended with a 6-7 (4-7), 3-0 victory for Clijsters in a grass-court Wimbledon tuneup.


NEW YORK -- The singles winners at the U.S. Open in September will each earn $1 million, the largest paychecks in Grand Slam history.
The higher prizes will be part of a general U.S. Tennis Association increase of almost $1 million, from $16.17 million last year to $17.07 million. It also includes a record $400,000 to the winners of the doubles events.

ROSMALEN, Netherlands -- Richard Krajicek retired Thursday because of elbow pain, ending a career in which he won Wimbledon in 1996 and was one of the hardest servers in tennis. The 31-year-old Dutchman leaves the sport two days after losing in the first round at a tournament in his home country. He said he has "lost the fight for my health.


Serena and Venus Williams didn't get to meet in the French Open, but the chance is there again at Wimbledon. The sisters are on opposite sides of the draw announced Tuesday for the year's third Grand Slam. Men's top seed Lleyton Hewitt faces a tough road to defending his title

Lleyton Hewitt and Serena Williams will defend their titles as the No. 1 seeds at Wimbledon, while Andre Agassi, who is atop this week's tour rankings, settles for No. 2. On the women's side, Kim Clijsters, Justine Henin-Hardenne and Venus Williams round out the top four.

PARIS -- Former world No. 1 Pete Sampras says he will never again play at the French Open, the only Grand Slam tournament he has not won. The record 14-times Grand Slam winner, who has not played since beating old rival Andre Agassi in September to win his fifth U.S. Open title, said he had put too much pressure on himself to win in Paris.

WIMBLEDON, England -- Former champion Goran Ivanisevic and Monica Seles pulled out of Wimbledon because of injuries.


Andy Roddick has always been on the verge of something great. Perhaps his performance this weekend will be what gets him over the hump. A day after finally beating Andre Agassi, Roddick tops Sebastien Grosjean in straight sets to win the Queen's Club title Sunday.


HALLE, Germany -- Roger Federer won his first grass-court title Sunday by defeating Nicolas Kiefer of Germany 6-1, 6-3 in the final of the Gerry Weber Open.

BIRMINGHAM, England -- Magdalena Maleeva beat unseeded Shinobu Asagoe 6-1, 6-4 in the final of the DFS Classic on Sunday for her 10th career title.

VIENNA, Austria -- Paola Suarez of Argentina won a $170,000 Grand Prix tournament in Vienna on Saturday, defeating Karolina Sprem of Croatia 7-6 (7-0), 2-6, 6-4 in 95-degree heat.


LONDON -- Andy Roddick served at 149 mph to equal the world record and beat Andre Agassi for the first time, winning 6-1, 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (8-6) Saturday to reach the final at Queen's Club.

WIMBLEDON, England -- Serena Williams and Venus Williams received a wild card Thursday to play doubles at Wimbledon even though they are the defending champions.  They needed the wild card because Venus does not have a doubles ranking and was not allowed to go straight into the draw.

Not only does Lleyton Hewitt lose at Queen's Club for the first time since 1999, he will also lose his No. 1 world ranking. Hewitt falls to Sebastien Grosjean 6-3, 6-4 in the quarterfinals before new No. 1 Andre Agassi moves on with a 6-4, 7-5 victory over Belgium's Xavier Malisse

BIRMINGHAM, England -- Martina Navratilova wants another chance to play singles. The 46-year-old Navratilova has asked for a wild card to play at next week's Wimbledon warmup tournament in Eastbourne.

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., June 9, 2003 - The USTA and U.S. Fed Cup Captain Billie Jean King today announced that Venus Williams, a four-time Grand Slam  singles champion, will represent the U.S. in Fed Cup competition as the
United States faces Italy in the 2003 Fed Cup quarterfinals, July 19-20, at the William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center in Washington D.C. The winner of
the U.S. vs. Italy match will advance to the Final Four Fed Cup World Finals.


Juan Carlos Ferrero breaks through at the French Open on Sunday, beating Martin Verkerk 6-1, 6-3, 6-3 for his first Grand Slam title. The 23-year-old Spaniard, who had lost in last year's final and in the '00 and '01 semis, uses steady baseline play to win the most one-sided men's final in Paris in 25 years

Justine Henin-Hardenne becomes the first Belgian to win a Grand Slam on Saturday, beating No. 2 Kim Clijsters 6-0, 6-4 at the French Open for her first major career title. Her victory ends a streak of 11 consecutive Grand Slam championships won by American women


It was certainly an unusual weekend for Amelie Mauresmo. Two points away from victory, Mauresmo saw her lead evaporate in Sunday's 3-6, 7-6 (3), 6-0 loss to Kim Clijsters in the Italian Open final. One day earlier, Mauresmo had been two points away from defeat before rallying to stun top-ranked Serena Williams. It was the third title of the year for Clijsters as the French Open looms.

FOREST HILLS, N.Y. -- Russian-born Alex Bogomolov Jr. beat Argentina's Mariano Delfino 1-6, 6-1, 6-1 on Saturday to win the Forest Hills Tennis Classic at the West Side Tennis Club.

HAMBURG, Germany -- Guillermo Coria beat fellow Argentine Agustin Calleri 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 on Sunday to win the Hamburg Masters for his second career ATP Tour title.


LONDON -- Pete Sampras is out of the French Open and Wimbledon, raising the possibility that one of the greatest tennis players ever is through with the sport. French Open and Wimbledon officials said Friday they had received confirmation of Sampras' withdrawal. The ATP also confirmed the withdrawals.


Kim Clijsters' high from overtaking Venus Williams as No. 2 in the world sinks Sunday. Clijsters falls to an even streakier Justine Henin-Hardenne in an all-Belgian final of the German Open. The title is the third of the season for Henin-Hardenne.


Venus Williams wins a first-set tiebreak, but loses the next nine games to Amelie Mauresmo before pulling out of the J&S Cup final with a pulled stomach muscle. Mauresmo, leading 6-7, 6-0, 3-0 when Venus retires, wins her first title of 2003.


A day after becoming the oldest player to earn the ATP's No. 1 ranking, 33-year-old Andre Agassi rallies past Andy Roddick 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 Sunday to win the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships in Houston.

LOWELL, Mass. -- The Williams sisters were a nation unto themselves. They beat all five opponents they faced from the Czech Republic without dropping a set, sending the United States into the quarterfinals of the Fed Cup.

BARCELONA, Spain -- Carlos Moya won the Open Seat Godo on Sunday when Marat Safin quit in the fourth set, citing fatigue. It was the first time in the tournament's 51-year history the final had been settled by a withdrawal. "I just couldn't keep going physically,'' Safin said. "After the first set I had a big letdown and I just couldn't move. And, if you can't move against Moya, you can't play. My game is attacking and moving on the court. It was impossible to continue.''


Elena Dementieva beats three of the top four seeds at the Bausch & Lomb, finishing with a 4-6, 7-5, 6-3 victory over Lindsay Davenport on Sunday to earn her first title. Dementieva beats No. 4 seed Daniela Hantuchova, No. 1 Justine Henin-Hardenne and No. 2 Davenport for the title.


SARASOTA, Fla. -- Second-seeded Russian Anastasia Myskina handled unseeded Aussie Alicia Molik on Sunday to win the $140,000 Sarasota Clay Court Classic. The 21-year-old Myskina posted a 6-4, 6-1 victory to secure her fourth career title, as she improved to 4-3 in her career finals, including 2-0 this season.
 
CASABLANCA, Morocco -- Second-seeded Rita Grande beat fellow Italian Antonella Serra Zanetti 6-2, 4-6, 6-1 Saturday to win the Grand Prix de SAR for her third WTA Tour title. It was Grande's fourth final and first championship since 2001.


Andre Agassi has some bragging rights over his wife, Steffi Graf. Agassi defeats Carlos Moya 6-3, 6-3 for his sixth career Key Biscayne title in Sunday's Nasdaq-100 Open final, surpassing Graf's record of five. 'I finally beat her at something,' Agassi says.


Serena Williams has not lost in 2003, and she has not lost to rival Jennifer Capriati in a while. Both trends continued Saturday as Serena rallied past Capriati 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 to capture the Nasdaq-100 Open title. The top-ranked Williams, now 17-0 this year, has beaten Capriati seven straight times.


Tennis' top couple, Lleyton Hewitt and Kim Clijsters, win his and hers' Pacific Life titles Sunday in Indian Wells. Both players win their matches in straight sets, with Hewitt defeating Gustavo Kuerten, and Clijsters defeating Lindsay Davenport. 


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Lleyton Hewitt beat fellow Aussie Mark Philippoussis 6-4, 6-4 Sunday to win his second Franklin Templeton Tennis Classic title.

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- Jan-Michael Gambill beat fellow American Mardy Fish 6-0, 7-6 (5) Sunday to win the International Tennis Championships for the second time in three years.


ACAPULCO, Mexico -- Amanda Coetzer of South Africa won the Mexican Open for the second time in three years Sunday, using a controlled game to overcome Mariana Diaz-Oliva of Argentina 7-5, 6-3.

After rain forced Kim Clijsters to play two singles and a doubles match Friday, she was worried about her energy level for Saturday's semifinal. It turns out to be a formality as she breezes into the State Farm Classic final with a 6-3, 7-5 win over Meghann Shaughnessy

ACAPULCO, Mexico -- Agustin Calleri won his first ATP Tour title Saturday night, beating fellow Argentine Mariano Zabaleta 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 in the Mexican Open.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark -- Karol Kucera beat Olivier Rochus 7-6 (7-4), 6-4 Sunday at the Copenhagen Open for his sixth career title.


Taylor Dent's serve-and-volley game is just too much for Andy Roddick on Sunday as Dent easily defeats the defending champion 6-1, 6-4 in the Kroger St. Jude final. Dent scores 11 aces en route to his second career ATP Tour title.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- Top-seeded Carlos Moya of Spain won the $380,000 Copa AT&T on Sunday, beating Guillermo Coria of Argentina 6-3, 4-6, 6-4.

Justine Henin-Hardenne grabs her first trophy this year and Martina Navratilova wins her 168th doubles title at the Dubai Open on Saturday. The top-seeded Belgian outlasts Monica Seles 4-6, 7-6 (7-4), 7-5, while Navratilova teams up with Svetlana Kuznetsova en route to the championship.

ANTWERP, Belgium -- Venus Williams beat Kim Clijsters 6-2, 6-4 Sunday in the final of the Diamond Games for her first victory of the season.

If Williams wins the Diamond Games in any of the next three years, she can claim the diamond-encrusted trophy racket worth $875,000.

VINA DEL MAR, Chile -- David Sanchez of Spain upset third-seeded Marcelo Rios of Chile 1-6, 6-3, 6-3 on Sunday to win the BellSouth Open. "This is the happiest moment of all for me, and I expect to be back here next year," the 24-year-old Spaniard said.
