American qualifier Mark Keil posted the biggest victory of his career when he beat Sampras, 6-2, 7-6 (7-2).

Someone needs to check Chanda Rubin for a pulse. The 19-year-old from Lafayette, La., has been breezing though the field at the Acura Classic in Manhattan Beach with such ease that she ought to be dizzy, or least have an elevated heart rate. Instead, Rubin has remained nonplussed in victory. So it was Saturday as she upset world No. 2 Arantxa Sanchez Vicario, 6-3, 6-1. In the other semifinal, Conchita Martinez defeated Yayuk Basuki, 6-1, 7-6 (7-4).

They are serving up far more questions than answers at Wimbledon, where the courts are hard and fast, like the rules. So far, this has been a very unusual Wimbledon, with or without Andre Agassi's chest hair. It's because of something even more basic--the weather.

American men on Spanish clay. The very imagery was gilded in gold and silver, the colors of the Olympic medals that Jim Courier and Michael Chang would carry in shoulder bags their next time through El Prat Airport. Courier was 13-1 on clay this year and has won the world's biggest clay-court tennis tournament, the French Open, twice. Chang won the French Open in 1989 and smiled when he likened the red-brown powder at Vall d'Hebron to "Nestle's Quik," soft and smooth and sweet.

It's Todd Martin for the defense, which is probably right because he is the only American left in the Italian Open field. Martin defended U.S. players Wednesday after Thomas Muster said they duck European clay-court tennis tournaments. Today, 15th-seeded Martin plays top-seeded and defending champion Muster in the third round in Rome after beating Alberto Berasategui, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4. "It's unfounded to say they don't care about these tournaments," Martin said.

Venus Williams would have the world believe she isn't really excited about playing the No. 1-ranked player tonight. Oh, yeah, Martina Hingis, who has won 50 of 51 matches in 1997. "Special, I don't know what you mean. . . . It's nothing special," said Williams, who looked formidable in defeating Argentina's Florencia Labat, 6-3, 6-2, Tuesday in the Toshiba Tennis Classic at La Costa. "Well, not really. You still have to go out there and beat the player and play the next round.
