They play the same sport at Wimbledon, but the comparison stops there. There won't be any royalty on hand, or strawberries and cream for sale, when the Los Angeles Strings kick off their 14-game TeamTennis season at the Forum tonight at 7:30 against the Sacramento Capitals.

John Lloyd feels the Los Angeles Strings have a good chance to win the World TeamTennis championship this season. The Strings' player-coach has the same nucleus as last year, when a rookie named Jimmy Connors led the team to the championship game, only to lose to the Atlanta Thunder with Martina Navratilova. "I think our team is definitely as strong as last year, if not better," said Lloyd, whose team opens its 1992 season at 7 tonight in the Forum against the San Antonio Racquets.

John Lloyd is in the twilight of a mediocre tennis career playing for a struggling team in a league that has a tendency to come and go. In 16 years of professional tennis, Lloyd was never ranked higher than 23rd in singles, and that was back in 1978. If he hadn't been married for nearly eight years to Chris Evert, few outside of England, where he is a golden-boy idol, or Wendy Turnbull, with whom he twice won the Wimbledon mixed doubles title, would have heard of him.

Sports? You want sports? Cable's got sports. So many non-stop athletic contests, in fact, that the average fan might just die of exhaustion in front of the TV set. Sports programming in Southern California has exploded. Today, thanks to cable, any fan of any sport--from basketball to billiards to baseball--can have a front-row seat in living-room comfort. In addition to the decade-old, all-sports national cable channel, Connecticut-based ESPN, two Los Angeles-based sports channels have popped up on cable during the past four years.
