News Brooke Shields and tennis star Andre Agassi at the 1997 Golden Globe Awards

Brooke Shields unwittingly revealed shocking details about her divorce from Andre Agassi on the Today show.

Henman homing in on another final

Tim Henman clinched a place in the quarter-finals of the European Community Championship in Antwerp last night as he swept aside the challenge of Sweden's Mikael Tillstrom.

Prisoners, politicians and players do it

The art of writing love letters may not be dead, but it might be in need of a spin-doctor. Free association brings the words "stalker" and "sleaze" to mind. It also invokes such high-profile correspondents as MP Jerry Hayes (who favoured House of Commons notepaper for his missives to the doe-eyed boy researcher Paul Stone) and Darius Guppy, the high- class convict who carried on a besotted daily correspondence with his wife, Patricia, while banged up for fraud.

Sarah Thomas is leaving school to model. Good move?

In her autumn half-term, 16-year-old Sarah Thomas earned pounds 6,500 a day on the New York catwalks. Her intention was merely to dabble in modelling as a way of earning money in the school holidays. Some dabbling. Thomas quickly found herself being offered the new Cover Girl cosmetics campaign, a post previously filled by the Danish/Peruvian supermodel, Helena Christensen. Despite a rumoured six-figure sum, the girl from Norwich turned it down, determined that nothing should interfere with her school work.

WHY ARE THEY FAMOUS? NO 10: BROOKE SHIELDS

Main Claim: Unearthly infantile beauty with a soft porn patina. Brooke Shields was the ultimate symbol of American hypocrisy - soft porn starlet and born again virgin, exploited and guarded by her puritanical Rottweiler of a mother. Baby Brooke modelled in ads. Pre-pubescent Brooke was photographed in a bath in nothing on but her make-up. She has been amazingly famous for amazingly little ever since.

Henman breaks through in US

Tim Henman yesterday became the first British player in nine years to reach the third round of the US Open men's singles when he beat the American Doug Flach in straight sets.

Tennis: Agassi finds a willing partner

Andre Agassi's short-notice unexpected appearance in the men's doubles tournament on Friday night resulted in a three-set first-round victory over Alejandro Hernandez and Oscar Ortiz, of Mexico.

OLYMPIC GAMES

Henman gets a grip on reality

Sixty years of hurt, the Challenge Cup's still gleaming, three stripes on his shirt, but Tim Henman insists that dreaming is not for him. Henman, the last surviving British competitor in the men's singles at Wimbledon after completing his third-round win over his compatriot Luke Milligan yesterday, is being asked to take over from the England football team and bring tennis home for the first time since the last of Fred Perry's three championship wins in 1936.
