.More Sports THE DAILY GLOBE, Ironwood, Ml —Wednesday, Sept. 9,1998 Page 10 Hingis dominates Seles NEW YORK <AP) — Whatever shot Monica Seles hit, Martina Hingis replied deeper, harder and with a sharper angle. And when Hingis completed her 72-minute tennis lesson Tuesday night in the wind-swept Arthur Ashe Stadium, the top seed had a 6-4, 6-4 victory over No, 6 Monica Seles and a spot in the semifinals of the U.S. Open. "I just played very well, very concentrated," Hingis admitted. "I served very well and didn't make many mistakes." Hingis next will play her doubles partner, No. 3 Jana Novot- na, who advanced with a 6-2, 6-3 victory over No. 11 Patty Schnyder. The other semifinal pairing was to be completed today when No, 2 Lindsay Davenport played No. 13 Amanda Coetzer" and No. 4 Arantxa Sanchez Vicario faced No. 5 Venus Williams. On the men's side, Andre Agassi couldn't keep pace with ninth-seeded Karol Kucera, falling to the Slovak 6-3, 6-3, 6-7 (57), 1-6, 6-3 in a rain-delayed match that started Monday- Three Swedes reached the men's quarterfinals to give America's premier tennis tournament a bluc-and-yellow tinge., No. 12 Jonas Bjorkman defeated Dutchman Jan Siemerink 6-4, 2-6, 6-2, G-2; Thomas Johansson upset No. 11 Yevgeny Kafelnikov of Russia 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, 0 7-6 (9-7), and Magnus Larsson eliminated Germany's Oliver Gross 6-4, 7-5, 5-7, 6-2. In the other fourth-round matches, defending champion Patrick Rafter defeated No. 14 Goran Ivanisevic 6-3, 6-4, 4-6, 6-1; unseeded Mark Philippous- sis upset No. 13 Tim Henman 7-5, 0-6, 6-4, 6-1 and No. 10 Carlos Moya downed No. 7 Alex Cor- retja 7-6 i7-4), 7-5, 6-3. Seles was extremely sharp, especially considering the strong winds that played havoc with the ball. But. Hingis was absolutely brilliant, answering nearly every Seles shot with a better one. "I was a little worried going into the match because I wasn't playing my best and I lost two times to Monica before this." Hingis said. "I was playing well tonight, my serve was very good and I didn't make any mistakes. I was on a good wave." Seles defeated Hingis in their two previous matches this year, including the French Open semifinals. But on Tuesday night, Hingis lost just seven points on her serve in the first set. Both players had more winners than errors. But Hingis seemed to step up her game and win all of the key points, including a net cord that closed out the final break in the seventh game of the second set. After that, the world's top- ranked player served two love games to cement her semifinal date with Novotna, the Wimbledon champion. Hingis, who won three of the four Grand Slam tournaments in 1997, is seeking her second of this year. She won the Australian Open in January. Novotna made short work of Schnyder, the 19-year-old Swiss Fed Cup teammate of Hingis who knocked Steffi Graf out of the tournament in the previous round. "I was pleased when I heard the news that she beat Steffi," No- votna said. "There's no question about jt- I mean playing Steffi today in this (wind) condition, it would be really difficult because she hits really hard and she's very overpowering. It would be much harder to create my game." Playing Novotna proved more difficult for Schnyder, especially because of the wind. Martina Hingis celebrates her win over Monica Setes Tuesday night. Jays, Rangers gain ground Hurley captures first M-W net win Tuesday By The Associated Press While most of baseball was focused on Mark McGwire, the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays were gaining ground in their postseason races. 'To come back like that in the ninth is extra special," Rangers manager Johnny Gates said. "We needed it again and we came through again." Toronto, which had the day off, • , _.__._ ^ r And, in the all-but-forgotten AL pulled within 4Vz games of Bos- East race, the Yankees clinched a tie for the division title. ton in the wild-card race when the Red Sox lost to the Yankees Ivan Rodriguez's two-run single 3-2 at Fenway Park, with one out in the ninth led Texas over the Kansas City Royals 7-6 Tuesday night, pulling the Rangers within two games of AL West- leadi n g An aheim. New York, which battered the AL for five months before an 8-11 slump, needs just one more win or a Boston loss to mathematically ensure the title. A more experienced Hurley girls tennis team registered its first victory of the Michigan-Wisconsin Conference season, as they handed Wakefield a third straight loss, 7-0, Tuesday. The win is Hurley's first after losses to Lakeland and Ashland. Hurley swept the singles, but not after the young Cardinals gave them a battle at the third and fourth spots.

Brewers' bullpen gives game away PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jose Guillen blooped a two-run, two- out single into right field in the eighth inning as the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied from seven runs down to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 8-7 Tuesday. Jeremy Burnitz and Marquis Grissom homered as the Brewers built a 7-0 lead, only to watch their bullpen surrender four runs in the seventh and two in the eighth. Eric Plunk (0-2) allowed Adrian Brown's single and walked Jason Kendall before Guillen fought off a fastball on his opposite-field • single to right. Brad Woodall left leading 7-2 after six innings, but Emil Brown's three-run double keyed the four-run seventh against relievers Bronswell Patrick and Chad Fox. Jason Kendall had a two-run double in the fifth off Woodall. Mike Williams (4-2) pitched a scoreless eighth for the victory.
