TENNIS: Meilen Tu beat Alexandra Stevenson 7-6 (7-5), 6-4 in the first round of the Bank of the West Classic in Stanford, Calif. Tu plays defending champion and fourth-seed Kim Clijsters tonight.

GOLF: WorldCom lost its namesake PGA Tour event, less than one day after the troubled telecommunications company filed for bankruptcy. Heritage Classic Foundation said it terminated its contract with the company, which owns MCI _ the nation's No. 2 long-distance carrier. "Our golf tournament represents an enormous economic impact for our entire community which we are not willing to jeopardize," Heritage board chairman Joe Fraser said.
