1. Cup chatter: The Fed Cup is not just what Roger wears when he plays hockey. It suffers the same scheduling issues as its brother, the Davis Cup, yet lacks the history and sponsorship. It's had a hard time attracting the top players and squeezing itself into a crowded calendar. But like a dogged counterpuncher, the Fed Cup keeps fighting. And it's done well for itself recently. The events last weekend -- occurring during a dead spot on the WTA schedule -- drew familiar names and generated some compelling matches. Despite the sudden absence of Justine Henin on account of a broken finger, the Belgium-Estonia throwdown (note the pains we go to, avoiding use the confusing phrase "tie") drew a capacity crowd in Hasselt. Thanks to the heroics of Daniela Hantuchova, the Slovak Republic upset Jelena Jankovic and Serbia. Melanie Oudin, Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Liezel Huber joined forces to stage a gripping comeback/upset of a Russian side led by Elena Dementieva. Tracy Austin was in my

1. Move over, Kim Clijsters. The Belgian may have won the U.S. Open but she didn't even stage the most impressive tennis comeback result this month. Out of the sport since the mid-'90s, Kimiko Date Krumm of Japan returned in full this year and steadily climbed the rankings. On Sunday, a day before her 39th birthday, Date Krumm won her first title in 12 years, beating Daniela Hantuchova and Maria Kirilenko, among others, to take the Korean Open. "I honestly don't know where I get the energy from at my age," she says. And does anyone really doubt whether Justine Henin, a sapling at 27, can make an immediate impact?

Rafael Nadal's ascent to the top ranking has been accompanied by significant amount of press coverage -- even during an already crowded Olympic season. But, I was particularly struck by the video clip on the ATP Web site congratulating Rafa for this achievement. Full disclosure: I am a huge Rafa fan, but I am curious as to what is driving this. Is it due to Roger's incredible run of 237 weeks? Or is it something else? I can't imagine ATP doing this if Roger recaptures No. 1 next year, or even if Djokovic takes it, for that matter. Any insights on this? -- Tony Hooper, New York
