WTA Tour

EVENT: $520,000 Acura Classic.

SITE: Suburban Los Angeles.

SKED: Through Sunday.

SURFACE: Outdoor hard court.

TOP NAMES: Lindsay Davenport, Martina Hingis, Serena Williams, Mary Pierce, Alexandra Stevenson.

DEFENDING CHAMPION: Davenport.

NOTES: Monica Seles withdrew because of the left arm injury that forced her to pull out of her last two scheduled tournaments. No word on when she'll be healthy. Conchita Martinez has somewhat of a home-court advantage after recently moving to southern California from Spain. Iva Majoli, the former French Open champion, continues to struggle and needed a wild card to get into the main draw.

ATP Tour

EVENT: $2.2-million ATP Championships.

SITE: Suburban Cincinnati.

SKED: Through Sunday.

SURFACE: Outdoor hard court.

TOP NAMES: Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Patrick Rafter, Jim Courier, Tim Henman.

DEFENDING CHAMPION: Rafter.

NOTES: One of the major tuneups to the U.S. Open and it's packed with big-name players. Mal Washington, the former Wimbledon finalist who has been sidelined for several months with injuries, got a wild card into the main draw, but lost in the first round. Just like in Los Angeles last month, Agassi and Sampras are in opposite halves of the draw and could meet in the final.
