Fifty trophies fill the antique china cabinet in the tiny one-bedroom apartment at the tennis club where Vic Seixas lives alone, supporting himself at 76 with two bartending jobs mornings and afternoons. The oldest trophy, his first, came from a 1937 boys tournament, and it looks more impressive than a modest silver cup inscribed "singlehanded championship of the world." That one is from Wimbledon, 1953. "The bigger the trophy, the smaller the tournament," says Seixas, who also won the U.S.

My family and I extend heartfelt thanks for sharing with Southern Californians the tragic loss of my husband, author Forrest E. "Skip" Fickling (April 11). The memorial service honoring Skip's 73d birthday, the special life he lived and his new life in heaven was truly magnificent. Inspiring beyond belief was the blessing of Rev. Gary Tucker, the words spoken following his invocation, and our proud U.S. Marine Corps personnel, who stood at attention in their elegant blue uniforms during the entire 45-minute procedure.

Lagunitas Brewing 'A Little Sumpin' Sumpin" Ale This is a delightful little sumpin' sumpin'. The nose is almost as piney as a West Coast India Pale Ale, but the palate is so malty-sweet you scarcely notice any bitterness until the finish, which is clean and short — the opposite of clingy, as it were. It gets its smooth character from malted wheat, though wheat flavor doesn't exactly leap out at you. Lagunitas introduced it last year as a summer seasonal and has clearly repeated it because of popular demand.

The Lakers have a 4-6 record under Coach Mike D'Antoni, losing 15 of 40 quarters (37.5%). In comparison, the team went 1-4 under Mike Brown, losing 11 of 20 quarters (55%). In the six-game Bernie Bickerstaff interim period, the Lakers lost just four of 24 quarters (16.7%), but three were in the same game (San Antonio Spurs). In the five Bickerstaff victories, the Lakers lost just a single quarter. The team has won 70% of their first quarters (7-3) under D'Antoni, suggesting the issue may go beyond questions in the starting lineup.
