LISA DILLMAN'S TENNIS RANKINGS AND COMMENTS:

*--* MEN 1 ANDRE AGASSI Wimbledon rarities: Hot weather, British women winning and Agassi serving-and-volleying 2 ANDY RODDICK Like Kobe Bryant to Brad Gilbert's Phil Jackson. But can't see Phil wearing a Metallica hat 3 ROGER FEDERER Next faces Spaniard, who, yes, serves and volleys 4 TIM HENMAN Needs another Beckham tabloid story to ease the second-week pressure 5 MARK PHILIPPOUSSIS Scud by the sea. Philippoussis-Agassi could be fourth-round highlight 6 LLEYTON HEWITT Lot quieter around All England Club without sound of "Come-onnnn!" 7 JUAN CARLOS FERRERO Props for showing up. More props for adapting to grass-court game 8 SJENG SCHALKEN One of two men remaining in draw with more than one grass-court title 9 SEBASTIEN GROSJEAN Ferrero vs. Grosjean sounds like clay-court final, not fourth round at Wimbledon 10 GREG RUSEDSKI Burst of four-letter words costs $2,500, or an expensive meal in London

WOMEN 1 SERENA WILLIAMS Sure sign of growing up: Says she has jumped off Harry Potter bandwagon 2 JUSTINE HENIN-HARDENNE Good: Four wins from French-Wimbledon double. Bad: Still bothered by hand injury 3 VENUS WILLIAMS Glimpses of old Venus emerging after three strong rounds 4 KIM CLIJSTERS Tables flipped. Supportive girlfriend now watched by supportive boyfriend, Hewitt 5 VERA ZVONAREVA Rematch of French Open contest vs. V. Williams. Big edge to Williams 6 JENNIFER CAPRIATI Aching shoulder could be exploited by A. Myskina in today's fourth round 7 LINDSAY DAVENPORT Good news: Untested Asagoe is next. Bad news: V. Williams maybe in quarters 8 ANASTASIA MYSKINA Another Russian who benefited from Lansdorp's advice 9 CHANDA RUBIN Left it all behind in Eastbourne. Opened up draw for Farina Elia, Suarez 10 RUSSIA Wimbledon turns into Russia House. Five women left in last 16, most of any nation
