Andrei Chesnokov has been awarded the Order of Courage by Russian President Boris N. Yeltsin for his tennis heroics. But the Russian admits to "freezing up inside" when he thinks about the opponent he must play today. Chesnokov, the world's 90th-ranked singles player, will open the Davis Cup final--the climax of a tournament that involved 115 national teams--against top-ranked Pete Sampras of the United States. But don't count the Russians out.

Conchita Martinez, a 17-year-old from Spain who did not have a computer ranking a year ago, upset top-seeded Gabriela Sabatini of Argentina, 6-3, 6-2, Sunday to win the $200,000 Eckerd Tennis Open at Largo, Fla. Martinez, seeded eighth, whose only previous tournament championships were in satellite events, did not lose a set during the tournament. Martinez never trailed. She broke Sabatini in each of her first three service games and built a 5-2 first-set lead. After Sabatini held, cutting it to 5-3, Martinez struggled to close out the set. She had three set points, but made errors on each one. Finally, on Martinez's fourth opportunity, Sabatini slammed a forehand long.

Andrei Chesnokov, who is not to be confused with Andre Agassi, although he is often confused with Andrei Cherkasov, finally produced an identification number Wednesday. It is: 6-0, 6-4, 6-4. With that score, Chesnokov knocked Stefan Edberg out of the 1992 Olympics in the first round in such overwhelming fashion that Chesnokov could not decide where to place the credit. "I don't know if I beat him," Chesnokov said after his 1-hour, 38-minute romp. "Maybe he lost."

As he said he would, Michael Stich hung up his gone-on-vacation sign, but the timing of his holiday seemed to catch everyone pretty much by surprise. During a match? On reflection, Stich said there is a simple explanation for what happened. "I got tired, I lost, that's it," Stich said. So there you have it.

Michael Chang, a part-time fisherman who spends hours on Lake Mead, landed a big one Sunday. Chang finished a weeklong junket, navigating through the $1-million Newsweek Champions Cup, bagging Andrei Chesnokov and $137,500 and matching his best top-10 ranking in more than two years. All in all, it amounted to a fairly rewarding workweek for Chang, who beat the sore-ribbed Russian, 6-3, 6-4, 7-5, in the championshp at Hyatt Grand Champions. Chang leaped from No. 15 to No.

Derrick Rostagno of Brentwood switched rackets and found his game, keeping Andrei Chesnokov off balance Saturday with pinpoint drop shots and cross-court passes to reach the finals of the Volvo International. The victory capped a week of upsets at New Haven, Conn., where all but one of the 16 seeded players lost before the semifinals. Rostagno beat fifth-seeded Chesnokov, 7-6 (7-4), 6-3. Rostagno, ranked 79th in the world, faces Todd Woodbridge for the title.

Strike another blow for international relations. Right here in the California desert, in the heart of capitalistic glitter and opulence, a Russian tennis player from Moscow lost a match and still won the day Sunday. With a chance to shortchange a crowd of Americans, many of whom had paid the equivalent of lots of rubles to see the final of this Newsweek Champions Cup Tournament, Andrei Chesnokov turned goodwill ambassador.
