Whether it's Andre Agassi and Jim Courier in the Davis Cup, or Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe battling on the senior tennis tour, the Palisades Tennis Club made its way onto the national television spotlight in the 1990s. But Ken Stuart, the man behind the dream of the Palisades Club, isn't quite ready to rest on his laurels. "We have plans for another venue to come here again. It's premature to say what that is, but the line of communication is wide open between me and the promoters and the ITF (International Tennis Federation)

Alicia Robinson Professional team tennis comes to the city today as the Newport Beach Breakers begin their second season at the Palisades Tennis Club. It took eight months of planning to get ready for the season. The matches make a mess of parking and take one of the courts out of commission, yet hundreds of spectators will come to each match to watch Breakers players such as Maria Sharapova, the teenage sensation who won Wimbledon Saturday, and Mike and Bob Bryan, the top-ranked men's doubles players in the world.

RICK DEVEREUX Members of the Palisades Tennis Club had an intrusion on their courts for a month. An outsider. An annoyance. A bother. The Newport Beach Breakers of World Team Tennis played their home matches on the stadium court at Palisades and had concession stands, bleachers and other fixtures take away courts where members could play. To top it all off, parking was obstructed as well. Now, a month after it all started, normalcy has returned. The parking lot is as it was. The bleachers are gone.

Bryce Alderton Lighting installation crews began diligently seeking answers Wednesday for the cause of a power outage, a day after a glitch causing the blackout forced some fans to relocate from their paid seats on Palisades Tennis Club's center court to a grassy knoll overlooking an outer court during the Newport Beach Breakers' World Team Tennis home debut Tuesday night. Ken Stuart, who bought the Newport Beach club in 1995, said crews located portions of burnt wires under the scoreboard.

Bryce Alderton The death of Hall of Famer and Newport Harbor High product George Yardley Thursday stirred memories of a man friends said put effort into everything he did.

Richard Dunn After an eight-year hiatus, World TeamTennis may return to Newport Beach in the summer of 2003 with Lindsay Davenport as a player and part owner of a team that would play its home matches at the Palisades Tennis Club. The facility at the Palisades Club, known as the John Wayne Tennis Club until 1995, played host to the Newport Beach Dukes from 1990 through '94. It was a highly successful franchise, mostly under Coach Greg Patton, the former UC Irvine men's tennis coach.

The latest World TeamTennis franchise to land in Newport Beach -- it will become official on Feb. 6 when the league announces the team -- will probably be coached by Newport's Robert Van't Hof, and if the unnamed franchise is successful over a 3- to 5-year period, it could move from the Palisades Tennis Club to the Bren Events Center at UC Irvine. But that's down the road. At the moment, World TeamTennis co-founder, director and ambassador Billie Jean King is warming up to Newport Beach like the afternoon weather sometimes.

Richard Dunn Heads turned and jaws dropped last weekend at the Palisades Tennis Club, where a computerized ball machine, specifically designed for the club's practice court, held court. The Playmate ball machine, reportedly one of only eight manufactured in the world, can provide a tennis player with just about any shot desired, at any pace and repeat it as often as you set the dial. There is no sweeper or picking up balls with funnels and conveyor belts working alongside the Playmate, which came with a $16,000 price tag, but Palisades owner/operator Ken Stuart believes it's money well spent.

NEWPORT BEACH ? The words were simple, yet stern coming from A.G. Longoria, the Sage Hill School girls' tennis coach. "Here we go," he said, not shouting but loud enough to be heard. "One point at a time." He was talking to his No. 3 doubles team of Salen Andrews and Raya Tasker, who were involved in a thrilling set with Walnut at the Balboa Bay Club Racquet Club Tuesday. Andrews and Tasker, who were playing in just their seventh set of the season together, trailed, 5-1, in a tiebreaker to 10, but started to rally.
