rest of the way and let the tiebreakers decide matters. In those, Arthurs proved dominant and he ended the affair with a 134 mph ace up the middle.
Despite the urging and cries of Guga" from Kuerten's fans, the bearded Brazilian failed to impress his game on Arthurs, who first began winning the battle from the baseline, then took charge of the match at the net.
Time and again, Arthurs, best known as a doubles player, would chip Kuerten's second serve and charge the net, ready to knock off a feeble attempt at a passing shot. On his own service games, Arthurs would keep Kuerten on the defensive with his blistering serves.
Arthurs reached double match point on Kuerten's serve in the ninth game of the fourth set. Kuerten served an ace to save the first one. He thought he had his second straight ace on the next serve, but it was called wide.
It made no difference. Kuerten won the next three points and held for 5-5. Two games later, they moved into a second straight tiebreaker, which Arthurs dominated, racing out to 6-0 lead.
Kuerten won the next poult, but the hole he was in was much too deep. Arthurs then pounded his final ace to complete the upset.
f old that Kuerten w as one of the favorites to w in this tournament, Arthurs replied. "Not any more."
Kuerten became only the second No. 2 seed to lose in the first round of the U.S. Open since 1956, when the present system of seedings started. The only other time it happened was in 1994 when second-seeded Goran Ivanisevic was ousted in his opener. Ivanisevic lost another first-round match on Tuesday.
Kuerten was the second seeded player to tumble from the tournament on the second day. Earlier, No. 16 Julie Halard-Decugis fell to Minam Oremans 6-3,6-4.
Lindsay Davenport, the 1998 women's champion, romped past Gala Leon Garcia of Spain 6-0,6-1 in 44 minutes.
In the fourth game of the second set, Leon Garcia, who prefers to play on clay rather than the hardcourts of the National Tennis Center, w hipped a winning forehand into the comer and raised her amis in triumph. Two points later, she had won her first — and only game, breaking Davenport at 15.

Steelers name Graham starting quarterback
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Kent Graham signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers mostly because they promised a chance to start. Even he didn't guess it would be so soon.
Graham was pleasantly surprised and, in his words, Kordell Stewart was “stunned” when coach Bill Cowher unexpectedly chose Graham to start at quarterback Sunday against Baltimore.
Three days before, Cowher said the two would split time, perhaps even in the same game. Cowher now seems to be backing off that statement after assuring Graham that, according to the quarterback, “He won't have a quick hook.”
Try telling that to Stewart.
“I won’t say I was shook up, but
was kind of stunned a little bit,” Stewart said. “At the same time, I understood. You can't do anything but accept it.”
Only 18 months after signing a $27 million contract extension, Stewart faces an uncertain future with a team that felt it couldn’t wait any longer for him to play his way out of a two-year slump.
Still, Stewart said, “My career doesn't stop right here. I still have more time to come and I have to keep myself in shape so, whether the opportunity comes this year or next year or the year after that, I'm prepared.”
Despite not starting the final five games last season, Stewart began the preseason with the quarterback's job to lose.

“You never know,'” he said.
In the tradition of the Comets’ previous championship parades and two by the Rockets before, the victors rode atop fire trucks preceded by marching bands, floats and convertibles carrying local dignitaries.
F ans stacked three and four deep along Smith Street to greet the players and coach Van Chancellor, who said this title was the sweetest yet.
“One of the great joys of winning championships is the big parade we get in Houston,” Chancellor said. “There's a lot of kid in me getting to do this parade today”
Parade-goer James Russell brought his three young sons to see the spectacle firsthand.
“I’m more excited now than I was for the first three.” Russell said.
Fans also cheered the area’s other recent sports heroes, the national champion Bellaire Little League All-Stars, who fell one game short of a world title last weekend in a 3-2 loss to Maracaibo, Venezuela.
“I've had a great time,” catcher
Terrence McConn said. “Everyone's talking about it.”
The 12-year-olds will get their own parade Wednesday evening in downtown Bellaire, a residential town surrounded by southwest Houston.
