Steffi Graf might be more seriously injured than she has let on. Graf's long-standing back injury was cited Tuesday as the reason for her late withdrawal from doubles, where she was to team with Martina Navratilova. Graf's multiple back problems--from bone spurs to chronic muscle spasms--are increasingly keeping her off the court and may prematurely end her career. An announcement late Tuesday night from the Women's Tennis Assn.

Anke Huber was experiencing all the wrong feelings at just the wrong time. She was up, 4-0, in the third set, leading Irina Spirlea after fighting through a zone of bad play in the second set of a quarterfinal match at the Acura Classic at Manhattan Beach on Friday. It was a time in the match when Huber should have been at her most emphatic, a time to capitalize on momentum and finish it out, having already squandered a match point in the second set.

What gall Georgia Frontiere has, saying she might keep the Rams in Anaheim if a new stadium is built. . . . It's not the stadium that stinks, it's the team. . . . I mean, has anybody ever left Anaheim Stadium on a Sunday afternoon and refused to come back because the view was terrible, the seats were uncomfortable, the neighborhood was dangerous, the traffic was unbearable, or the Ram fans were rowdy? . . . The Rams used to be a hot ticket in Orange County. . . .

This is for all those out there with shaky serves and a nagging inability to close out a tennis match. You might say Elena Dementieva is almost one of those people -- her nervous struggles with the serve are often the same struggles of fans. Which is why her performance at the Home Depot Center at Carson on Sunday was especially gratifying for the Russian, as she overcame her nerves, her serve and, more important, Jelena Jankovic of Serbia, a woman having a breakthrough tournament.

After missing the playoffs the past seven years, the Milwaukee Bucks are turning to a coach known best for his teams' postseason failures. The Bucks signed former Seattle SuperSonic Coach George Karl to a four-year deal Saturday to replace Chris Ford, who was fired last week. Over the past six seasons, the SuperSonics won more games than any NBA team except the Chicago Bulls.

Fingers and toes. Parents count them within the first few seconds of their child's life, an anxious inventory. I remember the feeling of panic at the birth of my son, now 4, when I thought I counted six toes on one foot. I remember the relief when my recount came up with the more traditional number. When Randy Sobek was born 5 1/2 years ago, the initial inventory was fine, except that the four fingers on his left hand were pale. Somehow he had been pressing on them wrong in the womb.

At this time last year, women's tennis was expectantly awaiting the return of Monica Seles and fighting over what ranking she would be given. On the eve of yet another final between Steffi Graf and Arantxa Sanchez Vicario, it was thought that Seles would be the player who might break Graf's stranglehold on the game. What Seles' tentative return proved is that most of the time only Graf has any bearing on whether she will win or lose a match.
