Perhaps it's fitting that the Silver Lining Foundation, run by former professional player Andrea Jaeger, has its main fund-raising dinner during the Acura Classic on Thursday at the La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad. A figure of hope and inspiration will be returning to the WTA Tour for the first time in nearly 15 months. Corina Morariu, 24, abruptly returned home to Boca Raton, Fla., from Europe in May 2001 when she started suffering from nosebleeds and bruising.

Corina Morariu's comeback continued Sunday with her first singles match in over a year.

Monica Seles' resurgence last summer in Southern California won't be repeated. In fact, the chronic foot injury that put her out of the Acura Classic and the JPMorgan Chase Open at Manhattan Beach could raise more questions about her tennis future.

The tougher the player, the tougher she plays. That's the kind of week it has been for Christina Moros. Moros, the Sarasota, Fla., steamroller, has been gaining momentum on approach to today's final of the Girls' 16 National Tennis Championships at Morley Field. Her performance in Friday's semifinal was not only as good as she has played all week, Moros thought it was her best performance of the year. "Everything was working," she said. "I've gotten better as the matches have gotten tougher."

As much as Pete Sampras has struggled over the last two years, he has managed to play terrific tennis during the U.S. Open. That won't be as easy this time, thanks to Wednesday's draw at New York. The four-time Open champion, seeded 17th, could face 15th-seeded Guillermo Canas in the third round, No. 3 Tommy Haas in the fourth, followed by either No. 5 Tim Henman or No. 11 Andy Roddick. And that's just to reach the semifinals.
