It's a long way from Wimbledon's Centre Court to southwest Colorado. For Andrea Jaeger, the spiritual journey has been even longer. At 14, she was a pig-tailed phenom, brandishing every stroke in the tennis repertoire with a swagger that rivaled Jimmy Connors's. Most times, nothing thrilled her like winning -- especially if she felt she had a point to prove. Other times she was so tortured by the cost of success that she didn't try -- including, she says, intentionally losing the 1983 Wimbledon final.

The waist-length pigtails are gone, replaced by a layer of dusty blond hair so short it doesn't need a brush. Those '80s tennis skirts are history too. In their place, a black nun's habit belted with a band of white rope that her dogs like to chew. One constant: Sister Andrea Jaeger isn't quite who everyone might think she is.

Andrea Jaeger [July 19] appears to be an absolute gem and I am sure the kids love her. Her selfless actions offer an example to all and her self-deprecating manner is all the more endearing. It is quite obvious, for her, this a labor of love and nothing could be more fulfilling than that. Her efforts will help countless numbers of sick children to cope and will offer them the opportunity to experience simple pleasures, so often denied them, due to lack of circumstance or money. A beautiful story and I would like to thank Mr. Plaschke for bringing it to everyone's attention.

The key figure in the alleged extortion plot against television anchorwoman Jann Carl was ordered on Wednesday to stand trial in Los Angeles Superior Court. Municipal Court Judge Karl Jaeger, after a six-day preliminary hearing of the case against producer Gil Cabot, ruled that there is sufficient evidence that Cabot attempted to extort $30,000 from the KTLA-TV newswoman. Cabot is accused of telling Carl that he could make sure sexually explicit pictures of her would not be published in return for a payoff.

The Raiders' most lethal scoring weapon has never taken a meaningful note in a team meeting. He doesn't attend practices because, well, they bore him. He takes leisurely lunches and daydreams of lowering his golf handicap. His coach, Art Shell, never speaks with him. "Well, he says 'Hi,' " the player confessed, "but it's not like I'm going to go up and ask him about some blocking scheme. I've got friends, they ask me about the offense and defense, and I don't have a clue. I really don't."

Nineteen-year-old Andrea Jaeger's life used to be dominated by tennis. That was during her youth. "When I was young, I got up, practiced, played a match, and went to sleep," she said. "If I played eight hours a day, I figured I'd get better." She got very good very fast. Jaeger was the third-ranked woman player in the world in 1982 and '83, but then suffered a rotator cuff injury to her right shoulder last August that led her to believe her career might be over.

Spikes voluntarily agreed to enter a domestic violence counseling program, said his agent, Drew Rosenhaus. Police were called to the home by Spikes' wife, Stacey.

The Raiders are about to sign John Lee, the record-setting UCLA kicker who bombed out in St. Louis after being drafted higher than any other kicker in the 1980s. Lee's agent, Leigh Steinberg, says they have reached agreement. Lee will compete with Chris Bahr, who has been the Raider kicker as long as the team has been in Los Angeles, but who struggled last season. "I feel great," Lee said Wednesday from his home in Downey. "I was disappointed, the way things went with St. Louis.

Happy holidays from Andrea's kids, who have moved inside on this bone-chilling December evening and taken over the most exclusive club in town. They crowd a small hardwood floor and dance--the teenager with Hodgkin's disease, the little boy with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the little girl with one leg. The strobe lights bounce off a bald head, bruised arms, metal crutches, and 20 smiles as wide as the Rocky Mountains. Some of these gravely ill kids are recovering, some are not.

There is the public image of the All England Club and chances are it is a bit like when the shirts came back with a little too much starch. Stiff, unyielding and a little slow to loosen up. Then there is the private, behind-the-scenes image. Underneath the cliched break-no-rules exterior of restraint is a completely different appearance.

Back in 1884, Lewis Tomlin saw the virtues of selling cozy underwear to the English. Fascinated by the findings of Gustav Jaeger, a German professor who posited the benefits of wearing wool next to the skin, Tomlin opened the first Jaeger shop in London and soon had the likes of Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw and Henry Morton Stanley caught up in his woolen undies cult.

Voters will be asked to decide one county judicial race on Nov. 5. Judge Karl W. Jaeger is the more qualified candidate for the seat on the Los Angeles Superior Court. Jaeger, a Los Angeles Municipal Court judge, faces one opponent for this open seat, Pat Murphy, whom local bar leaders rate as unqualified for elevation from his post on the Citrus Municipal Court. Jaeger, by contrast, has earned a reputation as a solid jurist with deep experience.

Jeff Jaeger watched the kick sail through the uprights, glanced toward the Oakland Raiders' bench as if to say: Take that. Cut by the Raiders in training camp, Jaeger kicked a 30-yard field goal with 11 seconds to play--his fourth field goal of the game and third of the fourth quarter--to give the Chicago Bears a 19-17 victory Sunday.
