Jennifer Capriati now has a title to go with her Grand Slam near misses.

The 14-year-old sensation scored a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 victory over Ros Fairbank yesterday in the final of an eight-player exhibition, the Mount Cranmore International in Conway, N.H.

"It sure feels good to win my first tournament," Capriati said after winning $25,000. "I'd really like to thank the fans for coming out -- they really supported me."

Capriati made an impressive European debut by reaching the French Open semifinals and the Wimbledon quarterfinals. Since turning pro in March, she has reached two other finals.

Asked how this compared to her Grand Slam experiences, Capriati said, "It definitely ranks high, especially because I won it, so this will be in my memory."

Capriati represents the United States this week in the Federation Cup in Atlanta before participating in the U.S. Open next month.

Capriati had another first yesterday when she teamed with Fairbank to win her first doubles title, defeating Kathy Rinaldi and Laura Gildemeister, 6-4, 7-6 (7-5).

She got off to a shaky start against Fairbank -- at 29 more than twice Capriati's age -- losing the first two games. But she broke serve in the fifth game and went on to win the first set easily.

Fairbank, keeping Capriati on the run in the 90-degree heat, broke the 13th-ranked player's serve twice in the second set. But she blew four set points before evening the match.

Fairbank said she felt good going into the third set because she had come from behind, but suddenly got tired and Capriati pulled away.

"The fans have been very enthusiastic and that's been nice," Fairbank said. "It would have been nice if I got some of that support, {but} it was the fairy tale story. . . . Everybody wanted Jennifer to take her first title at Mount Cranmore."

Gunze World: Gabriela Sabatini won the women's singles and Pete Sampras the men's for his first title.

Sabatini, ranked fifth, overwhelmed Ann Grossman, 6-0, 6-1, in less than an hour in Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium.

"I am quite satisfied with today's victory," she said. "Everything is working very well. . . . I made less errors."

Sabatini tallied only 13 unforced errors. Grossman did not hold serve in seven tries.

Sampras, ranked 18th, fired 10 aces in a 6-1, 6-4 victory over No. 46 Jaime Yzaga, who made the final when Wimbledon champion Stefan Edberg defaulted from their semifinal match with a knee injury.

Sampras fell behind by 15-40 in the final game, but battled back to force four deuces before ending it with a forehand winner.

Sampras and Mary Joe Fernandez lost in the mixed doubles final, 6-4, 3-6, 6-0, to Conchita Martinez and Todd Woodbridge.

Hall of Fame Championships: Pieter Aldrich, ranked 171st and in his first singles final, beat sixth-seeded Darren Cahill, 7-6 (12-10), 1-6, 6-1, in the grass-court final in Newport, R.I. Cahill, ranked 86th, appeared to have the momentum after trouncing Aldrich in the second set. But Aldrich broke Cahill's first two serves in the final set and coasted.

Swiss Open: In Gstaad, Martin Jaite defeated Sergi Bruguera, 6-3, 6-7 (5-7), 6-2, 6-2, for the title. Tenth-ranked Jaite withstood Bruguera's forceful ground strokes on the fast clay court and attacked the net on crucial points during the three-hour match.

"I knew he was tired, so I tried to move him a lot and then come to the net," said Jaite, seeded third. "This victory is very important to me since I've played well, and the draw was very difficult."

Swedish Open: In Bastad, Richard Fromberg took his second title with a 6-2, 7-6 win over local favorite Magnus Larsson. Top-seeded Sandra Cecchini, who also won the Swedish final in 1987, routed Csilla Bartos, 6-1, 6-2, for the women's title.

This 43rd edition of the Swedish Open could be the last at this south Swedish seaside town, Swedish Tennis Association officials said. The tournament drew only 21,500 fans compared with a record 41,000 in 1987, and the main sponsor has pulled out.

Several top Swedish players, including Edberg, skipped the tournament. Former No. 1 Mats Wilander made this his first tournament appearance in five months. He lost in the second round to Marcelo Filippini.
