Boxing: Holyfield
wins by decision
Evander Holyfield came back to
boxing early Sunday morning
with a victory, but it was anything
but a triumphal one.
The former heavyweight cham
pion scored a unanimous 12-
round decision over Alex Stewart
in a match that drew loud boos
from the crowd at the Convention
"I thought I fought a pretty
good fight/' said Holyfield, fight
ing for the first time sine he lost
the title to Riddick Bowe on Nov.
Holyfield not only failed to
take Stewart out, he never had
him in serious trouble and he
fought without much fire. In fact,
it seemed what Stewart failed yo
do was as much a factor in Holy-
field's victory as what the ex
champ did.

Highlights at Wimbledon take place off-court
Andremania hits England; tabloids placing
odds on 'Center Court battle' over Agassi
WIMBLEDON, England - If this is
Wimbledon, there must be love in the air,
scandal in the
tabloids, rain in the
No, wait, there's
no rain.
Instead, get set for
the battle of Centre
Court over the heart
and shaven body of
Andre Agassi: Holly
wood star Barbra
Streisand vs. Las Ve
gas sweetheart Wendi
Stewart, claws bared.
Agassi plays Monday against Richard
Krajicek, an intriguing match between the
defending champion, who has the game's
best return of serve, and the No. 9 seed,
who boasts one of the fastest serves.
But if it is true, as the tabs say, that
Streisand, 51, is flying back from Greece
aboard Agassi's private jet, and if it is
true his longtime girlfriend, Stewart, 21,
plans to confront her while they watch
this match from the guest box, then
there'll be far more attention on them
than the players.
Streisand, who spoke adoringly of the
23-year-old Agassi at the U.S. Open last
summer, reportedly had a secret ren
dezvous with him here last week.
Of course, it all may be nonsense, but
at Wimbledon it hardly matters, especial
ly when the tennis is dull, as it was most
of the first week.
Remember Beatlemania? Wimbledon
is in the throes of Andre-mania. Girls and
women squeal wherever Agassi goes,
snap pictures of his shaven torso, fight for
the sweaty shirts he flings into the crowd
at the end of a match. They touch him,
pinch him, cry over him.
"I'm totally in love with him. He's gor
geous," gushes Sarah Moore, 14, of Lon
"It's very hard on him," laments his
coach, Nick Bollettieri. "Everybody wants
a piece of him."
Krajicek just wants to cut him to pieces
with a serve-and-volley style that is
stronger than any Agassi has faced so far
in his comeback from a two-month layoff
due to tendinitis in the wrist.
Krajicek hasn't done anything signifi
cant at Wimbledon since his ill-advised
crack last year that 90 percent of the
women's players were "fat, lazy pigs."
He's still trying to live that down —
though he's asked about it after virtually
every match — and a victory over Agassi
might just make people forget that

Price wins Hartford Open
Pavin looses three-day lead with bogey on 11th
CROMWELL, Conn. — Nick Price,
using a borrowed putter, found the
touch that eluded him at the U.S. Open
and shot a 5-under-par 65 Sunday to win
the Greater Hartford Open by a stroke.
Price played bogey-free golf for the fi
nal 28 holes and finished the tournament
at 9-under 271, matching the low four-
round score on the 3-year-old course.
Dan Forsman and Roger Maltbie birdied
the final hole to finish at 8-under.
"I can't tell you how much this means
to me," Price said. "I played so well last
week (at the U.S. Open) and to end up
losing everything on the greens was just
so hard to accept especially since I was
putting so well recently.
"But this week has more than made
up for everything. I'm just glad I found
another putter."
Last week. Price became upset over
ads being run by the manufacturer of his
putter. So he borrowed a putter from De
nis Watson on Friday, and he started
making some putts Sunday.
Price birdied the eighth and ninth
holes to move into a tie with Corey Pavin
for the leaad at 7-under. He then parred
the next three holes and took over sole
possession of first when Pavin bogeyed
the 11th hole.
Price extended his lead to three
strokes when he birdied the 13th and
14th and parred the rest of the way in.
He nearly missed a 4-foot putt on the
17th, however.
"I wasn't sure whether to go outside
the hole or on the right edge," Price said.
"Eventually I hit it on the right lip and
just pulled it a little bit. I guess I had
enough pace on it. But I was very edgy
over that putt to say the least."
After two days of struggling with
winds up to 20 mph, the field played ex
cellent golf on the Tournament Players
Club at River Highlands, enjoying calm
skies and greens softened by early morn
ing showers that suspended play for 29
minutes. Thirty-one golfers shot below
Forsman and Maltbie also shot 65s
Sunday. It was the third time in five
years Forsman has finished second at
Hartford. Maltbie lost in a playoff to Mac
O'Grady at the GHO in 1986.
Pavin shot 1-under for the day and
finished fourth at 6-under. Brian Kamm
made seven birdies in a 64 to tie the
course record set by three golfers in the
opening round in 1991 and 1992.
LPGA Classic
Hamlin saves lead for win
SOMERS POINT, N.J. - Shelley
Hamlin birdied the 15th and 17th holes
after losing a three-stroke lead Sunday
and won the $450,000 ShopRite LPGA
Classic by two strokes in a record per
The victory was the third for the 44-
year-old golfer and her second since
breast cancer surgery two years ago.
Her 9-under-par total for 54 holes
broke the mark of 7-under set by Juli
Inkster in 1988.
Hamlin won the $67,500 top prize
by shooting a 1-under 70 and with
standing a challenge that at one point
saw eight players grouped within two
shots of the lead.
That came after Hamlin bogeyed the
par-3, 14th to fall into a tie for the lead
with Danielle Ammaccapane at 7-un-
der. Beth Daniel, Amy Benz and
Martha Faulconer were all one stroke
back, with defending champion Anne-
Marie Palli, Judy Dickinson and
Brandie Burton two off the lead.
Hamlin, who either shared or held
the lead after each round, then took con
trol at 360-yard, par-4, 16th. She hit her
second shot to within 12 feet and made
the putt to take the lead at 8-under.
Benz and Daniel both got within a
shot of the lead at 7-under with birdies
at the par-5 16th hole, but Hamlin gave
herself some breathing room making
an 8-foot birdie putt after Ammacca
pane, playing in the group in front of
her, bogeyed the hole.
That put Hamlin two shots ahead en
tering the tight 390-yard 18th hole. She
hit her drive down the left side of the
fairway and then knocked her iron to
within 10 feet to wrap up the victory.
Daniel, Benz and Dickinson tied for
second at 7-under while Ammacca
pane and Faulconer finished at 6-un
der. Palli and Burton were four shots
behind the winner.
Daniel, looking for her 28th career
victory and first since 1991, closed with
a 69 on the Create Bay Country Club
course, which for the first time this
week was not whipped by the winds.
Benz, who had a second-round,
tournament-best 66 to move into con
tention, finished with a 68 in her bid
for her first career victory.
