Amelie Mauresmo says that when she's not decorating a tennis court at Il Foro Italico with her elegant shot-making, she loves Rome "for the pasta and mozzarella cheese." Once again she's the big cheese on the cafe latte-hued clay of Il Foro, winning the Italian Open for the second straight year. Mauresmo, ranked No. 3, geared up midway through the second set to escape being part of a recent custom, defeating Patty Schnyder, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, on Sunday.

The interview with 20-year-old Swiss tennis star Patty Schnyder and her 42-year-old German guru, Rainer Harnecker, would not have been complete without fruit salad all around. They ate fruit Tuesday during a session of interviews at Grand Champions Resort. When one round was completed, he kissed her and bounded off, returning with a huge bowl of fruit. Without fresh squeezed orange juice around--he has her drinking two to three liters a day--this was the next best thing.

Patty Schnyder's Grand Slam close-up finally arrived at the Australian Open, one guru and one private investigator-turned-husband later. Until Schnyder's 7-6 (2), 6-3 quarterfinal victory today against Lisa Raymond, it had been a tale of two Rainers for the mercurial and talented Swiss left-hander.

She is not the 14-year-old who came within two matches of winning the 1990 French Open in her Grand Slam debut, charming the world with her groundstrokes and precocious kid-speak, referring to Napoleon as that "little dead dude." Nor is she the troubled, angst-ridden teenager who had brushes with the law amid a cloud of drug use. Of course, these days, that plot would be practically light-hearted on an episode of "Dawson's Creek."

The public address system intruded during second-set action of 10th-seeded Patty Schnyder's match against Tamarine Tanasugarn, making something of an unforced error Friday at the Evert Cup. "Hello, hello. This is a live shot." Schnyder even chuckled at the miscue. It wasn't surprising something strange happened during one of her matches, in what has been a series of strange moments in 1999 for Schnyder.

It is a new year, but the same old deal in women's tennis. It is time for another Grand Slam event, the Australian Open, which means it is also time for women's tennis to eat another of its young. Women's tennis is death and taxes. The names change, but never the certainty of melodrama. At last year's French Open, No. 1 player Martina Hingis lost to veteran Steffi Graf in the final, left the court in tears before all the ceremonies had taken place and had to be dragged back out by her mother.

Patty Schnyder did not pose for Vogue, Rolling Stone or GQ last year. Of the highly hyped teens on the women's tennis tour, Schnyder won more tournaments--five--in 1998 than Venus and Serena Williams and Anna Kournikova combined. She beat Steffi Graf at the U.S. Open and rival Martina Hingis at the Grand Slam Cup. Then, she turned 20.
