Montoya wins subdued Grand Prix

MONZA, Italy -- Juan Montoya won Sunday's Italian Grand Prix on a somber day of auto racing at a track that is usually among the most boisterous in the sport.

The Colombian won for the first time in Formula One in a race preceded by an aborted action by drivers in which a no-passing rule was proposed.

The race was subdued not only because of the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington but because of Saturday's CART race in Germany in which star driver Alex Zanardi lost both his legs.

"I'm glad this weekend is over," driver Michael Schumacher said.

Doctors said today Zanardi's condition was no longer life threatening. Zanardi also sustained a small fracture of the pelvis and a concussion.

"The chances are very good that he will make it. His condition is critical, but it is not life threatening," said Dr. Gert Schroeter.

Doctors will attempt to take Zanardi off an "induced coma" designed to reduce the chances that trauma shock would lead to kidney or heart failure within 12 to 24 hours, Schroeter said.

Tennis to match balls to surfaces

A tournament's surface will determine which of three types of balls are used under a new International Tennis Federation rule prompted by powerful serves.

The balls will slow the power and speed of serves on hard courts and grass but speed the game on slower surfaces, such as clay.

The ITF also approved experimenting through the end of 2002 with a super tiebreaker.

It is used in place of a final set. The player who reaches 10 points first is the winner (must win by a two-point margin). Use of the tiebreaker is optional.
