Court 16 of the All-England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club is a strange place to see a familiar face. Especially when you have traveled thousands of miles to make your professional tennis debut on one of the world's most famous rectangles of grass. Just ask Jeff Tarango of Manhattan Beach, 20 years old and fresh from the halls of Stanford University.

After winning the men's doubles championship at the 37th annual Adoption Guild Charity Tennis Tournament on Sunday at the Newport Beach Tennis Club, Jim Pugh ate a cheeseburger, changed shirts, then teamed with Kathy May-Fritz to win a three-set marathon for the mixed doubles championship. Pugh, once a member of the world's top-ranked doubles team, teamed with Bruce Man Son Hing to beat Carlos Bustos and Bill Behrens, 6-4, 7-6 (7-4), in the finals of the 6.5 men's doubles division.

They lost last year in the Wimbledon doubles final, but they're back for another try. The top-seeded team of Rick Leach of Laguna Beach and Jim Pugh of Rancho Palos Verdes will meet South Africans Pieter Aldrich and Danie Visser in the final today. Leach and Pugh, two-time Australian Open doubles champions, had a shot at a third Grand Slam title here last year but lost to John Fitzgerald and Anders Jarryd. "I think we learned a lot after last year," Leach said.

Certainly, it would have been understandable if Peter Lundgren had come out flat and uninspired Sunday for his match against Jim Pugh in the $293,400 Transamerica Open final. The 22-year-old Swede had stayed on the court just past 10:30 Saturday night and pulled off the biggest upset of his career, defeating No. 1-ranked Ivan Lendl in an extremely tense semifinal. Lendl held two match points, while Lundgren squandered four before securing the victory.

The biggest success stories of this week's Newsweek Champions Cup tennis tournament have been today's finalists, Andrei Chesnokov and Michael Chang. But the biggest story has been Terry Hedges, a.k.a. the Sandman. Hedges isn't exactly known here, which probably suits him just fine. His name appears on no draw sheets, nor on any list of tournament officials, sponsors or donors.

The two most-asked questions about the U.S. Davis Cup team are these: (1) Who's playing? (2) Who's not? Always a steamy breeding ground for controversy, the U.S. team might have cooled off a little now that doubles specialists Rick Leach and Jim Pugh seem to have become the answer to question No. 2, perhaps permanently.

The United States Tennis Assn. left itself open for some fairly intense second-guessing when it deposed its Davis Cup doubles team of Rick Leach and Jim Pugh less than two weeks before a semifinal showdown against Germany. Leach and Pugh, who have never lost a Davis Cup doubles match, were replaced Tuesday by Scott Davis and David Pate, who have never won one. Actually, Davis and Pate will make their Davis Cup debuts as part of the U.S. team's defense of its title Sept.

Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Jim Courier and Michael Chang were right, even if they didn't exactly endear themselves to the cause of American tennis in the process: The United States didn't need them to beat Spain in the Davis Cup quarterfinals.

The United States, that noted clay court tennis power, laid claim to its first Davis Cup title in eight years Saturday, playing on a surface about as foreign as Pat Cash's accent. The United States, which never had held a final on clay, clinched its 29th Davis Cup with a 6-4, 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (7-2) victory by Rick Leach and Jim Pugh over Australia's doubles team of Cash and John Fitzgerald. While loudspeakers blared the song "God Bless the U.S.A." and Leach blasted a ball into the upper deck, U.S.

Gary Muller of South Africa rallied in the third set to beat defending champion Jim Pugh, 6-3, 6-7, 6-3, in the quarterfinals of a $150,000 grass-court tournament at Newport, R.I. "I don't think it was my play that won it," said Muller, who came back from an 0-2 deficit in the final set. "Maybe it was a combination of a little luck, a little bit of my good shots and maybe he didn't play so well on big points."

Brad Gilbert, the only high-seeded player left in the Volvo International tennis tournament at Stratton Mountain, Vt., took advantage of David Wheaton's match-point double fault Saturday to join Jim Pugh in today's final. Gilbert, who was runner-up last week in Washington, was pushed to three sets by Wheaton, a surprise semifinalist who upset top-seeded Andre Agassi in the third round Thursday. Gilbert won, 5-7, 7-6 (7-5), 6-4.

For the Americans, who have momentarily quit feuding and having their feelings hurt, the Davis Cup match that begins today at a converted soccer stadium on the banks of the Danube is a chance to reach the finals for the first time in six years. For the Austrians, who have temporarily stopped calling each other names, the best-of-five competition is something like a Holy Day of National Recognition, the biggest sports event in years that is not performed on skis.
