EVENT NOTES

          In Miami, Dan LeBatard, on the youth movement in
     women's tennis: "They are bold, boorish brats.  And, man,
     isn't it wonderful?  These irritating female tennis players
     -- cocky in one breath, crying in the next -- are doing no
     less than saving their sport. ... Two things make tennis
     move -- rivalries and personalities. ... These girls have
     the potential to give us both" (MIAMI HERALD, 7/3).  NBC's
     John McEnroe said that the "biggest problem" with men's
     tennis is that "too many players give an inconsistent
     effort, even at Grand Slam events."  McEnroe: "How can these
     guys who make millions of dollars a year appear not to care
     at Wimbledon?  It's embarrassing" (AP/DETROIT NEWS, 7/6).
