Pete Sampras , went to Paris in May having also won the US Open and the Australian Open, the first player since Rod Laver to win three successive
Grand Slams. But he was knocked out of the French Open and was beaten again at Queen's Club in the Wimbledon warm-up tournament, offering encouragement to a field that two weeks ago included Jim Courier , Andre Agassi , Stefan Edbergand Goran Ivanisevic.

The bulls from the Indonesian islands of Sapudi and Madura are celebrities. They are feted, massaged and live like kings on a special diet of honey, herbs, eggs, chillies and beer. A prize bull is valued not merely for its pedigree but for its speed: they are racing animals.
Bull-racing dominates life on the two islands off the coast of eastern Java, and this film in the series of documentaries about unusual cultures follows the fortunes of two youngjockeys,
20-year-old champion Ayup and 12-year-old Sahmawi, as they prepare for the annual tournament. Training methods are closely guarded secrets and magicians are called upon to cast good-luck spells on their charges - and, sometimes, bad luck on other animals. Ayup's trainer, Hanan, says: "... if anybody messes with my bulls, I'll cut his throat."
The races are spectacular and dangerous, requiring skill and courage to ride the bulls. But this film, directed by John Bulmer , shows how the races are notjust a test of manhood but a statement of identity for both island communities.

It is 25 years since new late-night comedy series crept into a "regional opt-out" slot and quickly became cult viewing, a fresh marriage of the Goons' surrealism and the university humour of Beyond the Fringe.
Tonight a rerun of the very first series begins, starring John Cleese , Terry Jones ,
Michael Palin , Eric Idle , the late Graham Chapman and animator Terry Gilliam. From such immediate forerunners as Do Not Adjust
Your Set and At Last the Show a new landmark in British broadcast humour was born.
Tonight meet Arthur "Two Sheds" Jackson, follow
Picasso's in the Tour de France, and try not to die laughing at the world's funniest joke.
On Friday at 9.30pm on BBC2 there's a chance to see the 1990 Omnibus film on Monty Python dedicated to Chapman, who died during its production. Producer John Howard Davies
