They chanted and cheered for Marcelo Rios to beat Andre Agassi and overtake Pete Sampras, and that's what he did. While he raucous sellout crowd of 14,'000 exchanged shouts of "Chi-le! Chi-le!" and "U-S-A! U-S-A!," Rios rose to-the occasion with a near-flawless performance. He dominated Agassi 75, 6-3, 6-4 to win Lipton and claim the No. 1 ranking from Sampras. RIOS Not bad for a guy carrying a nation's expectations on his shoulders. "Being the best player in the world for Chile is something, like, not normal," Rios said. "I feel proud." The 22-year-old Santiago native is the first South American to be No. 1 since the ATP Tour rankings began in 1973. Until this year, Rios was known primarily for ill-mannered behavior that made him unpopular with other players and the media. But he smiled Sunday and threw his racket only once, tossing it happily into the stands after winning match point. The former bad boy is now the best. Rios, who entered the tournament at No. 3, will end Sampras' streak of 102 consecutive weeks at No. 1 when the new rankings come out today. Sam- pras lost in the third round at Lipton to Wayne Ferreira. Critics contend that Rios' ranking is tainted because he hasn't won a Grand Slam. Agassi said Rios deserves No. 1 .— for now. "How everybody does in the Grand Slams is going to determine ultimately the end-of-the-year ranking," Agassi said. "He'll have to win a slam this year to be No. 1 in the players' eyes." Rios, the runner-up at the Australian Open in January, is only the second player to reach No. 1 without having won a major tournament. The other was Ivan Lendl in 1983, who went on to win eight Grand Slams, Rios acknowledged that his edge over Sampras and other top players is slim and tenuous. "Maybe at this moment I'm playing better than anyone," he said. "But I don't feel like I'm really good. Everyone has a chance to beat me." The 5-foot-9 left-hander gave Agassi no chance, though, in the first meeting between the two. Rios controlled the rallies, and his deceptive serve neutralized Agassi, who has perhaps the best return in the history of the game. "He played better than I expected," Agassi said. "His serve was better than I was expecting." Several charter planes made the nine-hour flight from Chile bringing fans for the final, and they began chanting and singing an hour before the match. The Davis Cup-type atmosphere inspired Rios, who took a quick 3-0 lead. SPORTS DIGEST HAINES CITY, Fla. — Lee Smith, baseball's career saves leader, still hopes to catch on with another team. "Right now, I know it's tough with teams cutting back guys, not picking up guys," said Smith, who on Friday refused Kansas City's request that he go to the minors. "I thought I'd see if I could get with another ballclub before I made my decision on the Triple-A thing. I ain't weighing too close toward it, I know." Smith, who saved 478 games for eight teams in 18 years, was asked by Royals manager Tony Muser to accept an assignment to Triple-A Omaha. Kansas City wants to protect relievers Jim Pittsley and Brian Bevley, who are out of options. BRADENTON, Fla. — The St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets traded pitchers Sunday, with right-hander starter Juan Acevedo going to St. Louis for left-hander Rigo Beltran. Acevedo, 27, was 3-1 with a 3.59 BRA in two starts and 23 relief appearances last season, striking out 33 in 47 2-3 innings. He is 7-7 with a 5.24 ERA in 42 career appearances with Colorado (1995) and the Mets. Acevedo was 1-0 with 13 strikeouts in 15 innings, . during five spring appearances with the Mets. Beltran, 28, pitched in 35 games with St. Louis in 1997, going 1-2 with a 3.48 ERA. Basketball NEW YORK — Another night of close Finishes helped CBS keep its NCAA tournament ratings the highest in four years. The Stanford-Kentucky overtime thriller Saturday got a 10.5 rating-22 share, 3 percent higher than the 10.2-22 last year for North Carolina-Arizona. It was the highest-rat-, ed first semifinal since the Oklahoma State-UCLA „ game in 1995. In the second game, Utah's upset of North Carolina got a 11.9-21, 2 percent higher than Kentucky-Minnesota last year. In a period of declining network ratings, CBS' numbers for the tournament have been positive. Through Saturday, CBS is averaging a 6.6-14, up 1 percent from last year (6.5-14) and the highest since the 7.0-16 •• from 1994. Each ratings point represents 980,000 homes. The share is the percentage of televisions', in actual use at the time. Boxing ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Don Turner, the train-' er for Evander Holyfield, was not impressed. He watched Lennox Lewis escape early trouble to knock down Shannon Briggs three times before stopping him at 1:45 of the fifth round Saturday night. When asked how Lewis would fare against Holyfield, Turner said: "He gets knocked out, probably. Yeah, he's easier than I thought." Lewis, the WBC heavyweight champion, has said he needs to fight Holyfield, the WBA-IBF champion, to support his claim of being the premier heavyweight. Running LOS ANGELES — Zebedayo Bayo of Tanzania won the Los Angeles Marathon Sunday in 2 hours, 11 minutes, 21 seconds, while Lornah Kiplagat of Kenya repeated as women's champion. The 21- year-old Bayo outdueled Jonathan Ndambuki of Kenya, who appeared to have the race won until the final uphill climb. Ndamubki finished four seconds back at 2:11:25 and was followed by two more Kenyans: Simon Lopuyet (2:11:41) and Philip Chirchir (2:11:52). Fifth was Mexico's Alejandro Cruz in 2:12:27. Kiplagat, 23, was declared the LA Marathon winner in 1997 when the women's first- place finisher was disqualified for taking a shortcut through a gasoline station. Kiplagat's time of 2:33:50 last year was a personal best. Sunday, she was timed in 2:34:03. General BERLIN — East German athletes were ordered to have abortions because, it was feared, their use '' of anabolic steroids could have led to mutant offspring, a report in Der Spiegel claims Monday. The magazine says police in Berlin and the eastern state of Thuringia are using evidence from the Stasi secret police's files to investigate former sports officials, doctors and trainers. Four former East German trainers and two sports doctors are currently on trial in Berlin for their alleged part in the systematic doping of young swimmers. The de- ' fendants, the first to be tried after an investigation into the use of steroids by state swimmers, are accused of causing actual bodily harm between 1974 and 1989 to 19 female swimmers while they were still children or adolescents. The latest allegations are based on reports given to the Stasi by Manfred Hoppner, the former head of East Germany's sport medicine service. He recommended that athletes who became pregnant while on the steroids should be advised "to terminate their pregnancy." BOSTON — A ring to fight in, a title match and a: one-punch knockout. What more could Mike Tyson want? A boxing ring and renewed respect in his . profession, but he'll have to wait for both. On Sunday, the youngest heavyweight champion ever settled for a wrestling ring, shilling for a show as "special enforcer" for the World Wrestling Federation title bout between Shawn Michaels and challenger Stone Cold Steve Austin. Tyson stood outside the ring, supposedly to help the referee, if necessary. But his "Degeneration X" T-shirt — a reference to Michaels' camp — betrayed his sympa- J thies. Or so it seemed. Just as he had turned against promoter Don King and managers Rory Holloway and John Home by suing them this month, so did he turn the tables on Michaels. With the official referee lying outside the ring after being slammed against a turnbuckle, Austin pinned Michaels. Tyson then leaped into the ring and counted Michaels out. When Michaels got up and realized what had happened, he jawed with Tyson. The boxer floored the wrestler with a quick right to the jaw then raised arms with Austin, who held • his newly won WWF championship belt aloft.
