Harsh Words for Pierce

BARCELONA -- Spain's Arantxa Sanchez Vicario, the new French Open women's tennis champion, slammed her final opponent Mary Pierce for pre-match arrogance. Sanchez Vicario, the world No. 2, took her second French title with a win in Sunday's final over 12th-ranked Pierce. "When she beat Steffi (Graf) she seemed to think that she had it sewn up but she had one more match to play to be champion," Sanchez Vicario said Monday on her return home. "My victory gave Mary Pierce a smack in the face and now she should have a bit more respect for her opponents."
