It was the first time in more than a decade of professional tennis that the 32-year-old left-hander failed to take the court. "It's never happened that I never played. Maybe that's it," said Connors, who was seeded No. 2. "I played too many times hurt in the past and it's finally caught up with me." Connors, who earned $25,000 for second place, warmed up for about 15 minutes before electing to withdraw. McEnroe took home $50,000. "I guess I got a little bit of an Easter prize," said McEnroe after being handed the winner's check. He said it was the first time he's ever won a title by default. Trio wants '92 Games in Denver DENVER (AP) — Three Olympic enthusiasts say they will ask Mayor Federico Pena on Tuesday to endorse an llth-hour request to make Denver the host of the 1992 Winter Games. The idea's proponents concede there would be problems recapturing the confidence of the International Olympic Committee, The Denver Post said in a copyright story Sunday. Denver was picked as the site for the 1976 Winter Games but forfeited the bid when Coloradans voted, in November 1972, to withhold funding. If Pena signs the proposal, it must be presented to the United States Olympic Committee by Wednesday. USOC Secretary General George D. Miller said he must hear from the mayors of interested cities no later than Wednesday, including cities that might also be interested in hosting the 1992 Summer Games. Formal bids must be made by June 15. Two Penn State players killed NEWPORT, Pa.

Gene Lyons, 21, of Deptford, N.J., and Billy Chris James, 18, of McKeesport, Pa, were pronounced dead at the scene of the Friday afternoon crash, police said. Penn State spokeswoman Mary Jo Haverbeck said Lyons was a junior reserve defensive end. Head football Coach Joe Paterno said Lyons came to the team as a walk-on and played last season on a scholarship. "He was a good solid student and very well-liked. He was an extremely hard-working kid," Paterno said. James, a freshman walk-on player last season who came to the team from Serra High School, didn't join the Nittany Lions squad for spring drills, Paterno said. Ms. Haverbeck said she didn't know what position he played.
