EVERT TO HALL OF FAME; SOUNDS OFF ON THE STATE OF THE GAME

     CHRIS EVERT, who will be inducted into the Int'l Tennis Hall
of Fame in July, "doubts any of today's top pros will stay with
the game" as long as she and her contemporaries did: "Nowadays,
you're grinding it out every match....I'll give Steffi (Graf)
another two years and she'll be out of the game.  If she takes a
break, maybe she would come back, but she's been carrying the
load for women's tennis."  Evert says the women's game "is in a
lull....They need to have rivalries and they need to have Monica
(Seles) and Jennifer (Capriati) back" (Doug Smith, USA TODAY,
1/25).
