Ivan Lendl wore sweat pants during the Tournament of Champions final Monday, but he hardly broke a sweat. The world's top-ranked player routed unseeded Jaime Yzaga of Peru, 6-2, 6-1, to become the first three-time winner of this clay-court tournament on a chilly, windy day at the West Side Tennis Club in New York. "It was very cold and unpleasant," Lendl said. "I don't enjoy wearing sweat pants because it's uncomfortable, but today it was necessary. "I don't think he liked the conditions any better than I did. I was just able to overpower him."
