He is arguably the Southland's preeminent Spanish-language talk-show host--and yet his audience varies from a mere 13,000 to 26,000 at any time. He is the star of Latino talk radio station KWKW-AM (1330), yet he didn't learn Spanish until age 7. He champions Latino causes, is a Republican and considers himself religious, yet frequently questions the teachings of the Catholic church. His listeners cannot see him, yet he invariably comes to work in a suit and silk tie.

Australian Wendy Turnbull, playing a shrewd tactical game, defeated Marianne Werdel of Bakersfield, 6-2, 6-4, Thursday to advance to the third round of a $150,000 Virginia Slims tournament at New Orleans. Turnbull, seeded fifth, placed her shots carefully, firing low to force the 5-foot-10 Werdel to bend and reach. "She's a big girl, so naturally she's not going to want to bend for her shots," said Turnbull, who had watched her opponent in practice.

In a rematch of this year's Wimbledon finalists, Boris Becker defeated Kevin Curren, 6-7 (8-6), 7-6 (7-2), 6-3, Wednesday to claim the Tulsa (Okla.) Tennis Challenge. The hard-serving Curren, playing with a sprained left ankle, allowed only two points off his serve in the first set. In the tiebreaker, Becker, who beat Curren at Wimbledon, took a 4-1 edge and then led, 6-3. Curren held serve to trail 6-5, and Becker double-faulted twice, and Curren unleashed an ace for the win.

Shaken by the news of the earthquake in his hometown, 18-year-old Leonardo Lavalle of Mexico lost, 7-5, 6-1, to Juan Aguilera of Spain Friday in the quarterfinals of the $100,000 Martini Open tennis tournament at Geneva. Lavalle, the Wimbledon junior champion, upset Switzerland's Heinz Gunthardt Thursday to advance to the round of eight. But unable to reach his parents by telephone after the Mexico City earthquake, he appeared distracted in falling to Aguilera.
