who beat him in straight sets in the third round of the Australian Open in January.
Sampras took revenge with a 7-6, 6-4, 6-4 victory over Philippoussis who hit 28 aces in the one hour and 45 minutes of the match. His huge serve — clocked at over 200 kph — could not compensate for the superior quality of the top seed’s grass-court game.
Fourth seed Goran Ivanisevic, another ace specialist and runner-up here in 1992 and 1994, continued on his course toward a meeting with Sampras in the semifinals by beating French qualifier Pierre Bouteyre 7-5, 6-4, 6-4. Sampras was never even

At 5-4 an ace took him to match-point and he finished off with a winning backhand volley.
Philippoussis’s hard hitting drew gasps from the crowd when one smash sent the ball dangerously close to the VIPs in the front row of the royal box.
But the Australian, ranked 33rd in the world, conceded that brute strength was not enough.
“I would prefer to serve no aces and win the match than serve 500 and lose it,” said Philippoussi.Trot lines a prime way to hook crappie
Have you ever heard of a trout line? I have, many times, and I’m sure you have too. First off, as far as I know, there is no such thing. The proper word is “trot” line.
A trot line is a single line (nm horizontally) with many stagings (small drop Warren lines with hooks) that are primarily used to catch catfish. Trot lines are a great way to catch fish for many reasons.
Fust off, trot lines have lots of hooks baited, giving you greater odds of getting bites. Secondly, a line which is properly secured on each end keeps the bait in a specific area without moving.
The numerous hooks allow anglers to use a variety of bait.
After doing a little research I found one of the fishermen named A. L. Byrd, and asked him to explain his system.
Byrd uses a trot line made by “EZ Trot” due to the simplicity and safety in setting and removing the line. “Any trot line will work but most of the time I run lines by myself and regular lines are just too hard to work with. The EZ Trot is the safest and easiest to use especially for the guy who trotlines by himself.
“I really discovered catching crappie by accident. Years ago I’d go for catfish and alternate baits on my lines. I’d use large minnows and shrimp. Sometimes I couldn’t get large minnows and would use small and medium-sized ones. That’s when I started catching crappie. Occasionally I’d catch a crappie on every staging that had small minnow. This was especially the case in the summer when the crappie moved to deeper water.”
Byrd told me that he still catches some catfish on his lines but crappie make up most of his catch.
The best places for these minnow baited trot lines are running parallel to submerged grass lines, river channels and deep tree lines.
Summertime is the best time of year to catch crappie using this technique. Don’t be surprised to catch some good sized bass on these lines.
Byrd’s largest bass to date was a 10-pound lunker that he caught while crappie fishing. For more information on the EZ Trot Line call (713) 923-3977.

DALLAS (AP) — The shocking arrest of a policeman accused of trying to hire a hitman to kill Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin is the latest revelation in a drug case that began with a loud motel party and has become a life and death drama.
Officer Johnnie Hernandez, 28, was charged with solicitation of capital murder Thursday, a day after he paid “several thousand dollars” as a partial payment to an undercover agent posing as a hitman, police chief Ben Click said.
The developments involving the five-year Dallas police veteran, who has been subpoenaed as a witness in Irvin’s drug trial, may derail the court proceedings despite the judge’s insistence it should not be a factor.
The trial was interrupted in the third day of jury selection by the report of Hernandez’s arrest. Prosecutors and defense attorneys were

Marbury joins ‘Da Kid* as latest NBA prodigy
By The Associated Press
to stay avail with Daloy
CROMWELL, Com. (AP) - Greg Norman staged a late charge and shot a 6-under-par 64 to match newcomer Joe Datey for a share of the first-round lead in : the Canon Greater Hartford Open.
Norman, the defending champion, found himself three strokes behind Daley with four holes left.
He surged with three birdies to join Daley on top of the leaderboerd.
The co-leaders finished two strokes ahead of Bob Glider. A pack of goiters opened with 67s.
It wasn’t supposed to happen this way, but the principal player involved — Stephon Marbury of Georgia Tech —is ecstatic. Ecstatic over the fact he will join his friend Kevin Garnett, known as “Da Kid,” up in Minnesota to play for the Tim-berwolves.
Last year, Garnett went right out of Farragut High School in Chicago to the Timberwolves. With a surprising level of maturity for an 18-year-old, Garnett played and grew as an NBA player throughout his rookie year and was making an impact at the end of the season.
While Garnett was toiling for millions, Marbury conunued the “Brooklyn Pipeline,” established by coach Bobby Cremins at Georgia Tech. He was one of the most sought-after high schoolrccruits in
the nation playing at Lincoln High. Guards like Mark Price, Kenny Anderson and Travis Best all played with Cremins, and for one season, so did Marbury.
He was great in his only year with the Yellow Jackets, averaging 18.9 points per game. He helped Georgia Tech advance to the Sweet 16, eventually losing to Cincinnati. Marbury had 4.5 assists per game and showed surprising shot discipline,making 45.7 percent of his shots and 37
percent from three-pointrange.
Milwaukee did not surprise a lot of people by drafting him fourth. After Allen Iverson, Marcus Camby and Shame! Abdur-Rahim were gone, the Bucks went after the best playeravailable and it was Marbury. Few people blinked when the Timberwolves selected Ray Allen. But heads turned when the deal was announced and Marbury, who was happy just to be drafted, got even happier.
“Now I’m playing where I really, really wanted to play,” said Marbury after hearing the trade and switching hats with Allen.
“Not only did my dream come true but I’m where I wanted to be because I’m playing with Kevin Garnett. I’m just looking forward to being there forever. Milwaukee was a great situation too. but I’m just going to be at Minnesota with Kevin Garnett.”

to continue their search for 12 panelists today.
Click said he could not comment on a possible motive because of a gag order issued by state District Judge Manny Alvarez, who is presiding over Irvin’s trial. But broadcast reports Thursday night suggested ties between Irvin, Hernandez and his live-in girlfriend, Rochelle Smith.
“The officer had wanted the hit to occur very soon,” Click said of the deal made in a shopping center parking lot between Hernandez and an agent from the Drug Enforcement Administration.
