Look at Met's top seeds




        MEN

       • 1. Craig Boynton: An excellent clay-court player, Boynton is a teaching professional at Harpers Point Racket Club. Until 1994, Boynton played on the professional tour and later took over as Jim Courier's personal coach for three years. He is undefeated in three previous Met appearances, winning titles in 1995, '97 and '98.

        • 2. Jeff Wolf: A four-time Met champion (1989, '91, '93 and '94), Wolf is one victory away from tying his brother, Marty, and Charles Thomas for the most Met championships. A teaching professional at the Colonial Racket Club, Wolf played on the professional satellite tour for two years.

        • 3. Dan Kronauge: At 6-foot-4, 200 pounds, Kronauge is one of the strongest and hardest-hitting players in the tournament. He played on the professional satellite tour for three years before accepting a teaching position at Queen City Racket Club.

        WOMEN

        • 1. Kara Molony: The two-time defending Met champion, Molony is the heavy favorite to make it three in a row. A senior-to-be at the University of Cincinnati, Molony won 20 consecutive college matches and qualified to the NCAA Tournament, the first UC woman's tennis player to do so.

        • 2. Emilia Anderson: A recent graduate of Anderson High School, she has won numerous age-group championships along with the 1996 Division I state doubles championship. Anderson has a strong serve and excellent backhand. Will play for Stanford.

        • 3. Amy Frisch: The 1999 Met runner-up to Molony, Frisch played high school tennis at Notre Dame Academy. She also played at Nebraska, where she'll be a junior in September.
