Becker fails to pass Muster

Thomas Muster battled back from two sets down and saved two match points to stay undefeated on clay this year and beat Boris Becker, 4-6, 5-7, 6-1, 7-6, 6-0 yesterday in the Monte Carlo Open final.

Muster collapses on court

The Austrian Thomas Muster collapsed on court after defeating Italy's Andrea Gaudenzi 6-3 7-6 in the Monte Carlo Open semi-finals yesterday. Muster, who frequently staggered with exhaustion in the heat during the final tie-break, lay on his back for some time, but was finally able to make his way unaided to the side of the court. He had first called for medical attention at 1-1 in the second set of the match. Even after treatment the Austrian was clearly in distress. But he then managed to move 5-3 ahead before the 14th seed Gaudenzi pulled back and looked set to take the match into a third set as he led 5-2 in the tie-break. But Muster took the next five points for victory, before going to hospital for treatment. Assuming he recovers, Muster will meet Boris Becker in today's final. Becker defeated Goran Ivanesevuc in yesterday's other semi-final.

Ivanisevic manages to hold nerve

Goran Ivanisevic survived a bizarre attack of nerves to overcome the unseeded Austrian Gilbert Schaller 4-6, 7-6, 7-5 and reach the semi- finals of the Monte Carlo Open yesterday.



City & Business: Sterling footwork

I never saw Jan Leschly when he was a tennis star, but I imagine he must have played like Boris Becker on a cocktail of speed and steroids: fast, aggressive and very, very energetic. No shuffling around on the baseline for Leschly, who now runs SmithKline Beecham. His game since taking over as chief executive in April has been all serve-and-volley. His peers at Glaxo, Wellcome and Zeneca look leaden-footed by comparison.
