Jaime Barajas was reclining in a chair and toweling off after a convincing second-round victory last week in a pre-qualifying tournament for the Los Angeles Open when he was asked to recall his greatest victory. Barajas--6 feet 1, 175 pounds, broad shoulders--had just trounced Arthur Tombakian of Los Angeles, 6-2, 6-4. He had routed his opponent with a vicious serve-and-volley attack. But the question drew a blank expression and he fell silent. Barajas smiled weakly.

Steve Wiere had a flashback Thursday as he talked about his qualifying-round entry in the Volvo Tennis of Los Angeles Tournament. He remembered Pete Sampras, the No. 1 player in the world coming off the Wimbledon championship, had entered the main draw. Sudden enthusiasm was injected into his mood. "I grew up with Pete Sampras," said Wiere, a former Calabasas High player who spent three uneventful years on the pro tour. "I've played him five times and never lost."
