Jan-Michael Gambill was waxing poetic Thursday about the similarities of his native Spokane, Wash., and Milwaukee--apparently there are some--and mentioned the foliage here. His Davis Cup teammate, Justin Gimelstob, leaned forward and took over the proceedings at the draw ceremony downtown. "I don't know about the foliage, or whatever that is, but we got to see [Mark] McGwire hit his home run on Sunday," Gimelstob said. "That was sweet. And we had a couple of those hot dog things.

Jan-Michael Gambill channeled his fury over a two-sentence mention in a column written about Andy Roddick into some positive tennis energy Saturday. Gambill had just upset the fourth-seeded Roddick, 7-5, 6-3, in the semifinals of the Mercedes-Benz Cup at UCLA. But this performance, one of controlled intelligence, careful serving from the sunny side of the court, unerring passing shots and tranquil acceptance of some uneven officiating, seemed secondary to Gambill afterward. He had been dissed.

I went to Court 18 on Monday to see the player who last year was called the future of U.S. men's tennis by no less an expert than Pete Sampras. Sampras since has revised his forecast, but apparently not everyone got the word. When I arrived, I found the stadium filled with spectators. I had to stand outside the walls, which, fortunately for me and others, were slatted so that we could at least glimpse the action. It was like watching through Levolor blinds.

The clouded future of American men's tennis looked slightly more promising after Day 2 at the All England Club. Whether it's more than a fleeting moment, of course, will be determined later this fortnight. Still, the biggest upset so far at Wimbledon came Tuesday from 23-year-old Jan-Michael Gambill of Spokane, Wash. Gambill, ranked 56th, took out seventh-seeded Lleyton Hewitt of Australia, 6-3, 6-2, 7-5, using a blend of power and poise.

Bob Bryan remembers his days as a ball boy at the Los Angeles professional tennis event. He played tag, hide and seek, and "didn't watch much tennis." Then one day, the directors removed Bryan from his ball-hawking duties. Why? "Because I was getting autographs from the players while they were playing," Bryan said. Fast forward to Sunday afternoon.

Tom Fish had one word to describe his Wimbledon experience. Well, two, actually. "So surreal," he said. Fish was standing on the balcony below the players' restaurant not long after his son, Mardy, landed in the third round at Wimbledon with an emphatic performance. Fish served 16 aces and defeated Jan-Michael Gambill, 6-4, 6-4, 6-1, in 1 hour 24 minutes in the second round Wednesday, and next will face fourth-seeded Roger Federer of Switzerland.
