Greg Patton, storyteller and coach with the U.S. Tennis Assn., knows his way around words, cynical reporters and, more important, teenage boys with short attention spans. He coached a junior team in the '80s that will probably put several members in the hall of fame--Pete Sampras, Jim Courier, Michael Chang. Lately, his Sampras and Courier stories have been losing steam, not generating as much mileage with the Gen-14 crowd. But one new name pulls them away from PlayStation.

Unseeded Thomas Enqvist followed his upset of No. 2 Andre Agassi with a comeback victory Sunday over defending champion Michael Chang to win the U.S. Indoor tennis tournament in Philadelphia. The 20-year-old Swede picked up $110,000 for his fourth career title, losing the first set 0-6 before coming back to win the final two, 6-4, 6-0. Enqvist showed some life to open the second set by serving four aces at more than 115 miles an hour in the first game.

Thomas Enqvist landed in the men's final of the Indian Wells tennis tournament here Saturday much like that airplane at Burbank a few weeks ago. He belly-flopped. The Swede, whose game is nowhere near as bland as his personality, defeated Australia's Mark Philippoussis in a semifinal match of the Tennis Masters Series event that was as exciting as it was flawed, as dramatic as it was frustrating.

Goran Ivanisevic's self-fulfilling prophecy has come true. No longer will the Infiniti Open's top-seeded player have to endure boring L.A. Ivanisevic wrote his own ticket out of town in Saturday night's semifinal match after Thomas Enqvist eliminated him, 6-7 (7-3), 6-4, 6-4. Ivanisevic, ranked No.

The scenery was different on their way to the Australian Open men's final: Thomas Enqvist of Sweden cut through the heart of Australia, taking out local icons Patrick Rafter and Mark Philippoussis in consecutive rounds. Tenth-seeded Yevgeny Kafelnikov of Russia sliced up last year's Davis Cup team from the United States, Jim Courier and Todd Martin. But their routes had some similarities. Enqvist, 24, needed 21 sets to reach his first Grand Slam final.

Son of Bjorn, Mats or Stefan, he is not. Sure, Thomas Enqvist is Swedish and, like his tennis-playing countrymen before him, the guy is decidedly low-key. But by design, and necessity, he is his own kind of player. You won't see him serving and volleying, a la Edberg. Or parked well beyond the baseline, creating chaos with topspin. His personal mixture of attacking tennis is overwhelming enough to land him at No. 8 in the world.

Yevgeny Kafelnikov of Russia knew it would be this way, making two predictions before the Australian Open men's final. 1. It would be a long match. 2. His opponent, Thomas Enqvist of Sweden, had a tendency to get nervous in the key moments, not choking, but perhaps misfiring on his shots in the latter stages. Two for two. And now, the 10th-seeded Kafelnikov is two for two in Grand Slam finals, as he defeated Enqvist, 4-6, 6-0, 6-3, 7-6 (7-1), in 2 hours 26 minutes here today.

Thomas Enqvist, winless in six previous meetings with Pete Sampras, shocked the top-seeded tennis player in straight sets, 6-3, 6-3, Friday in the quarterfinals of the $2.2-million ATP Championship at Mason, Ohio. "I just ran into a player on fire," Sampras said. "I've never run into a right-handed serve that was so overwhelming. I never felt into the match." A year ago in Montreal, Enqvist had gotten to match point against Sampras, then lost.
