Christmas Eve in Aspen, Colo., and Andrea Jaeger will be alone, sitting by the phone, willing it not to ring. Kids don't die on this night, do they? "There are times I just have to be by myself," Jaeger said. "This is one of them." Christmas Eve in Aspen, and Jaeger will have the heat turned down in her cramped mountainside home to save money. The air will chill her pizza, maybe harden her toothpaste, and only amplify that phone. Somebody will call with good news tonight, won't they?

Los Angeles, your room is ready. Big enough to embrace the fears of a dying child. Cozy enough so there's just no room. Hardwood floors, sink-into-a-dream couches, and pillows that feel like teddy bears. Vaulted ceilings and stone fireplace and a tongue-dropping view, across two mountain peaks to a postcard they don't sell in hospitals.

Andrea Jaeger [July 19] appears to be an absolute gem and I am sure the kids love her. Her selfless actions offer an example to all and her self-deprecating manner is all the more endearing. It is quite obvious, for her, this a labor of love and nothing could be more fulfilling than that. Her efforts will help countless numbers of sick children to cope and will offer them the opportunity to experience simple pleasures, so often denied them, due to lack of circumstance or money. A beautiful story and I would like to thank Mr. Plaschke for bringing it to everyone's attention.

On a day not fit for noontime outdoor exertion, the Acura Classic gamely pressed on Wednesday, sending its tennis players out into a blistering heat. The toasty day at Manhattan Beach claimed one seeded player and very nearly another as the $450,000 tournament entered the second round. The temperature of the court surface at Manhattan Country Club was 122 degrees before the afternoon match between second-seeded Monica Seles and Sandrine Testud of France.

There is the public image of the All England Club and chances are it is a bit like when the shirts came back with a little too much starch. Stiff, unyielding and a little slow to loosen up. Then there is the private, behind-the-scenes image. Underneath the cliched break-no-rules exterior of restraint is a completely different appearance.

Etched in the memory of tennis fans everywhere is the picture of a child named Andrea Jaeger, pigtails flapping as she bounced around the courts at the shrines of the game, Roland Garros and Wimbledon. While others her age were experiencing pimples and puberty, she was experiencing the clay of Paris and the grass of Centre Court, in front of sellout crowds in the thousands and television audiences in the millions. She was not merely an early-rounder. She was a finalist in both events.

They were the two youngest finalists in a title match since the start of the open era. Jennifer Capriati, then 15, defeated Monica Seles, 17, in a third-set tiebreaker here in 1991. It was her first victory against Seles in a sanctioned tournament and Capriati could have driven off the La Costa Resort & Spa grounds in her new convertible. But, of course, she couldn't. Capriati did not have a driver's license yet.

Mary Slaney, Sandra Farmer-Patrick and an unnamed athlete were suspended Saturday by track and field's world governing body, pending a hearing by their national federation on alleged drug use. "If their federation is reluctant to act immediately in accordance with IAAF rules, then the IAAF council will now suspend the athlete from competition until the national federation decides a ban or not," IAAF president Primo Nebiolo said.
