For that to happen, the titans will need a relatively healthy Steve McNair at quarterback. McNair was one of the few players thankful for the cold conditions: He said he didn't need to ice his injured toe because it already was frozen from standing on a podium in the interview refrigerator, er, tent. About two hours after the Titans' news conference, the Rams met with reporters in a large ballroom within their suburban hotel, prompting several players to show up in short- sleeved T-shirts. All-Pro tackle Orlando Pace winced when told of the Titans' arrangements. '•• Do you feel sorry for them? "No," he said. "I'm just happy we're in this cozy situation."

Capriati game back from 2-4 in the second set, winning eight straight points to tie at 4-4. With Davenport serving for the match at 5-4, she broke for her third time of the set. Early in the tiebreaker, she hit some resounding winners, including her first ace of the match. At 4-4, in a long rally punctuated by the boom of heavy shots 'and grunts of effort, she sent a backhand into the net. Then she gave Davenport match point with a serve return just wide. Davenport carefully chose the balls she wanted, put Capriati on the defensive with a good serve, and took the one-hour, 22- minute match when Capriati hit a forehand into the net after a short rally.
