Sampras outlasts Kuerten
TN defeat Punjab by 7 wickets
HAMILTON (New Zealand) April 3 (Reuters) Australia polished off New Zealand with a six-wicket win on the fourth day of third and final Test in Hamilton today to complete a clean sweep.
Justin Langer ended unbeaten on 122 off 122 balls to see the tourists through to 212 for four after bowling New Zealand out for 229 in their second innings on Sunday.
The victory was Australias 10th in a row, one short of the world record of 11 Tests held by the West Indies, who will be their next opponents when they tour Australia later this year.
Australian captain Steve Waugh said he was looking forward to a break from Test cricket before taking on the West Indies in November.
I think were on the verge of something special. I believe this is only the beginning we can play better than that ... We are going to be fired up and youre going to see us play some exciting cricket. Were going to be playing to win.
New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming said losing the series three-nil was a disappointment, especially given the chances they had had.
We had opportunities throughout the Test match which is a positive sign, but (we were) not good enough to take them, he said.
When you play a very good side, a side that is better than you, you have to learn things you have to learn things or you take nothing from the series.
Starting the fourth day needing just 73 runs to win, Langer and Steve Waugh began the morning in the same aggressive fashion as they had ended the previous afternoon, taking 10 runs off the first over from Chris Cairns.
Langer went on to reach his seventh Test century, hitting his 19th boundary to give Australia the victory.
Waugh made is before retiring hurt after being struck on the wrist by a delivery from Daryl Tuffey and said he would have an X-ray later on Monday, though the injury did not appear serious.
Damien Martyn lasted just 10 minutes before given out lbw for four with the score at 190, but by then the tourists were all but home.
After sending New Zealand in to bat on the first morning, Australia bowled the home team out for 232 and had lost one early wicket in reply.
The New Zealand pace bowlers reduced Australia to 39 for five early on day two, but a magnificent partnership between Damien Martyn and Adam Gilchrist rescued Australia and gave them a 20-run lead after the first innings.
New Zealand lost regular wickets in the second innings, with Chris Cairns top scoring on 71.
Gilchrist took 10 dismissals in the game, one short of the world record, and was named Man of the Match for his contribution with both gloves and bat.

KINGSTON, (Jamaica), April 3 (Reuters) Wavell Hinds hit a maiden one-day international century at Sabina Park yesterday as the West Indies beat Zimbabwe for the second time in two days in a triangular tournament.
Hinds set up the 41-run win by hitting 116 not out and putting on an unbroken partnership of 125 with fellow Jamaican Chris Gayle in 14.3 overs as the home side amassed 280 for three after opting to bat.
Zimbabwe were never in the hunt after that. At 80 for three and needing eight an over from their final 25 overs, the only defiance came from Stuart Carlisle with 57 and captain Andy Flower with 52 as the visitors ended on 239 for eight in their 50 overs.
West Indies, without former captain Brian Lara who is taking a break from the sport and Shivnarine Chanderpaul who is ill, badly need new heroes and the 23-year-old Hinds and 21-year-old Gayle obliged.
Hindss innings included 12 fours and a six, while his partner, also a left-hander, struck his 58 off 45 balls. Captain Jimmy Adams contributed 41 off 54 balls before he was run out.
Guy Whittal was the bowler to suffer, his six overs of medium pace costing 53. When Zimbabwe batted, pace bowler Reon king excelled with three for 27.
West Indies, who also beat Zimbabwe 2-0 in their recently completed Test series, thrashed Zimbabwe by 87 runs in the first match of the tournament on Saturday.
Pakistan, the third team taking part, play their first match against Zimbabwe on Wednesday in Antigua. Each side plays four first-phase matches before a best-of-three final.

HAMILTON, April 3 (AFP) Victorious Australian skipper Steve Waugh today acclaimed Justin Langer as the best batsman in the world on his current form.
The West Australian left-hander ended his supreme season in the best way with an unbeaten 122 off 122 balls in Australias six-wicket triumph to sweep the series over New Zealand and win their 10th consecutive Test match.
He was down and out going into the Hobart Test (against Pakistan last November) and hes come away with four centuries, Waugh said.
At the moment he is the best batsman in the world.
His seventh Test century featured 19 boundaries and capped a gutsy season from the No 3 batsman.
Since his heroic revival against Wasim Akrams Pakistan in Hobart, when he was probably batting for his Test future and helped Australia to come from behind to defy history and win, Langer has rattled up runs at an astonishing rate.
The winning runs today pushed him to 1,003 runs from Australias 13-match Test season, spiced by the rousing 127 in Australias comeback win over Pakistan in Hobart, 144 in the following third Perth Test and a fluent 223 against India in the third Sydney Test.
MIAMI, April 3 (AFP) Pete Sampras survived a gallant effort by Gustavo Kuerten, finally subduing the Brazilian on his seventh match point to win the $ 5.725 million Ericsson Open, his first title of the year.
Sampras, a 12-time Grand Slam champion, needed more than three hours to come up with a 6-1, 6-7 (2/7), 7-6 (7/5), 7-6 (10/8) victory over the sixth-seeded claycourt expert yesterday, and a little luck at the end didnt hurt either.
I hadnt played a match that tough in many, many months, said Sampras, who has battled niggling injuries since losing to Andre Agassi in the Australian Open. It was tougher than the semifinal with Andre in Melbourne. Physically it was more demanding.
Sampras, the second seed in the second of the years elite Tennis Masters Series events, appeared headed to a quick victory when he won the first set 6-1 in 28 minutes and went up a break in the second set.
But Kuerten got the break back and won the second in a tie-breaker, and barely lost the third after each player held serve throughout the final two sets.
Sampras had to save two set points in the 12th game of the fourth set to get to the tie-breaker.
He rolled to a 6-2 lead, but lost all four match points, three with forehand errors and one with a backhand wide.
Sampras went up 7-6 on the next point, although Kuerten thought the Americans backhand was long and drew a warning when he hit a ball into the stands in disgust.
I was ready for a fifth set, Kuerten said. On one match point, 7-6, something like this. I had a very bad call on his backhand passing shot. The ball went long and they didnt call. I am sure if it had been in Brazil we would be playing a fifth set right now.
But Sampras couldnt take advantage of Kuertens discomfiture, doublefaulting to let the Brazilian level again at 7-7.
Sampras wasted one more match point with a backhand long, then he nailed a volley to give himself another at 9/8 in the tie-breaker.
Kuertens forehand clipped the tape and went just long to give Sampras his 61st career victory and the $ 410.000 first prize.
It was really tough and could have gone either way, Sampras said. No doubt he is not any more just a one surface player. He can play will everywhere. I got a little lucky. Im encouraged. To win a tournament of this magnitude, with everyone playing, its Grand Slam feeling.
advantage India this time: Leander
New Delhi, April 3 Leander Paes arrived in Delhi at 4 am on Sunday, and by 9 am, he was at the National Sports Club of India (NSCI) courts with other members of the Indian Davis Cup squad for a three-hour workout, to show that his commitment to Davis Cup play is total.
Leander arrived from Orlando in the USA after two and half days of flying with a couple of stopovers in between to join the rest of the Indian squad, who have been sweating it out, under the watchful eyes of non-playing captain Ramesh Krishnan, in preparation of the Asian Zone Group I second round tie against South Korea, to be played at the grass court of the R.K.Khanna Stadium from April 7 to 9.
Leander predicted that the Koreans would be dangerous customers as they are very fit, and fight right till the end, though they dont play a lot many matches in the international circuit. He said he was looking forward to the tie with a lot of expectation, as he will be entering the 11th year of his remarkable Davis Cup career after he made his debut against Japan at Chandigarh. I am trying to do everything to win my two singles matches, but the rest will depend on the other players, Leander remarked.
He said there was excellent team spirit, and Fazaluddin and Srinath were doing very well. He felt India should exploit the home court advantage to the maximum to beat the Koreans, who had given India a 3-2 whipping when the two met the last time, at Chejus Island in South Korea. The Koreans are fielding the same team, for this tie too, but Leander feels that this time around, its advantage India. He pointed out that India must play to the best of our abilities to tame the Koreans. Leander said so many years of Davis Cup play had still not whetted his appetite for the game as the countrys flag is still on my chest and hopes to bring out his best form against the Koreans though he has had a lean run in the international circuit lately.
Leander said 1998 had been a great year for me, both in singles and doubles, and in 1999, it was a fantastic year for my doubles, as myself and Mahesh (Bhupathi) had notched up some remarkable victories.But now that I am refocusing on my singles, it is taking time for me to get adjusted to my singles play.
But he has no regrets at some of his recent defeats in singles as,as far as I am concerned, I am on the right track. Leander said since he has been playing with Bhupathi in the doubles circuit during the last four years, his singles suffered. And now his doubles game too has suffered in the absence of Bhupathi as it takes time to adjust to a new partner. Leander has been constantly changing partners, to hit the right note, but without much success. However, he was confident that in a couple of months time, things will be sorted out, and he would get a definite picture where his career is headed for.Leander said he feels a lot more stronger physically, having played a lot of singles matches. He said Davis Cup play injected fresh energy to his system as it is a great honour to play for the country. He was grateful that there was excellent team-spirit in the squad, and his own efforts, he hopes, act as a motivating tonic to the younger members in the team.That is the reason I opted to train just a couple of hours after landing in Delhi, after a longish flight,.
He was also happy with
Chandigarh boy Sunil Kumars replacement in the
squad, Vishal Uppal of Delhi. He is a good team
man, and the joker in the team, as he keeps everyone
entertained. Leander said since none of us
figure in the first 100 in the world, our strength is our
unity and our united effort, I am sure, will bring us the
just rewards. Regarding Sunil Kumars omission
from the squad, Leander observed that its
nice to have selected Sunil for the ITF Futures event, as
it will give him tremendous exposure. But Leander
admitted that by practising with the Indian squad during
the Asian Zone Group I first round tie against Lebanon at
Lucknow, Sunil gained a lot of valuable experience.
Leander said among the Koreans, Asian Games champion Yoon
Yong-Il is a very talented player, who is very doughty.
The Koreans are all right-handers, and non-playing
captain Ramesh Krishnan said India have no soft options,
but to play to their optimum potential as when it comes
to the crunch, home conditions and grass courts would
work in our favour only upto a point. Ramesh said the
Delhi heat should not pose much of a problem for the
Koreans as they are very good at getting adapted to a new
situation. Ramesh said with the arrival of Leander,
we have entered the final stretch of the practice
session, and it was a bonus for the other boys that they
got few more days of practice.
REYKJAVIK, April 3 (PTI) Grandmaster Vishwanathan Anand of India was unable to keep his cool and lost a nerve-wracking final to Garry Kasparov of Russia in the Iceland Rapid Chess Championship which concluded here today.
The much-awaited title-clash between the worlds two best players had all the excitement and drama with Anand and Kasparov matching each other move for move.

Earlier, Anand defeated Migeir Petursson of Iceland 1.5-0.5 and Kasparov beat Alexander Wojtkeiwicz by an identical margin in the two-game semi-finals to set the stage for the summit-clash.
Anand opted for the
English opening in the first game of the final and

middle game. He then ripped open the queen side and
succeeded in winning a pawn.

CHENNAI, April 3 (UNI) Opener Sadagopan Ramesh (77 not out) and skipper S. Sharath (53 not out) guided former champions Tamil Nadu into the semifinals of the Ranji Trophy cricket championship with an impressive seven-wicket win against Punjab in the quarter finals here on the fifth and the final day at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium here today.
Ramesh (264 mnts, 9-fours) and Sharath (166 mts, 5-fours) who came together after Tamil Nadu, resuming their pursuit of win at the overnight score of 30 for no loss, chasing an easy victory target of 164, put on an unbeaten 127 run stand in 35 overs after Punjabs star off spinner Harbhajan Singh and medium pacer Sandeep Sharma got rid of overnight batsmen Hemang K. Badani for 11 in 55 minutes and J.R. Madanagopal for a duck.
Tamil Nadu were coasting to an easy win when at 84 play had to be stopped as a swarm of bees disturbed from their hive held up play for 20 minutes.

Punjab met with some success when play began on the fifth and final day. In the seventh over of the day, off the third ball, left hander Hemang K. Badani playing half cock edged off spinner Harbhajan Singh to be caught behind for 11 in 55 minutes with two fours.

Twenty minutes of play before lunch was lost due to the incident which was the third such during a cricket match in the country.
