Wink Article on Anna's BIG WIN at Sea Island

SEA ISLAND, Ga. (AP) -- Anna Kournikova began preparations for the French Open and put her injured side to a test in a first-round victory Wednesday in the Cloister Cup.

Kournikova, recovering from a tear in her left abductor muscle April 9 at the Family Circle Cup in Charleston, S.C., beat Maria Fernanda Alves 4-6, 6-4, 3-0. Alves retired after injuring her left thigh in the third set.

``It's not the best match I've played,'' said Kournikova, who needs the work to get set for the French open later this month. ``That's why I'm here. I need to play as many matches as I can.''

Kournikova was rusty from the monthlong layoff. She double-faulted seven times and survived a lackluster performance to advance to Thursday's second round, against Gabriela Volekova.

Down 4-1 in the first set, Kournikova battled back to within 5-4, but lost the next game in deuce to drop the first set. Kournikova lost the first two games of the second set, then rallied to tie it at 4-4 before winning the final two games.

She took the first three games of the third set with ease, as Alves tried to play through her injury.

Kournikova argued several line calls. Given a warning for delay of game after going up 5-4 in the second set, she responded by saying, ``I'm scared.''

Another time, she rolled her eyes at a call, and several times voiced her displeasure with officials rulings.

=============================

Why the hell is there a article from a 25K on Yahoo?

"Gee, Quinn... I hope that little foray of yours into Geekland just now is the result of heat exhaustion, and not an unpleasant side effect of all that tutoring. I mean, you're not turning into a brain, are you?" -- Sandi

Check the challenger forum. They have all the info I think.
