(Regarding the ouster of Robert Seguso from the Indian Wells tournament:) Oh my, a tennis chair umpire with guts, with courage, with convictions? Bronze him. Clone him. Make him commissioner of all tennis. Have him umpire all matches that include John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors or better yet, have him umpire all tennis matches. It is time. GLENN COLE Bakersfield

Is this pressure? For the first time in five years, the United States has a new Davis Cup doubles team. Rick Leach and Jim Pugh, who think they are long overdue for Davis Cup play, will make their debut Saturday against Mexico at La Costa, but they already are ducking volleys. As for not being selected to the U.S. Davis Cup squad before, Leach and Pugh have been fairly outspoken about that--angering the doubles team they have replaced.

It took them about 2 hours longer than they wanted it to, but Ken Flach and Robert Seguso won the second gold medal for the United States in Olympic tennis here Saturday. The top-seeded American team was cruising long after winning the first two sets, 6-3, 6-4, against Emilio Sanchez and Sergio Casal of Spain. And they had a 5-3 lead in a third-set tie-breaker with Flach serving.

The record shows that Robert Seguso lost to Jimmy Connors in the second round of the $385,000 Stella Artois tennis tournament, but Seguso thought he had another opponent. Seguso seemed headed for a victory over Connors when a questionable call turned the match around, and the third-seeded Connors eventually scored a 6-4, 6-7, 10-8 win Wednesday at London's Queens Club. Leading, 8-7, in the final set, Seguso hit a backhand that would have put him up, 15-40, but the shot was called out.

Among the many ways to lose tennis matches, some players use the conventional straight-set upset method, which is the path Boris Becker and Stefan Edberg followed Thursday. Then there comes a real trailblazer, someone who finds a way to lose that is so surprising, so novel, that almost no one can believe it. Take Robert Seguso, for instance. Here he is playing Andre Agassi in the round of 16 in one of the bigger tournaments in North America and he loses while the third set is still being played.

All the stories here of sacrifice, heroics and commitment to the Olympic spirit have pretty much bypassed the tennis venue. After all, how great a sacrifice is it to take a couple of weeks off the tour and maybe have your annual income slip just under $300,000? Headlines in the Korean press have consistently referred to the tennis Olympians as "the Millionaires," which is kind of unfair, since there are still half a dozen or so who aren't.
