WIMBLEDON GOES ON WITHOUT TOP NAMES IN DRAW

     In Houston, Mike McDaniel compliments HBO's Wimbledon
coverage, adding Billie Jean King, Martina Navratilova and Mary
Carillo "have proved to be a terrific broadcasting trio" (HOUSTON
CHRONICLE, 6/28).  NBC begins 34-hours of Wimbledon coverage
tomorrow. In Philadelphia, Bernard Fernandez writes the upset-
ridden tournament is NBC's "nightmare."  If Pete Sampras and
Steffi Graf don't advance to the finals, "NBC might have to use a
magnifying glass to spot its Nielsen ratings" (PHILA. DAILY NEWS,
6/28).
