FOX SAYS IT EXPECTS NBC/HBO TO HOLD WIMBLEDON RIGHTS

     "It may be posturing," but Fox has said that HBO and NBC
will retain Wimbledon rights.  The rights will probably be
awarded Friday, and Fox TV Chair says "it's difficult" to bid
against the incumbent network because the bid has to exceed by
20% to win (Richard Sandomir, N.Y. TIMES, 11/15).
